My Best Budget Cookware Reviews includes 2 very reputable brands. Covering stainless steel and aluminum nonstick, every household on a tight budget will enjoy these cookware items. I have and use these items regularly and they continue to impress me in their quality. While they don’t have features higher priced products offer, they are excellent for everyday cooking.

Criteria for Budget Cookware

I have 3 criteria for my best budget cookware reviews. It’s a tall order, but I am pleased to have 2 products I can solidly recommend.

  1. They must be durable and able to last a long time. Just because it’s low priced cookware, I don’t want it to be cheap quality. I want it to last, and that’s why I tested these products regularly.
  2. They must be priced under $10 per piece. I already have a low priced category which covers under $20 per piece, so the budget category must be significantly lower priced than that. $10 or less per piece.
  3. They must have a history or performance as gauged by many other users. I want to see plenty of reviews where cooks were pleased with the performance, and very low amounts of unhappy users. That’s a tall order for a budget category!

KitchenAid Aluminum Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set

KitchenAid is famous for making consumer oriented cookware. While they are famous for their mixers and food processors, their cookware is equally good but for a different market. With an enamel exterior, aluminum core, and nonstick interior, it is attractive and durable. My experience with using this KitchenAid cookware is that as long as you wash it by hand, and don’t use it on very high heat, it will last a very long time. The nonstick surface has endured much and still performs like a champ. For more details, please see the full cookware review.

Farberware Classic 17-Piece Cookware Set

Farberware classic stainless steel cookware was likely in your parents home. This product line has endured throughout many years with a few changes. Today Farberware Classic Stainless Steel cookware has a cap on the bottom encasing the aluminum versus having the aluminum raw on the bottom. They have added features like drip pour spouts and straining lids. While we all have fond memories of a time long ago, the new Farberware Classic cookware is still very good. To tell you how good the product line is, I am still using a 4qt sauce pot that my parents used over 40 years ago! My newer 1 qt pot I use regularly for oatmeal or soups. I do like the straining lids. While the stainless steel pieces are healthy and dishwasher safe, the nonstick skillets are not. Please hand wash those items.

The 17 piece cookware set below is very complete for anyone getting started or just looking for a complete outfit. This set even includes mixing bowls. It’s hard to go wrong with Farberware Classic. For more details please see my complete review.

Consumer Advocate Mark Jala Issues Warning About New PFOA Free Nonstick Cookware

PFOA free nonstick cookware should be healthy cookware, right? It might not be. Consumer advocate Mark Jala issues a warning to all buyers of healthy and safe cookware that just because a cookware advertises as PFOA free that it may not be healthy or safe cookware. The problem lies in that huge companies making millions of dollars on PFOA over the years are not going to stand by and just watch that money go away. DuPont, 3M, and other makers of PFOA have replaced PFOA with another chemical compound. Time will tell just how good, or how bad, it really is.

Is PFOA Free Nonstick Cookware Healthy?

PFOA in Our Bodies Today

PFOA has been manufactured in industrial quantities since the 1940’s. It is not a new product. It helps create a slick surface. Today, PFOA is applied to pre-treated carpets, carpet care liquids, apparel, upholstery, textiles, medical garments, floor wax and wax removers, tile sealants, food contact paper, dental floss and of course, cookware. Studies show 98% of all people have PFOA in their bloodstream right now.

Imagine you come home from work, tired and exhausted. You take your coat off and walk on your ScotchGuard protected carpet and plop down on your stain resistant sofa. It feels so good to relax. You take in a good deep, relaxing breath. Little did you know that the dust you stirred up walking on the carpet and sitting down on the sofa lifted up tiny particles of PFOA that is now being inhaled in that relaxing deep breath. Congratulations, you are now one of the 98% that has PFOA in your system.

A good history about PFOA and how deceptive the manufacturers have been over time can be found here at Environmental Working Group.

PFOA Free Nonstick Cookware Consumer Warning

Consumer advocate, and founder of www.YourCookwareHelper.com, issues a warning to all buyers of PFOA free nonstick cookware. “If you think the new PFOA free nonstick cookware you are buying is healthy cookware, you may want to look again. DuPont, 3M and other manufacturers of PFOA products have replaced PFOA with another chemical compound. That new chemical compound may be what is in that new cookware you are considering. The bottom line is no one knows the health implications of that new chemical compound. PFOA started being made in the 1940’s and it wasn’t until the late 1990’s to early 2000’s before any action was even considered about PFOA. PFOA will have been in production 75 years before being voluntarily removed from products. How long will it take for the PFOA replacements to be fully vetted for health concerns?” says Mark Jala. “We just don’t know yet about these new products.”

