Rachael Ray 10-Piece Hard AnodizedI'm ambivalent about the whole celebrity chef craze. While I love watching Mario and Giada and Bobby Flay, I must also admit that they appear to be more celebrities than cooks in my mind. The proliferation of celebrity-chef-endorsed cookware lines only furthers this belief.

And Rachael Ray is the most annoying one of them all. I'm a card-carrying member of the I-hate-Rachael-Ray club. Her bubbly personality and silly catchphrases ("stoup, anyone?") grates on my every nerve. So I was predisposed to dislike this cookware. My mother bought them for me "because she knows I love those cooking shows." Uggh. It took all my will power to keep my eyes firmly in their sockets and not rolling around in my skull.

But--wait for it--this is actually a pretty fantastic cookware set. I like the variety of pots. You only get two skillets, which is perfect for me-- three is usually one skillet too many for my needs. You get two saucepans, two saute pans, and a fantastic stockpot that's six quarts-- a great size for everyday use.

The "fun" orange accent colors made me wary initially. Give me quality over color in my cookware, please. I don't need a "perky" skillet. But the bright orange silicone accents on the handles actually serve a useful purpose. They are made of a great soft-grip material that never gets hot, which is a huge bonus.

One thing to note: It is not dishwasher safe. Although I really never put any of my hard-anodized cookware in the dishwasher. It's so easy to just wash by hand anyway.
