Why Use Hard Anodized Cookware

 


what is hard anodized cookware

 

Rachael Ray Hard anodized cookware has a hard cooking surface, is nonstick, definitely lightweight, affordable for any budget and easy to clean.

The electrochemical process to make
hard anodized cookware
is an easy process, at least scientifically.

  • The pan (minus the handle)  goes into a chemical bath of sulfuric acid.
  • Next,  a low electrical charge is applied to it. During this process, an oxide acid is produced from the layer that forms on the surface.
  • Once the oxide layer is cooled, the outer shell of the pan anodizes and becomes extremely hard almost immediately — much harder and stronger than even stainless steel.
  • Aluminum, which is a naturally soft metal, becomes 2x harder than stainless steel after this process.  This makes it virtually stain and scratch resistant.

100% PFOA-Free  

The

has a 100% PFOA-free non stick cooking surface for your safety and satisfaction.

This PFOA-free non-stick aluminum surface allows for even heating of the bottom and sides, and prevent cold spots.

This will ensure your food cooks thoroughly and evenly, keeps food from sticking and makes the cookware easy to clean; but most importantly, it does not contain e Teflon.

PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) is a potentially toxic chemical compound used to create a non-stick coatings, like Teflon.  It has been linked to health problems in human and animals.  If the surface gets too hot, becomes scratched or chipped, this can allow toxic fumes to be released into the air and absorbed into the food.

Riveted on Handles

 

 

Rachael Ray Cucina

 

Rachael Ray Cucina comes with riveted on ergonomic handles and silicone grips.   They are permanently double riveted on for your safety.  They will never come loose or or fall off.

The ergonomic handles are shaped to fit naturally in your hand.  This will prevent injury to your hand or wrist, when cooking or carrying the skillet or pot from the stove top to your table.

This is a definite benefit to cheaper cookware with handles held on with screws.  These inferior handles can rust, come loose and potentially fall off and cause damage or injury.

What are People Saying?

 

Have had these for almost 6 months and they look the same as they did when I took them out of the box. Also, nothing sticks to any surface of it. Truly non-stick and dishwasher safe!

I love this set of pots.  So glad we bought them.

These pots and pans clean so nicely! I’ve had these for about 8 months now and the non stick surfaces also still work very well, even with us washing these a couple of times each week in the dishwater.

I was apprehensive at first given some of the negative reviews but now I am happy I bought these. I now use them every day since I bought them a week ago. They are truly non stick, cook food evenly and they are gorgeous!

Absolutely glad I got these. Great quality. The utencils are obviously a throw in item and not that great of quality but the pots and pans are very sturdy and robust.
