Cristel Comparison Guide

MetroKitchen's Guide to Cristel Cookware

Cristel stainless steel cookware is more than just pots and pans. Cristel is actually an entire cooking system. This French-made gourmet cookware is designed for efficient storage and, our favorite, efficient loading in a dishwasher! Most important, Cristel is ideal for all of your cooking needs. Cristel cookware heats quickly because of its construction -- quick heating aluminum is totally surrounded by top quality stainless steel. The cooking surface is 18/10 stainless steel, which means that it will not interact with any foods you are cooking. Cristel is also induction compatible. Check out this video so you can see Cristel's efficiency.
