I use these for potato wedges, steak fries, bean burgers, veggies, and more. They have heft and haven't warped after many uses. We wash by hand and after a few uses, I have taken to using parchment paper for easy clean-up--regular-sized Silpats didn't fit. I'm able to fit two of these pans side by side vertically in our oven. They have a 375-degree limit. Bought two and have since bought two more in case the first two ever wear out. Dimensions are 17.9"w x 11.7"d exterior and 15"w x 10"d interior cooking surface.
This set rocks!! It's so Non-Stick it's crazy. We started playing around with cheese, milk, eggs and marshmallows to see if we could get anything to stick and nothing did. Everything is cooking very evenly also. Best set I've ever owned, hands down!!
The knives are sharp and sturdy. I like that there is a built-in sharpener and the slots are pretty much all the same size so you don't have to guess which slot each knife fits into. The set looks professional.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...These are the best knives I have ever used, and I work for a meat company. These are just as good of a quality if not better then a knife that my company spends [$] each on. I defenitly recommend people to buy this set.
I purchased the Kitchen Aid Triple Riveted Cutlery set for my son's wedding shower. My soon to be daughter in law loved them and reports that they uses them all the time. Both love to cook, so it was a sharp gift that they will use for many years to come.
I am enjoying my pans. I have had to do some research on how to care for them though. Yes, heat them and then add oil is a good idea.
That way it does not get too hot before you put in the food and splatter all over. Make sure to add the oil slowly. Cooking spray does not work the best. It tends to leave brown spots. They come off with a product
recommended by Kitchenaid. I accidently got the pan too hot and the bottom turned coppery colored. I tried vinegar, baking soda, and dish soap. It would not come off. I went and got this product and it saved my pan. Vinegar works well to polish. Absolutely no dishwasher for
these pans. I repeat no dishwasher!! Also Medium heat is high enough
to boil water in these pans. I did wash them once in the dishwasher and they turned bluish. Vinegar polished them back up, but I will be hand washing from now on. I have been cooking for twenty years and otherwise am happy with my pans.
I grew up on stainless, but for the past decades I've been using non-stick pans. Now with the evidence about non-stick, I asked for new pans for Christmas. I did a lot of research on stainless steel pans and how to treat them.
I learned new things in my research.
1- No dishwasher
2- Hot Pan - Cold Oil
Just say no to the dishwasher.
I used to put the oil into the pan and then heat them up. According to my research that is exactly wrong. Stainless will act non-stick if you heat the pan THEN put in the oil/butter.
Foods do have a tendency to stain cookware. [...] is a dry cleaning powder that helps clean the pans to the just-like-new state.
I find these pans wonderful and a good buy. Make sure you understand the difference between stainless and non-stick, and how to take care of them, and they will last longer than any non-stick pans you get.

Love this cookware !!! Fabulous!!! Best Cookware!!!
Love, Love, Love this cookware!!! This is a great stainless steel cookware set. I was so tired of the peeling teflon, non-stick pans, so upgraded to stainless. This set is great! I cook everyday, usually three times a day, my cookware must be durable and easy to use. I love every piece. From eggs, soups, stir fry, rice, beans, chicken and rice, gravy steak, fudge, peanut brittle, you name it and I cook it - I cook everything you can imagine and everything turns out perfectly. These pans cook everything like an expensive pro set. I especially love the easy clean up. These pans look beautiful, even after every day use. We have an old gas propane stove which is hard to cook anything on low, but that is no problem with these pots and pans. Thank you KitchenAid and thank you Target for such a great price on this set of wonderful cookware!!!
If you have always used the traditional round pans, you should definitely look into a sprinform pan. These pans are awesome! They allow your cake to emerge unharmed unlike some cake pans allow if there is not enough grease on the pan. Try this. You'll love it!
I bought these loaf pans a year ago and they look the same as the day I got them. I spray [...] in them, pour in my banana bread batter, and after baking my loaves, they pop out easily with even baking. I'm really glad I bought these pans!
The nonstick surface on my old muffin pan was wearing away so I tossed it. I went to Target and saw many. The Kitchenaid muffin pan was a little more expensive than some of the others, but it's worth it! I have used it three times so far. When the muffins are done, they literally slide right out of the pan.
Follow directions to keep it nonstick--do not oil the pan and hand wash, even though it's so clean after I use it, I am tempted to put it away in the cupboard without washing it...
I highly recommend this.
I love making blueberry muffins for my husband. He loves the way the house smells when they come right out of the oven. This mini muffin pan not only keeps my husband full, but keeps our home happy:) This pan is also great for making tiny smore cups, cupcakes and tarts.
This would be a great baking pan except for one thing, The glue that holds the label on the pan is indestructible. I have dealt with label holding glue before and it was simple to just rub it off the pan, but this glue wouldn't budge. After I was unable to rub it off, I tried to soak it, which yielded no results, and I tried to scrub it, which after wearing down one of my scrubbing pads eventually got the glue down to a sticky residue that won't scrub off. No matter how much effort I put into scrubbing a sticky film still remains on the pan and I don't much want to include that in my meals. Would be a great pan, but do yourself a favor and buy a different one, or at least check and see if they start using different glue for the label on this one.
