This cookware set 11462 is an exceptional value, including all of the pans needed to equip your kitchen with the most used cooking pieces. It includes saucepans for whisking a homemade sauce or cooking your morning oatmeal, a big stockpot for soups, stews or boiling pasta, and skillets that will help you turn out perfect crepes or a simple grilled cheese sandwich. The set also includes a saute pan, a wide, straight-sided pan that can perform many of the functions of a skillet but features deep sides for extra capacity - perfect for one dish meals. Start your dish in this pan by sauteing onions and browning meat, then add your liquid and other ingredients into the same pan to finish on the stovetop or in the oven. The TOTAL Food Release System of Hi-Low wave technology and DuPont Autograph Nonstick, provides extraordinary food release and exceptional durability making the nonstick safe for use with metal utensils. Plus, nonstick exteriors make cleanup quick and easy.
