CSN Stores - Paula Deen 12 pc. Cookware Set (in Blue) Review

My Dear Friends,

CSN Stores graciously let me pick an item to review.  They gave me a $50 gift card to use on whatever I wanted, and since I really needed some new cookware, I used it on that.  I ordered the Paula Deen Porcelain Nonstick 12 Piece Cookware Set in Blue.  Since the set was more expensive than the gift card, I paid for the remainder of the price myself.  Here are the specs:

12 Piece Set Includes:
  • One 1 Qt. saucepan with lid
  • One 2 Qt saucepan with lid
  • One 2.75 Qt. saute with lid
  • One 6 Qt. stock pot with lid
  • One 8" skillet
  • One 10" skillet
  • One slotted turner
  • One slotted spoon

  • 12 Piece set
  • Porcelain Nonstick Cookware collection
  • Blue color
  • Aluminum construction
  • Colorful speckled porcelain exterior will enhance every kitchen from contemporary to traditional
  • Attractive exterior is durable stain resistant and a breeze to clean
  • Interior of each pan is a high quality nonstick allowing food to slide off easily and ensuring a lifetime of easy cleanup
  • Dual riveted rubberized handles are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip
  • Stylish copper plated rings are attached for hanging convenience
  • Copper plated knobs add a punch of color and sophistication to spice up your kitchen
  • Tempered glass lids lock in flavors and let you watch your food cook without lifting the lid
  • NOT for use on glass cook-tops
  • Oven safe up to 350°F
  • Heats up quickly and evenly

I got these a while ago and really wanted to break them in before reviewing.  I honestly cannot find a single flaw in these.  To those with dishwashers, there might be a flaw since you can't put them in the dishwasher, but since I don't have one...

The surfaces really are non-stick and washing is so easy.  Nothing sticks to these!  Those who know me know I loves me some Paula Deen.  The pots and pans heat quickly, even on medium heat.  The details actually recommend that you use medium to medium high heat, as those temperatures are better for the cookware.

I really do recommend this set.  They are infinitely better than my old set.  I don't ever have to use a cooking spray!  Make sure, though, to use plastic or wood utensils on your set as to not damage the non-stick coating!

I do want to thank the amazing people at CSN Stores for helping make this review happen.  I am very impressed with your site!

*A $50 gift certificate was given to me by CSN Stores, but in no way had any effect on my review.  My opinions are my own and not influenced by any outside source.  Thank you to CSN Stores for this opportunity.
