General Specifications
About the Product
The unique T-Fal thermo-spot heat indicator (fry pans only) shows when T-Fal pans are perfectly preheated to seal in the flavor of your food. The even heat base allows for even heat distribution for reliable cooking results. The T-Fal excite cookware has a non-stick interior that is scratch resistant making cooking and cleaning easy. Ergonomically designed handles are color-matched and oven-safe up to 350 degrees, allowing for an easy transition from stove-top to oven.
This cookware set is an exceptional value, including all of the pans needed to equip your kitchen with the most used cooking pieces. As the set contains only basic pieces, you'll really use each and every pan. It includes saucepans for whisking a homemade sauce or cooking your morning oatmeal, a big stockpot for soups, stews or boiling pasta, and skillets (probably the most used pan in any kitchen) that will help you turn out perfect crepes or a simple grilled cheese sandwich.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
T-fal C514SE Excite Nonstick 14-Piece
  • Medium weight so that they maintain the heat nicely and so far cook pretty evenly.
  • Enough pieces to cover most cooking needs, while not overwhelming.
  • Non-stick surface works great! I have followed the instructions for washing, seasoning, and avoiding metal utensils and no scratches so far!
  • Distributes heat fairly evenly and the heat indicator does change to reveal when the pan is heated to a good cooking temp.
  • Larger fry pan is small - not great for cooking for more than two people at a time.
  • I would have preferred a larger sautée pan over the very small egg pan and measuring spoons, but it's not a dealbreaker at all.
  • One Egg Wonder while cute isn't really needed and I find problematic to use even on my smallest burner.
Rachael Ray Classic 75813 Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
  • As long as you take care of them, they will last you a while, until you can afford to purchase 100% stainless steel cookware.
  • I wanted a stainless steel set with soft handles, I had no idea it would be hard to find a set that wasn't cheap but wasn't expensive either. This set fits the bill :)
  • Purchased two years ago, both hand wash and dishwasher safe, maintains great shine, easily clean, wipe with a towel after cooking, place in sink with soapy water, if needed a little stainless steel cleaner.
  • These stainless steel pots and pans are the worst thing on the market. I would not waste my money if I had to do it all over again.
  • The quality of stainless steel is poor and will not last very long.

What customers say about "Features"
T-fal C514SE Excite Nonstick 14-Piece
  • Easy clean up! Really just a little soap and hot water clean these up in seconds with very little effort.
  • The lids fit well and they also have a steam escape to help prevent boil overs.
  • Red color is nice! Normally not a fan of red cookware but the red on this set is nice and earthy - more of a brick red than a bright red.
  • Clear glass lids make it easy to see food while it cooks without having to remove. Lids fit nice and snug and the steam vents work well.
  • Oven safe to 350. I didn’t use in the oven but this is a great feature to have for certain cooking techniques! To avoid warping/damage I definitely would not go over the recommended heat or leave in oven for too long.
  • Hard to pour directly out of the two sauce pans without making a mess - spouted lids would be more helpful for these.
  • Not very durable - I accidentally dropped the smallest sauce pan and it did bend a little - I found this out when I realized the lid wouldn’t fit right afterwards.
Rachael Ray Classic 75813 Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
  • My favorite feature is the silicone handles that are very comfortable and cool to the touch.
  • The handles never get hot and everything is a good size.
  • I love these pans and worth every penny. Only rubber handle stainless I could find and they are great.
  • So, these fit that bill. I love the silicon handle covers to diminish heat.
  • Seems the handle is too heavy to hold itself up. Even when full of water it has a tipping issue and forget trying to put it on the stove empty, it just falls right off onto my feet every time...ouch!
