A few years ago, I had purchased a non-stick frying pan of T-fal then amazed by its performance, I decided to get a set.

This T-fal E918sh Ultimate Hard Anodized 17 Piece Set is amazingly nonstick, at the same time, it’s also complete metal utensil safe.

It’s really a big deal, as most of the cookware manufacturers are threating you, for not to use metal utensil as the nonstick coating might be ripped off.

But exclusive part of T-fal cookware set is Thermo-Spot Technology, without using it you can’t fully understand its importance.

Thermo-Spot is a unique heat indicator that shows, your pan is perfectly preheated or not. And it’s the best feature I have ever got, “Smart Cookware” terminology really fits on it.

About The Manufacturer T-fal

It’s good to have some study before investing money, so I dig into its manufacturer’s past history.

1954, T-fal first invented the non-stick frying pan and the non-stick cookware lineup. It was a very successful debut. People loved the idea of easy cleaning cookware.

After a couple of years, T-fal has become the leading non-stick cookware company worldwide, still, it is in on of the top position.

And I find that T-fal E918SH Ultimate Hard Anodized Cookware Set one of the best selling cookware set of T-fal.
