Make every meal special with Cuisinart. There’s always something special when you’re cooking your own food, and so much more for the people you love. Every day you want healthy and delicious food that keeps stomachs satisfied. For me, the right tools help make meal preparation an occasion to look forward to. From the knives you use to prepare the ingredients to the pots or pans you use to cook them altogether, Cuisinart has a great selection of kitchenwares to help you make all your favourite culinary specialties. Consider Cuisinart’s 11-piece Elite Collection of nesting pans and 15-piece knife block set, which we are giving away in this contest. Read on to learn about them, then enter for a chance to win one.

We have sent a sample of the nesting pans and knife set to Christine Persaud for review. Read her reviews of the Cuisinart cookware and the knife block sets.

What I love about the 11-piece Cuisinart nesting cookware set

From its stainless steel construction to its thermo-conductive property, there’s so much to love about the Cuisinart Elite Collection. This cookware set includes a 1.5-quart saucepan, 3-quart saucepan, 3.5-quart sauté pan, 6-quart stockpot, 8″ open skillet, and 10″ open skillet. Plus, it comes with 4 pieces of lids with their own rack. There’s two things I like most about this set that’s worth mentioning: its non-stick ceramic coating and the nesting tabs.

Ceramic coating so food won’t stick

Non-stick cookware works wonders. I do a lot sautéing and some frying. Definitely, what I don’t need in my cookware is when my ingredients stick to the surface from high heat. Think about ingredients like tofu. When you’re not careful about the pan you use to fry or sauté, tofu easily sticks to the surface, and you’d end up with broken and unevenly cooked pieces. With ceramic coating food won’t stick to your cookware, plus it’s safe to use and won’t react to your ingredients so you it won’t alter the flavour.

Nesting tabs make for easy storage

Another thing to consider when getting a cookware set is where to store them. That’s why the nesting tabs are a win for me. I have a small apartment with a small kitchen, and I find that organizing is often a nightmare particularly when it comes to big pieces of cookware that take up so much space in my tiny cupboard. I’m sure you know what I mean!

It’s one thing to stack pots that don’t fit together, and it’s another thing when they end up damaging each other. The nesting tabs allow you to stack together your pieces of cookware with no worry. Plus, I also like the lid rack included in this set. Without a dedicate rack lids are just difficult to organize.

All your food prep needs in the Cuisinart 15-piece steel knife block set

If you don’t have a good set of knives yet, I recommend you get one. I admit, it was only recently that I got myself a Cuisinart block set of cutlery, and since then my food preparation has transformed. A set like this makes cooking easier, with everything you need in just one place.

Ergonomic feel for better grip

The 15-piece Cuisinart steel knife block set is designed with rivets for a great ergonomic feel. When it comes to cooking, prepping my ingredients is my first order of business. From mincing spices to chopping vegetables, and cutting meat, a lot of the work is done on the chopping board, even before turning on the stove. I need a set of knife that slides well into my hand for a comfortable grip and gives me a lot of options as I prepare a variety of ingredients.

With this 15-piece Cuisinart German steel knife block set, you get an 8″ chef knife, 8″ bread knife, 5.5″ serrated utility knife, 5″ santoku knife, 3.5″ santoku knife, 3.5″ paring knife, a set of six 4.5″ steak knives, a pair of 8″ all-purpose household shears, an 8″ sharpening steel, and a knife storage block.
