My Favorite Cookware: Bialette Aeternum Collection

Screen Shot 2012 02 27 at 11.04.48 AMI love to cook. As such, I need amazing cookware. Somehow I’ve always had a certain expensive brand stuck in my head – and I’ve always saved my pennies to buy the brand…regardless of price. I’ve never even considered other brands when it came to cookware, until I was given the opportunity to try Bialette Cookware.

Screen Shot 2012 02 27 at 12.25.52 AMWhile they have a few different cookware options, it was love at first sight with the Aeternum Collection. And to be perfectly honest with you, I was so enthralled with the beautiful red coloring (it goes beautifully in my white beachy kitchen) that I didn’t pay much attention to the fact that it was eco-friendly as well.

The white, nano-ceramic coating is AHH-MA-ZING! Not only do I LOVE being able to clearly SEE if the pan is clean or not (don’t you guys find it hard to tell on those dark gray surfaces too?), but you can actually use very little to no oil in these giving them a HUGE health benefit to other cookware. They heat up nicely and provide even heat distribution.

The skillet and sauce pan I was sent to try out has easily out performed anything I have ever cooked with EVER. In my entire life. I seriously want to replace my THOUSANDS of dollars worth of pots and pans for THESE instead.

Because you really need to try them for yourself to see why I’m ranting and raving so much about them, I wanted to do the ultimate test in non-stick surfaces…scrambled eggs. Let me show you in pictures what happened…

  1. 2012 02 27 18 28 23That’s right folks. I am scrambling up 4 eggs with NO butter, oil or spray whatsover.
  2. Perfect non-greasy eggs with very very little sticking. My mouth is practically on the floor at this point.
  3. There is minor residue after pouring the eggs onto a plate.
  4. I simply ran the pan under the faucet for about 15 seconds. I swear it didn’t touch it with anything and it is SPOTLESS.

I have since used this same saute pan to cook everything from stir-fry to pasta sauce to sausage – and I continue to fall more and more in love with it with each use.

I know you guys don’t know me from that crazy lady using coupons at the store (ahem…), but I promise you I am one of the most picky people I know when it comes to cookware. Aside from what I’ve mentioned above, I also really love the affordability of this collection as well.

The Aeternum cookware line is available in 8”, 10” and 12” sauté pans, a 2-quart saucepan with glass lid and a 12” deep sauté pan with glass lid. Purchase online at Bialettishop.com and Amazon.com with a suggested retail price of $19.99 – $69.99.

For more information on Bialetti USA, you can find them on Facebook.

Thank you to Bialetti for sending me the above product to review and making my cooking healthier and cleaning of said cooking a no fuss event. I love you.

  1. Using a mix of T Fal and some other cheap set but I don’t care for them and need to be thrown out.
    I love that the clean up is easy with the Bialette Cookware!

  2. I’m currently using my 20+ year old Farbarware with random ‘non-stick’ pieces. I love the idea of the white inside and the idea of using less oil.

    Reply
  3. I currently use Calphalon stainless steel pots and pans. They require alot of oil because they are not non-stick and it is so easy to burn things on them. I love the fact that these pots and pans are white inside and that it will be easy to see if they are clean or not. Also I like the fact that very little oil is needed…

  4. I currently own Command Performance Gold. I think the Bialette would be so much better because I could use less oil when cooking and so much better for me because of the quick and easy cleanup. After reading your review I would love to try these pans. Never heard of them until this post.

  5. I have several different kinds, like T-Fal, etc.
    I would love to try this brand of cookware, because of the health benefits of using little to no oil or butter.

  6. I agree with you when it comes to the red color…As for the brand of pans I use, I have no idea, they belonged to my mother before she passed.
    Having a pan I could jus wipe free and cook with no oil, butter or grease would be alot healthier for my family and less hassle when it came time or clean up… If it is that easy maybe my husband would offer to do the dishes..Here’s hoping.

  7. I use some cast iron pans, but don’t know the brand name. I think the Bialetti Aeternum Collection is better because it doesn’t stick at all and I love the red color of it too.

