GraniteStone Blue: Durability and Performance – Our Honest Review

I never thought I’d be the type of person to sit down and write such a passionate, long-winded product review — but when it comes to GraniteStone Blue cookware, I feel compelled to share my experience.

This cookware has made cooking for my family of seven SO much easier and more enjoyable. Cleanup is easier, the food cooks better, and, best of all, I didn’t have to drain my bank account to stock up on a full set of pots and pans. This cookware line is EVERYTHING I was looking for, and I didn’t even realize existed until recently. So, I have to get on here and spread the word about why these products are absolutely worth their money.

My Cooking Journey

A little background about me: I’m a mom of five, and while I definitely cook a lot, I wouldn’t describe myself as a chef. I’ve never cooked professionally, I’m just a mom who needs to feed a large family and herself without spending the entire day in the kitchen.

I’ve also been relying on the assorted pots and pans my husband and I have accumulated throughout the years to get the job done until our twins were born last year, and I realized that we definitely needed to level up.

Once I realized we needed a better set of cookware, the search began. I wanted something high quality, nonstick, and within our budget. Unfortunately, I couldn’t seem to find a line of cookware that checked more than one or two of these boxes.

Budget was the biggest constraint. That is, until I was folding laundry in front of the TV one day and saw an ad for GraniteStone Blue. I’m not one to usually buy from TV commercials, but at this point, I just wanted to have a decent set of pots and pans. Magically, everything seemed to be right within my budget. I ordered a skillet and a stock pot to start, and I haven’t looked back since.

Quality, Quality, Quality

Right off the bat, I was impressed with the quality. I don’t know what “GraniteStone” is actually made of, but whatever it is doesn’t scratch, distributes heat well, and feels lightweight.

Believe me, I’ve thoroughly tested out just every one of these qualities. I now have a ten-year-old and a nine-year-old, and they’re both beginning to learn how to cook.

I can’t tell you how many times they’ve tried to mix a sauce or flip something in the pan using a stainless steel fork. I tell them over and over not to use silverware on our pots and pans, but the lesson just doesn’t seem to stick. With my Granitestone set, I don’t have to worry about this anymore — nothing seems to scratch the surface, and it’s been such a relief!

If You Can’t Stand the Heat … 

I also noticed right away how well these products conduct heat. When you’re frying something in a saucepan, you want the heat to distribute evenly throughout the pan so that it doesn’t over or undercook on any one side.

A lot of the time, cookware will heat up really well in the middle of the pan where the flame is but less so on the edges. Then, it’s easy to end up with runny eggs, burnt sauce, and other kitchen disasters. I make a lot of scrambled eggs — it’s a quick, nutritious, and easy breakfast in my house — so, I noticed right away that that uneven cooking didn’t seem to be a problem once I started using GraniteStone pans.

Cooking’s Never Been Easier!

The third, and possibly best, feature of these pots and pans is how convenient they are to use. Working parents or busy professionals reading this, listen up: If you cook for yourself at all, even just a couple times a week, you need this cookware in your life.

For one thing, it’s all nonstick, which is a huge selling point to me. Sometimes, you’ll buy a “nonstick” pan that’s sort of easy to clean up but also doesn’t really get the job done. That’s not the case with these pots and pans. I’ve watched the stickiest messes just slide right off with a little bit of hot water.

When you’re busy or have a lot of people to feed, that makes a huge difference in the flow of your morning and the overall amount of work on your shoulders. All of the GraniteStone Blue cookware is dishwasher-safe (another HUGE win for those of us who are often crunched for time) and oven-safe up to 500 degrees, which is pretty much as hot as you’d ever want your oven to go.

Although I normally use baking sheets and pans for the oven, it’s nice to know that I could throw my GraniteStone cookware in there, too, if needed.

The Price Is Right

These pots and pans are not only durable, nonstick, and dishwasher and oven-safe – they’re also affordable. As I mentioned earlier, I initially bought a skillet and a stock pot to test out the quality of the brand.

Once I saw the results with my own eyes, I invested in a full set: the 20-piece Pro Cookware Set. This set came with virtually anything I’d ever need to cook for my big family: skillets and fry pans of various sizes, stock pots, saute pots, and everything with matching lids. Plus, at the time that I bought my set (and I’m not sure if they’re still doing this, so definitely check it out before taking my word on this), I also got a free five-piece baking set and a grill basket along with my pro set.

Again, that’s everything I could possibly need as an amateur chef, all up to the incredible standard of quality of the first few items I bought from them.

Wrapping Up My Granitestone Blue Review

If you’re still a bit uncertain (and if you are, I get it; I’m not usually one to just buy things on the recommendations of a stranger), I’d definitely recommend investing in one or two pieces first, seeing how you like them, and then committing to more from there. That’s what I did, and I ended up absolutely loving what I bought.

Plus, they have a great money-back guarantee and a ten-year warranty, so whatever you end up buying, you’ll either be able to return for your money back or have a high-quality cookware item for at least ten years. No harm, no foul, as far as I’m concerned.

I think I’ve mentioned this a couple of times now, but I really can’t stress it enough: It’s not often you see quality, durability, and price go hand-in-hand the way I’ve experienced GraniteStone cookware so far. Usually, you have to sacrifice at least one aspect of the product.

For example, cast iron pans are really good at conducting and storing heat, but they tend to be expensive, and cleanup is a total nightmare. On the other hand, a lot of the nonstick stuff on the market right now just isn’t good enough quality to resist scratching or uneven heating.

GraniteStone was the only brand I could find that not only promised to merge all three traits but actually did it successfully. That’s why I’m so passionate about these products, even though I’ve only been using them for about six months now.

If I had to guess, it won’t be long until you’re just as obsessed as I am.
