This cookware set consists of a 3-1/2 quart sauté pan, 1.
5 quart and 3-quart saucepans, 8- and 10-inch skillets, an 8-quart stockpot, and steamer insert.
It is made of stainless steel with a ratio of 18% chromium and 10% nickel, which makes it thicker than most of its rivals on the market today.
The 18/10 combination is the best stainless steel grade for cookware, making the Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro a great investment that will surely cover all your cooking needs.
Advantages In general, stainless steel is not a very good conductor of heat.
With your average stainless steel cookware set, your cooking time may be extended.
However, the Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro's aluminum core which is placed between two layers of stainless steel solves this problem.
With this set, simply preheat the pans at medium heat - there is no need to use high heat for cooking.
Another benefit of this set is that the handles do not get overly hot while cooking.
The handles were also ergonomically designed, making it easier to shake, flip and move the pans.
No shaky handles to worry about either - they are riveted tightly to the cookware, elimating the risk for serious injury.
The Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro is dishwater safe so cleaning up is a breeze.
If you prefer to wash the pots and pans by hand, you only need to use dishwashing detergent, hot water, and a good sponge.
Stuck on food comes right off and stains are removed completely - leaving you with a sparkling clean, new-looking pan every time.
The lids are also interchangeable - and they can be used to cover the skillet.
A unique feature is the rolled edges of the pots and pans, which prevent liquids and sauces from pouring down the sides.
You can also use this cookware inside the oven because it is oven safe up to 500 degrees fahrenheit.
The set t is also safe to use on induction ranges.
What's more, the Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro looks perfect in your modern kitchen because of its classy, elegant brushed exterior.
What Others Say Most consumers who have used the Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro rate it at 5 stars.
However, there are a few who have problems with food sticking to the pans.
This seems to be an exception, not the rule.
There are others who complain about the handle lids rusting or receiving cookware sets that do not have smooth finishes.
Again, these are not common experiences, and perhaps those who have complained more likely got bad stock, than anything else.
Conclusion With all the advantages that the Cuisinart MCP-12 MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-piece Cookware Set offers, it is proving to be a better cookware than its non-stick counterparts.
Stainless steel cookware is more durable and more versatile.
Because the pans are oven safe, you can even use the pans for roasting.
And you'll never have to worry about non-stick coating peeling off and getting into your food.
