A quick guide to the Paula Deen cookware set

Some people call Paula Deen the queen of the culinary world: she offers some of the best porcelain nonstick cookware sets on the market that feature everything you could desire to make delicious foods. In her cookware sets, you can find all basic pans, pots, and utensils to cook meals. The main material is quality aluminum that heats fast and evenly distributes heat to avoid hot spots. The interior features nonstick porcelain that allows for quick cleanup and easy food release. The hands are covered with silicone and lids are made of tempered glass. Paula Deen's sets are oven safe up to 350F.

Some people don't even look at nonstick cookware because they heard all those bad things about it. However, if you're not a professional cook who only uses stainless steel or cast iron, you can benefit from a nonstick surface. Professional cookware sets require seasoning and muscles to move it around. With Paula Deen's sets, that's never a problem.

Many home cooks want the convenience of nonstick cookware sets because it allows for easier food preparation. You can quickly make gentle foods that tend to fall apart such as fish and eggs, and then clean up the mess in 5 minutes. The weakest spot of nonstick sets is that you can scratch the surface or it will wear off in 3-4 years. And it doesn't matter if you buy the most expensive set - this is one of the properties of nonstick surfaces that you can't escape. That's why I can't recommend getting high-end sets of this kind. With Paula Deen sets, you can just replace it when the food starts to stick.

In that vein, some of the biggest Paula Deen cookware sets will cost you around $100 for 15 different pieces. Each piece browns the food well and you don't need to use butter or any other seasoning for frying. I have found people saying that the set seems flimsy, although most people admit they like the pans and pots. Each piece is very lightweight and you don't need muscles to lift it. Of course, you don't have to invest in the biggest set: smaller options are much cheaper and feature a skillet, a saucepan, stockpot and sauté pan. Basically, it is everything you need in your kitchen.

One of the most obvious features of the Paula Deen sets is their unique appearance. They come in a variety of colors and finishes and everyone can find something pleasing to the eye. Even discontinued colors are still available on Amazon. However, even though beauty isn't the most important feature of your cookware, customers are pleased to find so many helpful features behind the style. This set will never fail you while cooking delicious foods and clean up is the easiest thing to do.

I have found minor complaints about scratches or surfaces that wear after a short period of time. I've also seen people commenting that the pots got warped after some time when used at high heat. Still, most people say nothing happens to the set with proper care and hand washing. The manufacturer says the set is dishwasher safe, but, as I've said many times, hand washing is always better. And nonstick cookware usually can't handle high heats anyway; Paula Deen cookware should be used under medium to medium-high heat or it will scratch, even with the right care.

The main problem with nonstick surfaces is that they don't last long. Paula Deen cookware uses Teflon that is a non-toxic surface. Regardless of multiple benefits, you shouldn't forget about its short lifespan. Teflon is a fragile surface and even if you're very careful and always hand wash your dishes, the coating will flake and scratch off after 4 years. I don't know when and how the problem starts, but you should expect 2-3 years of comfortable cooking. If you use a dishwasher, the surface will flake faster.

2 years might be a bit short for a modern cookware set, but it's a normal thing for Teflon. Some of the most expensive cookware can last for 5 years, but you should be very careful with its cooking and cleaning. I would recommend getting Paula Deen sets for 2 years and then replace it with a new one.

What I want to say is that there is a little difference in terms of quality between expensive and affordable nonstick cookware sets. If you're just starting cooking, you can get Paula Deen set and have everything you need in your kitchen.
