Cooking for a family of five can result in quite the mess in the kitchen, especially during holidays and special occasions. I quite often find that after a long week, once Friday rolls around, the last thing I want to do is cook a meal and have to clean up a mess, so we order take out. That way the only dishes I have to clean are the plates and forks that we used for the meal. An sink full of pots and pans that need to be soaked, then put into the dishwasher really isn’t something I want to focus on, as I would rather spend time with my three children. Then there are those nights that we make a huge mess in the kitchen and decide to clean it in the morning and there are always pots and pans that need some extra work getting dried food off from them. Times like that make me thankful that I now have the BralaneHome 8-pc. Hard Anodized Cookware Set to provide me with an evening of stress free cooking!
The BrylaneHome 8-Pc. Hard Anodized Cookware Set contains a durable non-stick finish, which not only gives it an attractive look, but it works amazingly well! Food never sticks to the pan while I am cooking, so I don’t have to worry about overcooked/burnt food. This set provides quick and easy heating, minimizing the amount of time you actually spend cooking and preparing the food.
The stay-cool silicone handles are perfect for when you are busy in the kitchen and lose your oven mit… or maybe that’s just me? I seem to always be misplacing spoons, spatulas and oven mits while I am cooking a meal! Either way this is no longer an issue since the handles stay cool enough to pick up without hurting my hands.
Each of the posts comes with a cover and I love that they are glass, allows me to keep a better eye on the food that is cooking. I swear my rice is cooking in half the amount of time, and veggies steam in minutes… simply amazing!
The Ultimate Test
I could go on and on about how fabulous this cookware set is and that cleaning them is by far the easiest of any set I have ever owned. That really means nothing to you if you can’t personally see them work… am I right!? So I decided to show you two examples of the two most frequent meals that I cook at home but are a pain to clean up after.
I have three children, two of which demand scrambled eggs for breakfast all of the time. Usually I cook them first thing in the morning and then I rush around getting everyone for the day, completely forgetting to clean the pan. The I am forced to soak the pan for the day in order to get that burnt egg off of it.
For the testing purposes only (I swear I clean my dishes every day, hehe) I allowed the pan that I cooked eggs in to sit for two day. As you can see from the image below, the egg peeled away effortlessly, without leaving anything behind. I did not have to run this under water, scrub it down with a sponge, or scrape it off with a spatula! I simply wiped all of the leftover egg mess off with my hand into the trash, then hand washed it in the sink for sanitary purposes. Amazing right?
My second meal that my children love and adore is my home made mac n cheese. I make my own cheese sauce for this, which requires that I simmer some deliciousness in the pan before mixing it up with the pasta. I can’t tell you how many pans I have given up on cleaning after this meal and just threw them in the trash! This cheese sauce can get really sticky and messy, even soaking it and scraping the food away doesn’t always clean it all up. As you can see from the image below, when using the BrylaneHome pan, the cheese sauce doesn’t even stick to the pan, instead forms a liquid that is super easy to rinse off in the sink. Again… amazing! The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” really holds true when it comes to these two examples I have given you. These truly are a convenient and quality cookware set that is going to provide stress free cooking. Even my husband has mentioned to me several times just how much he loves using these new pans and how it has increased is enjoyment when it comes to cooking. I recommend this set 100% and am confident you will love it just as much as I do!
