Stainless Steel Design
The exterior of the Cuisinart cookware set is made out of stainless steel. It features a brushed finish that is absolutely stunning. The interiors of the Cuisinart stainless steel cookware are mirror polished. This provides a non-reactive interior that will quickly release foods. This means that the pans are extremely easy to clean.
Heat Surround Technology
The set of pans from Cuisinart features their tri-ply surround heat technology. The aluminum core in the base of the pan and in the side walls provides you with completely even heating of whatever you are cooking. However, the handle of the pan will stay cool when it is on the stovetop. No more burning your hands when you go to remove the pan from the flame.
The lids of the pans are tight-fitting and provide you with pouring rims that are completely dripping free. This makes it easy to drain your food. Every pan can be used in up to a 500-degree oven and they are safe for use in the broiler as well.

Customer Reviews and Scores
One of the many reasons that this set of pans has received great reviews is because they are made of stainless steel. Stainless steel is considered to be the industry standard when it comes to pots and pans. The main reason is that these pans last longer and are more sanitary than others found on the market.
While these are great pans to have on hand, there were some complaints about how much oil has to be used to cook foods like hash browns. People also complained about the clean up after cooking meats and other starchy foods.
The Cuisinart multi clad pro 12 pan set is a great investment. These pans are made of a high quality stainless steel that offers longevity. Chances are that you are not going to need to buy another set of pans for a very long time, if ever after you purchase these.
The set comes with everything the average home cook would need in order to prepare many different types of meals. The steamer insert is great for cooking vegetables and the overall heat technology ensures that food is cooked evenly every time. The lids allow you to pour off excess liquids and fats very easily. Overall, this is a great set of pans for the price.
