As commonly mentioned in similar Bialetti cookware reviews, the brand, Bialetti, started in Italy with its famous 1933 Moka Express coffee-maker. The company has since expanded and has become widely known for its high quality, simplistic, functional, and stylish designs in cookware. This Bialetti set is part of their non stick range featuring ceramic nonstick interior and a hard anodized construction.
The Bialetti Cookware Ceramic Pro design
The great feature of this Bialetti ceramic cookware set is its hard-anodized aluminum exterior, which will give it durability. The manufacturer’s claim that it’s twice as tough as stainless steel, in fact.
The benefit of the aluminum base layer is that it conducts and distributes heat quickly and evenly.
The gray cooking surface is ceramic and nonstick, meaning less oil used in cooking (= fewer calories). Being ceramic, the nonstick layer on the Biatelli pots and pans is PFOA and PTFE free.
Bialetti pans had their origins in Italy and the Italian heritage is evident in this set’s stylish design.
The Bialetti Ceramic Pro cookware is best for…
The beauty of the Bialetti pots and pans is their fast heating and versatility of stove to oven use since they are oven-safe to 400°F – higher than most ceramic nonstick cookware. The handles are stainless steel giving them better heat resistance than phenolic resin types (Bakelite) that are used on most others.
The bases of the Bialetti pans are made of heavy gauge forged aluminum, which ensures excellent heat distribution.
The handles are cast stainless steel, making them oven safe, while handles are riveted.
The exterior is heavy-gauge hard anodized aluminum, which gives the outside of these Bialetti pots and pans long-term toughness.
Clear view lids
The set contains tempered glass lids with vents. The lids have U-shaped stainless steel handles.
The pots and pans and their lids are oven safe up to 400 ºF.

Care and cleaning
How to care for your Bialetti ceramic cookware?
Always cook on moderate heat. Never use metal utensils. Use only plastic, wood or silicone tools. Avoid scouring the surface and pay attention to the area around rivets. Use only non-scratch sponges.
As with all ceramic cookware, I recommend hand washing, especially since the ceramic surface makes cleaning simple and so effortless. Just running water into them or simply wipe with a paper towel will give these pans a quick clean. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or this will damage the surface and lessen the life of the product.
Take care in cleaning around the riveted areas (where grime can build up) so as not to compromise the cooking surface.
Burning foods may stain the surface. For resistant stains, heating some white vinegar and then cleaning may help.
Always store with care. Avoid stacking, which may harm the inner nonstick coating during storage. Pan separators can help.
