Three steel mixing bowls with plastic lids are also included in 3/4, 1 1/4, and 1 3/4 quart sizes. Your letter states that the cookware has an enamel painted exterior, a non- stick interior, and is available in black, green or blue. It is the opinion of this office that your product is a set, with the essential character imparted by the pans and dutch oven.
