March 7, 2011 6 min read

To make just the right dish, you need the right cookware. Lifetime Brands provides cookware that offers superior quality and value from the brands consumers know and trust, including Sabatier, Hoffritz, Cuisine de France and Pedrini.


— The Toss: The signature piece for all the brands in the cookware series is the Chef Toss pan. This collection includes the Egg Toss, Griddle Toss, BBQ Toss, Hamburger Toss and Sandwich Toss (complete with a sandwich press). With a toss instead of a turn, each specialty pan is designed to cook the designated food to perfection.

The Chef Toss pan is a combination saute and fry pan in one, perfect for cooking vegetables, eggs over easy, omelets, stir-fry, grilled sandwiches and more. The aluminum construction features interior and exterior durable nonstick coating with a comfortable, stay-cool handle and non-slip silicone grip. The pan's distinctive angled design allows you to rearrange food in the pan with a toss instead of using utensils, ensuring that food is cooked evenly and without bruising.

Suggested retail price of the Chef Toss pan from Sabatier, Hoffritz and Cuisine de France ranges from $10 to $30.

— Rack Roaster: While everyone needs a roasting pan, the Sabatier Rib Rack Roaster offers so much more. This multifunctional roaster can be used as a traditional roaster, a pan to bake lasagna or a rack to cook ribs. The professional weight-roasting traditional rack can be inserted into the pan to cook up to a 25-pound turkey, chicken or duck. Flip over the rack, insert the conversion bar, and use the rack to cook ribs in the oven.

The nonstick carbon steel pan is also large enough to use by itself for baking a number of other dishes, including ziti, while the heavyweight cast aluminum handles make it easy to pull the pan in and out of the oven. With a dishwasher-safe pan and rack, it is oven safe up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and can be used with metal utensils.

Suggested retail price of the Sabatier Rib Rack Roaster is $50.

— Everything Pot: This is an ideal choice for cooking enthusiasts on a budget. Perfect for all stovetop recipes, this 8-quart stockpot features 18/10 stainless steel construction for even cooking and conductivity.

The Hoffritz Everything Pot comes with a large capacity stainless steel basket for cooking pasta or steaming vegetables. A separate stainless steel mesh insert fits inside of the larger basket, which allows cooking for two different types of noodles or veggies.

The tempered glass cover provides easy viewing while cooking. All pieces are dishwasher safe. Suggested retail price is $80.


— Pedrini: Inspired by Italian and European design, the Pedrini 10-piece cookware collection offers artful shapes and colors, which are driven by innovation and superior function.

The stainless steel collection features high-polished stainless steel and impact-bonded encapsulated aluminum core bottoms. Cast stainless and silicone stay-cool handles provide comfort, while tempered glass lids allow you to peak inside. Suggested retail price is $150.

The anodized collection features hard-anodized aluminum bodies and quantanium nonstick interiors. Stainless steel, high-polished lids are included. Suggested retail price is $170.

Pedrini's aluminum collection is made with heavyweight aluminum bodies with red, black or orange exteriors. The handle is produced with a silicone overmold to keep it cool while cooking, and the tempered glass lids let you see what's cooking. Suggested retail price is $130.

— Cuisine de France: Offering quality cookware at a great value is the cornerstone philosophy of Cuisine de France. The Precis 8-piece collection is the perfect combination of sophisticated and affordable styling and performance. The aluminum, nonstick exterior and interior are ideal for both precision cooking and easy cleaning. The soft, silicone handles provide a safe and comfortable grip.

The set includes a 5.5-quart Dutch oven, a 1.5-quart saucepan with a glass lid, a 3-quart saucepan with glass lid, a 8-inch and a 10-inch fry pan, and a 11-inch stir-fry pan. Suggested retail price is $70.
