Features of the Lodge Elements SC90SET 8-Piece Cookware Set Review:
The following are the most features of Lodge Elements SC90SET 8-Piece Cookware Set, Silver.
All of the pots and pans within the set, apart from the large skillet pan, have been made with marine grade stainless steel. This is the strongest stainless steel that you can buy and is incredibly durable. The pots ad pans have a high polish and are easily cleaned after use with warm soapy water. The stainless steel construction is also very safe to cook with as it is non toxic and will not react with any foods, especially those that are acidic in nature.
Heavy clad base
The bases to all of the pots and pans have been made with multi clad layers. This adds weight to the pan and provides stability while cooking on the stove. The multi clad layering also ensures the thorough cooking of food, with no resulting hot spots. This makes cooking and eating that much safer. The stainless steel sides of the pan also allows food to be heated gently, yet thoroughly. Due to the multi clad layer, you also need less oil to heat the pan and this ensures healthier cooking.
Glass lids and long handles
The cookware set comes with three glass tempered lids that are safe at high temperatures and are shatter proof. They are safe on temperature up to oven temperatures of 500 degrees F. As the lids are made of glass, they make viewing food while it cooks incredibly easy. Each lid fits its respective pan tightly, ensuring no loss of nutrients or steam during the cooking process. All of the pans also feature long looped handles, made from stainless steel, that are easy to hold away from the hot pan sides and are easy to grip and manipulate.
