Maxam KT17 Waterless Cookware Review. I have been using the Maxam KT17 17-Piece 9-Element Surgical-Stainless-Steel Waterless Cookware Set for a long time. The four saucepans, roaster and skillet have lasted throughout the years. Very durable stainless steel that can take a beating. I use this cookware all the time. My favorite part is the egg poacher rack with the egg cups. The poached eggs come out perfect in five minutes. The egg poacher sits nicely inside the main skillet. I put water at the bottom of the skillet and turn on to medium heat. Cover with the skillet lid and steam for 5 minutes. I also like the roaster because I can slow cook meats on the stovetop burner, instead of using a hot oven. I do not heat up my kitchen, which is great. I have enjoyed the saucepans so much because I love to steam cook veggies such as yellow squash and zucchini. The whistle sounds when its ready to turn off the heat and close the valve on the top. Easy clean up, too.
