A wonderful starter set for anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this 10-piece collection of cookware by Cooks Standard provides an array of everyday essentials. The set consists of a 1-1/2-quart covered saucepan, a 3-quart covered saucepan, an 8-inch and 10-inch open skillet, an 8-quart covered stockpot, and a universal covered steamer insert that fits both the 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart pan. Use the saucepans for making homemade marinara sauce, the stock pot for boiling pasta or cooking soups and stews, and the skillets for making pancakes or sauteing vegetables. The steamer insert allows for healthfully steaming broccoli, pea pods, and other fresh vegetables.
Beautifully designed, the three-layer metal cookware features an interior and exterior layer of premium-grade 18/10 stainless steel with a multi-element alloy aluminum core (along the bottom and up the sides) for fast, even heating and thorough heat distribution. Even more, the brushed stainless-steel exterior resists scratches for long-lasting good looks, whether on the stovetop or hanging from a pot rack. The cookware’s solid stainless-steel handles come riveted for strength, offer an ergonomic shape for a comfortable grip, and feature air-flow technology to help them stay cooler to the touch than typical handles. Secure-fitting stainless-steel lids for the pots and steamer insert offer added convenience, working to trap in heat and moisture for efficient cooking and delicious results. The cookware can be used on all stovetop surfaces, including induction, and it withstands an oven’s heat up to 500 degrees F. When finished, the multi-ply clad stainless-steel cookware cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher, and it carries a limited lifetime warranty.

From the Manufacturer
Cooks Standard Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
Beautifully crafted from durable stainless steel, this 10-piece cookware set from Cooks Standard not only offers stylish good looks, but it also provides exceptional cooking convenience. A thoughtful gift idea for anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, the collection supplies an array of everyday essentials.
- 8-inch open skillet
- 10-inch open skillet
- 1-1/2-quart covered saucepan
- 3-quart covered saucepan
- 8-quart covered stockpot
- Universal covered steamer insert (fits both the 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart saucepans)
Use the saucepans to make breakfast oatmeal or homemade marinara sauce, to cook pasta or rice, or to heat up a side of vegetables. With the steamer insert in place, the saucepans can be used to healthfully steam-cook anything from green beans, sugar-snap peas, and asparagus to broccoli, carrots, and baby red potatoes. The stockpot comes in handy when cooking a large batch of soup, stew, or chili. Due to its large size, the stock pot also works well for boiling corn on the cob or creating aromatic stocks with fresh herbs. Finally, the open 8-inch and 10-inch skillets provide wide flat bases and gently curved sides that allow for flipping omelets or sliding grilled cheese sandwiches gracefully from the pan to a plate.
What is Multi-Ply Clad Metal Construction?
Multi-ply clad metal construction is a combination of 18/10 surgical stainless steel with a multi-element aluminum core that creates a permanent bond of metal, so heat passes through the whole pan body from the bottom up the side walls, not just at the bottom, for maximum cooking performance.
Durable Stainless Steel with Even-Heating Aluminum Core
As part of Cooks Standard’s Multi-Ply Clad Stainless Steel cookware, the collection features three layers of clad metal for high-quality performance and excellent cooking results. The interior surface of the cookware provides a smooth, hard layer of premium-grade 18/10 stainless steel, while the stainless-steel exterior offers an elegant mirror-polished finish for enhanced visual appeal.
Best of all, an inner core of multi-element alloy aluminum comes sandwiched between the interior and exterior layer of stainless steel for faster heating and excellent heat distribution. The aluminum core extends from the bottom all the way up the side walls for total coverage. It’s the best of both–durable stainless steel for strength combined with the fast, thorough heating of aluminum.
Stay-Cool Handles with Air-Flow Technology
Thoughtfully designed, the cookware’s solid stainless-steel handles come riveted for strength and provide an open V-shaped design with air-flow technology that keeps the handle cooler and more comfortable to hold when cooking on the stovetop. The long handles on the pans and the generous loop side handles on the pots make the vessels easy to move around on the stovetop or to safely lift and carry, even when full. Though the handles stay cooler to the touch, pot holders or oven mitts are still recommended.
The cookware’s matching stainless-steel lids fit securely, helping to trap in heat, moisture, and nutrients, plus they come with loop handles for safe, simple placement or removal. Another thoughtful detail includes the cookware’s scratch-resistant stainless-steel bases, which come with a brushed finish and that can be safely used on any type of stovetop, including gas, electric, ceramic glass, even induction. Oven-safe up to 500 degrees F, the cookware offers outstanding versatility, transitioning effortlessly from cooking on the stovetop to browning or finishing in the oven (not broiler safe).
Whether cooking up a storm for the holidays or entertaining friends on the weekend, or simply making after-work meals for the family, the 10-piece cookware set provides just the right pieces to make all your culinary endeavors a pleasure. When finished, the pieces clean up easily by hand or in the dishwasher and hanging holes on the handles allow for showcasing the pieces from a pot rack when not in use. Sleek and stylish, Cooks Standard’s Multi-Ply Clad Stainless Steel line of cookware carries a limited lifetime warranty.
