Nonstick cookware can be a time saver for practiced cooks and newbies alike. Yet, with recent concerns about the chemicals involved in some nonstick technologies, many cooks are concerned about whether the convenience of nonstick cookware is worth the potential chemical effects on the food they eat.

Luckily, ceramic is an ages old, natural solution for nonstick cooking. And with a complete cookware set such as the SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set, stocking a kitchen with easy-to-use, nonstick cookware is simple for any cook.

Features

The SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set is a versatile cookware set made of lightweight aluminum, with white ceramic coating on the interior for easy cooking and cleanup. The saute pan and skillet also sport a textured pan surface called Cushion Smart technology to further improve their nonstick performance.

The dishwasher safe set includes shatter resistant glass lids, and each lid has a rubberized, easy to grip handle that coordinates with the marine blue finish on the cookware itself. So, the 12-piece set is both functional and stylish for a wide array of kitchen decors. Plus, the cadmium-, PTFE- and PTOA-free cookware is oven safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

The set includes the following pieces:

  • 1.5 quart saucepan with lid
  • 3 quart saucepan with lid
  • 6 quart stockpot with lid
  • 8 inch open deep skillet
  • 10 inch open deep skillet
  • 3 quart saute pan with lid
  • 1 nylon slotted turner
  • 1 nylon slotted spoon

Strengths

The SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set stands out among ceramic cookware sets thanks to the unique finish on some of its pieces. The Cushion Smart technology improves the performance of the saute pans and skillets beyond typical expectations for similar ceramic cookware. The cookware also is remarkably durable compared to other ceramic and nonstick options, and the ceramic withstands stains despite its white surface. Plus, the rubber grips on the glass lids protect even novice cooks from accidentally losing their lids in the middle of cooking.

Weaknesses

Despite its durability and stain resistance, the SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set is not without its flaws. For one, the cookware is oven safe only to 350 degrees. So, cooks who are used to browning a dish on the stove top before transferring it to the oven to finish cooking may find this cookware limiting. Also, while the cookware is dishwasher safe, hand washing is recommended to protect the ceramic interior. While cleanup will still be easier thanks to the nonstick surface, busy cooks may dislike the hands-on upkeep suggested to prolong the set’s nonstick functionality.

Summary 

For everyday cooking, few cookware sets make kitchen setup as easy as does the SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set. However, cooks who require their pans to transfer to the oven may want to consider more-traditional materials for their cookware, and busy cooks may want to choose a set that stand up better to the dishwasher. Otherwise, the SilverStone Ceramic CXi Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set is a wonderful set to build or round out a cook’s everyday kitchen arsenal.
