Your complete kitchen assortment! This cookware set is available in your choice of copper or bronze colored nonstick interior and features a black high-fired porcelain enamel exterior, ideal for all types of meal preparation. Made in USA, the premium DuPont teflon platinum colored nonstick interior coating is PFOA-free and provides easy cooking and cleanup.
Before using your cookware for the first time, hand-wash with warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly. Season by lightly rubbing cooking oil onto the nonstick surface and heating the cookware over medium heat for two or three minutes. When cool, hand-wash in warm, soapy water and rinse.
Your cookware is dishwasher-safe. However, we recommend hand-washing and drying to preserve the porcelain enamel finish. The new nonstick color coating technology by DuPont ensures easy cleanup with just soap and warm water. Should burnt grease or food residue collect on the surface, it can usually be removed with warm water and a mild detergent using a soft scrub. Do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool or coarse scouring pads. Use cleaning materials that are recommended for nonstick surfaces only. The vessels and handles are both oven safe up to 350'F (176'C).
Do not use nonstick aerosol cooking sprays in your nonstick cookware. They will leave a residue, which may be difficult to remove, and they will cause foods to stick to the sauté pan. To preserve the look and performance of your cookware, we recommend using wood, nylon or silicone utensils when cooking. Regardless of how hard a nonstick surface is, using metal utensils or sharp objects on any nonstick surface will damage the cooking surface over time. Cook or boil using low to medium heat only.
Do not overheat empty cookware or allow gas flames to extend up the sides of the cookware and overheat the handles. Do not expose handles to a direct flame or prolonged heat source. Do not use under an oven broiler unit. The glass lids should not be placed on cold surfaces or immersed in cold water when hot. Avoid sudden temperature changes such as immersing hot cookware in cold water. Always let the cookware cool before washing.

How much cookware you need depends largely upon how often you cook, how many people you cook for and how elaborate your meals tend to be.

On the other hand, it can be very easy to accumulate far more cookware than you actually need.
Most people will who do even a small amount of cooking will find a lot of uses for a couple of different size saucepans and a couple of different size skillets. Tight-fitting lids for the saucepans are also important when preparing dishes such as rice.
