It’s almost time for that giveaway I told you about here. In order to get ready, I’m writing a review of the prize I am giving away, 1 (one) T-fal Stainless Steel with Thermo-Spot 12-piece Cookware Set, as well as a review of the Cooking Planit App, because that’s our awesome sponsor – Cooking Planit! My giveaway starts Tuesday (aug. 20) so I hope you’ll come back to enter! With this giveaway there are 50 us, and EACH of us is giving away a set. That’s 50 sets of cookware. Pretty awesome odds!
As I said, I want to tell you about this awesome cookware. I’ve used the cookware a handful of times now. Different pots, skillets, pans. One night we used almost the entire set in one fell swoop, but most of you probably aren’t cooking for 6 or 7. I also used to cook a meal using the Cooking Planit App for my review. This is the meal we made, and it was amazing! We made Sauteed Chicken Tenders with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce , Corn on the Cob with Cayenne Parmesan Butter and Grilled Asparagus. It was the perfect back to school meal and you can read about that experience here. (can’t access the links for the recipes?

We’ve used T-fal products for years, so I am no stranger to the quality of their products. When my package arrived, and I was opening it, the first thing that stuck me was how carefully everything was packaged. There were even rubber pieces keeping the lids from scratching the pans in transit. I love that.
Once I got everything unpacked, I sat and stared at my set in awe. It was so pretty (and new, I love new). But I had to get down to business, play with it, try it out, investigate what I loved about it, besides the fact it was pretty. I first noticed how sturdy the pan set was. I could tell they were made for long lasting durability which is important since I am in the kitchen every single day not only as a mom, but also a food blogger.
One of my favorite features was the measuring lines that are inside the pans. It means the elimination of dirtying up a measuring cup when measuring out cream, milk or water. I put it to the test that same night with some rice, and it was spot on. Love it.
Another feature is the Thermo Spot. I love that the saute pans have this. This allows you to know when it’s ready. The circle in the middle (the thermo spot) will change from a pattern to solid to let you know that your pan is ready to go. The first thing I made it one of the saute pans was an omelet and let me tell you, not a single thing stuck to that pan. And no, I didn’t spray it first because I was in a hurry and it was a busy school morning and cleaning the pan was ridiculously easy having not used any spray. Love that nothing stuck to the pan. I have since used it to grill chicken with olive oil and to make grilled cheese sandwiches and every time the pan comes out clean and there is no sticking. (unlike my everyday pans which I am seriously considering tossing at this point haha)
While I tried pretty hard to convince you of how awesome this set is, I know you’ll want to see more information and you can do that here on the T-Fal website.
