This cookware set is made by Faberware on Paula Deen's behalf, and comes with the choice of lovely soft colors - speckled egg blue, butter, orange, red, oatmeal and olive - Paula Deen says she was inspired by the old cookware she used to find in antique shops.
Here's what you get in your 12 piece set:
* two covered saucepans - 1 quart and 2 quarts
* a covered saute pan of 2.75 quarts
* a 6 quart covered stockpot
* two skillets, one 8 inch and one 10 inch
* a slotted spoon and a slotted turner
The aluminum in the pans helps it heat quickly and evenly, the enamel outside is stain resistant, and the lids are made from clear tempered glass. The handles are rubberised so they don't get hot to touch, and each handle has a copper ring at the end, so you can hang up the pots when not in use.
Because of the teflon nonstick interior, Paula Deen recommends you only use wooden, nylon or plastic utensils (the two turners that are included in this set are nylon), and that you hand wash all the pots. Because of the porcelain experior do not use these pots on glass stovetops, but they are fine on electric solid plates and gas stoves. The pans are oven safe to 350 F.
As you can see from the prices below, this set is considerably cheaper than equivalent Cuisinart cookware sets but in my opinion does the job just as well. The Paula Deen 12 piece nonstick cookware set is her bestseller.
