Now that you know what is in the set, let us see how is does when we rate it. There are a few different criteria we use to rate cookware.

Criteria List: Cookware

  • Usability
  • Longevity
  • Affordability
  • Quality

These four criteria have served us well in the past, and we are going to rate this set for you.

Criteria #1: Usability

Usability is number 1 on our list because we feel that cooking with a pot or pan that is ineffective is a waste of your time and a tragedy for the people who have to eat the food.

From what we can tell, this set of Anodized Aluminum Cookware is user-friendly. However, food can stick to the surface while cooking occasionally. Once the heat is off and it comes time to clean, all indications point towards and easy clean.

Criteria #2: Longevity

We would like to note that no matter what cookware you choose, you should always make sure there is a warranty and that there is no need for one. That might sound counterproductive, but we have found that you never know what can happen.

According to our research, this set of pots and pans has a multi-year shelf life with a hard-anodized surface. It also comes with a lifetime warranty if you buy it from Amazon. Can’t get any batter than that.

Criteria #3: Affordability

It would be nice if we all lived in a world where everything is free, but unfortunately, we do not. This set is priced well, however, could be a little cheaper. Our research shows that there are fluctuating prices for this set and you should keep watching for it to go down.

Criteria #4: Quality

Quality is one of the hardest criteria for us because it can be very subjective. But we feel that the quality of the pots and pans are very good. The inclusion of the lifetime warranty makes the quality skyrocket.

Make sure that you here if you are interested in buying it. You won’t be disappointed.
