Figuring out which cookware set will work best for you

Whether you’re a home cook or a professional chef, one of the best investments you can make for your kitchen is a cookware set. Cookware sets bundle a variety of cooking pots and pans into one purchase, saving you money and allowing you to experiment with different cookware pieces. When it comes to choosing the perfect cookware set, you should consider these factors:

  • Material: Cookware sets come in a variety of materials including stainless steel, non-stick, cast iron, hard anodised and cast aluminium. It is important to choose a material which compliments your cooking ability as this will ensure the longevity of your cookware set.

  • Type: Whether you need a complete kitchen cookware refresh or just a specialised two piece frypan set, you will want to consider the types of cookware pieces required as not every cookware set will work for every cook or kitchen.

  • Size: Depending on the size of your family you will want to consider the size of cookware pieces within a set as some are focused on smaller cooking tasks, whereas others are designed for larger families or those with greater cooking ability.

  • Space: Cookware sets can take up quite a lot of space within a kitchen, therefore, it is wise to consider how much space you have. Smaller kitchens will benefit from compact, space saving sets, such as the Wolstead Succinct range.

Common cookware materials

Cookware sets come in a variety of different materials which each offer different cooking benefits. The most common types of materials cookware sets come in include:

  • Non-stick: Non-stick cookware sets are a great option if you want to cook with less oils and fats as the cooking surface is coated with a non-stick layer which makes cooking delicate cooking foods like eggs or fish super easy and also assist with cleaning up as food won’t stick to the surface.

  • Stainless steel: Stainless steel cookware sets are non-reactive, non-toxic, lightweight and very durable. Stainless steel cookware is also dishwasher safe and oven safe.

  • Cast iron: Cast iron cookware sets provide even heat distribution and heat retention. Cast iron can be either enamelled or seasoned with both types being incredibly durable and designed to last a lifetime.

  • Cast aluminium: Cast aluminium cookware sets are lightweight, affordable and offer good heat retention.

  • Hard anodised: Hard anodised cookware sets are harder than stainless steel and are largely resistant to corrosion. Hard anodised are also non-reactive which is great when cooking acidic food.

What’s included in a cookware set?

Cookware sets come with a variety of pots and pans in different sizes. Saucepan or frypan sets contain one product in an assortment of sizes, whereas other cookware sets contain a range of different pieces for the kitchen, from frying pans, to saucepans, saute pans, stock pots, steamers and woks. Some common items you may find in a cookware set:

The difference between frying pans and sauté pans

There are a couple of differences between frying pans and sauté pans. Frying pans have a flat bottom base with sloped edges which makes it easier to stir ingredients when cooking. In comparison, a sauté pan has a larger surface area with high edges at a 90 degree angle. They are the ideal cooking pan when you need to sear meat or for cooking sauces, as the design of the pan means that liquids won’t spill over the edges.

Features to look out for when buying a new cookware set

Knowing these handy features before purchasing your new cookware set will help you understand how to use your cooking equipment and make it more convenient for cooking:

  • Glass lids to retain heat and flavour

  • Removable handles, to go from cooktop to oven to table

  • Non-stick coating to prevent food from sticking