Healthy Cookware Recommendations

Mark Jala recommends, until these new PFOA replacements can be fully vetted, to stick with the known healthy and safe cookware products. These products include:

  • Stainless steel
  • Ceramic
  • Cast iron and enameled cast iron
  • Clay
  • New variations in “green” cookware

Until the PFOA free nonstick cookware is fully vetted for safety, this website will show on the dashboard the following graphic(this change will be fully implemented in 2014):

Scanpan CTX Cookware Set Review

If you haven’t seen a Scanpan CTX cookware set review before, prepare to be amazed. Scanpan cookware is becoming very popular and rightfully so. Scanpan CTX cookware is a 5-ply brushed stainless steel exterior, aluminum layers on the inside and the Scanpan titanium/ceramic GreenTek PFOA-free cooking surface. It has a clean contemporary look. Glass lids have stainless steel edges and are vented. Scanpan CTX cookware is identical to the Scanpan CSX cookware line except that all CTX products have the nonstick interior instead of mostly stainless steel. Scanpan CTX cookware is induction capable. Scanpan is made in Denmark.

Scanpan CTX Cookware Set Review

New cookware has a way of bringing out hidden cooking talents in people!

Perhaps you have some old scratched nonstick cookware and concerned over health reasons. Maybe they are slightly warped and don’t lay flat. Perhaps you have mismatched cookware or some that is chipped or peeling. Maybe yours sticks too much, doesn’t perform the way you would like it to, and perhaps you want a cookware set that is healthy.

If you are like me, I have some cookware that has been passed down from my parents and other family members. I have a little bit of everything. I know I get tired of some pieces that are warped and don’t lay flat. 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 it could last for many years to come!

Nonstick Cookware Sets

Virtually every cookware manufacturer makes nonstick cookware. Unfortunately most are not very durable and cannot be used on higher heats. Experienced cooks know that certain cooking methods, like saute, require a higher heat level. Traditional nonstick surfaces even gave off harmful fumes that kills birds and gives humans a condition known as polymer fume fever. Fortunately PFOA-free nonstick surfaces are becoming more popular and the dangers of harmful fumes should disappear. In searching for the best nonstick cookware set in terms of quality I looked at and cooked with a lot of cookware. I wanted a cookware that was durable, attractive, lays perfectly flat, could take high heat, had advanced features and also could be put into the dishwasher. Even though that was a tall order, I was successful in finding a brand that makes just what I was looking for.  

Scanpan CTX Cookware Set Review

The Scanpan CTX Cookware Set Wins for Best Quality

I really like Scanpan cookware. Having used their nonstick surface for several years now, I know it is durable and the nonstick surface lasts. I am please that the Scanpan CTX cookware set with a brushed stainless steel exterior is just as solid and durable as I expect from Scanpan. Cooks of all caliber will love Scanpan CTX cookware because it is easy to cook with and very easy to clean. The nonstick surface can take high heat, but you’ll be surprised you won’t need to jack up the heat very high because the layers of aluminum in the core of the cookware heats quickly and distributes that heat very well. This is an outright winner for many reasons.

REVIEW: What I Liked

  1. The PFOA-free nonstick surface is top quality and long lasting
  2. Vented lids is just one of the advanced features I liked
  3. The contemporary styling is really slick. Rounded corners make it easy to handle and look at.
  4. The glass in the lid makes it easy to see what’s cooking
  5. It is very solid, and even though it is not very heavy, you know you are holding on to solid cookware
  6. Dishwasher safe
  7. The handles are an excellent size and shape. They stay cool.

