Duxtop SSIB-17 Cookware Set Review:
The core material of this cookware is 18/10 marine grade stainless steel. This commercial grade material promises great strength and lasting durability.
In addition, it's also stain-resistant, no matter how many times you use them. Add this to its heavy gauge impact-bonded aluminum encased bottom, and this set is made to last for a lifetime of cooking in your home.
Versatility is always a great option to have when it comes to pots and pans and this set really goes above and beyond the call. This set is oven-safe up to 550 degrees F, which is just phenomenal; there is nothing you're going to cook at that high of a temperature.
Smart & Safe Design
The lids are made of tempered glass which makes it easier to keep an eye on what you're cooking, also making it safer and lessening the chance of burning yourself. The stainless steel handles are riveted on for strength and durability with an anti-slip finish. These pots and pans are designed for ease of use and safety.
A design you've probably never seen before, the Duxtop Cookware set has measured marks inside its pots and pans for easier cooking. With this set, you won't have to dirty up measuring cups in addition to your pots and pans, because you can do it all in one. This design is very convenient.
In addition, both the 8 inch and 10 inch frying pans have higher sides than usual, not only proving to be less messy but also to be high enough to cook more food if needed. All of these design attributes combine to make one smart, safe, strong design that will endure for a lifetime.
This set of Duxtop Cookware is made using impact-bonded technology. What that means in layman's terms is that no adhesive element was used in bonding the aluminum layers and bottom disc to the vessel itself.
Instead, the bond was created by a friction process which uses between 800 and 1500 tons of pressure, making it more secure, stronger, and much more durable. This tech enables the pots and pans to cook evenly so that there are no hot spots. If you've cooked very much at all, you know that this can be a big problem, especially with cheaper brands.
The aluminum layers store and displace heat, evenly distributing it, and taking less time to heat up. When you cook with this set, you won't have to keep turning the pot or pan for even cooking!
In addition to being induction-ready, this set can be used on a variety of cooking sources. The way this set is made with the impact-bonded technology, it also makes it able to be used on induction stoves; the bottom layer has gone through a magnetized phase.
In addition, this Duxtop Cookware set is suitable for all other cooking sources as well, such as electric cook tops, gas, infrared, and glass or ceramic cook-tops. No matter what kind of cooking source you have, you'll be able to take advantage of this set.
