I had tested out some of the Cristel Casteline Removable Handle Stainless Steel Cookware over the past few weeks and the quality of these pots and pans are great. The cookware set is very well made.
What I love about them the most are the removable handles. I live in an apartment and cabinet space is very limited. So, I have some of my kitchenware in a kitchen island in the living room due to the kitchen being a tad small. The Cristel Casteline pots and fry pans stack well due to the lack of handles, in turn saving space. Handles can be stored inside the top pot, not taking up any extra space. Cristel also made the handles super easy to attach and remove so you don’t have to fight with the handles at all.
The pots and pans themselves cook foods very well. Due to the 5 layers of stainless steel and aluminum, the pans have fast evening heating. Three layers of stainless steel enrobing 2 layers of aluminum as you can see with the picture I have provided.
I had made pasta in the pot and sauteed chicken and vegetables in the fry pans. I had no issue with food sticking. As a side note, I did use butter and olive oil to prevent food from sticking to the pan. The Stainless Steel pots and pans are also oven safe up to 500° F . The glass lids up to 400° F. It is not recommended at all to put the glass lids under a broiler or removing the handles in the oven or under a broiler for safety reasons.
The cleaning process is also a breeze. These pots and pans ARE dishwasher safe. Also, If you prefer to hand wash your pots and pans, you don’t have to scrub the pans too much to get these pans clean. If I am ever in need to replace my pots and pans I would definitely consider getting a set.
