Cuisinart MCP-12N Review

Cuisinart MCP12N set

This is my honest Cuisinart MCP-12N review where I will tell you the story about how my husband got addicted to cooking thanks to this tremendous stainless steel cookware set.

My husband has not stepped his foot in my kitchen for a long time.

But then, as funny as it sounds, he suddenly got interested in this whole cooking thing after one-too-many nights spent half-asleep watching Top Chef and Masterchef reruns.

It just looked so much fun and easy for him! So, it wasn’t long till he announced that he should get his first cookware set. After doing the quick research online, he has found the great Cuisinart Multiclad Pro MCP-12N.

Here is what Sven told me about his excellent choice.

Why Did I Choose Cuisinart MCP-12N?

It was a chef friend of mine who mentioned the MCP12N set to me and claimed that this is one of the best stainless steel cookware sets you can get for the reasonable amount of money.

She said that since I was just a newbie, I should try something that’s not too much on the expensive side.

I’ve heard (and read) that a 12-piece set can go from $400 to even thousands! So, like the trusting friend that I am, I followed her advice, and I ordered the product

With the CuisinArt MCP-12N Multiclad Pro 12 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set (what a name!), not only did I become a step closer to realizing my Masterchef dreams, but I also managed to save myself a lot of bucks that, quite frankly, I can use on other things such as cookbooks and other cooking materials!

So, let me tell you about the first time that I tried one of the pans. Now, bear in mind that it’s not the dish that we’re talking about here, it’s the quality of it.

For my first “dish,” I decided to use the 8-inch skillet to make a grilled cheese sandwich. Accurate enough, there was no sticking-in-the-pan, and I don’t know if it’s just me, but that, that was the best grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever had!

Every piece of this cookware set did not disappoint. I’ve been using it for about three months now (almost every day), and it all still looks brand new - Multiclad stainless new.


Cool grip handles

The Cuisinart MCP-12N Multiclad Pro stainless steel cookware set features metal cool grip handles. They are designed to remain cool even at high temperatures.

The handles keep the stovetop cool as well as remaining cool themselves. This will ensure a comfortable and easy cooking experience for the user. It also prevents unnecessary accidents.

Triple-Ply Construction

The Triple-Ply construction features a brushed stainless-steel exterior. It also comes with a mirror-polished interior and pure aluminum core. The stainless exterior produces a quick release of heat through a non-reactive process.

Aluminum has an extremely high rate of conductivity. Thus, the core distributes heat evenly. With thorough conduction of heat, 'hot spots’ appear less frequently.

Oven safe up to 550F

The pots and pans are made of stainless steel, which has a high conduction rate. This causes the cookware to be heated up very quickly even at low heat.

Luckily, the oven is safe up to 550F. So, users do not have to worry about overheating.

Compatible With Induction Cooktops

This great cookware set can be used on a variety of stovetops, and it is induction ready. This makes it convenient for users who own induction stovetops.

The cookware heats up very fast. So, the induction cooktop uses electromagnetism technology to speed up the cooking process.
