If you’re just starting to put together a kitchen full of equipment, you won’t always have a lot of money to spend on covering the basics. A well-stocked kitchen requires a lot of stuff and that means making sure you get value for your money.
So, when I came across this Cook N Home 15-Piece Non-stick Stay Cool Handle Cookware Set I was, naturally, intrigued. It’s a very reasonable price on Amazon but could it provide a quality cooking experience at that price? So, I put it to the test.
Presentation And Reasonable Quality
I’d be lying if I said this set was made to last an eternity, it’s not. But it is surprisingly chunky and everything that comes in the box fits together well. The manufacturer hasn’t cut corners to save a few coins.
My only real reservation with it is that the non-stick coating is a little fragile but to be fair to Cook N Home this is true in many more expensive cookware sets. The trick to keeping that non-stick coat is not to use sharp implements inside it.
So, What’s In The Box?
Well, your money buys you a 1 quart and a 2-quart saucepan, a 3-quart casserole pot, a 5-quart Dutch oven, and an 8 inch and 10-inch frying pan! Lids are supplied as appropriate and as a nice bonus there are some nylon utensils for stirring, frying and serving with.
I have to say that I am very surprised at how much bang for the buck there is in this starter cookware set. It should last for 3-5 years and that gives you plenty of time to save up for something even better next time around.
