Rachael Ray Cucina Cookware Review

Rachael Ray Cucina Cookware Review

Cucina is Italian for kitchen, and the new Rachael Ray Cucina Cookware line from Meyer Cookware adds a splash of color and old world charm reminiscent of cookware found in kitchens from the old country to your kitchen.

Rather than introduce just one line called Cucina, Rachael Ray added these warm old world colors to each of her collection, and now each offers a Cucina Cookware line offering these vibrant colors, such as:



As you can see you won’t find Rachael Ray Cucina in her trademark orange color.

The  Cucina Cookware line comes in a variety of rustic and vibrant old world colors to accent your modern kitchen and your personality.

The sets also include a functional matching spatula and slotted spoon.



PFOA-Free Non-Stick Cooking Surface


All of the Rachael Ray Cucina Cookware lines are made with a PFOA-Free non stick cooking surface, so your food won’t stick, and you have the comfort in knowing you, your family, your guests and your pets don’t have to worry about possible contamination from PFOA and PTFE, the toxic chemicals found in Teflon-coated non stick cookware.


The Rachael Ray Cucina non stick cookware 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 to prevent cold spots, so your food cooks thoroughly, prevents food from sticking and is easy to clean; but most importantly, it does not contain PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid), which is a potentially toxic chemical compound used to create a non-stick coatings, like Teflon.

PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) has been linked to health problems in human and animals, if the surface is over-heated or becomes scratched or chipped, allowing toxic fumes to be released into the air and absorbed into the food.




Look for the Rachael Ray Logo and Unique Serial number


Rachael Ray Cucina Hard Enamel Cookware


Rachael Ray Cucina has become very popular as an affordable high quality non stick cookware since it’s introduction, and this has lead to many cheap knockoffs.

To ensure you are buying real Cucina Cookware, you will find the Rachael Ray signature along with a unique serial number on the back of each cookware piece.


Riveted on Handles



Rachael Ray Cucina Hard Enamel Cookware


Rachael Ray Cucina comes with riveted on ergonomic handles with silicone grips that are permanently double riveted on for your safety, so they will never come loose or or fall off, unlike like cheaper cookware with handles held on with screws that can rust, come loose and potentially fall off, which can cause damage or injury.

Customer Reviews


  • Absolutely love this Rachael Ray Cucina Porcelain Enamel Nonstick 12-Piece cookware set! I thought the colors might be a bit too much but they blend wonderfully in the kitchen, not overbearing but rather rustic and warm.


  • Having used all the pots and pans in the set, I’m ready to say that we are totally pleased with every piece! At first, I was a bit dismayed with the “pumpkin” color, but it has grown on me, and it looks great in our kitchen.


  • I received my pots and pan set and was able to break them on on my gas stove. I am a disabled Chef and I have to say I like the construction of the pots and pans and the durability. They were easy to clean and a joy to cook with. I found that they heated evenly and the color teal was fun and tasteful just what I needed to brighten up my kitchen and upgrade my previous set of pots and pans.


  • I am extremely pleased with this cookware…the surface is smoothly non-stick so very little butter or oil is needed to get a good sear, and very little time for things to boil. The size selection is great for my needs (2 of us) and the lids are tight fitting. The utensils should be omitted though as they are plastic and flimsy. I’d rather pay 5 or 10 dollars more and get decent ones. The pumpkin color is attractively rustic and not as orange as I feared. Overall? Very happy.


  • You get what you pay for. this set of kitchenware is one of the best I have ever had yet. I love the color and my wife really enjoys using these one. I like it good quality.


  • This 12 piece cookware set is very attractive and well suited to my everyday needs. I was wary of the orange color, but upon receipt was very pleased to find that this particular shade is actually quite stylish, and not as brassy and vibrant as I had anticipated. All of the pans are lightweight and feature easy grip handles. The lids fit snugly. I like the clear lids and can attest to their shatter resistant claim, as I have already dropped them! The lid handles are also easy to grasp.These pans are coated with a nonstick surface that is very effective and easy to clean. I have not seen any chipping of color or wearing away of the nonstick surface after a week of constant use, and hope that this continues. This set is easy to store on shelves, or would look very stylish if you decide to hang them.
