This seven-piece set has all the essentials. In stainless steel, these items have a classic look and the quality performance you expect of Cuisinart products. The stainless steel cooking surface does not discolor, react with food, or alter flavors. They're great for classic cooking techniques like slow simmers, rolling boils, and reduction of liquids. An aluminum encapsulated base heats quickly and spreads heat evenly, while riveted handles stay cool. Tight-fitting covers seal in moisture and nutrients for healthier, more flavorful results, every time you cook.
