In terms of volume or size AMC deluxe set is winner as it contains saucepan of 6.5 quarts which is not present in other two brands.

SaladMaster is runner up with largest set of 8 Saucepans with largest saucepan of 5 Quarts.

LIFETIME cookware set is third position as it contains largest saucepan of 4 quarts size.

If you want to cook for larger group of people, AMC deluxe or SaladMaster cookware sets should be your choice.

Roaster comparison

If you are fond of roasted food like turkey, fish or even cow meat, SaladMaster should be your choice. The reason is that both AMC and LIFETIME cookware sets lack the roaster. The roaster is also ideal for making large volumes of meals including soups, stews and sea food. The roaster is also a perfect option for making noodles and pastas.

The SaladMaster roaster is also famous for its new vapor technology which ensures making of healthy meals without adding any extra oil or salts. In vapor cooking, food is cooked due to air tight lid in its own steam.

Although the LIFETIME cookware set, won’t contain a roaster but it has two dutch oven which are almost the same thing. You can perfectly make noodles, pastas, sea food, bread, chicken karahi or even roasting of any sort of meat.

Tea kettle/Knife/shears and steel mixing bowls

Although the SaladMaster is expensive but it beats AMC and LIFETIME cookware sets, in terms of variety of cooking ware equipment. The SaladMaster tea kettle is best value for your money as you won’t have to worry about any metals getting added into your food that become health hazard. Santoku knife is also missing in both the other cookware sets. This Santoku knife is very sharp with large blade and is considered ideal for cutting, slicing or mincing large pieces of meat.

The three hand mixers are also only present in SaladMaster cookware set. These mixing bowls are ideal for hand stirring of eggs or any thing else. You can also use them with electric hand mixers.

SaladMaster also include kitchen shears that are your best partner for cutting bread, removing vegetable leaves and for cutting of chilies or meat pieces very quickly.

Skillets

SaladMaster comes with 6 skillets with covers while LIFETIME comes with 2 skillets with covers. However AMC cooking set doesn’t come with a skillet. Two of the SaladMaster skillets have sloped sides. These are also called gourmet skillet and are considered ideal for sautéing mushrooms, flipping omelets, creating crêpes, frying fish, and even stir-frying.

Out of 6 skillets in the cookware set one skillet is electric oil core skillet which has builtin in timer as well as the heat control is removable which makes it work even when immersible in water.

Pudding Pans and Salad Bowls

Both pudding pans and salad bowls are part of SaladMaster cookware set but absent in AMC and LIFETIME cookware sets.

AMC Quick cooking lid

Salad Bowl and pudding Pan

Salad Master also comes with set of Salad bowls and a pudding pan and both of these items are missing in its competitors.

Double Boiler Inset

LIFETIME contains a double boiler inset that is used to melt chocolate or cook sauces. This inset can fit inside any of the saucepans. This boiler inset is missing in Saladmaster and AMC cookware sets.
