How to Choose High-Quality Cookware


Your dishes are an important part of your life. They prepare the food that goes into the body of you and your family. It's a purchase that should be given careful consideration. A decent set of cookware is a major purchase. As with any other major purchase, there are steps you should follow to make sure you get a high-quality product.

  • Make sure it's heavy. A good set of cookware will have some weight to it. In fact, a really high-quality set will feel similar to pieces of cast iron cookware. This ensures that the pieces don't warp over time. It also ensures that your food cooks more evenly.

  • Look for even thickness in the sides and bottom. Cookware that has a bottom bonded to the pan isn't going to cook your foods evenly. Instead, look for pieces that include the handle(s) and the pan. The pan should be even on the bottom and sides. This ensures that your food cooks evenly and more quickly.

  • Go with stainless or hard anodized. If you want high-quality cookware, you cannot go wrong with these options. These options are not only beautiful, but some brands of stainless and hard anodized cookware are also restaurant quality.

  • Pick pieces that can go in the oven. High-quality cookware should allow for versatility in the kitchen. This means that you should be able to start the recipe on the stove top and then transfer it to the oven. This is a great feature if you love making thick steaks.

  • Choose scratch resistant pieces. Many people of course look for nonstick cookware, but what you really need to look for is scratch resistant cookware. This ensures that your nonstick coating doesn't end up in your eggs.

  • Read reviews. If you read reviews for every other major purchase you make, why not read reviews for cookware? When you take time to read reviews, you avoid buying cookware that ends up being a disappointment.

Tips & Warnings

  • When buying stainless cookware, look for 18/10 stainless.
  • Look for cookware with metal handles.
