The Cuisinart FCT-10 is a flashy-looking set with classic appeal. The stainless-steel cookware set includes a 2-quart saucepan and cover, a 3-quart sauté pan and cover, a 4.5-quart Dutch oven with cover, an 8-quart stockpot with cover, and 8-inch and 10-inch open skillets. The Cuisinart FCT-10 stainless-steel construction comes with Heat Surround technology, which helps distribute the heat evenly throughout the pot or skillet, while still leaving the handles cool to the touch.
Get everything a good cook needs with the Cuisinart 44-13 contour stainless-steel cookware set. Unlike some cookware, the set comes with glass lids, so that the cook can see the food without having to remove the lid. Each piece has an aluminum disc at the base that helps distribute heat. The set includes 1.5-quart and 2.5-quart saucepans with glass covers, a 3-quart sauté pan with cover, a 4-quart Dutch oven with cover and pasta insert, as well as 8-inch and 10-inch skillets. Not only are these functional cookware pieces, but they are also attractive with their high-gloss exteriors.
Sometimes people already have several pieces of cookware and only need to replace basic items. In this case, the Cuisinart 77-7 is a great seven-piece set that includes 1.5-quart and 3-quart saucepans, an 8-quart stockpot, and a 10-inch skillet. Each of the items comes with a solid stainless-steel cover. The 77-7 set pieces have dripless rims on the lids to prevent messes, and even though they heat up rapidly, the handles always stay cool.
The Cuisinart MCP-12N is a great selection for the cook that wants everything. The pieces and their lids are solid stainless steel, and their mirror-finish exteriors make them stand out from traditional cookware. The package includes 1.5-quart and 3-quart saucepans, 8-inch and 10-inch skillets, a 3.5-quart sauté pan, and an 8-quart stockpot with a steamer insert. Only the saucepans come without lids, and the items are safe to put in the oven up to 500 degrees.
Those looking for a slightly more unique set may like the Cuisinart 55-11R. The set is available in a red or black version and includes a 10-inch skillet, 1-quart saucepan with a cover, a 2-quart saucepan with a cover, a 3-quart saucepan with a cover, a 3-quart sauté pan with a cover, and a 6-quart stockpot with a cover. All of the covers are glass, and the interior of each Cuisinart 55-11R piece is non-stick.
For a basic cookware set, check out the Cuisinart 66-7 with hard-anodized exteriors (a hard-anodized exterior is even more durable than stainless steel). There are seven pieces in the set: an 8-quart stockpot and lid, 1.5-quart and 3-quart saucepans with lids, and a 10-inch skillet. All of the pieces are safe to put in the dishwasher and oven if the temperature is less than 500 degrees.
Cuisinart designed its GW-10 cookware set with the environment in mind. The ceramic-based construction is petroleum-free, the manufacturing process requires less oil consumption, and the company uses 70 percent recycled stainless steel to make the handles.

This unique set comes with an 8-inch omelette pan, a 10-inch fry pan with lid, 1.5-quart and 2.5-quart saucepans with lids, and a 6-quart Dutch oven with a steamer insert.
