It can be challenging to choose the perfect cookware set — we know! That’s why we have made it simpler for you to choose, by offering only high-quality cookware sets. That way, regardless of the set you choose, you know that you’re going home with a great one! If you find yourself overwhelmed by the numerous choices that CopperSmith offers, don’t worry. This guide will help you find the perfect cookware set for your needs!
The very first step in choosing your newest cookware set is to figure out what kind of cookware set you’ll need. You may find that you need a 10-piece stainless steel cookware set or a 3 piece anodized cookware set. Whatever you choose, it’s important to consider your needs by asking yourself two very important questions:
How often do I cook?
What will I be cooking?
With the current shift toward more at-home activities, you might find yourself eating in more and experimenting with new recipes. If you want to create the best vodka sauce, you’re going to need a new saucepan. If you regularly throw dinner parties, then you’re going to need cookware that can easily hold multiple servings of whatever you want to serve.
That leads to the next question — what will you be cooking? Whether you have an old reliable pot or pan that you use for everything or you’re looking to improve your cookware collection, you need to plan according to your needs. Most cookware sets come with the basics including a frying pan, a sauce pan, a stock pot, and a sauté pan. However, some sets will come with even more pieces and include premium metal cookware pieces.
Start by making a detailed list of all the food that you can remember cooking in the last month and two of your favorite meals. You’ll need a set that includes all the pieces that were needed to create those foods. For example, if you had homemade mashed potatoes and seared pork chops, you’ll need a set that includes a frying pan and a stock pan.
Cooking is a delicate art and like any artist, you need the right tools to get the job done and done well. That’s why it’s vital to choose the right cookware material for your needs. Here’s what you need to know about cookware materials and what they can offer to your culinary experience.
Stainless Steel Cookware - Stainless steel cookware has a reputation that has been built over years of delivering a top-notch cooking experience while maintaining a gorgeous gleaming exterior that resists rust. Not only does stainless steel cookware work with pretty much any stovetop (including induction!), but the numerous styles of stainless steel cookware will fit in with any kitchen aesthetic. Heavier and more heat conductive 5-ply stainless steel pieces will blow your mind!
Anodized Cookware - Though anodized cookware is more of a finish than a material, it’s still something that you should consider in your purchase. Do you hate scrubbing your pots and pans after working hard to create a tantalizing meal? Maybe you have a reputation for scorching pans beyond recognition. Whatever the case is anodized cookware is the answer! This cookware is specially treated to ensure that food simply glides off of it. No scrubbing, no scorched pans, and little to no maintenance. It sounds like a dream.
Copper Cookware - Copper cookware is one of the most stylish cookware materials. A bright bronze-like color which can be polished to a shine or dulled, ages well and can change colors over time. Additionally, copper cookware conducts heat well, so whatever meal you plan on making will be sure to cook evenly and offer diners an excellent culinary experience.
