Rated 5 out of 5Â by stewarjl Tramontina the best cookware I have purchased
I absolutely love this cookware. The pot is very heavy, but the benefits outweigh the weight. It holds the heat evenly. It heats hotter than other pots or pans, but just a couple times cooking with these I got familiar with how it cooks. The enamel is wonderful, much heaver duty than some ceramic pans I have purchased. I have been searching for other sizes to purchase. I just love these and they will last my lifetime!!
I cannot say enough how much I like them.

I have been looking to get rid of my nonstick cookware for health reasons and wanted to give this a try. I have been very pleased with this purchase. I use it often it's one of my go to pots. It holds quite a bit. For example I can make a box macaroni and cheese in it easily. It cleans up well. It is a heavy sauce pan. It's just about as heavy as I could handle. if it were heavier it would be too much. I would like to add other pieces to my collection.

This was my 3rd purchase to add to my set of the Tramontina white-enameled cast-iron pan set in cobalt blue. They are very sturdy. Food prepares very well in them, without sticking. Cleanup is the easiest that I've ever had in decades of owning pans! I don't put them in the dishwasher. But the cleaning just takes a few minutes- since nothing ever sticks or anything like that. You can cook the stickiest or messiest dishes that will be a breeze to cleanup. They are pretty and designed well. The handle on this 2&1/2 quart pan is not so long that it is dangerous either. I also have the big braiser & the round dutch oven style pan. I use them all often. They are very heavy. So for me to hold them up like to pour food from them is difficult to tell the truth. But I use a very large ladle that has holes in it to scoop the majority of the food over to whatever I'm transferring it to. Then I can stand to hold it long enough to pour the small amount left. I do not use metal utensils on it, as the manufacturer recommends not to do that. They take a little getting used to on adjusting temperature, since the cast iron can get very hot and hold that heat for awhile. But if you keep that in mind, starting & keeping the temps lower than you would in a normal pan- you'll do fine. I really like my set. I hope to be able to afford more in my lifetime. They could stand to be priced lower for my budget. But compared to other pans and their quality, it's not bad.
