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

Scanpan CSX Cookware Set Review

You may not have seen a Scanpan CSX cookware set review before. Scanpan cookware is becoming very popular and rightfully so. Scanpan CSX cookware is a 5-ply brushed stainless steel exterior, aluminum layers on the inside and stainless steel as the cooking surface. It has a clean contemporary look. Glass lids have stainless steel edges and are vented. A great feature of Scanpan cookware is their PFOA free nonstick surface. It is a high quality healthy nonstick surface made of titanium and ceramic. Scanpan CSX cookware is induction capable, even though some reports show it is not. Scanpan is made in Denmark.

Healthy Cookware Sets

Healthy cookware sets tend to be stainless steel, cast iron, enameled cast iron, stoneware or clay. Stainless steel is common and popular because they can be put into the dishwasher and the cooking surface does not leech into the food. I reviewed a lot of cookware to come up with the one cookware set that is better than all the rest. I am very comfortable with my selection, even after looking at cookware from All-Clad, Le Creuset, Staub, Emile Henry and Calphalon.

Scanpan CSX Cookware Set Review

The Scanpan CSX Cookware Set Wins for Best Quality Healthy Cookware Set

Scanpan cookware is fast become my favorite cookware. I like the look and feel of Scanpan. It is very solid cookware that is built to last. The stainless steel is solid and very attractive. Because it is built so well and includes 3 layers of aluminum in the core of the cookware, it heats very quickly and evenly. Home cooks of all caliber will love the cookware because it is easy to use. The set comes complete with just about every piece one might need:

  • Fry Pan – 10.25″
  • Fry Pan – 12.50″
  • Fry Pan – 10.25″ with Titanium Ceramic nonstick surface
  • Covered Sauté Pan – 11″
  • Covered Sauce Pan – 1 qt
  • Covered Sauce Pan – 3 qt
  • Covered Stock Pot – 8 qt
  • Pasta Insert – 8 qt

Cooking enthusiasts will like the pasta insert for making and draining pasta quickly. With 3 skillets, one being nonstick, a cook can whip up any kind of meal quickly.

REVIEW: What I Liked

  1. The PFOA-free nonstick skillet included in a stainless steel cookware set is a huge advantage allowing one to saute for the fond and cook delicate eggs or fish in the nonstick skillet
  2. Vented lids work exceptionally well and reduce mess when cleaning up
  3. The 12 1/2″ skillet is a great size and rarely included in cookware sets
  4. The glass on the lids is very handy to see what is cooking
  5. It is very well built and solid
  6. Very flat non-warping bottoms are great on any stove, especially flat top stoves
  7. Dishwasher safe
  8. The handles are very comfortable and stay cool

REVIEW: What I Didn’t Like

  1. It’s hard to find anything wrong with this cookware. If anything, I wish it had a steamer insert. The pasta insert can work but one has to watch the water level.

Scanpan Professional Cookware

Scanpan Professional Cookware adds stainless steel handles and lids to the Classic cookware line. Scanpan Professional is created using the company’s patented technique which involves superheating a ceramic-titanium compound so that it fuses with the pressure-cast aluminum base. This creates a long-lasting nonstick surface with excellent heat distribution properties. Since it is more than a nonstick coating, it is more durable, even tough enough for metal utensils. The handles and lids are created from stainless steel and are riveted to the main body for strength and durability. The nonstick surface is created from Scanpan’s Green Tek compound, which is environmentally friendly and is non-harmful to the human body. In addition, no environmentally harmful chemicals are used in its production. All of the products in the Scanpan Professional Cookware line are oven safe to 500˚F, metal utensil safe, dishwasher safe (although hand washing is recommended) and come with a lifetime warranty.

Scanpan Professional Cookware

  • Heavy-duty pressure cast Aluminum base for perfect heat distribution
  • Patented ceramic-titanium nonstick surface for use with metal utensils
  • Cast 18/10 stainless handles stay cool longer. Heavy-duty stainless steel rivets permanently secure handles to pan body
  • Perfect food release, easy to clean. Dishwasher safe.
  • Suitable for all stove tops, excluding induction

My take on Scanpan Professional Cookware

Scanpan Professional is nearly identical to the Scanpan Classic cookware, but with stainless steel handles and lids. I love Scanpan products, so if you are looking for a touch of stainless steel, then Scanpan Professional cookware is a good choice.

I am a big fan of Scanpan Classic cookware. I put mine through severe long term tests and it still does fantastic. Scanpan Classic cookware is a good way to introduce yourself to Scanpan, unless you want to jump right in with the brushed stainless steel varieties of Scanpan CSX or Scanpan CTX.