  8. I current own a mix up of the cheap walmart brand cookware and hand me downs from family. I like best that the pans have the white coating so I could know they are clean – that is so huge compared to the black flakey cheap coatings I sometimes get where I can’t tell ifs it burned food or pan that Im cleaning off!

  9. I have hand me down pots and pans… these pans look amazing i love that they are white and i could tell how clean they really are

  10. I use calphalon. I really like (for my OCD, LOL) that these pans are white on the inside. I feel like it will make it easier to clean them.

  11. So I am currently using T-fal and other random pans and I hate how they are peeling and flaking! I’m so afraid its going to make my family sick! And they stick too! The Bialette Aeternum look so stylish and so easy to clean from your review! I love it!!! where do you find them?

  12. I currently own nonstick pans but I feel like I still need cooking spray, I would love to own these and never use cooking spray again.

    Reply
  13. OH goodness….what brand do I own right now? No clue! They are a mixed assortment from a bunch of cheap companies! Most of my pans the coating is coming off…..always makes wonder if they are still safe? I think one is an old regal one…..just old and not in good shape. As for why I would love these instead of mine…one is safety. I cant believe you were able to cook your eggs without oil?? How cool is that! I have to use lots of spray on mine!!!!! Would love this set!

  14. i use whatever. as in hand me downs and walmart fill ins-not by choice, just by budget. this would be put to goooood use. thanks for the chance!

  15. I have pans bought from a local store that are falling apart and the coating is coming off. I am looking for a deal but would love to try these pans!!! We are darting healthy and these pans would help because they wouldn’t burn my chicken from being uneven

  16. Not sure of the name, they’re Fred Meyer cheap-o brand. I’d love to win one of these pans, I know they work great because I bought one for my step son for Christmas and he was bragging about them :)

  17. I have a mixed up collection of cookware and really need to get a new set. I love that you don’t have to add oil to these, with mine I do. I like that they are eco friendly

  18. Sorry I hit enter before I put that I think the Bialetti Collection would be better then my modge podge because mine is so old the handles are loose and the non-stick is GONE! :(

    Reply
  19. I currently have a set of Circulon, but they are difficult to clean because of the circular pattern. It seems food gets stuck in the grooves causing food to stick. The come with a lifetime warranty, but I would have to pay to ship them back. The Bialette brand looks super easy to clean, so that would definitely make it better than what I’m currently using.

    Reply
  20. My pots and pans are a modge podge of different brands and to be honest with you they are so old I can’t even remember when I bought them!

    Reply
  21. We don’t currently have a specific brand that we use. We usually just buy the one that we can afford. They are mostly from Walmart and pans that were given to us for our wedding almost 6 years ago. Many of them are scratched. I would love to try the Bialetti collection. I love the easy clean up and that it’s economically friendly!!

    Reply
  22. I use Cuisinart Green(not sure of the exact name) non-stick. I like it but it has scratched somehow and now everything sticks!!! I would love to see if it is clean, love the white!

    Reply
  23. All my pots and pans are mismatched! Some is T-fal, which is a good brand but I’ve had them for years and the teflon is flaking. Other pots and pans I have I’m not sure about the brand, they were cheap purchases or hand-me-downs.

    I absolutely love these pans because they look like nothing sticks to them! Our current pans have teflon but they don’t work at not sticking, I have to use gobs of cooking spray each time!

    Reply
  24. OMG!!! I am so loving this review and must have these NOW! I currently have Rachael Ray pots. At first I loved them! But after two years they are flaking and I hate it! I’ve went to use them and realize that food is still stuck in it even after a good cleaning! I love that this is eco-friendly and I love love love the white color so I can SEE that it’s clean! I love that you didn’t have to use butter or spray when cooking eggs and I loved even more than it just comes right out of the pan! I so want these!!!

    Reply
  25. I am using T-Fal that is about 14 years old. What I like better about the Bialette Aeternum is that it is new and that it will be free from scratches.

  26. I currently have a mix of different cheap pots and pans that were my mom’s. So I would love to have a brand new set of my own! Mine are so old and worn out from YEARS of use it would be nice to have ones that work well!

