Did you enjoy your evening meal last night, or was it over or under cooked? You can enjoy a delicious meal every day, if you use Bialetti Italian Cookware.
Use the Best. Use Bialetti Italian Cookware
Most men seem to be in a hurry about almost everything, especially cooking. Take my older brother, for example. He cooks everything on high. While I know he tries his best, this drives my sister-in-law up the wall, since she is the individual who is saddled with the cleanup. I can’t begin to venture a guess of how many pots and pans my bother has ruined over his years of cooking.
Although meal preparation is mandatory for us all, cooking is an art form that most women learn, either early in life or following marriage. With the exception of the chef, men seem to learn the hard way – like my brother. There are a few tricks of the trade in cooking like using the proper pan size for the burner on your stove. And, believe it or not, the cookware set you use plays an important part in the taste of your food, as well. As women, we look for cookware that feels comfortable in our hand during use, is versatile enough to be used both on the stove top, as well as in the oven, cleans up easily and looks pretty. The Bialetti Ceramic Pro Cookware set meets all the criteria and with proper care will last for years to come.
Thank you to Bialetti who provided me with the 10-piece ceramic, nonstick eco-friendly cookware set for the purpose of this review.
The Ceramic Pro 10 Piece Set consists of: 8” & 10” Saute, 1.5qt & 3qt Covered Sauce Pan, 3qt Covered Deep Saute, and a 6qt Covered Dutch. This set has the perfect pan that you need when you need it.
The Ceramic Pro cookware set by Bialetti combines superior performance with healthier cooking. In using my set, I used very little oil with the easy-release ceramic nonstick interior. Plus, I was able to take my food dish easily from the stove to oven, since it is oven safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The exterior is hard anodized aluminum for even heating and long term toughness. It has a nonstick interior for easy clean up. Bialetti recommends that you hand wash your 10-Piece Cookware Set, which includes lids. Bialetti extends a 10-year guarantee to the entire Ceramic Pro line.
The grey ceramic nonstick coating inside is super soft and does not stick or burn foods at all. In using the 8” saute to prepare eggs for my husband’s breakfast, I noted that the eggs did not stick to the pan and was easily poured onto the plate. Although the company recommends that you use some oil when cooking in your Bialetti Ceramic Pro Cookware, I only used a very small amount to cook the eggs. In addition, the saute cleaned up quickly and easily.
To get the best use of your new Bialetti cookware set, the company has provided some suggestions for you:
Bialetti cookware is ideal for use with all conventional stove tops; including electric, gas, ceramic and glass. Select a burner that is suited to the size of the bottom of the pan. If using gas stovetop, choose burner size so that the flame comes in contact with the bottom only and does not come in contact with the side of the pan. With Bialetti ceramic coating –ALWAYS use a little oil or butter when cooking foods. The bases of these pans are designed to conduct heat quickly and evenly. Cook at a moderate heat. Follow recipes carefully during food preparation to ensure best cooking results. High heat is recommended for boiling only. Use Medium-High for frying, sautéing and searing. Low temperature setting is recommended for simmering and warming foods.
Never allow the foods to burn. If this should happen, slight differences in the color of the nonstick could occur. This slight discoloration does not compromise the function of the pan and in some cases can be easily removed by washing it in hot water with soap and rubbing the discoloration delicately with a soft sponge. For more resistant stains, you are advised to heat some white vinegar and then clean the product in a normal way. To lengthen the product’s life, store it with care and avoid banging or scratching the inner nonstick coating during storage.
Bialetti cookware is oven safe to 400ºF. Use caution handling pans during oven use. Handles will get hot. When lifting handles and lids, or when removing from the oven use oven gloves for your safety. DO NOT USE IN BROILER.
Never leave a pan unattended on a high heat or allow boiling dry as extended heating without liquid may cause permanent damage to your pan. Always wear oven mitts when handling the hot pan.
Use only plastic, wood or high temperature silicone tools. In order to guarantee the best performances, avoid sharp or pointed metal utensils that could scratch or ruin the nonstick inner surface. Do not use knives or small appliances such as electric mixers to chop or mix foods in your cookware. Such use can damage the interior surface and void the warranty.
For best cooking results, always keep your cookware clean. Allow pans to cool prior to washing. Submerging hot pans in cold water can cause cookware to warp. Do not use abrasive cleansers during cleaning. Doing so can cause damage to exterior and interior of cookware. For best results, hand wash with non-abrasive cleansers and liquid dishwashing soap. Bialetti cookware is hand wash only. Hand washing will help to protect the characteristics of the coating. This pan should not be washed in the dishwasher. Over time, the grey ceramic nonstick coating may discolor slightly. This is normal and does not affect the performance of the pan.
