T Fal Ceramic Cookware Reviews – An Unbiased Review [2020]

T Fal is the first brand in the world to introduce the technology of nonstick coating. 

About 66 years ago, Marc Grégoire in 1954 founded this company after following his wife’s advice. This creates a revolution in people’s lives as it makes cooking a lot easier.

They also invented the Thermo-Spot technology, which needs little to no oil, and also the pans are PFOA, Cadmium, and Lead-free.

So, today we are going to review the T Fal ceramic cookware range and also will compare the products to give you the final verdict.

There are three variants from initiatives. Basically, the build quality and sizes are the same but the only difference is the number of pots and pans provided. Some variants are providing more accessories while some are not.

Let us now review the T Fal Initiatives by size, weight, build quality, and price.

Size and Weight

We will now compare the size and weight of the three variants.

Products (Initiatives)SizeWeight
T Fal G919SE64 (14 Piece)22 x 13.9 x 9.2 inches12.12 Pounds
T Fal C921SG (16 Piece)22 x 14 x 10 inches11.54 Pounds
T Fal C728SE74 (14 Piece)22.99 x 15.43 x 9.53 inches17.34 Pounds

We have seen that the lighter one is the C921SG and the heavier is C728SE74. 

If we divide the total weight with the total number of items provided then we will get the weight of the individual items.

  • For G919SE64  – 12.12/14 is equal to 0.86 pounds.
  • For C921SG – 11.54/16 is equal to 0.72 pounds.
  • For C728SE74 – 17.34/14 is equal to 1.23 pounds.

Note: These are not the actual weight of the individual items. This is just an estimation, the actual weight may vary from items to items.

So, we have seen that the first two models are very light in weight and it will be easy to handle.

Now, we will check the quality of the cookware set.

Build Quality or Material

It is the most important factor for a cookware brand. Because the quality of the material will decide its longevity.

The T Fal Initiatives are built with heavy-gauge aluminum for proper and even heat distribution which is then coated with a ceramic to make it smooth, nonstick, and non-reactive.

These pots and pans are PFOA, PTFE, and Cadmium free which makes it healthy cookware to cook.

The coating of the pan is so smooth that nothing sticks to it. Also, the handles are designed ergonomically which makes it very comfortable to hold.

Features

  1. It has a Thermo-Spot technology which indicates the right temperature to begin cooking.
  2. The base is even which allows the heat to distribute evenly.

  4. The cookware is oven safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. The cookware is smooth and easy to cook.
  6. The cookware is compatible with all cooktops except induction.

These are the features and qualities that the company claims but I will write my opinion and review in the verdict section.

Now, let’s check the price.

Verdict For T Fal Initiatives – Is It Worth To Buy?

It provides almost all the necessary items along with accessories at an affordable price. So there is no complaint about its pricing.

The company claimed that the product is scratch-resistant and has superior build quality.

Yes there claim is right for the first few months but after some time, the pan started to get scratches. Also, I have read some reviews where people are claiming that there coating is wearing off after a year or so.

This case is true for the pans only but the saucepans are well and good. So, if you want a cheap and affordable option for ceramic cookware then you can go for this. But don’t expect durability.

As I have already told you that build quality is one of the important factors for a cookware brand. Because the quality of the material will always decide its construction and longevity.

The T Fal Chef is constructed with heavy-gauge aluminum for proper heat retention and even distribution of heat. Again the surface is then coated with a ceramic to make it smooth, nonstick, and non-reactive.

This cookware set surface is also free from toxic chemicals like PFOA, PTFE, and Cadmium which makes it healthy cookware to cook.

Price

Price is also an important factor when we are going to add any new pots and pans to our kitchen.

We can’t write the exact price of the product because Amazon changes its price frequently. But we can provide you the range of the product.

Let’s check the price range:

  • T-fal C991SE – 85$ to 115$

  4. Toxic-Free Surface
  5. Oven Safe
  6. Dishwasher Safe
  7. Affordable

Cons

  1. Handle gets hot during cooking.
  2. The cookware may burn if you cook in high heat.

Verdict For T Fal Chef – Is It Worth To Buy?

It almost provides all the necessary items along with accessories at an affordable price. But if we compare it with the previous variant then some pieces are missing. Then also we can’t complain about the price.

The build quality of the cookware is better than the previous one though both of them are built with almost the same materials.

The cookware is smooth and you will be glad to cook in this pan. But the handles of the pan gets hot quickly.

Also, if you cook it at a higher temperature then it may burn the coating and ultimately ruin the cookware.

So, at this price point, it is a good option for ceramic cookware but you may have to replace it after 2 years or so.

Final Verdict

Both the cookwares are affordable, stylish, and comes with almost all the necessary items. The size and weight of the variants are also similar and they are extremely lightweight and have a decent size.

The pans are also very smooth and easy to clean. For the first few months, you will not regret it because almost nothing sticks to it.

But both of them lack in one factor that is durability. Even if you use it with utmost care then it may last you for 2 to 3 years. So, the only disadvantage is durability.

So, if you are a kind of person who likes to change the cookware set yearly then these items are for you.