REVIEW: What I Didn’t Like

  1. No 12″ skillet in this cookware set. If you have to cook a lot of food a 12″ fry pan is necessary.
  2. Sauce pans are a similar size. There should have been a bigger variety in sizes

Product Description

Cuisinart GreenGourmet Hard-Anodized Nonstick Cookware Series Inspired by the great French kitchens, Cuisinart began making professional cookware over 35 years ago. Constructed of the finest materials available to perfectly perform all of the classic cooking techniques, Cuisinart GreenGourmet Hard-Anodized cookware continues a long tradition of excellence. Today, more and more home cooks are going green… and so is Cuisinart cookware! Nonstick coating for any kitchen task Cuisinart's GreenGourmet cookware is designed with an exclusive Cuisinart Ceramica nonstick surface, which features a petroleum-free, ceramic-based coating that is applied at a temperature one half that of traditional nonsticks. The coating does not contain PTFE and PFOA, substances often used in nonstick cookware that have raised health concerns over the years. It was also developed using manufacturing techniques that reduce harmful carbon emissions by consuming less energy. The coating is also water-based, unlike other nonstick coatings on the market, which are solvent-based. In addition, Cuisinart's cookware has a scratch-resistant nonstick surface that won't peel off. The new cookware conforms to FDA and European RoHS standards for environmentally sound products. These pans should be hand-washed with a mild detergent. Cuisinart also gets some green cred from the packaging, which is made from 100 percent recycled materials and is printed using 100 percent biodegradable soy ink. The pans deliver superior heat conductivity, requiring less energy to achieve the desired cooking temperature. Harder than stainless steel, the skillet's hard anodized exterior is dense, nonporous, and highly wear-resistant for extra durability and professional performance as well as quick and even heat distribution. Additionally, the securely riveted stay-cool steel handles are manufactured using 70 percent recycled stainless steel and is oven-safe to 500 degrees F, so food can be browned on the stovetop then transferred to the oven to finish cooking. What's in the Box 1-quart saucepan with cover, 2-1/2-quart saucepan with cover, 3-quart sauté pan with cover, 6-quart stockpot with pasta insert and cover, and a 8-inch open skillet Product Features Riveted stainless stick handles stay cool on the stovetop Petroleum-Free ceramic-based nonstick interior helps to conserve oil consumption Exclusive Cuisinart Ceramica Nonstick Technology Oven and broiler safe Packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is printed with soy ink Handles are made from 70% recycled stainless steel Features and Benefits Healthy Cooking, Easy Cleaning: When cooking with your Cuisinart GreenGourmet Cookware, you do not need to add oil or butter to prevent foods from sticking. If you wish to enhancethe flavor and appearance of foods, you need add only a minimum amount to the nonstick surface of your cookware. Energy-Efficient Cooking: Select a burner size that matches the diameter of the bottom of the pan. When cooking over a gas burner, make certain that the flame touches only the bottom of the pan. If the flame extends up the sides of the pan, energy is wasted. Easy Maintenance: Let your Cuisinart GreenGourmet Cookware cool before cleaning. Cookware should be washed by hand with hot sudsy water and a sponge or soft dishcloth. Do not use steel wool or other metal or abrasive pads that can scratch your cookware. After washing, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. Cleaning the Exterior: Cuisinart GreenGourmet Cookware has a smooth exterior finish, making it easier to clean and maintain. Food residue or buildup on the exterior of your cookware can easily be removed with hot soapy water and a scrub pad. The exterior of Cuisinart Cookware, like other brands, will show wear with continuous use. This condition will not in any way affect the superior cooking performance of your cookware.

Proper Cooking Utensils We recommend using plastic or wooden utensils in your Cuisinart GreenGourmet Cookware to maintain its appearance and performance. Refrain from cutting foods or using sharp utensils such as forks, knives, mashers or whisks that can scratch the cooking surface. Slight surface marks and abrasions are normal and will not affect the performance of the Cuisinart Ceramica coating. Durable Cookware for a Lifetime of Great Meals With a little bit of care, you’ll enjoy a great performance from your Cuisinart GreenGourmet cookware for years to come. A careful hand washing after each use is usually all it takes. But if pans become crusty or heavily greased, a couple of hours soaking in hot sudsy water and a light scrub will have them looking like new. Seasoning your pans twice a year helps to maintain optimal performance, and it’s easy! Just add a half-tablespoon of vegetable oil and spread it around the entire interior, right up to the rim. Then place the pan in a preheated 300°F oven for an hour. Carefully remove the pan, allow it to cool completely, and wipe off any excess oil with a paper towel. Be gentle with your cookware! Avoid stacking, which may cause chipping of the ceramic interior. Show it off on a Cuisinart cookware rack, or store it carefully, with a little breathing room, in your kitchen cabinets.
