Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

All of the cookware set is oven safe up to temperatures of 350 degrees F. It is also heat resistant up to temperatures of 570 degrees F. This means that the cookware can be easily moved from stove to oven. All of the cookware is 100 percent dishwasher safe. It is also incredibly easy to wash by hand as food is easily washed away due to the nonstick properties. The outside of the cookware is also very easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Inside the cookware, it has a ceramic nonstick surface that promotes healthy cooking and easy cleaning. The cookware is free of toxins and can defy high temperatures of up to 570 degrees F. With a lifetime limited warranty, this is an excellent tool to add to your kitchen.
Heats up fast – Because of the aluminum construction and thinness of the pieces, be warned that the pans will heat up very quickly. You don’t have to wait long before the surface is ready for cooking. Cleans nicely – The nonstick interior cleans up nicely with sponge and soapy water. A simple wipe is all that is needed to get rid of food residues.
The impact-bonded back plate technology is used to encase aluminum bottom, thus protects the vessels from high heat. Further, the light aluminum material allows for fast heat transfer, meaning you start cooking immediately you turn on the fire.

The first, and one of the most important features of ​T-fal Initiatives Ceramic Nonstick Cookware Set, is the fact that it is one of the rare sets consisting of the ceramic interior. This feature makes the set resistant to scratches and stains much more than other sets of a similar kind.
Retailing at a very competitive price compared to other best-selling ceramic pots and pans, this cookware set is definitely worth a close inspection based on its brand image alone. It comes up with amazing features, the whole set is dishwasher safe and even oven safe up to 350 degrees F. It comes along with ceramic coating and compliments the ease of use of this product.
T-Fal uses an affordable heavy gauge aluminum throughout its cookware pieces in this particular line. The interior is a gray ceramic lining with nonstick properties. The handles are heat resistant and riveted to the sides of the pans for durability. Lids use tempered glass with heat-resistant handles, and the lids are vented to allow excess moisture and pressure to escape.

What reviewers didn't like

The spatula that comes with the set to use with the egg pan, is a little on the small side.
The screws on the handles loosen quickly making the handles to be unstable or to fall off. The cookware fades quickly and thus it should not be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Durability unproven – Since the T Fal Initiatives Ceramic set is fairly new in the market, there is still a lack of reviews about its durability. There is no doubt these pieces work fine when new but ceramic cookware are also known to chip and peel over time. It is a risk to take and the common expectation for nonstick pieces is for them to be replaced after a few years.
Not induction plate friendly. Shipped within the USA only. Limited lifetime warranty excludes dishwasher damages.

This set’s durability is unproven. Even though it has heavy gauge aluminum construction, which should make sure that it is usable for a long time, this product is new and there are few comments about its long-term usage. One of the items in this cookware set is too small, and therefore useless, by the customers’ comments.
Some buyers have complained that T-Fal Initiatives Ceramic pan is kind of useless due to its extremely small size. It is too small even normal-sized spatula would not fit in it for you to rotate and cook the egg, therefore; it is one item in the pack that will be left unused.
If you’re upgrading from your budget set to another, you may be disappointed by the weight of T-Fal’s line. It’s more likely to experience some warping at very high heats, and it isn’t induction cooktop capable.
