Uses Vapor Technology?


360 cookware

360 Stainless Steel Cookware, uses Vapor Technology, which is a unique cooking process that locks in steam and moisture under the domed lid.

Heat is circulated up and around the food, due to the dome shaped lid, that helps cook it  faster in its own juices and liquids, so there no need for added oil or fat in the pan, and since heat and moisture are trapped under the lid and can’t escape, you are able rely on less heat and energy for healthy cooking, so you only need to use the low or medium heat setting on your stove top and save energy.


This popular 360 Waterless stainless steel Cookware line locks in steam and the food’s own water and juices to heat the food and inject more flavor.


What makes Vapor Technology a revolutionary cooking method, is due in part to the unique design of the domed lid, which forms a tight seal around the lip of the pan.  This locks in moisture and circulates the hot air around, under and over the food to cook it faster.  This is a form of convection cooking.

This energy efficient Vapor cooking method creates a low but intense heat that permeates food evenly from the bottom, sides and top, allowing food to cook in its own natural juices without the need for cooking oil or excess water.

With the lower heat requirement of Vapor Technology, you will notice that:


  • You only need to use the low or medium heat setting
  • Chicken, fish, pork or meat will not stick to the pan.
  • Food does not dry out from too much heat.
  • Turn rubbery and have a hardened texture from cooking too long in uneven heat


With 360 Cookware you get perfectly prepared food every time.  You can now cook chicken breasts or pork chops to juicy perfection and delicious baked potatoes to fluffy tenderness in a fraction of the time without turning the heat above medium or adding a drop of oil.



Product Features:


  • Heirloom quality
  • Allows you to Cook without use of water or oil
  • Saves energy and time
  • Cladded 3 ply construction
  • 110 Gauge Thicknesss

5-Ply Stainless Cookware That Needs no Oil


5 ply%20cookware full

5-ply Stainless Steel Cookware

5-Ply 360 Waterless Cookware  Pots and Pans, which are made with T-304 Surgical Stainless Steel, has a claded aluminum core, which is sandwiched between two pieces of stainless steel that runs from bottom and up the sides for even heat distribution.  

Only the best stainless steel cookware is 5-Ply stainless steel. You see, while stainless steel cookware is beautiful and shiny to look at, is durable, scratch and stain resistant, and won’t absorb smells and flavors of the food, by itself stainless steel is a terrible conductor of heat.  Regular stainless steel cookware often heats unevenly with cold and hot spots so food cooks unevenly.

That is why 5-ply stainless steel cookware contains an aluminum core. Metallurgists discovered aluminum is a great conductor of heat, but is too soft to be used for cookware, so by sandwiching the superior and efficient heat conductivity of aluminum between two pieces of sturdy stainless steel you end up with the perfect cookware, which is durable, sturdy, stain resistant and heats the bottom and sides efficiently.



360 Cookware is Oven Safe


360 Cookware is oven safe to 400° F.



Bake on Stove Top


As you know baking in the oven at  350° – 475° F uses a lot of energy, including gas and electricity.

In keeping with desire of Americraft Cookware to develop a line of energy conserving green stainless steel cookware that reduces the use of our precious natural resources, you can actually bake in the 360 Cookware on the stove top using medium to low heat setting.



Riveted on Handles

Induction Ready


The 360 Stainless Steel Waterless Cookware is induction ready.  In keeping with energy efficient cooking, the bottoms of every 360 Cookware piece, including the consumer and professional 360 PRO line, have magnetized bottoms, making them compatible for use with induction stove tops.

Induction cookware has a magnetic field on the bottom, and the burner only turns on when the magnetic field on the burner comes in contact with the magnetic field on the bottom of the cookware.  This cookware was made popular in Europe and is becoming popular in the US.

Induction cooking uses significantly less energy since the burner only turns on when induction ready cookware comes in contact with the induction burner.  This also prevents burns, as only the burner and not the surrounding area get hot.  You can take the pot off and put your hand on the burner, and it will bre cool to the touch.

This unique waterless cookware is perfect for families with small children that like to touch everything in the kitchen.

What 360 Waterless Cookware customers are saying…


I was so excited to try my new cookware. It’s fantastic. I love the way it cleans up. I was browning chicken breasts for a recipe and accidently over cooked one side and they stuck to the pan. Clean-up was a breeze. I just filled the pan with one inch of water, brought to boil and presto … wiped right out. They still look brand new and I have used them everyday. Word to the wise … we cooked your recipe of skillet lasagna, delicious; however, the lid got stuck. So, after trying to undo the lid I decided to read the manual. Said to bring the contents back to medium heat to remove the lid. It worked! Great cookware. Love it, and it’s so nice looking as well.
– Amy from Douglasville, GA

I received my saute’ pan ( skillet ) recently . I found it hard to believe that a pan this big could heat so evenly. Thanks for a great American made product.

I am still learning to cook with the 360 Cookware. I tried chicken in it first and cooked it too long or too hot. The next thing I tried was frozen black eyed peas and broccoli with very little water and they turned out great. My next attempt was parsely new potatoes. I finally got the heat right and used very little water and trusted the cookware to do what it is supposed to. These turned out awesome. There is a learning curve especially learning what works with my stove but I’m getting there. I have two pieces and as soon as I can afford to, I will be adding another to my collection.

We love cooking eggs in our cookware. But waterless veggies is a close second. Can’t wait to cook lasagna on the stove! Yes, it is easy to take care of. We do love our cookware. It takes longer to heat up, but retains heat for a long time! Tried cornbread on the stove. Was edible but need to try again. LOVE the idea of baking on the stove!!! We heard about waterless at a home show, and did a search for a more affordable set. W also wanted a brand that was made in US! We have recommended them to our family and even made another big purchase last week!!

Scrambled eggs (so far) – did not burn them; cooked evenly and cleaned up great!
