Anyone heard of Barazzoni cookware?
I just picked up a Barazzoni braiser/casserole 4 qt I think) at TJ-Maxx because it appears to be very good quality and I needed one. Before I use it, I want to know if anyone is familiar with the product.
Supposedly it lists at $160. I paid $80. It is heavy stainless with a thick clad aluminum bottom disk around 5 or 6mm. Lid is tight fitting and of same guage as the pan. It has substantial cast and riveted handles. It looks great too!
I looked at their website but there is very little info and what info there is in in Italian. Can't find anything with Google either other than some Tramontina made by Barazzoni which is not what I have.
I have had a set for about 11 years.mine are made in italy and have a weighted bottom and say "induction"??they are great in every way!they still look new even though they get used all the time..I'm not sure if they are all made in Italy or all made the same way though..Hope this helps..
The English version of Barazzoni's web site is here: http://www.barazzoni.it/en/defaultEN.htm
The pots I bought at TJ Maxx were Barazzoni's "La Fenice" line. Look at the pics and see which one you have, then click on them to get to the pdf's. They are a gift for my wife, so I don't yet have any experience with their performance - but the quality is obviously good. There appears to be variations in quality, construction and expense with each of their various stainless steel cookware lines, but not much info on what those variations are.
