Product Review: MEYER Purple 2 Piece Set Cookware

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

     I presume that you already know that I don't cook. If you're following me on Instagram, there's a hashtag #kathinthekitchen but it's really the hubby who is cooking in the kitchen. My husband is the king of our kitchen and I'm proud of that but when it comes to buying kitchen essentials, I'm the queen :) I'm the one who decides what to buy especially with cookware.

     Months ago, we decided to renovate our kitchen to the theme that we really like. New kitchen means new kitchen essentials. First up, cookware. It's hard to decide what brand to buy because there's literally a lot but when it comes to trusted brands, there's only a handful and one of them is MEYER. Look like the heavens have heard what I needed and MEYER Cookware Philippines sent the MEYER Purple 2 Piece Set Cookware for us to try. Sharing my thoughts on this cookware set after the jump.

     It comes with a see-through glass lid that makes easy viewing of sauce while cooking. The black coating is one of the features that make cooking all types of sauces easy. The non-stick coating will prevent thick and oily sauces from burning.

     The MEYER Purple Stir fry pan with lid, on the other hand, is our favorite. We've abused used it for the nth time now to cook our lunch and dinner.

     The size of this saucepan is 28cm around 11in in diameter. We've cooked a lot of dishes using this pan- from stir fry beef with spinach, to pork steak, to frying our boneless milkfish, and the latest is the pork and tofu with tomato sauce.

     Since I consider a cookware an essential thing in the kitchen, it is an investment too. You use it every day to cook your meals that's why a durable cookware from a trusted brand is what you need to survive wear and tear. For both cookware, I noticed that the handles are sturdy and come with an easy to handle grip. I have small hands and holding the stir-fry pan doesn't give too much strain on my arm even if it's loaded.

     The design of the lid's handle is not the usual handle shapes like circular or rectangular. An ergonomic type to be exact. It's a solid square similar to the diamond's square emerald shape. Since it's not a big circle or rectangle, holding the lid is easy too. The rivets are very sturdy! I can attest to this because we've compared MEYER'S handle to other brands. Brand x seems to loose easily.

     I have a regular non-stick pan at home to compare MEYER'S features. The screw that was used on the lid and the handle are totally different from the regular ones. I'm not an expert on this but after many uses, the water doesn't stay inside that screw part with MEYER while on brand x, the water is trapped inside that screw part.

    What also amazes me is the outside of the pans (base part), it's multifunction because it can be used for halogen, and gas stove. It doesn't change its color easily unlike other pans where after cooking where you'll notice a brown or blackish burnt like color.

What I like:
  • MEYER Cookware, in general, is available in almost all department stores nationwide.
  • The price is cost-effective.
  • I find this cookware Instagrammable and perfect for the newly renovated kitchen with themes. You can mix and match the color of the pans from MEYER Cookware. Different colors are available.
  • MEYER Purple Set is what we need at home since we cook food viands with sauces. 
  • It's easy to use and clean.
  • No need to buy for a separate lid. 
  • The easy view cooking glass lids make cooking a breeze. My husband who cooks our meals doesn't have a hard time viewing the food inside the pan.
  • The rivets are sturdy. 
  • I so love the color purple period.
  • Can be used for halogen, and gas stovetops. 
  • PFAO free, non-stick for healthy cooking. 

What I don't like:
  • None so far!

Will I repurchase? Yes, looking forward to having a frying pan from the Brown Sugar line and other cookware essentials from Anolon and Prestige (these are from MEYER Cookware too).

Recommendation:
     I give MEYER Purple 2 Piece Set Cookware a 4.75/5 rating. I highly recommend everyone to invest in cookware since these kitchen essentials are used every day. Imagine this, if you buy a so-so or low-quality cookware, the handles may loosen after few uses or the Teflon will lose it's function and will eventually lose its non-stick capabilities. The aftermath, you'll buy another cookware and will double or triple your expenses.

     On the other hand, when you purchase from a trusted brand like MEYER, you're sure of the quality. No hassles and cooking will always be enjoyable and fuss-free.
