In case you are wondering, the pots/covered sauce pans are a 5.5 quart Dutch oven (the one with rounded handles), and a 3.2 and 1.1 quart covered sauce pans. The larger sauté pan is 10.5 inches and the smaller one is 8 inches. That’s good variety of sizes and shapes for just about any cook.
I’ve been enjoying my set. The cornmeal shrimp I made using the 10.5 inch pan was fabulous and the smallest pot did beautifully when I put it to the test melting sugar and other ingredients for my No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Desserts.
A few practical notes from my experience cooking with the T-fal Cookware, because, after all, I’m all about the practical side of things:
- The attractive rubber-coated handles are great too, says a cook who has burned her hands too many times, when forgetting to grab a potholder before touching the metal handle on a pot or pan on the stove.
- Each sauté pan has a neat “heat indicator” at its center. When the pan is cool, you can see the writing and the design inside the red circle. Once the pan is pre-heated to the right temperature to begin cooking, the circle turns darker red and the lettering and design seem to disappear. They “come back” when the pan cools down – like magic if you ask me! In the second picture below, the larger pan (on the right) was heated; by the time I got the picture, the lettering and design were coming back, but you can still see a difference between the cool and hot pan indicators.
