Farberware Classic Stainless SteelAlthough this set of Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Cookware does have an adequate range of saucepans, stockpots, saute pans, and mixing bowls, modernization of the Classic series did result in a drop in overall quality. Some pieces in the set may last a lifetime, but others will need replacement in a few years.

With proper care of this set you'll have better luck, since there are some good features here. The cookware has the modern sandwich bottom design which layers a disc of aluminum between two sheets of stainless steel. The aluminum conducts heat evenly over the enter bottom surface. This type of construction requires less power and works best on low to medium burner settings.

Farberware's non-stick coating has some special needs, and the company suggests one and only one type of detergent to clean it. The lifetime of the interior finish of the saute pans will be reduced if that advice is not taken. Dishwashers are also tough on this cookware, and hand washing according to Farberware's instructions will reduce problems.

Handles of these pots and pans are plastic, heat tolerant to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, so technically the set is oven safe. Practically speaking, that's too close to an oven's working temperature for safety, since a reading of 350 on the oven often means a temperature roaming between 325 and 375 degrees.

Cut back a little bit on expectations, and the Farberware will survive the kitchen longer.

Compare this with Cuisinart's stainless steel cookware set.

    I am trying to find the right type of cookware for a glass top stove. I would like it to be non stick and red in color. I believe it should be stainless steel with aluminum interior and the surface should be smooth. Where in the world can I find this type of cookware?
