Product reviewed: Abbio Stainless Steel Cookware Set

As someone who regularly cooks anywhere from one to 12 hours a day, my pots and pans take a beating. The Abbio Kitchen Stainless Steel Cookware Set is like a breath of fresh air, adding excitement to my cooking routine and some new essentials to my array of cookware.

The set quickly became an integral part of my kitchen. It comes with five pieces: small nonstick skillet, large nonstick skillet, saucepan with lid, sauté pan with lid and stock pot with lid each nestled in its own cotton bag for safe keeping.

Some key features make the individual pieces amazing: The nonstick skillets are oven-ready up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, scratch-resistant, free from PFOA and harmful chemicals, induction-ready and easy to clean. There are two sizes of skillets: a small 8-inch skillet that is great for making eggs or sautéing vegetables for one person, and a larger 11-inch skillet that’s great for stir-frying or cooking eggs and vegetables for a few people.

The stainless-steel pieces include a 2-quart saucepan, 3-quart sauté pan and 6-quart stock pot, each with matching stainless-steel lids that are oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, tri-ply and induction-ready. One of my favorite things about the stock pot is that the ergonomic handles do not get hot when you are using it. I often need to use potholders or towels when handling stock pot handles to avoid getting burned, so this is a particularly useful characteristic. The sauté pan is suitable for searing animal proteins and braising, and the ergonomic handle and helper handle on the other end make transfer from stove top to oven a breeze. The saucepan is small but mighty. I’ve used it to reheat smaller portions of food or soft-boil a couple of eggs.

I tested all the pieces in the set numerous times making a variety of foods from meat to eggs to vegetables, and different cooking techniques, including braising, sautéing, and boiling. All of the cookware performed beautifully every time and there were never any tough spots or rough patches when it was time to clean – even with fried and scrambled eggs!

This durable, good-looking set has yet to disappoint and already has become vital in my kitchen. I look forward to using it for many years to come!
