Features of the CeraStone PFS1023 Ceramic Cookware Set :
The following are the most features and specifications of CeraStone PFS1023 Pressure Forged 10-Piece Ceramic Non Stick Cookware Set.
Aluminium with ceramic inner coating
This nonstick cookware is made from thin aluminium. The two fry pans have a 4mm thickness while the four sauté pans have a 5mm thickness. The reason that the aluminium is so incredibly thin, is to heat up food quickly. The inside of each pan is coated with a thin layer of ceramic, so food does not come into contact directly with the aluminium. The set is also PTFE and PFOA free, so is non toxic and will not tarnish food. The ceramic inner layer will also not scratch or mark easily.
All of the cookware features Bakelite handles. The largest sauté pan has two handles. Instead of the usual riveting that many handles have today, the handles on this set are incredibly smooth with a high paint polish finish. There are no crevices, which mean that food will not become wedged in the handle. Although smooth, the handles are very easy to grip and to stay cool to the touch when placed on the cooker top. They are also very easy to keep clean.
Non toxic easy clean
This cookware set is PTFE and PFOA free. This means that cooking your food is incredibly safe as it does not come into contact with any toxins. As the inner coating is made from ceramic, the food makes contact with this surface and not the aluminium base. The pots and pans are also incredibly easy to keep clean. They are very easily washed with soapy water, or alternatively placed into the dishwasher.
This cookware set has a ceramic inner that is nonstick. Therefore when cooking you need very little or no oil in which to cook as food will cook naturally in their own fat and juices. This means that cooking the nonstick way is much healthier for your general health. The induction bottom of these pans also means that you can cook at a much lower temperature and your food will cook a lot quicker as heat is distributed evenly around the entire pan.
Glass tempered lids
The 10 piece cookware set comprises of 6 different sized sauté and fry pans plus 4 pan lids. The lids also range in a variety of sizes. They are made from tempered glass so are incredibly safe and strong. Being glass, they enable you to observe your food while cooking. Each lid also has a steam vent to optimize your cooking experience. Once your food has reached its optimum temperature you can then close the vent for your food to cook at the desired temperature. All lids fit securely onto their corresponding pot or pan.
