We actually had a tough time ruling out the Anolon Advanced Bronze 11-Piece Cookware Set, but in the end, it came down to both the price and the fact that the Anolon set isn't PFOA-free.
But, now for what we really like about this set... every piece is durable and useful and the pots and pans heat and cook evenly. The non-stick surface is truly incredible and this entire set really can stand up to a lot of wear and tear.
Oven safe: Yes, to 350°F.
Induction safe: Nope, sorry.
Lid: There are 4 tempered-glass lids included with the set. They have sturdy, riveted handles that remain cool, but none of them fit the frying pans.
Handles: The riveted handles are covered with a silicone grip and remain cool-to-the-touch. It does mean you can only heat the oven so high if you want to put these in, but that's sort of a given.
Base material: The hard-anodized aluminum base is both solid and lightweight, making it a great option for a variety of cooking needs.
PFOA-free: Yes (in the finished product).
Nonstick material: The T-fal scratch-resistant titanium coating is PFOA-, Lead-, and Cadmium-free - for your safety. And, you'll find it's super effective across all the pieces in this set.
Dishwasher safe: Yes, which is nice, but...
Cleaning: The construction of this non-stick cookware set makes it suitable for dishwasher cleaning, though doing so does negate the warranty.
But, there's really no reason to put these non-stick pots and pans in the dishwasher; you can easily wash them by hand as nothing sticks.
Warranty: Limited lifetime warranty.
Price: C'mon, less than $90 for 12 pieces? Where are you going to find another deal as good as this? Given the quality, you probably won't. The only thing to decide is whether you want to pay more for the complete 17-piece set. Want our opinion? At this price, why not?
