Anolon Advanced Cookware Set Review

This Anolon Advanced Cookware Set Review is both a review and award presentation. The Anolon Advanced cookware set is my winner for “Best Quality” hard anodized aluminum cookware sets. Well constructed, nonstick both inside and outside, exceptional stay-cool handles, straining lids, easy pour spouts, and a very flat bottom are ample reasons for the award. Anolon, a Meyer Corporation company, makes several high quality aluminum cookware lines. Anolon Advanced has a long history of great reviews.

Anolon Advanced Cookware Set Review

People enjoy cooking when they have new cookware!

Perhaps you have several brands and styles of cookware, or some that is scratched and peeling. Maybe they are slightly warped and don’t lay flat. Maybe your cookware sticks too much, and perhaps you want a cookware set that is easy to clean. You may have noticed scratches on the cooking surface, the handles get too hot, or it’s just too heavy. Perhaps you would like cookware that heats evenly and lays flat on the stove surface.

If you are like me, I have some cookware that has been passed down from my parents and family members. I know some of it is at least 30 years old, and it shows! I know I get tired of the pieces that are warped and don’t lay flat on my GE ceramic top stove. It would be nice to have cookware with comfortable handles that stay cool, heats evenly and all the way up the sides of the cookware, and maybe even uses less heat. And it would be great if that cookware could last for many years to come and still look great!

You can put all your mismatched, old scratched and warped cookware aside because I have an excellent cookware set for your consideration. In reviewing all the hard anodized aluminum cookware sets, I found one that stands out for PREMIUM QUALITY.

Anolon Advanced Cookware Set Review

The Anolon Advanced Cookware Set Wins for Best Quality

There are many things to love with this cookware set. This Anolon Advanced Cookware set review includes both what I liked and didn’t like. 

REVIEW: What I liked

  1. It is very well constructed. The first impression is that it is built to last for generations.
  2. It has a very flat bottom perfect for any stove top, but especially the flat top stoves.
  3. The handles stay cool. 
  4. The handles are also a tad large which really helps when carrying a pan of hot food.
  5. Even though it is not dishwasher safe, it does clean up very easily by hand.
  6. I like the glass lids so one can see the food cooking without having to let out the heat.
  7. The saute pan that comes with the set is a great addition to the normal 8″ and 10″ skillets.
  8. I like the included sauce pots in a cookware set. Any cook will have plenty of pots and pans to cook with.
  9. The 8 qt stockpot is also a good addition for cooking pasta, corn on the cob or a very large stew!
  10. The aluminum construction underneath the nonstick surface heats all the way up the side walls and surrounds food with an even heat.

REVIEW: What I didn’t like

  1. As with all nonstick cookware sets, you’re not going to get the fond for sauce making after a saute from nonstick cookware. That’s why a stainless steel skillet is always recommended in addition to any nonstick cookware set. Consider the Cuisinart MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Inch Skillet with Helper Handle  
  2. It’s not dishwasher safe. Even though it’s easy to clean, it would be easier if it could go into the dishwasher.
  3. Like most traditional nonstick cookware sets, don’t use any heat settings above medium high. While it does get hot fast, and heat evenly, sometimes chefs like that extra high heat setting to really sear that food quickly. It’s more difficult getting that brown sear on scallops without that extra heat.

Forget trying to remember how each piece heats, cools, or handles certain cooking tasks. A PREMIUM QUALITY cookware set like the Anolon Advanced 11 piece cookware set takes the guess-work out of cooking. You will own a well constructed and attractive set of cookware.
