sets or pieces?
Cookware sets are by far the greatest
value, but before you grab your set, make
sure the pieces have a variety of functions.
Do a quick inventory of your present cookware.
the right material
Materials matter when it comes to
cookware because no single metal is
ideal for all cooking. Consider what you
cook the most and choose accordingly.
Also consider durability, as certain materials
may be more expensive up front, but will last
longer in the end.
shapes & sizes
Cooking is easier and more fun when you have the right tools. Again, consider what you cook the most and choose accordingly. Shape and proportions make all the difference.
To ensure a particular cookware piece can work
on an induction cooktop, perform the magnet
test. Simply hold a magnet to the bottom of the
pan, and if the magnet sticks, you can use the pan on that type of cooktop.
