Cook N Home NC-00359 Nonstick Ceramic Coating 10-Piece Cookware Set

Cook N Home hasn’t been in the business as long as T-fal but it has quickly made a name for itself in the online market. That is why its products are usually “top-rated” in the market because not only do they provide durable items but also ones that make cooking a lot easier. This set is everything you would need in a kitchen in terms of cooking.

The set comes with an aluminum body that surrounds the ceramic and it is fairly thick at 1/8 inch thick. The thickness is perfect for heat conductivity and for heat to travel throughout the pots and leave no hotspot. The build of the pots are sturdy and they are a bit on the heavier side which is actually a good thing. The coating inside of the pots are white so there are chances of the color fading depending on what you cook. It is recommended you don’t use steel utensils when cooking as you may produce scratch so plastic and wooden utensils are better. Which is why this set is not on top of our list but it does make cooking a lot easier.
