We know OXO Good Grips have been making excellent products for any and all uses in the kitchen. But do all products live up to their name? We will try and find that out for you! Today we are reviewing a massive OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro Dishwasher safe 12 Piece Set. If you are planning to change your set, looking for a great gift for a new family this review might help you out to decide.
Let’s take a look what is in the OXO Good Grips 12 Piece Set
You will get 8” and 10” Open Fry pans, 1 Quart and 2 Quart Covered Saucepans, 3 Quart 9.5” Covered Skillet, 3 Quart Dutch Oven and 6 Quart Covered Stockpot. Overall you will find all essential pots and pans to make most of the dishes that you can think of.
OXO Good Grips Non-Stick pots and pans set is made from Hard-Anodized aluminum that ensures superior heat retention and even cooking. We had the chance to use this set and can assure the pans heat really quickly and evenly.
Products are German-Engineered, PFOA-free, 3-layer with non-stick coating for easy food release and cleaning.
The set is dishwasher safe, but honestly it being non-stick allows for easy cleanup using a simple paper towel.
As the manufacturer mentions the products are durable, scratch-resistant and oven safe up to 430 degree Fahrenheit. We have used Teflon-safe utensils on all of the pans and pots and could not see any scratches on the top of the product, however, the bottoms are a different topic. We used the pans and pots on a Viking range and it seems the bottoms are scratching very easily even from the first uses when turning or moving the pans.
Compared to other pans and pots OXO Good Grips dishware is heavier but not as heavy as a cast iron. The handles are wonderful! They really live up to the name Good Grips. They will balance the pans very well for smooth moving or flipping and in general have a great feel.
Finally, OXO Good Grips pots and pans have unique rolled edges that are designed for drip free pouring of sauces, reductions and anything else, which is a very convenient addition that we did not see in many other pots or pans.
Overall OXO Good Grips Pots and Pans set looks really nice and professional. The assortment of pieces is great and will make sure any cook or chef will find a piece for any recipe.
Engineering sadly did not live up to OXO Good Grips standards. The rolled edges are great, handles are magnificent, but the bottoms of the pans and pots scratch so easy on the range stove tops. If you are going to store them in a closet or cabinet that’s fine, but you won’t be able to hang them, because they will not look pleasing.
Keeping in mind that the set goes for $300 the engineering flaw should not have been here. Still it is a great buy for yourself or as a present for an amateur or a professional kitchen.
Our final score for OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro Dishwasher safe 12 Piece Set is 8.5/10, mainly because of the bottom scratching and little steeper price.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
