Bialetti Aeternum is one of the best – selling collections of Bialetti in the cooking ware department. Simply put, this specific line features all-ceramic pieces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
The Bialetti Aeternum 10-piece cookware set is being marketed to both families and individuals who want to level up their kitchen articles without going too professional. In this Bialetti Aeternum Review, we will talk more about the manufacturer and the cooking wares themselves.
Bialetti Cookware – Functional and Stylish
When you think of the word Bialetti, cooking won’t be the first thing that would pop to your mind. Instead, it would be coffee. This is assuming you even know the term Bialetti. Bialetti is from Alfonso Bialetti, an Italian engineer. He founded the company Bialetti in 1919. He designed an iconic coffee maker which pushed him and his company to the forefront of the coffee world.
The Bialetti company did not only dabble in coffee making. Instead, it spread its proverbial net to also make baking ware, cooking ware, and other kitchen supplies and accessories. Focusing on their cooking ware, the company mentions that they have been producing and developing cooking ware for almost a century already.
Aside from the Moka Express coffee maker, the company is also known for the Bialetti pans which are functional and stylish. All their pieces have a uniting theme in them that they all look good to the eyes while being simple. They pride themselves that in Italy, nine households out of ten have pieces made by Bialetti in their homes and kitchens. Another example of a kitchen piece is the Bialetti skillet.
Bialetti Aeternum Cooking Ware – A Successful Cookware Line
With Bialetti pans being kitchen staples worldwide, the company has invested in research and development. They now research and develop new pieces that incorporate the latest cooking technology for superior products and results in cooking. One successful line produced is the Bialetti Aeternum line.
The Aeternum cookware features the latest cooking ware technology. These are the Bialetti ceramic pans and Bialetti non-stick pans. These specific cooking ware pieces are also eco – friendly, with all of them being PFOA-free and PTFE-free.
All the Bialetti pans in the Bialetti Aeternum line have a ceramic surface. The ceramic coating, they have been applied at a low temperature, so the emissions of carbon dioxide are minimized. They were also made to be ceramic so the surfaces would be non – stick while cooking and the food would cook nice. Also, their ceramic surface makes it easier for us to clean the said pans.
The Bialetti pans feature three layers in all pieces. The first layer is silicone that can withstand very high temperatures. Aluminum is the component of the second layer. Finally, they have the non – stick ceramic coating as the third layer. For the looks, all pans look simple but elegant in a solid red outer color and a white inner color. The red looks stylish and puts the whole collection together.
Even the lids have red accents.
The surface of all the pans feature the color white, making them all look clean. This would also help you while you are cooking your food so everything would be neat. Aesthetically, you can even use the pans as the dish holders themselves because they make good style statements when you present them on the dining table.
For the technicalities and construction of all the pieces in the Bialetti Aeternum collection, the material used was aluminum that is heavily gauged. The Bialetti company made sure the handles of the pans were soft-touch and heat resistant. The warranty of the set is for 5 years.
Unfortunately, these pieces can also be delicate. They are not oven – safe and can only be used on conventional stove tops. However, these pieces also can’t be used in induction stove tops. These are not safe to use in the oven either. They can only be washed using hand wash to preserve the ceramic coating. It is recommended to use warm soapy water when washing the pieces.
Aside from selling from their shop, they also advertise the Bialetti Aeternum cooking ware pieces in online shopping websites.
Now, let’s talk about the main attraction of this review – the Bialetti Aeternum 10-piece cookware set. The whole collection is made out of aluminum. First, we’ll discuss its appearance. All the pieces feature a red outer color and a white surface.
The accent color used is the solid red, also dubbed as Aeternum red. This red is also used in the glass lids included in the set. There are also some bits of silver seen on the pieces. Personally, I like how the pieces look together and individually. Like I said earlier in the article, they are aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. They stand out from other common pots and pans that are silver and gray.
With their white surfaces, they look clean and it would be easier to observe the food when it is on a white surface. The only disadvantage would be if there would be chips because it would be more obvious compared to chips on standard pots and pans.
This cooking set features two sauté pans or Bialetti frying pans that are 8 inches and more than 10 inches in diameter. There are two sauce pans that have 2 quarts and 2 and a half quarts in capacity. There is a Dutch oven with 5 quarts in capacity. Lastly, there is a deep Bialetti sauté pan that is 11 inches. This cooking set also has a bonus of three glass lid covers, ideally for the two sauce pans and the one deep sauté pan.
The whole set weighs in at 20.6 pounds.
All the pieces are made of aluminized steel that is heavy gauge in construction. This is for durability. Because the red outer coating is non-stick, the company says you can use these pots and pans straight from the stove top to the table.
The company also says the white interior is ceramic and is for better browning and easy release. The whole collection is earth-friendly and is PTFE, Cadmium, and PFOA-free. This means that chemicals from the pan won’t be absorbed into the food.
The non-stick coating that is used for the inner coating makes it easier for the pots and pans to be cleaned. All the users have said that the pans are really non-stick and cooking using this collection has been so easy, because they stay true to their word unlike most other non-stick pans.
One downside is that the rims of the pots and pans do not flare out. This makes it harder to pour the food and even liquids into other containers. Another is that even though the company is based in Italy, the pots and pans are made in China.
Moving on to the handles. The pieces come with handles that are described to be cool and phenolic. This is so the users can be more comfortable while holding the pots and pans. It would be easier to use them because they stay cool while cooking.
Moving on to the lids. The pieces include three glass lids. Of course, these glass lids trap all the moisture and nutrients inside the pots and pans. None would escape and so food would turn out more flavorful. The lids also help cook the food evenly all around.
