Over 60 years of history of positive feedback and experience is behind this set, just the same as the original Maxam set of waterless cookware. That's because, even though this set was constructed without the steam-release valve, the same quality and specifications were used to construct this KT172 set as the very first Maxam set back in 1950. Each piece of the KT172 waterless cookware set is constructed of high quality, extra heavy gauge 304 surgical stainless steel and guaranteed to last a lifetime. The nine-metal construction includes chrome for longer life, iron for strength, and copper for durability. Copper is also bio-static, which means it doesn't allow bacteria to grow.

The surgical stainless steel construction of the Maxam set, just like all of our waterless sets, guarantees that the heat will be spread quickly and evenly.

You'll cook healthier with Maxam waterless cookware because it eliminates the need for both grease and oil in cooking. The Black Diamond handles are resistant to heat, cold, detergents, and are dish-washer safe. The entire set weighs 34 pounds.

Stack Cooking:
The surgical stainless steel construction allows Stack Cooking with this cookware. Begin cooking on individual burners, and when the valve whistles, you can stack the pans to finish cooking.

Steamer Insert
The steamer is designed exactly like the double boiler unit which is in the KT17 set. It fits the 3.2 quart pot, and has holes in the bottom to allow the steam into the steamer. It looks almost like a saucepan itself, with a long stay-cool handle just like the other pans.
This steamer insert is very simple to use: Just put a little water in the bottom of your 3.2 quart saucepan, place the insert (with your food inside) into the saucepan and put the lid on top of the steamer. Steam from the boiling water in the saucepan will rise through the vent holes in the steamer to steam cook your food. When your food is done, you use the steamer's long stay-cool handle to lift it out of the saucepan, shaking out excess water, and pour your vegetables onto a serving dish.

Handles:
The phenolic handles are superbly styled. They're resistant to heat, cold, and detergents, and have been tested for durability in ovens up to 350 degrees. However, the manufacturer does not recommend placing the pots in an oven as they were made to be used on a stove-top. After all, why would want to turn your oven on when you can bake your food in this cookware right on top of your stove? Each handle is molded with a very large eyelet that will permit hanging the utensils. For convenient storage simply invert the cover, place it in the proper pan and hang or stack your cookware.

  • 3.2 quart (3.02 liter) covered saucepan (4 1/8" high)
  • 7.5 quart (7.097 liter) roaster (5 5/8" high)
  • Large Skillet with Helper Handles and Cover (11" diameter)

  • Egg Poaching Rack with 5 Egg Cups


    WHY DOES THIS SET NOT HAVE A STEAM-RELEASE VALVE LIKE
    THE OTHER MAXAM SET WHICH COMES WITH THE STEAM RELEASE VALVE?


    Believe it or not, waterless cookware has been around for over 50 years, since the 1950s, and the biggest difference between those first sets and most of the sets around today are the knobs. In fact, that's the main difference between this set and our other Maxam set (and the reason it cost less). With the plain knobs you will never have to worry about a malfunction occurring with the mechanism of the inner workings of the knob because this set has neither a steam valve nor a thermostat inserted in the knob. All of our other sets have either a steam-release valve knob or a thermostat control knob. As we stated, the first waterless cookware sets made were made with plain knobs, and many of those sets, as well as the knobs are still around today. With this set, even the knobs last a lifetime.

    The instructions for cooking with a plain-knob set are very simple and very similar to the other sets. The instructions change only slightly when you reach the stage where you see or hear the steam being released from the steam valve, at that point, with this Maxam plain-knob set, you would see and hear the lid bouncing a little, and steam would be escaping from around the lid. This is your cue to turn the heat temperature down and began timing the cooking process.
    During the cooking process, to know if you are using the correct temperature and that the food inside the utensil is cooking correctly, the lid of the pot should spin freely during cooking. If the lid feels 'locked' onto the pot, then the temperature is too low. If the lid is 'bouncing' and steam is escaping from around the lid, then your temperature is too high.
    This set has the same high standard of perfection as the Maxam KT17 set, and the history behind the KT17 set also applies to this KT172 Maxam set.

    This set is suitable for ceramic, electric, and gas stoves.
    NOTE: The Handles are tested up to 350 degrees and can be used on a gas stove, but they should not be used with extremely high temperatures when using an open flame. An open flame on a gas stove may reach up to 608°F.


    The set includes a recipe book with instructions and a free online video on a private website. The private link will be sent to you when you place your order. Lifetime Warranty.