    Reply
  27. I use Cuisinart anodized non-stick cookware but I still worry about aluminum potentially coming through into the food some day….this ceramic set looks interesting? No butter? Might be worth a try…I use very little now but it does scratch easily…

    Reply
  28. We use my mom’s Farberware that she brought when she moved in with us. I am quite unhappy with it as everything seems to stick to it. I think this set would be better than the Farberware as it looks like the ceramic coating doesn’t let things stick. It looks so clean!!!

    Reply
  29. I currently use cuisinart – i bought them from bed bath and beyond. However, it would be SO nice to use these and KNOW for sure that they are clean. I always have to use barkeepers friend on mine to scrub off all the marks, these look like i wouldn’t have to do that!

  30. I have the Bialetti stainless steel set, and I really don’t like them. The bottom of the pans burned easily. Everything seems to stick to them. The bottom of the pots are all discolored. We bought this set in 2007 after we got married. I have been looking into getting a new set. I have been hearing and reading alot of good things about the ceramic. I read your review and so far sounds alot better than the stainless steel. I would love to try them. Thanks for the chance :-)

  31. I currently use Cuisinart Stainless Steel cookware. It wouldn’t ever be able to be used without some type of oil or butter. Yikes. I’m loving that this is eco-friendly too!

    Reply
  32. I don’t even know the brand of pots I have….all I know is that I am ready for a new set.
    The bialetti collection doesn’t have the film that comes out of the bottom…doesn’t stick and cleans easily.

  33. I have tfal & just other parts & pieces, I could really use some new pots/pans.
    I like that you don’t have to use hardly any oil, as we get older we realize that we need to eat healthier.

  34. I have a mix mash of pans, would luv having a awesome set like this, sound easy to cook with & even better to cleanup….

  35. I have a mixed up collection. They are Paula Dean, T-fal, and Faberware. I cook up to three meals on a daily basis for two children. I would like just for once to have a set of cookware that is the same brand.. I have heard loads of great comments; good on the environment, non-stick, and last. I love the colors.. I also want a brand that I can trust. I would like to opportunity to try Bialette Aeternum, a quality brand.

  36. use very little to no oil in these giving them a HUGE health benefit to other cookware. They heat up nicely and provide even heat distribution. that has won me over already – I have used Caphalon for years and have a set that I have had forever.

  37. Most of my pots and pans are tfal. the bialetti collection is great I do have the pasta pot the quality is very good, the colors are fun too.

  38. I am not even sure what brand I currently use. I have never owned new pots and pans! I will just be happy to have something new. I especially need fry pans. I really need some new non-stick ones!

  39. I am currently using a variety of hand-down cookware that different family members gave to me when my husband and I moved into a place of our own. The Bialetti Aeternum cookware is definately better than the cookware I have. What I have now is bowing up in the center and doesn’t cook evenly. Also, the non-stick coating is scrapping off of all of my cookware.

  40. I am a mother of three children and have pots and pans that are odds and ends. I would love to win a matching set. And this cookware seems to be ideal for me since I am always in a hurry. I caan not stand how food sticks in my old cookware but deal with it because my money is needed elsewhere : “Mom, I need new shoes.” “Mom, I need new jeans the old ones are to short.” “Mom, I need new shirts.” It’s a never ending cycle of “Mom , I needs” with three growing children. I must say I am blessed that my children know the difference between want and need. With that said I really need new cookware and this set will help me provide healthier meals quicker for my family. Thank you for this chance.

  41. I have a mix of old given to me and old T-Fal that I received as a wedding gift(17 years ago this April).So I could really use a new real set!
    i like the fact that is white on the inside,seeing you got the cleaning done is a plus.But I also live the easy clean non stick life so lots and lots of Bonus’s.

  42. I like that these pans are eco friendly and the fact that you don’t need to use butter. I had never heard of this brand. My husband had recently mentioned the orgreenic brand to me but unfortunately they are way beyond our budget. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma last year. I currently have some Farberware pans that are red and are starting to peel on the inside which I know isn’t good. I have 3 kids and I am really beginning to analyze the stuff we use.

