Good quality stainless steel is the name of the game with this set. But that is not all. The bases of these pots and pans have a multi-layered construction. They have two layers of stainless steel, and inside is a thick aluminum core. This gives a quick and even dissipation of heat.
Having heat that is spread evenly makes cooking quicker, saving some money. But it also ensures the contents are cooked at the same rate.
Handles and Lids
The pots and pans have an attractive style of handle that is unique to Farberware. The handle has a stylish curvature finished in black. It doesn’t heat up during the cooking process. For convenience, it also has a hanging ring.
Likewise, some design thought has also gone into the knobs on the lids. Shaped to resemble a bell, they look stylish. The lids, like the pots and pans themselves, are stainless steel. They also have rolled rims to ensure a nice tight fit.
This set of cookware includes 15 pieces. There are two non-stick skillets of 8 inches and 10 inches, that are both non-stick.

This is another set of cookware from Farberware that includes everything you will need. But it also has some extra items for desserts.

4 Farberware 10570 Millennium Nonstick Cookware Pots and Pans Set, 12 Piece – Best Budget Farberware Cookware Set
Next in our Farberware Cookware Reviews, buying a cookware set is a convenient way of getting exactly what you need for cooking. But not everyone needs every pot and pan that you can buy. This Millennium Nonstick Cookware set from Farberware has just the basics of what you might need.
This has been made not only to look good but also to be durable and long-lasting. It has an inner core of aluminum. That, as we have seen, provides an even heat all over the bottom of the pan. It then has a porcelain exterior with a bronze finish. Quite an attractive look.
The surfaces of the pots and pans are non-stick and feature Farberware Smart Glide Technology. Cleaning is therefore made easier, and it is also resistant to abrasions from metal utensils.
Handles and Lids
The handles are quite long with a gentle curvature. This provides a good grip. Each handle is fixed to the pot or the pan with two rivets. There is also a small fitting to the end of each handle to allow them to be hung on the walls.
The lids are made from glass which some people prefer to allow them to see in the pot while cooking. It has a snug fit over the top of the pot to retain the heat inside. Rather than having knobs for the lids, they are fitted with handles.
As we said earlier not quite as many pots and pans as some sets, but we think it is still quite adequate. It is a 12-piece set with 8.5 inches and 11.25-inch deep skillet frying pans. There are a 5-quart Dutch oven and one and two-quart saucepans. All have lids except the skillets.
With this set, you also get some Prestige nylon cooking utensils. These are a slotted turner, pasta fork, and a slotted spoon.

5 Farberware Millennium Stainless Steel Cookware Pots and Pans Set, 10 Piece – Best Basic Farberware Cookware Set
This is another cookware set that might be considered smaller in number than some others. However, for some, this 10-piece set will be perfect.
No one is going to complain about the look of this set. It is polished stainless steel that has a shiny exterior, so it is going to add some ‘chic’ to the look of your kitchen.
It has a typical Farberware design with a double-layer stainless steel base with an aluminum core. The addition of the aluminum ensures the heat is spread evenly across the bottom of the pots and pans. This gives you a good distribution of heat at the base level.
Farberware calls this design their Tulip shape. And we have to say it has a very pleasant look about it.
You are able to use this cookware with all cooking stoves, including induction cookers. And it is oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Handles and Lids
The slightly arched handles are also made of stainless steel and are double-riveted to the pot or pan. This adds an extra security when lifting from the stove when the pot or pan might be heavy. The handles remain quite cool when cooking and do not overheat. Nevertheless, we would still recommend using some protection when lifting anything from a hot stove or oven.
As some cooks prefer, the lids are made from a thick, toughened glass. They have a tight fit which helps keep the heat in during the cooking process.
There are 1-quart and 2-quart saucepans that both have lids. Eight and ten-inch frying pans, a 3-quart saute pan with a lid, and an 8-quart stockpot make up this set.
This is a very attractive and cost-effective cookware set. As an added bonus, being a stainless steel construction, it is free from any toxic additives. It is not only great to cook with but adds a lot of style to your kitchen.
- Great stainless steel looks at a cost-effective price.

6 Farberware Glide Dishwasher Safe Nonstick Cookware Pots and Pans Set, 11 Piece – Most Stylish Farberware Cookware Set
If you are one of those people who like things a bit different, this cookware set might be of interest. A lot of cookware designs are quite similar. But this one stands out from the crowd and really looks the part. Finished in a striking Teal blue, it also has a non-stick copper-colored interior to the pots and pans.
Cookware that has good heat conductivity will ensure the food is cooked quicker. This cookware set is made from a durable aluminum with that ceramic copper coating inside we mentioned. As we have seen in other cookware sets, aluminum helps to spread the heat evenly. This helps the contents to cook faster.
It has what they refer to as Copper Slide technology. This describes the non-stick feature and the ease with which food can be cleaned from these pots and pans. Also, the design of the pots and pans features a flared rim. This makes pouring the contents a little easier and reduces potential spillage.
Easy on the Oil
Because these pots and pans have their ceramic non-stick coating, they don’t need quite so much oil, which is obviously a health benefit.
Comfortable to use
Sometimes the most awkward part of cooking is lifting pots and pans from the cooktop. This set has handles that are covered in a strong and durable black plastic.
While adding to the overall look, this also means they will stay cool to the touch during cooking. They have openings at the end to allow them to be hung after use. Plus, the lids are made from shatter-proof glass, and each has a heat-resistant handle.
Taking care of them
It is best not to use metal utensils with this set as this could scratch and damage the non-stick surface. Better to use nylon or wood. This set is compatible with most types of stoves except induction.
There are 1-quart and 2-quart saucepans, both with lids, and a Dutch oven with a lid. Also, two frying pans, one 8.5 inches, and one 11.25 inch. Returning to our comments on taking care of the set, Farberware has included some suitable utensils. They are a slotted spoon, pasta fork, and a slotted turner.
