Construction

The base of the Chef’s Star 17-Piece Pots & Pans Stainless Steel - 17 Piece Professional Grade Pots & Pans Set - Non Stick Induction Ready Cookware Set w/Impact Bonded Technology – Toxin Free, Dishwasher Safe is comprised of three layers: stainless steel, aluminum (middle layer), stainless steel. The interior layer is 18/8 stainless steel. The bottom of the cooking vessels is encapsulated with an impact bonded aluminum, which helps ensure that the heat is distributed evenly throughout the base.

Impact bonding is a procedure whereby pressure and friction and not adhesive, are used to form the bond between the base of the pot or pan (stainless steel) and the disc (a heavy gauge aluminum).

In the manufacturing process, the disc is put on the base of the vessel, then placed in an impact bonding machine where pressure and friction are applied, resulting in the formation of a bond. 

The sides of the pots and pans are single stainless steel with a thickness of .6mm (per Chef's Star customer service).

Lids

The lids are glass and have a vent. They are high temperature resistant up to 482°F. The handles and rims are stainless steel. 

Handles

The handles are ergonomically shaped and have an anti-slip satin finish, ensuring that you don’t drop your food when transferring the cookware.  

Warranty

The product comes with a one-year no questions asked warranty policy.
