What's the best set of cookware 10 or 12-piece set

Updated on March 30, 2016

I love to cook so this question was a good one to answer. A good pan can make the difference between a perfect meal and disaster. The pans listed in this article sell for between $100-800 dollars for the set. I have both the Analon and some of the Revere Ware Copper Clad pans myself.

Analon 12 pc Set

Analon 12 piece Set

    • Includes; 2 Qt. and 3 Qt. Covered Saucepans, 4-Quart covered saucepan with lid, 10 Qt. Covered Stockpot, 8" and 10" Open Skillets, 12"/5 Qt. Covered Saute with Helper Handle
    • Restaurant tested by professional chefs, DuPont's Autograph® 2 surpasses all other standard nonstick formulas by delivering enduring nonstick performance - inside and outside the pan with superior durability that stands up to the rigors of professional ki
    • SureGrip¿ Handles, a combination of 18/10 stainless steel and silicone rubber are durable and ergonomic, providing a soft, cool, confident grip. Oven safe to 400°F.
    • Break-resistant, domed-shaped lid allows constant monitoring without losing heat, flavors or nutrients.

These pans are really nice to cook with. They are a bit pricey. They retail for around $600.00 but they can be bought online for about $260.00

I added a larger 12" saute pan to this set.
