From The Manufacturer

T-fal C530SC Signature Nonstick Expert Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Black. Created with the home chef in mind, T-fal Signature nonstick cookware provides an array of user-friendly features. Its innovative T-fal Thermo-Spot heat indicator makes it easy to properly pre-heat pans, which helps seal in the flavor of food, whether sautéing or searing. When the pattern in the center turns to a solid red spot, the pan is hot and ready to cook. The cookware’s heavy-gauge aluminum construction heats quickly and offers long-lasting strength, while its even-heat base distributes heat throughout for reliable cooking results. Use the cookware on any cook top, except for induction. Recyclable and PFOA-, Lead-, and Cadmium-free, the cookware’s durable nonstick surfaces—inside and out—offer effortless food release (little to no fat needed), quick and easy cleaning, and a healthier choice when it comes to cookware. The cookware’s vented tempered-glass lids trap in heat and moisture, while its ergonomically designed heat-resistant handles offer a secure, comfortable grip and have end holes for optional hanging storage. Oven safe up to 350 degrees F and dishwasher-safe, the 12-piece T-fal Signature nonstick cookware set includes 7.75-inch and 11-inch fry pans, 1-quart and 2-quart sauce pans with lids, a 5.5-quart dutch oven with lid, a 10.25-inch griddle, and a spoon, ladle, and slotted spatula.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The T-fal set succeeded in separating itself from the other value cookware we tested in resilience and durability. Other pans we tested showed significant performance deterioration after scrubbing with the scouring pad, but the T-fal continued to allow food to slide off the surface easily.
Provides similar features as costlier models at a budget price – safe, PFOA-free nonstick surfaces, tempered glass lids, and solid aluminum design.

What reviewers didn't like

The T-fal skillet reached 500 °F in just four minutes — longer than a few others we tested but not the best. We also discovered these pans to be pretty inconsistent in terms of the way they absorb heat. The difference from one side of the pan to the other was 78 degrees after three minutes on medium heat.
Consumers found that the surfaces scratch easily, but this is mostly avoidable by using nylon utensils when cooking.
