Pros & Cons
This T-Fal Initiatives 10-Piece Nonstick Inside and Out set consists of a 7-1/2-inch saute pan, a 9-1/4-inch saute pan, a 10-3/4-inch saute pan, a 1-quart saucepan with lid, a 2-quart saucepan with lid, a covered 5-1/3-quart Dutch oven. The cookware is stylish with charcoal gray exteriors and charcoal black interiors. This 10-piece cookware set delivers even heat distribution for reliable cooking by allowing for healthy and low-fat cooking. They are nonstick inside and out for easy cleaning.
The glass lids with vents are perfect to check on how everything is cooking. The ergonomic handles are easy to grip and are comfortable to lift when the pot is heavy. The handles are made of tough plastic that stay cool on the stovetop and are oven-safe to 350 degrees F. They are a breeze to clean, just nothing sticks to them. The glass lids are domed and have knobs that adjust to vent steam. The set includes a steamer basket that can be useful however it could scratch the Teflon coating, if not used properly.
Some users complain that lids are not interchangeable and they do not fit properly. There are a few reviewers who recorded that pans are somewhat thin and may have hot and cold spots.
All in all, it is a great starter set for everyday cooking with a non stick surface. The Dutch oven can double up as a pot for cooking pasta, simmering stock, or making soup, and a steamer. As long as you follow proper care instructions and avoid using metal utensils they can last a long time.
