By Barbara | May 7, 2018

The quality of your cookware has a significant impact on your dishes. The material, the quality, the size, every little detail matters in cooking utensils if you want to serve up the best meal possible.

One of the most renowned kitchenware brands worldwide is Wolfgang Puck Cookware. The brand is by the chef Wolfgang Puck and is one of the many companies he owns.

People are often asking – is this cookware any good?

Every single product in this line is made to be used by professionals and at home alike, for each product is designed in a way to not only make cooking simpler but more fun activity.

The less trouble one goes through while cooking, the more fun the activity becomes for them, and the cooking utensils line provides precisely that.

With numerous sets of numerous finishes, materials, designs, and sizes, there will undoubtedly be at least one for every cooking enthusiast out there.

Wolfgang Puck Stainless Steel Kitchenware

When it comes to pots and pans, stainless steel is considered to be the best material for it.

The product line has many different collections of kitchen utensils, from small sets to sets with almost 20 pieces so everyone can get what they want.

The kitchen utensils are made from the best alloy which can go onto any stovetop, including induction as well (selected models only – check product description before buying!).

Alloy steel is not only used in households but is also the material profession chefs prefer mostly because the metal does not leach into the food even at high heat. This material does not chip, rust or stain easily and will go scratch-less for long times to come and is super durable.

Lastly, the WP sets are a sight to the eyes because of the ergonomic and attractive designs. These could potentially replace your serving bowls.

Stainless Steel Cookware 10 Piece (WPDS10PC)

Check Price This set is not only beautiful to look at but very functional as well. The set includes a one, and a half quart covered saucepan, a three-quart saucepan that has pour spots and a colander cover, an 8 inch and 10-inch omelet pan so you can have your omelets however you like it, a 10-inch covered sauté pan, and last of all an 8-quart covered stockpot.

Every single one of the products in the set is made of heavy-gauge alloy which helps these utensils to withstand heavy-duty use.

The bottom of all of these products is encapsulated aluminum. The aluminum lets the heat transfer a lot faster than your average metal. The results are faster and much more even heating which helps to cook dishes to perfection.

The handles provided with every item in the set are also made from steel. Except these are double-riveted and cast iron which overall helps you to get a good and secured grip while cooking.

Some of the pieces in the set also come with a tempered glass lid which helps to trap in the heat and moisture, eventually keeping all your nutrients intact. The items are oven proof up to 400 °F and also dishwasher safe.

Customers have said that these are not non-stick even though they are made of alloy, a common misconception amongst most buyers. Although a lot of customers have complained about chipping, others have said it is only due to using a lot of extra heat which this particular utensil does not require.

Because of the encapsulated aluminum base, a minimal amount of heat is needed to get properly cooked meals, and any more can end up damaging the product, or at least its bottom.

18-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set (SWC1815)

Check PriceWhen talking about large pot and pans collections, we all know the best ones are made of steel. The brand offers several lines of pots and pans, and the Wolfgang Puck SWC1815 18 Piece kitchenware set is one of them. Being one of their largest collections, this is loved by families, especially big ones, and is a standard gift item for large families as well.

This large set of 18 comes with a 1-quart saucepan and a 3-quart saucepan that have to pour spouts and colander covers on both for ease of use. The two sizes are also convenient when it comes to cooking different types of meals. There are a 5-quart Dutch oven and an 8-quart stockpot; both come with glass covers, so it is easier for the cook to see how their food is coming. The collection also sports an 8-inch omelet pan and an 11-inch sauté pan which also comes with glass covers.

Lastly, there are six additional tools to make cooking more of a more relaxed job. These tools include a slotted spoon, a solid spoon, a sold tuner, a slotted turner, a whisk and a fork.

Customers who have bought this kitchenware have said that the glass lids will shatter if too much heat is applied, and also have recommended not to wash while the pots are hot as that might end up destroying the material.

Other than that, most reviews are positive about the kitchenware being beneficial and cooking meals very evenly throughout. However, these are not induction stove friendly, so they will have to be used on regular stoves.

All the lids that come with every individual pot are composed of tempered glass and metal, and so are all the other tools. The handles are made of Y-cast steel.

All these are oven safe up to 350 degrees for the lids, and 400 degrees for the pans and are dishwasher safe, although it is recommended to hand wash to maintain the shine. Reviews about this product are pretty much all positive, and customers love every bit of it.

Wolfgang Puck Hard Anodized Cookware Sets

Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat and one of the most commonly used materials for kitchen utensils. For that reason, even steel sets use aluminum as the bottom for an evener cooking and heat distribution. Amongst the many collections and types of kitchenware that Wolfgang Puck has, there is also a line of hard anodized kitchen utensils.

In normal conditions, aluminum is considered to be toxic, but because these are anodized the aluminum does not get into the food, so it is not harmful. What makes these anodized sets so great are that they are super hard wearing, and they are one of the most long-lasting of all materials used for making kitchenware. On top of that, it is very affordable as well.

These sets do not chip, they do not peel, and you do not have to use them light-handedly like you would with other materials.

12 Piece Hard Anodized Cookware Set (SWCHA12)

These items can also be used in the oven, which means you can pop them in without worry. The handles are made of metal and are double riveted which adds strength and durability. The glass lids are all composed of tempered glass which allows the cook to see their dish.

The insides of these kitchenware items feature Eterna nonstick, a form of top coat from Whitford. This coat is convenient while cleaning, and of course during cooking as well as nothing sticks to the sides.
