This 10-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 lids seal in moisture and nutrients for healthier, more flavorful results, every time you cook. Lifetime warranty.
