Anolon Professional Hard Anodized Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set Product Description

The Anolon Professional Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set is a popular high quality and high end hard-anodized nonstick cookware set which rivals the quality of Cuisinart at a slightly cheaper price. The pots and pans are made of hard-anodized aluminum and coated with DuPont’s exceptionally durable, three-layer Autograph nonstick. Designed with riveted, stainless-steel, stay-cool handles (oven-safe to 500 degrees F). Also features (this is amazing) limited lifetime warranty

The pots and pans heat quickly and evenly without hot spots and resist scratching and denting. Everything washes easily (food does not get stuck to the bottom or sides) and the food cooks really well and evenly in them. We especially like the well-fitting glass lids so you can monitor what you are cooking without having to lift the lid.

Anolon Professional Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set PROS AND CONS


  • Non-stick works really well!
  • Feels thick and durable. Nice heavy feel
  • Handles designed well. Grip of the pans is nice
  • Cleanup is surprisingly easy
  • Lids feel quite solid

Be aware of

  • Even with careful care, the non-stick may still end up flaking a tiny bit when compared to the Cuisinart Hard-Anodized Nonstick Cookware.
  • Lids and handles are not protected and WILL get hot
  • For some these may feel too heavy.


This non-stick cookware set is tough to beat. Great and durable for everyday use. Really great quality, rivaling Cuisinart’s similar cookware set at a bit of a less expensive price. The Anolon Professional Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set is a high quality hard-anodized nonstock cookware set with many happy buyers. Highly recommended.

What Buyers Are Saying

“Had these for about a month now and used all of the pots, pans, skillets at least once in this time. Everything is still good with them and I enjoy them. They are SUPER easy to clean up. I’ve noticed things that would take me quite some time to clean with the cheap Walmart type pans are a breeze now. One thing I also found that is in common with other reviews, is that the handles on the pots and pans are NOT insulated. They get very hot, you will likely burn yourself at least once. I love them, they are awesome, but not perfect. I’d feel good about recommending them to someone…(READ MORE)”

“This is the first set of decent pans that my husband or I have ever had. The price is good and the performance of the pan is absolutely amazing. It doesn’t make me hate cooking less, but the use and clean-up sure make it easier. I would recommend this pan with no reservations. … (READ MORE)”

“I have had a set of Anolon Professional pots for 7 years, and I use them constantly. I love everything about them. They are a breeze to clean, and I’ve never had a problem with scratching. The glass lids are great. They are extremely durable and well-made, and the nonstick surface has lasted without problems. They are solid and a little heavy, but not too heavy. They are the best bargain out there… (READ MORE)”
