This is a great cookware set for any home cook. Use the smaller saucepans for hot cereal, beans, blanched vegetables and sauces. The largest saucepan is just right for boiling potatoes, artichokes or cooking macaroni, rice, or other grains. The skillets have an excellent nonstick surface for healthy cooking and easy cleanup. This Farberware Classic set combines today’s technology with traditional styling and the quality that Farberware has delivered for decades. The full cap base on the saucepans and saucepot features a thick aluminum core fully surrounded by stainless steel for rapid, even heating. The domed, self-basting glass lids with eye-catching knobs fit snugly inside the pan, reducing drips. The phenolic handles with their iconic styling are heat resistant on the stove top and is oven safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
