Enjoy reliable cooking performance with T-fal Ultimate hard-anodized nonstick cookware. Its innovative Thermo-Spot heat indicator lets you know when the pans are properly pre-heatedâa critical component to sealing in moisture and delicious flavor, whether sautÃ©ing vegetables or searing steak. When the pattern in the center turns to a solid red spot, the pan is hot and ready to cook. The cookwareâs hard-anodized aluminum construction heats quickly and offers long-lasting strength, while its warp-resistant even-heat base distributes heat evenly throughout for optimal cooking results. Use the cookware on any cook top, except for induction. PFOA-, Lead-, and Cadmium-free, the cookwareâs durable Expert nonstick interior offers a health-conscious option, effortless food release (little to no fat or oil needed), and easy cleaning. The cookware’s vented tempered-glass lids trap in heat and moisture, while its silicone stay-cool handles come riveted for strength, offer a secure and comfortable grip, and have end holes for optional hanging storage. Oven safe up to 400 degrees F (lids up to 350 degrees F) and dishwasher-safe, the T-fal Ultimate 14-piece set includes 8-inch and 10.25-inch fry pans; an 11.5-inch fry pan with lid; a 10.25-inch square griddle; 1-quart, 2-quart, and 3-quart sauce pans with lids; a 5-quart dutch oven with lid; and a 3-quart steamer insert with two side handles. With T-fal Ultimate, you’ll be ready for anythingâfrom making delicious dinners during the week to cooking up a storm for the holidays or entertaining year-round.

The inside coating is like new, except for the largest skillet. I can still fry an egg and have it slide out, but high temp stuff like chicken will stick a bit.
My biggest complaint is that the handles on some of the pans are slightly loosened. They are rivited they get loose over time and there is no way to fix them.
– Family of five (5)
– Heavy usage of large saucepan and large pot
– Hand-wash for all pans/lids (we don’t have a washer anyway)
– Use pots and pans 2-3 times per week
– Types of food cooked (a few examples):
– Salmon, Trout, (fishes)
– Vegetables (frozen and fresh)
– Ground beef
– Frozen meals (such as Voila)
– Ground beef
T-fal claims vs. our experiences:
– “The unique T-fal thermo-spot heat indicator shows when T-fal pan is perfectly preheated to seal in the flavor of your food”
In our experience, the heat indicator only shows clearly with *very* high temperatures. At normal temperatures, the indicator is only barely visible.
-“TechnoResist Anti-Warp base provides outstanding warp resistance and even heat distribution for optimal cooking results”
We haven’t seen ANY warping of the pans, although the large pot lid has warped slightly (possibly during cooling or cleaning) and still fits on pots.
-“Riveted silicone handles”
The handles are great! They are very comfortable to use, easy to clean, and have zero heat-transference (we don’t worry about burning our hands, even without pot holders)
-“oven safe to 350-degree f”
Can’t vouch for this, never tried. I wouldn’t be surprised if this were true.
-“The revolutionary exterior coating allows daily dishwasher use while maintaining T-fal Ultimateâs hard anodized satin grey appearance”
After one+ year of use, we haven’t seen ANY dulling of either the interior or exterior of the pots or pans. The non-stick interior is amazing for two reasons: a) You don’t have to use non-stick spray (and SHOULDN’T because it will ruin the surface) and b) Cleaning is extremely easy, even for hardened food (like spaghetti sauce). The exterior is also non-stick which means that cleaning the outsides is just as easy.
TL;DR: This set lives up to T-fal’s claims and works/looks just as well after a year of regular use as the day we received it. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cooking set for any reason (new family, replacement, additional cookware).
We REALLY like this set. They are very light which is good but it is also something to be mindful of since it can easily go sliding on the stove top. After a few uses your mind adjusts so it does not happen very often. Each item is well balanced and the handle never gets hot to the touch. Unless you put them in the oven then you should use a oven mitt etcâ¦ Just like anything else you would use in the oven. They are very easy to clean. We do not put them in the dishwasher though. Being non-stick makes clean up a breeze! We use all types of utensils plastic and metal and we had our first little nick in the finish which I will point out in the photo. We have used it about a dozen times after that and it has not flaked or any change so I am not concerned about it. No issues with the lids. They are all still in perfect working order.
It is not perfect though. The biggest lid fits the biggest (10.25â) fry pan but the middle lid (8â) only fits the biggest pot and sauté pan but not the fry pan. it is annoying. 1st world problems, right? The rivets are not non-stick. those can take some work getting clean. Eggs in particular are a nuisance. Those are my gripes. that’s it..
I take that back. My last gripe is the site page itself. They are reusing some pictures that do not reflect the T-Fal Titanium line. The best way to tell if you are buying the Titanium is that the base of the pan/pot will say titanium and the rivets will also be coated. Thatâs right folks they fixed my gripe in the titanium. I have the hard-anodized non-titanium version. I also have a 5-quart titanium sauté pan and the rivets are coated. That pan is perfect in my humble opinion just too big for normal everyday use.
The photos are as of 3-14-2017. I only took pictures of the most used items the two fry pans and a pot. All others are in even better shape! Hope my review helps with your decision. Why is my non-titanium review in a titanium product page? I do not know. When I went to past orders and clicked on it this is where it directed me to. Honestly though.. If I had the titanium line. it would be 5 stars.
