12 Piece Cuisinart Green Gourmet® Set


Cuisinart Green Gourmet
is a 12-piece 100% PFOA-Free non stick hard anodized cookware set.

This is the best nonstick cookware for those who want to use healthy green cookware free of toxic chemicals.

When we purchased our Cuisinart Green Gourmet non stick cookware set, we were looking for a PFOA-free non stick cookware set.

We immediately liked that in addition to having a natural Teflon-free non stick coating, the
Cuisinart Green Gourmet
had a feeling of quality with the hard anodized aluminum surface, riveted on handles that won’t fall off or come lose, high quality construction you can feel when you pick up a skillet or pan, the pans can be put in the oven up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and and has tight fitting metal lids to keep heat in your food, where it belongs.

Cookware Heats Up Evenly and Quickly

When we used the Analon Non-Stick Cookware, it took what seemed like forever for the pans to heat up.

We are very pleased at how quickly the
Cuisinart Green Gourmet
pans and skillets heat up.  It takes just a few minutes.  If you use a gas range, just put the heat to medium or low medium.

This is the great energy saving feature of the
Cuisinart hard anodized cookware
.  Do not use medium high or high heat, and this will over heat the pans, and may cause damage.


Cleans Easily


The Ceramica coating on the
Green Gourmet by Cuisinart
  prevents food from sticking and makes cleaning your non stick cookware a breeze.  You can just use a soft cleaning pad with a little soap and warm water.  The food comes right off and your Green Gourmet pans are ready to use again.

Do not use a cleaning pad with a rough surface, such as a Brillo pad or scouring pad. You will scratch and damage the surface of your cookware, and  this will void your warranty.



Lifetime Warranty


Cuisinart stands behind the quality and construction of Green Gourmet non stick cookware.  They offer a Lifetime Warranty for their cookware.

  1. After seeing all the reviews in your blog regarding this cuisinart green gourmet, I have decided to use this cuisinart green gourmet cookware. I like to use this because of it’s 70% stainless still. I am really thankful to you for sharing this eco-friendly cookware pot.

  2. Hi Ken,

    Just noticed in the first part of the review is says 350 F is oven safe limit. Later, you say 450 F.

    I’m looking into the granite coatings now. Have you any experience/knowledge of them?


    • Hi Tom,

      Thanks for your question.

      I believe at one point Cuisinart stated the Green Gourmet cookware was safe to 450 Degrees in the broiler.

      Now the website states safe to 400 degrees. I have updated my review to this new temperature specification.

      Regarding granite coatings, are you talking about stone cookware?

      We have a set and absolutely love it.

      Just a few drop of water and it’s fully non stick.

      Hope that helps.

  3. Hi Ken!

    Thank you for exposing me to this eco-friendly pot. I like that it’s 70% stainless still.
