The Cooks Standard Multi-ply Clad Stainless Steel 10-Pc Cookware Set is suitable for induction cooktops, as well as ceramic glass, gas, and electric stoves. It can be purchased to supplement a current stainless steel cookware collection or as a replacement for non-stick cookware.
Tri-ply clad stainless steel cookware sets such as All-Clad can be expensive. However, there are other options that are not quite so pricey. The Cooks Standard Stainless Steel Multi-ply Cookware Set won't be as thick as the high-price products, but is durable and quite satisfactory for many cooks.
Included in this 10-piece multi-ply clad set are:
- 1.5-quart saucepan with lid
- 3-quart saucepan with lid
- 8" frying pan
- 10" frying pan
- 8-quart stock pot with lid
- Steamer insert with lid
This induction friendly Cooks Standard Multi-Clad Cookware Set is constructed of an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. These three layers are throughout the base and sidewalls of the pots and pans.
The interior layer is 18/10 stainless steel. The bottom is scratch resistant and composed of magnetic stainless steel making it induction compatible.
The interior has a brushed satin finish while the exterior has a smooth and highly polished finish.
The pots and pans are well balanced, due to their weight, construction and design. The pots have been described as being of medium weight to heavy. The bottoms are flat; and the cooking vessels do not rock on the cooking surface.
Handles and Lids
The handles are made of stainless steel and are securely riveted to the pot. They stay cool while cooking due in part to the open V-shaped design placed at the point of attachment to the vessel.
The lids are of 18/10 stainless-steel construction and have a loop handle.
The Cooks Standard Multi-Ply Clad Stainless Steel Cookware Set is affordable, durable and manufactured with high-quality stainless-steel. The heat is evenly distributed throughout the bottom and sides of the cooking vessels.
If you are looking for cookware that is thicker, the Cuisinart Multi-Clad Pro Stainless Steel Cookware Set is a great alternative.
Use and Care
For successful meal preparation using stainless-steel, be sure to use the correct heat (lower than when using electric or gas stoves) and pre-heat the pan the pan properly before adding oil and food.
One of the great benefits of cooking with stainless steel is being able to transfer food from the cooktop to the oven.

Responsive and prompt customer service is important to me. Some companies do not have telephone customer service and offer only an email contact form.
Not all companies who have these forms, answer queries. However, Neway International Inc. provides great telephone and email customer service. When I called Neway, the man who took the call answered my question quickly. An answer to my email query was received within 10 minutes.
The Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set is an alternative. Find out more about this set in our review.
