Yes. But make sure you buy the tri-ply 18/10 stainless. Their other products are not induction-ready.

I bought this set, and the 5-qt Dutch oven was not magnetized. When I called the company, they said it was an error in packaging, and they replace the Dutch oven with one that does work on an induction cooktop.

No, they only go up a little on the sides; however, they perform almost as well as ALL-CLAD. Adjust your flame and you wont have burning issues on the sides of the pans. I have only found this to be a factor on some lighter sauces.

Hi baltoboss,

Yes, you may use a metal spoon or spatula to stir within a stainless steel pot and pan. HOWEVER, the metal spoon or spatula may scratch the bottom or sides of the vessel.

To keep scratches from occuring, you may consider using only a wooden, nylon or plastic utensil.

Should you have additional questions, please contact Tramontina's Customer Service Department at 800-221-7809 or via email at tusa@tramontina-usa.com.

No. The handles do not get hot when cooking on the stove. They are solid cast stainless, and stainless is a poor heat conductor. The aluminum center layer in the tri-clad pan allows it to heat quickly and evenly, but heat does not transfer well down the handle.

The investment cast stainless steel handles are designed not to conduct heat.

There is a transition point about half way up the handle, and this keeps the functional handle cooler than it would be with a solid handle or a handle without a transition.

Dear Anonymous,

Since the handles on this cookware set are stainless steel, they will become hot during the cooking process.

To avoid injury, always use protective mitts while handling cookware when it does become hot.

They're all metal. So I'd say keep your pot holders handy. That said I think the heat doesn't transfer to the handles as much as you would expect.

Others have noted it, and I will too: these are heavy. Heavy is no guarantee of quality, but when you see them in person, you know Tramontina is serious about making a name for themselves.

If you are looking for reassurance of quality...

The "Tramontina Tri-Ply Clad" cookware are triple layer from top to bottom. Not to be confused with "Tri-Ply Base", which is only triple layer on the bottoms.

They are also made of 18/10 stainless steel, which means they won't rust, and will keep their shine.

Cook's Illustrated gave the "Tramontina Tri-Ply Clad" a "Best Buy" recommendation.

The "Tramontina Tri-Ply Clad", are comparable to the much more expensive "All Clad" brand. Which cost about 4 to 5 times more than the Tramontina. If you google "All Clad" vs Tramontina, you'll find lots of good reviews touting Tramontina as a better bang-for-your-buck.

Tramontina 18/10 tri-ply cookware is sometimes called "Gourmet" on the label, but this is confusing as the Tramontina Gourmet line is a different line than the 18/10 tri-ply cookware line.

If "Gourmet" is observed on the 18/10 tri-ply cookware label, just associate "Gourmet" with a generic name, and not with the separate Tramontina Gourmet line.

Dear Anonymous,

The cookware items within this Tramontina 10 Pc. Cookware Set, available exclusively online, are the same items as those found in the Tramontina 8 Pc. Cookware Set (black box) you saw at the store.

The only difference is the composition and capacities of the sets and vessels between the two cookware sets.

The tramontina set has solid lids that you can't see through, BHG has the glass ones. Tramontina also has 2 larger fry pans, a dutch oven without the handle and a stock pot. BHG has an 8 in and a 10 inch fry pan and a 3 qt deep pan with lid instead of the stock pot. The BHG pots are also a little smaller than the Tramontina. The handles on the BHG seem to be a lot nicer to hold as well. The Tramontina set has a V shape to the bottom half of the handle that digs into your hand. I would suggest BHG set instead. It is a better value and a much better looking/feeling set.
