Yes. Take a magnet, and if it sticks to the bottom (all of mine did) then it is induction ready. If it does not stick, contact Tramontina's customer service and they will send you a pot or pan that is induction ready.

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.

lids are not tri-clad and don't need to be. tri-clad is to distribute heat on and over the cooking area and sides, not the cover. they are metal lids.

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.

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.

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.

Yes. If you're cooking for extended periods of time, you'll need pot holders. Get yourself a good set of neoprene ones that are grippy and will prevent you from being burned from steam as you peek into your latest creation.

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.

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

I recently picked up this set at a local Walmart (Site-to-Store shipment). Yes, the dimensions are correct. You will find the cookware is carefully packed, with some of the pieces in individual boxes inside the carton.

I have purchased two sets this year (2010), and both arrived in perfect shape.

The weight is 33.37 lbs. I'm a woman in my 70s with little upper-body strength left, but I managed to heft it out of the shopping cart and into my Honda Civic's trunk.

The box that I received was tall and thin. Each of the pans are in their own, individual box inside the main packaging box. It is relatively light, though. I didn't measure it, but guarantee that the box was taller than 26 inches.
