Stainless steel actually refers to a family of steel alloys. To be called stainless steel, an alloy must contain a minimum of 10.5% chromium, and it is chromium that causes stainless steel to be resistant to rusting. Many stainless steels contain other metals such as nickel as well. Nickel adds additional corrosion resistance, hardness and durability to stainless steel; therefore it is common in cookware. Unfortunately, stainless steel containing nickel is usually non-magnetic; therefore some stainless steel cookware is not suitable for induction cooking. When purchasing stainless steel cookware for induction cooking, you should look for a statement from the manufacturer or retailer indicating that the cookware is induction-ready. Alternatively, you can test the cookware with a magnet.
All of your food will cook evenly without embarrassing burnt spots. Because it heats up quickly it also saves a bit on energy making it environmentally friendly. This type of cookware is usually oven and broiler safe which adds to its versatility in the kitchen. The anodized aluminum itself is heat resistant up to the melting point of aluminum or about 1,221 degrees Fahrenheit, however, you need to check the rivets and handles to make sure that they are oven safe. Always check your manual before oven or broiler use.

This is sleek, contemporary cookware with flowing lines and attention paid to every detail. It is a quality product good for the home cook or professional chef.
The handles on this cookware set are rubberized and stay cool to the touch. The rubberized handles make it easy to get a firm grasp on your pot when lifting. The stay cool handles will eliminate the need for having to use a pot holder when you are lifting. Pot holders can make lifting awkward and there is a much greater chance for the pot to slip out of your hands. The set also features copper plated rings to give you the option of hanging up your cookware if you happen to have limited cabinet space.