  43. This cookware sounds AMAZING! I currently own the expensive Pampered Chef set that was purchased for me about 9 years ago. I LOVE that this set needs no oil, butter, etc. and it will not stick. I have a sticky mess all the time in my current skillets. Thank you so much for sharing this with us all!

  44. I currently use Cooks from QVC and have been for 7 years and they are WORE OUT! The non-stick is worn off. I would love to have these because they are white and nano-cermaic. Need to have new pans and these look wonderful! Tired the same pans scratching. MY grilled cheese sandwiches are sticking now! That is sad! These would make me Soooo happy!

  45. I just bought my first pair of cookware from Rachel Ray. So far so good but they were very expensive! I would love to try these out, being a stay at home mom, I cook a lot! I love the white inside!! Thank you for the chance.

  46. I currently use T-Fal. The Aeternum collection looks great with the white coating on the inside and still being non stick. The fact they will not flake off like the other pans into my food would be a Blessing to my families health.

  47. I currently use random pieces of cookware. Nothing matches, all is old and hand-me downs. Anything is better than what I have but this cookware looks amazing :)

  48. Oh – these are beautiful! And I love the non-stick surfaces. I’m still using some hand-me-downs from my Momma, and just told my husband I HAVE to get a new non-stick frying pan since all my “non-stick” stuff is gone! Would love to win this one.

    Reply
  49. I currently use Caphalon (sp?) and I dislike that the nonstick coating is flaking off. It has taken longer to do so than other cheap brands I’ve owned but it’s still happening….I also use some that are stainless steel (not sure of brand, I remember they were cheap on clearance somewhere) and I like those for lots of things but I HAVE to have nonstick to cook eggs lol! I like that these are white on the inside so I can see if the pan is clean, and from what I’ve heard, they will not scratch and flake like the teflon will. That makes me happy!

  50. I currently own T-Fal brand. I think I would like Bialette Aeternum better because of the nano-ceramic coating. I would love to own cookware without the use of oil or butter to prevent sticking unlike the T-Fal cookware I own. Looks like a great technology.

  51. I am cookware needy ;) After being married for 12 years my selection is still made up of all the odds and ends pots and pans my mother and grandmother cleaned out of their kitchens when we got our first house. To cook on the Bialetti Collection would be like heaven ;)

    Reply
  52. I currently use T-Fal and the non-stick coating comes off no matter how carefully I treat it. I like that this is naurally non-stick and I don’t have to worry about any finish wearing away (or potentially getting into the food that I cook).

    Reply
  53. The brand cookware I currently use was given to me by different people & I do not know what brand they all are and one thing about the Bialetti Aeternum Collection that I really think is better than what I currently own is you can actually use very little to no oil in these giving them a HUGE health benefit to the cook wear I own,which is so good to cut down on calories & good for my families health

  54. I currently use a mixture of different brands of cookware. I would love to see what real cookware is like to use. Especially the non stick part. My non stick pans are not non stick anymore. Thank you for the opportunity to win!!!

  55. I currently use Hamilton Beach cook wear, i have to use spray, I wish i didnt! The pots are only a month old and have scratches, Ceramic coating is WAY better!!!! It takes forever to clean my pans, this stuff is WAY better coming clean like that with just water! I love the white! I hate thinking a pot is clean then going to use it again and noticing something i missed with that dark grey surface. I would LOVE to upgrade to these pans!!!

  56. I currently have random pieces of cookware, it would be amazing to have something that allows for healthy cooking along with being a high quality. It is also very frustrating to have cookware that never seems clean, the Bialette set would be an amazing change from what I currently use.

  57. I am currently using Caphalon non-stick pans which are PEELING. Not goid, since I’m very afraid they are toxic. I would really love to have these enamel pans to cook with for my kids. Thank you for the chance!

  58. Wow! The picture demo looks pretty amazing. I currently use a mixed matched brand of pots and pan from my colleges years :( what I love best about the Aeternum cookware is the seriously non sticking pans!

  59. I currently use Paula Dean pans. I like these so much better because they are nano-cermaic and not the dark gray. It would be so much easier to clean these!

  60. I currently own Paula Deen non-stick cookware….90% of my cooking is done in my cast iron skillets. I would love to see if my skillets are really clean.
