Christopher Kimball by 1919 Cookware is a unique collection of 5-ply cookware consisting of 7 different pieces.  It is the perfect heavy-duty cookware with a rounded, ergonomic handle design that stays cool when used on a stove top.  

Unless you're a personal chef, it's easy to get distracted when cooking and the better the pan, the more forgiving it is.  So if you happen to step away for a couple of minutes, you won't return to find burned onions, over cooked chicken or a pan blackened on the bottom that needs to be cleaned before continuing on with the recipe.  Ultimately, forgiveness is the highest praise one can give cookware.  

This collection combines the simplicity of design and function with the highest quality.  Christopher Kimball by 1919 Cookware is made in the USA to provide superior results in the kitchen and to make cooking easier and more enjoyable.

Why Buy Stainless Steel Cookware?

The workhorse of all cookware, our stainless steel cookware collection enjoys its well-deserved reputation. Forming the renowned 5-ply construction are two layers of professional-grade stainless steel wrapped around three layers of aluminum. Each ‘ingredient’ provides critical components to every piece - even heat distribution and retention through the aluminum, and induction stove compatibility with the exterior/magnetic layer of stainless steel.

What does that actually mean? It means that our carefully constructed, high-grade materials create cookware that is extraordinarily durable. With proper use and care, our stainless steel cookware won’t rust, won’t react to acidic foods, is resistant to stains, can be used on high heat, can be used on any cooking surface, AND can be used under the broiler. It is oven safe to 500 degrees and can even go in the dishwasher. Plus, you’ll never need to guess what size pan you need to use for a recipe since capacity is clearly etched on the bottom of every piece.

With no seasoning required, Christopher Kimball by 1919 stainless steel cookware is ready to perform, whether searing, browning, sautéing or more. Many pieces in our stainless steel cookware collection include recessed, precision-fitted stainless steel lids; not only do they reduce the inevitable cooking splatter, but their eye-catching satin finish lends itself to easy cleanup, an appealing feature for every cook. Riveted stainless steel handles provide control and durability and have the added benefit of staying cool to the touch during stovetop cooking.
