Bialetti Aeternum Cookware: Review and Giveaway

For being basically inept in the kitchen, I am accepting a whole bunch of cooking and baking reviews lately!  And you know what?  I am getting SO.MUCH.BETTER!  I think part of the reason I am starting to enjoy cooking is that I am starting to amass the correct tools needed to make a successful (and tasty!) meal.

The latest product I have been asked to try is the Aeternum line of cookware by Bialetti.  Before I share my thoughts, here is a little about the pans:

aeternum pan Our beautiful Aeternum line of cookware combines a beautiful design with modern eco friendly cooking technology for best results.  The eco friendly Aeternum cookware line is free of PFOA, free of PTFE and free of Cadmium. The interior features a new “nano-ceramic” coating which is a water-based coating made of titanium and suspended silicate micro-particles (the main component of glass); one of the purest and most ecological materials in nature. This material resists scratches, abrasions and offers a smooth, compact and uniform surface that makes it easier to clean. The white color provides a unique and extraordinary cooking experience.  The base provides excellent thermal conductivity and guarantees optimum heat distribution resulting in less energy required to maintain desired cooking temperature. The also scratch resistant hi-temp silicone exterior makes this cookware easy to clean.

As embarrassing as it sounds, I have an issue cooking pancakes.  They almost always come out too dark on the outside and too soft on the inside.  After seeing the nanoceramic nonstick coating, I started to wonder if my dark coated pans were the problem.  So, I quickly whipped up a batch of pancake mix and started flippin’!  When Bialetti says “nonstick coating,” they really mean it.  There was no need to grease the pan, the pancakes literally slid right off and onto the plate.  The outside of the pancake was light and a bit crispy and the inside was perfect.  Incredible!  My daughter told me that it tasted just like IHOP which is the highest honor in my home!

To try something a bit stickier and put the pan to the test, I also made a crunchy taco dinner in the large saute pan.  This dish requires rice, ground meat, taco mix and lots of cheese which simmers covered for quite some time.  In my old pans, this dish requires some hefty clean up.  But in the Aeternum pan, the dish was not only incredibly yummy, but very easy to clean up.  After a simple rinse, the pan looked clean already.  But the best part was being able to place the pans directly in the dishwasher.

These saute pans are available in 8″, 10.25″ and 12″ sizes which range from $19.95 to $39.95.
