Don’t let the price put you off this 12 Piece Stainless steel cookware set by Cook N Home.  I found the pans to be excellent value for money and a great buy if you are on a budget.  I can guarantee you will be surprised at the quality if you purchase this set. They can even go into the oven up to 500 degrees and the lids up to 350 degrees.  Just to top this set off they come they look great and benefit from clear lips so you can see the food cooking.

Strengths

The bottoms of the pots and pans are nice and thick, and when I tried using them they didn’t burn like some other models I have tried in this price range. This cookware set is easy to wash and does not need course abrasives. This set has a nice finish. They are a lot better than expected due to the price. Works just as well or even better than higher priced sets. The design is very attractive. Lids have air hole vents. The size and design are very practical. Handles are not long, good for cooking in a small space. Fairly heavy construction. Easy to stack neatly.

Weaknesses

As probably expected from pans in this price range there are a few weaknesses but nothing too drastic. Metal utensils can cause some scratching in the pans if you are not careful so i would recommend sticking to either wood or plastic. The handles are hollow tube aluminum which can feel a little flimsy but they will function without problems. The lids are made of a thin glass which once again work fine but you might need to give extra care when moving them around or placing them in the washing machine. There are only two pots with long handles, the rest have short handles which can cause problem if you have problems lifting heavy thing.

Summary 

The Cook N Home set is reasonably priced and cooks all types of food really well. However if you are looking for a set that are going to last a long time then you may want to invest a bit more and find a set that it is a bit more durable. If you are looking for a set of pans that offers excellent value for money that will last for a couple of years then you will not be disappointed with this set from Cook N Home.
