NutriChef Excilon 11-Piece Ceramic Nonstick Set

Design:

NutriChef Excilon set has multi-sized stockpots, frypans, and a Dutch oven. The utensils have a patterned shiny exterior and a dark polished interior that comes with a non-stick coating. They also come with transparent covering lids and ergonomic silicon handles. Each of the utensils has a slim body that makes them lightweight. In fact, their combined weight is 14.8 pounds.

Materials:

Each of the utensils' body features five unique layers that include a transparent non-stick layer, a ceramic diamond infused layer, an aluminum alloy layer, and an exterior layer with heat resistant lacquer and a glittering pattern. The utensils are viable for use on all cooktops including induction heaters and can support oven use up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Usability:

We love the fact that the exterior of the utensils comes patterned and infused with blue diamond ceramic because it protects the inner layers from corrosion and effectively transfers heat to the cooking surface. The cooking surface features a durable reinforced ceramic non-stick coating to ensure it cleans easily and resists scratching, thus enabling the utensils to be cleaned in a dishwasher. The coating is safe for cooking since it has no PFOA or PTFE toxins.

Tempered glass covering lids that are sold with the utensils allow monitoring of the food as cooking is in progress. The steam release hole on the lids releases pressure and excess steam to avoid cases of spillages in the kitchen.

Most people who use this set like how easy it is to clean the utensils and are impressed by their efficient heat distribution. They advise against using metal utensils when cooking since the non-stick surface becomes delicate when heated and easily chips off from the impact of metal utensils.

Cleaning:

According to the manufacturer, the utensils are safe for dishwasher cleaning. However, we recommend doing so seldom. Instead, wash them by hand using warm water, soap, and a non-abrasive sponge to keep the non-stick cooking surface intact for longer.


The set contains:

  • 1.7-quart saucepan pot w/ lid
  • 3. 6-quart dutch oven pot w/ lid
  • 2.1-quart cooking pot w/ lid
  • 11-inch large fry pan
  • 8-inch small fry pan
  • Soup ladle
  • Pasta fork
  • Spatula

Pros

  • Easy to clean
  • Heat up quickly and evenly
  • Include covering lids
  • The set includes multiple utensils
  • Utensils support use over induction heaters

Cons

  • Metal utensils cannot be used on the cooking surface
  • Difficult to clean the glass lids when they get grease

NutriChef 12-Piece Nonstick Ceramic Cookware Set

Design:

The NutriChef 12-piece set includes saucepans, a stockpot, frypans and a Dutch oven pot all of which have a shiny dark brown non-stick interior cooking surface and a stylish ridgeline pattern on the exterior. Also included in the set are covering lids with spacious handles that have a black grip space at the center and cooking utensils that include a spatula, ladle, and pasta fork. The complete set weighs 17.66 pounds.

Materials:

The cooking utensils have a 5-layered body that includes a blue-diamond infused non-stick layer for quick food release, an aluminum layer for rapid and uniform heating, and a reinforced glitter outer layer that features an exceptional ridge pattern.

The handles on the utensils and the clear covering lids have soft silicon grip centers that ensure they remain cool even after long cooking sessions. The utensils are viable for use over gas, ceramic, electric, and induction heaters.

Usability:

This set of NutriChef cookware impressed our team with its beautiful ridge pattern and the 5-layered body that defines each utensil. The utensils' body is long lasting and capable of distributing heat efficiently to all parts at the same time, thus eliminating hotspots that result in uneven cooking.

Owners of this set reveal that the utensils perform well, especially on induction heaters where they heat up within a very short time. The multi-layered body is also warp resistant and cleans with minimal effort.

Users also like the stay cool handles that come with a soft silicone grip because they are comfortable to hold. The inclusion of non-abrasive cooking utensils that are kind to the non-stick cooking surfaces of the pieces in the set also helps the users to preserve each of the pieces in the set and use them for extended periods.

To keep the utensils in perfect condition, replace the cooking utensils with similar non-abrasive utensils and avoid using metal cooking spoons and spatulas because they scratch the cooking surface easily.

Cleaning:

The set is safe for dishwasher cleaning but people who own it maintain that handwashing should be used as the primary method to clean the cooking surface because it does not allow food items to stick on it. We also advise that the utensils be allowed to cool down enough before cleaning them to prevent warping, which can result from rapid temperature change.


The set contains:

  • 1.5-quart Saucepan Pot with Lid
  • 3.4-quart Dutch Oven Pot with Lid
  • 2-quart Cooking Pot with Lid
  • 11-inch Large Fry Pan
  • Spatula
  • 9.5-inch Medium Fry Pan
  • 8-inch Small Fry Pan
  • Soup Ladle
  • Pasta Fork

Pros

  • The set includes multiple cooking utensils that cover all basic kitchen requirements
  • Easy to clean
  • The body heats up quickly and uniformly
  • Sold with accompanying covering lids
  • Handles are comfortable to hold and remain cool to the touch

Cons

  • The large pan does not have a covering lid
  • Metal utensils cannot be used on the cooking surface

NutriChef Nonstick 20-Piece Cookware & Bakeware Set

Design:

The 20-piece non-stick set from NutriChef is sold as a wide collection of cooking and baking utensils that include differently sized pans, stew pots, a sauce pot, stew pot, and a 6-piece bakeware set. All the utensils in the set have a light brown color on both the exterior and the interior non-stick surface and include transparent covering lids for the stew pots and sauce pot. The combined weight of the set pieces is 17.7 pounds when packed.

Materials:

The body of the cooking utensils is made of 5-layers that include an aluminum layer, which is responsible for rapid and even heating, a blue diamond reinforced non-stick layer, which enables efficient food release, and the exterior layer that has blue diamond reinforcement as well to protect the inner layers and enable sufficient heat resistance.

The multi-layer construction enables usage of the utensils at high temperatures in the oven of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and makes the utensils compatible with gas, electric, ceramic, and induction cooking tops.

Usability:

We found the inclusion of so many utensils impressive because it enables the cook to achieve more in the kitchen. The included bakeware set tolerates high oven temperatures and is easy to clean thanks to the superior diamond reinforced non-stick surface.

Cooks who have previously used the utensils in this set report needing less oil to prepare food as compared to the amount of oil they need when cooking with other utensil sets. The non-stick surface also releases food items cooking on it easily to make the cleanup process quick.

The handles on the pans and pots have soft grip silicon covers that are comfortable to hold and remain cool even after cooking for hours. Users also like the covering lids that include a steam release hole because their transparent nature allows easy monitoring of the cooking process. When using the bakeware set, it is advisable to avoid exceeding the labelled temperature limit to keep the cooking surface intact.

Cleaning:

The set is labelled safe for dishwasher cleaning but that should only be done occasionally. Since the non-stick surface releases food items easily, hand washing will take care of any leftover food left on the utensil after cooking and will guarantee durability of the utensils.

  • (6) Bakeware Sets
