Tools of the Trade Belgique Stainless Steel is an essential 14-piece cookware set. It comes with 3 different types of inserts for you to diversify your meals and enjoy features you have never used before.
The copper bottom is one this set’s main features. It is known that copper is an effective heat conductor, so you will save energy right from the beginning.
And because it is such an effective heat conductor, if you cook with the tempature too high, it will quickly stain the bottom of your pots and pans set. So it practically makes you cook at lower temperatures. This can not be better, since you save energy and at the same time the heat spreads evenly and cooks the food faster.
Compared with stainless steel bottoms, the copper bottom stays heated longer and retains the heat much better.
All 14-pieces are beautifully shaped. Resembling the form of a bell, the pots are quite chic. Smartly designed, the handles keep your hands away from the heat of the pots and pans. The silicone used for the handles could not be a better choice.
