If you’re specifically after a great nonstick set, the All-Clad HA1 Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set has your back. It passed our tests in style with a sleek black finish and shiny metal handles. The handles are long enough to create a perfect balance with any pan, and thanks to the characteristic concave shape of All-Clad, it is very comfortable to hold. The pans are a bit heavier as they are well made from durable, strong hard anodized aluminum. All-Clad also covers them with three layers of PFOA-free non-stick material, creating a smooth surface that facilitates the release of food. They work well too. The lid fits snugly on the pot and traps the steam inside to create some of the best rice in the test group. We were also impressed with how crispy our chicken skin was. This set creates a hard burn that most non-sticks can’t touch. When it all comes together, this set becomes a clear choice for anyone who prefers non-stick materials. Our only major complaint was that the pans don’t nest very well, making storage difficult. This hard-anodized non-stick set certainly seems expensive at first glance, but with a wide variety of pots and pans, it’s worth every penny.
