Pros and Cons
The copper exterior and aluminum core of the Cuisinart copper cookware conducts heat superbly, it responds to minute changes in heat which affords the chef an enormous amount of control over cooking temperature and timing, it also results to heat and energy efficiency because of the quick heat transfer. The aluminum core extends until the sides of the cookware which results to even distribution of heat and heat accumulation that is necessary to evenly cook the food. The stockpot has a large room which is ideal for simmering stocks, stews and soups.
The cookware has tight fitting lids which are necessary to maintain a consistent temperature and a lot of moisture inside the pot so that the food can cook properly. The stock pot and pans have an 18/10 grade stainless steel and has a mirror finish which allows for better food monitoring. The tapered rims of the cookware prevents drips when food or sauces are being poured. The tri-ply construction makes the utensils very sturdy and durable so they can last for a very long time.
The handles can get noticeably hot during use so it’s best to always use pot holders for protection, a better insulation could have helped the design. Like all copper cookware, discoloration is a problem if you are particular about the upkeep of the cookware’s appearances. There is a considerable amount of exposed copper so it is best not to put it in an automatic dishwasher because the soap used in dishwashers could tarnish the copper finish. You need to be mindful to remove the protective film which comes with the cookware’s packaging before first use, they can be very stubborn and difficult to remove if they come into contact with flame from the stove top or they get exposed to direct heat, there is a good chance that you won’t be able to remove the stains that will be left behind by the film.
