The Cook N Home Nonstick Die Cast is a very basic, ceramic-coated, non-stick cookware starter set. It stacks conveniently, which is good if the kitchen storage space is limited. Unfortunately, it is not oven safe.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good for those looking for an attractive set
The pieces in this set are painted in three bright colors, which is unusual for cookware. They serve well as a decoration, so there is no need to hide them in the cupboard.
Pro Heats quickly and evenly
This set is made of aluminum, so the heat spreads quickly and evenly all throughout the pan.
Pro Non-stick coating contains no potentially toxic chemicals
This set contains no PTFE or potentially toxic PFOA or PFOS in the cooking surface coating. The non-stick coating is made of ceramic, which is also cadmium and lead-free.
Pro Compact set, takes up little space
This set covers just the basic cooking needs: there is a 1.7-quart saucepan, a 4.2-quart casserole, and a 3-quart sauté/fry pan, all with accompanying lids. It is suitable for people who don't cook much or have limited storage space. The pieces are stackable, which is convenient in a small kitchen.
Con Not oven compatible
The pieces in this set have plastic handles that can melt if a pan is put in the oven.
Con Dishwasher safe, but hand-wash recommended
This cookware is dishwasher safe, but frequent use can lead to chipping in the ceramic coating and diminishing of non-stick properties.
Con Not induction-compatible
This cookware can be used on any stovetop, except for induction, since it does not have a magnetic bottom.
