Chef's Secret 16pc Red Aluminum Cookware Set Review

Updated on January 25, 2012

I have had a number of cooking sets throughout my life. I enjoy cooking with all sorts of cookware, such as stainless steel, copper, aluminium and so much more. I found one set that I like in particular and that's the 16 piece cookware set from Chef's. Its got some great features and is an affordable choice for those cooking enthusiast's whom are just getting started!

What do you get with this set?

Set includes 1 quart saucepan with glass top lid, 1 and 1/2 quart saucepan with glass top lid, 2 quart saucepan with glass top lid, a 5 and 1/2 quart pot with glass top lid, one 8 inch fry pan, and 6 nylon kitchen utensil set. The kitchen utensil set is a nice extra bonus for those who are just starting out becuase it includes a pasta fork, a slotted spoon, a solid spoon, a slotted strainer, a slotted spatula, and a ladle. All utensil's are made of a hard nylon, which are dishwasher safe.

Pros

Clear vented lids - feature allows you to monitor cooking without having to remove lid, also provides for an elegant look to your cookware.

Pots and pans made with industrial heavy gauge aluminum- A safer alternative for the health conscious cook, the aluminum base is scratch and stick resistant. The stick resistant surface provides for an enjoyable cooking experience and is less work to clean up!

Limited Lifetime Warranty- the warranty covers pans and Chef stands by their products.

Cons

Riveted handles- the riveted handles can make it difficult to clean, and food can build up around rivets if not cleaned properly.

Longevity- this is a great set for someone who is just starting out or is not a big cooker, I don't feel that this set will last forever but for the price its a good starter set.

Alternatives

I recommend this set for those who are looking for their first set of cookware, or for someone that does not cook a whole lot. There are some other alternatives that you can look for; like stainless steel, copper, teflon, ceramic to name a few. When shopping around make sure the cookware you choose fits your cooking needs. I hope the information I provided was helpful in your search for that perfect cookware. Make it a stay at home night, and enjoy cooking again!
