Heim Concept 12-Piece Cookware Set: QUICK OVERVIEW
What We Like
What We Don't Like
It can be great to buy pans separately but when it comes to getting your kitchen together, you might be looking for an entire set.
The Heim Concept 12-Piece Cookware Set is made of stainless steel and comes with 6 different pots and pans (along with matching lids for each piece) that will help make cooking simpler and more efficient.
Heim Concept 12-Piece Cookware Set Review
Pots and pan differ in terms of materials, construction, overall quality, durability, weight, and the number of layers on the bottom and sides. There is a wide price range of cookware sets available with most falling into the category of inexpensive, expensive or somewhere in between. The Heim Concept 12-Piece Cookware Set is on the lower end of the price spectrum. This cookware set is induction compatible and can be used on electric, gas, glass, and ceramic stoves as well.
Who is This Product For?
This Heim 12-piece set would be a nice gift for someone who is moving into their first apartment or who is looking for an inexpensive stainless steel set. If you have a cabin, vacation home, or travel trailer you could buy a set for those places, eliminating the need to transport your everyday home cookware. This set doesn't take up a lot of space since the pieces can be stacked (invert the lids).
However, this Heim cookware set is not going to satisfy the serious cook or someone who cooks a wide variety of foods everyday. It only has one skillet and lacks a saute pan and stockpot. A stainless steel set that has pots and pans suitable for an induction hob, such as the Cuisinart Multi-Clad Pro 12-piece set, is a better quality and more durable set with a wider variety of pieces. For those who are looking for nonstick pans for an induction cooktop, Anolon has a really nice set of hard anodized non-stick cookware.
Overview of Features
On the bottom of each pot and pan there are three layers that are designed to cool and heat quickly.
All of the rims on the pots have a tapered edge, which makes pouring easy. You’ll no longer have to worry about spilling food all over your counters or clothes.
Quick Food Release
When it comes to tidying up, the polished interior of the pans is a time saver since it helps prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of the pan.
Stainless Steel Handles
One of the largest concerns of this cookware set is that the handles on both the lid and the pots get very hot. Pot holders or a towel must be used when picking up the cooking vessel by the handle.
Since the lids are made of glass, it speeds up the cooking process and is nice for those who like to keep an eye on their food as it cooks. All lids have a hole for steam release.
The two main complaints seem to be that food sticks to the pans and the coatings do not hold up well (stains on the bottom of the cookware).
Tutorial/How to Use the Heim Concept 12-Piece Cookware Set
As always, there are competing brands that might seem like a better fit for your cooking needs. A cookware set worth looking into that is comparable in terms of affordability, pieces, and features is the Cook N Home 12-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set. This induction friendly cookware set has all the positive qualities of the Heim set in terms of price stainless steel composition and features such as glass lids with a vent and riveted handles. In addition, it has an encapsulated aluminum bottom (aluminum is sandwiched between layers of 18/10 stainless steel). This type of construction leads to a more even heat distribution while cooking. It has a stockpot while the Heim Concept set does not.

Whether you’re moving into a brand new home or if you’re getting your equipment set up for a new workplace, there are plenty of options available to you when it comes to cookware.
The Heim Concept cookware set is affordable, induction compatible and can be used on other conventional cooktops as well.
However, if you are looking for better quality stainless steel induction pans, the 12 piece Multi-Clad Pro set from Cuisinart is certainly worth investigating. If you just need nonstick pans to use with an induction cooktop, then the Anolon Nouvelle Copper Hard Anodized Nonstick 8-Inch and 10-Inch French Skillets are a really great option.
