I used these pots for 20 years until the dishwashing detergent makeup changed and suddenly the brushed aluminum turned (permanently) black from being in the dishwasher. The black won’t scrub off (not even with Bar Keeper’s Friend), but will turn anything it touches (your hands, your cutting board, your clothing, your dishtowel) black as well. AC did not stand behind them, despite the lifetime warranty. If you can GUARANTEE they will never be put in the dishwasher, or that you don’t mind the black, these are a terrific deal. They are a dream to cook with.
Can this cookware be used on an induction cooktop?
Compatible with all cooktops except induction
Does anyone know, is this the MC2 Master Chef 2 Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Bonded Cookware Set?
