T-fal Stainless Steal and Non-Stick Cookware Review



I know there has been quite the buzz going on all around the internet about this awesome giveaway from CookingPlanit and T-fal.  CookingPlanit and T-fal have teamed up with 50 bloggers to give you all a chance to win this awesome 12 piece set of cookware!

So let me tell you a little bit about it all.

I can't tell you how excited I was to find this box on my doorstep?


 I was so giddy when I was asked to participate in this giveaway. First because it was an honor to be chosen among 49 of my favorite bloggers, and second because I was going to get to try this fabulous 12 piece cookware set from T-fal! 

I had a ratty old set of pots and pans that I bought quite some time ago. You know how it goes....I will replace them.....someday, and someday just doesn't seem to come. But then the foodie fairy smiles on you and you find this fabulous set of stainless steel and non-stick cookware on your kitchen table! It could happen to you...TRUST ME!


Look at how gorgeous this set is. I felt like a little kid when I laid them all out. They were so shiny and brand new!! 


But it isn't all about looks with this cookware gang. They have tons of great features!


The non stick surface is like none I have ever owned before. Plus, one of the coolest things, in my opinion, is the Thermo-Spot™ heat indicator shows when your pan is perfectly preheated. No more guessing if it is at the right temperature. You know with just a glance. 


One of my favorite features of the stainless steel pots is that the handles are riveted, not held with screws. How many times have you had handles get wobbly and loose because of the screws? Not anymore, they are soundly secured to the pot. They also have Interior measuring marks which is such a nice convenience.

All of the cookware can go from stove top to oven, as you will see with the following recipe as well as these Pork Chops with Red Pepper Sauce. The non-stick up to 450 degrees, stainless up to 500, and all of the cookware is dishwasher safe.

All in all I am absolutely tickles pink with this cookware, and I know you will be too!! Just take a look at this Tomato Bacon Frittata I made using it. I have always been afraid to try a firttata for the simple reason that I knew it would stick to the pan. Not with these T-fal pans. I simply ran my rubber spatula around the rim and slid it right out!!

My giveaway starts on Sept 8th, so make sure to come back to enter then. But you still have plenty more opportunities to win before it is all over. Just check out these other fine foodies!!

  1. Ohhhh wow! Such gorgeous cookware! I love that center. I get annoyed when my husband throws tap water into the pan to test it's heat. If it's hot enough, the sprinkles leave crystals from the gross tap water! Plus, riveted handles?! MAJOR PLUS!

  22. I've been cooking peppers and onions in the skillet on the grill a lot lately. I'll have to add jalapenos next time. Yum. I like cooking bacon that way too, although hot fat + open flame adds a nice element of danger. I used to get flank steak, but my husband got me to try the carne asada cut from our local market, and I prefer it. Not sure if it's thin-cut flank or skirt (I'll have to ask), but it looks like this
