Cuisinart MCP-12N MultiClad Pro review
The set features a stockpot, a 3 quart saucepan and another half the size, two skillets, a sauté pan, and the steamer add – on. There exists a sleek and professional – looking handle attached to every piece of the set, which is still built for ergonomic comfort and good grip. The handles are also designed to not heat up, and to not fall off.
Each piece of the set is buffed and polished to a mirror finish, and boasts not only durability from its aluminum core surrounded by stainless steel, but also a resistance to corrosion. All the stainless steel lids are tight fits with their corresponding pots / pans, allowing each piece to be used in ovens with temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit or 260 degrees Celsius / Centigrade.
The cookware set’s stainless steel construction offers it the benefit of durability, as well as corrosion resistance. Thanks to its design, it can stay in the kitchen for a good, long cooking stint, and it is unlikely to be damaged unless intentional damage is actually sought for. Assorted pieces being included in the set lend it versatility, and the set is adequate for a large portion of kitchen duties.
Being made of aluminum and stainless steel also makes it a bit more affordable than, say, titanium – cast cookware. However, as it is made of those materials, it doesn’t quite enjoy the perks of being made from something else, such as Teflon’s nonstick surface. It also gets discolored rather easily if the heat used when cooking with it isn’t controlled.
As a set of cookware pieces, the MCP – 12N MultiClad Pro is designed for anyone with an interest in cooking. The set itself however will work best with someone who has a bit of experience, as stainless steel cookware requires a bit more heat management due to the material’s being not so conducive of heat.
All in all, the Cuisinart MCP – 12N MultiClad Pro Stainless 12 – Piece Cookware Set is a solid addition to any kitchen. It boasts a good bit of staying power in the kitchen, reliability and durability, ease of handling, and good performance coupled with a plethora of options. The set’s overall utility is a little bogged down by issues related to its material, but those disadvantages are fully outweighed by the advantages of the steel used, and the structure itself
