I work at a restaurant and have been using cookware of different brands and model. Besides, I get an opportunity to interact with colleagues who have their own opinions and reasons for liking a particular product. Therefore, we indulge in several discussions about cookware items and sets. It was during one of the last discussion during lunch at office that one of the friends recommended Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set as one of the best cookware sets available in the market. She uses this product and is extremely happy with it. Therefore, I decided to review this product.
Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set has a tri-clad structure. The bases of the cookware items are made using three layers. The three layers that make up the base of these items are stainless steel, aluminum and stainless steel. The exterior of the item is polished and has a stainless steel look. Moreover, the interiors of the item are satin polished. The set includes the following –

Features of Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set
The most important feature of this cookware set is its tri-clad structure. The aluminum layer of the tri-clad provides the kind of heat conduction that is required for browning your food properly. Besides, the stainless steel layers allow better control to you over the process of cooking.
The cookware set is extremely versatile and you can use it over the broiler or you can safely put it in the oven without worrying about causing any damage. Moreover, you can wash these in the dishwasher by using the conventional method of washing.
Easy to Use
The handles of the cookware are cold to touch and you can be sure that you will not burn your hands trying to operate these cookware items.
Can be used for Induction Cooktop
One of the best things about using the items of this cookware set is that they can be used with induction cooktops as well. Most of the cookware sets that are available at a comparable price offer a similar functionality cannot be used with magnetically functioning induction cooktops. In all the available variety, this cookware set gives you a little more than what is expected of it.
High Performance and Convenient Cooking
The cooking performance and convenience that this cookware set is capable of giving you is plain excellent. However, you must know how to use it to get the best out of these. Rough use and cooking at inappropriate temperature are the fundamental reasons why cookware set do not perform as expected and do not give the kind of results that you would wish them to give you.
Unlike several other cookware sets, you can stack the different products available as part of the cookware set and stack them up in the cabinet. You do not have to worry about any kind of scratching or damage as the cookware set is well-equipped to handle this.
Like I said, I was introduced to this product by a colleague and the highlight of the discussion about this product revolved around how convenient it was to use the items of this product. You can easily fit the lid of one pan onto another. Therefore, you will not have to worry if you break one of the lids as you have the replacement at hand already. The lids have a tapered glass fitted onto it.
Therefore, you can monitor the food as it is cooking. In this way, you do not have to lift the lid every now and then and the moisture and nutrients are retained. Moreover, the lids are also heavy enough to sustain the function that they are made for.
The second reason that makes this cookware set the winner is the fact that it is extremely easy to clean. With cookware, cleaning is particularly important. The usage of these items is such that they will need to be cleaned rather regularly. You cannot escape the cleaning process. The fact that this cookware set can be washed using both the traditional washing method and can be put in the dishwasher makes it extremely easy for the user to do the cleaning.
Lastly, this cookware set can be used on all cook tops. Most cooktops that are available in the market cannot be used with induction cooktops. However, this is not the case with Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set. You can safely use the items of this cookware set with induction cooktop and enjoy cooking in all the possible forms. You are sure to enjoy the cooking experience that this cookware set promises to offer you. If you live in an apartment and are looking for a compact and extremely useful set, then this is a must-buy for you.
