20 Best Cooking Ware Sets

Cuisinart MCP-12N Multiclad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set

[THE MOST EXPENSIVE] This is Cuisinart cookware set. I really like this cookware set, all silver, very beautiful, and also use my favorite stainless steel. I never need to afraid or worry when the coating will peel off.

As long as you are not afraid of boring, I believe this cookware set can use for a lifetime, even passed to the next generation. The polished cooking surface will not discolor, will not react with the food or alter flavors.

It comes with stainless steel cool grip handles, and the cover is also stainless steel rim. Although it’s a cool grip handle, I believe the temperature of the handle will still higher than rubberized or silicone handles. So, prepare a small towel or mitt when you are cooking food.

The three-layer construction allows the best conductivity because the core is made of aluminum. This guarantees the retention of heat, the average distribution of heat, and eliminating hot spots.

When I first see the word aluminum, I think maybe some part of the cookware set is made of aluminum. In the end, I discovered that only the core of the 3-ply bottom is aluminum. The other layer is a brushed stainless exterior.

If some part of this set is made aluminum, I definitely won’t buy it. Stainless steel is the best.

It can be used in the oven, the temperature can up to 550 degrees F.

This cookware set includes 1-1/2- and 3-quart covered saucepans; 8- and 10-inch open skillets; 3-1/2-quart covered saute pan; 8-quart covered stockpot; steamer insert with lid.

It can use in the induction cooktops. If your cooktops are induction, it’s good news for you.

I personally use stainless steel cookware set for a long time. I can’t find any reason to buy a new one. So, if you choose the stainless steel cookware set, you can save money in the long-term.

You don’t need to worry about what level of heat you need to use. If the nonstick coating has scratches, will you continue to use it?

According to the experience of many people, the nonstick coating is very easy to scratch, but you will never have to worry about this problem if you use stainless steel cookware sets.

I have used stainless steel cookware sets for many years although it is a bit boring because it has been used for many years, it will never be damaged.

Rachael Ray Cucina Hard Porcelain Enamel Nonstick Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Agave Blue

[EDITOR CHOICE] This is Rachael Ray cookware set that uses rustic and modern color. It has 7 colors to let you choose from. You can choose the one that best fits your kitchen style.

This color is very beautiful because the general kitchen utensils are all black or silver, but this color gives me a fresh feeling. I think it will add atmosphere and color to everyone’s kitchen.

It includes two covered saucepans (1-qt/ 3-qt), one 6-qt covered stockpot, two skillets (8-in/10-in), and one 3-qt covered saute pan. I believe this cookware set contains the most common use cookware that is enough for general household use.

Made with durable aluminum and has a strong enamel porcelain exterior. Honestly, I don’t care if the cookware set is made with this durable aluminum or not.

According to everyone’s previous experience, when will you buy a new cookware set? Will you still use it if the coating is peeled off?

I believe that everyone will only buy a new one because the coating is damaged, why?

This is because some material will release from scratch when you are cooking the food and it is not good for health. So, for me, the material of the exterior is not important. The most important is the interior. This cookware set using PFOA-free nonstick makes it safer and more secure to cook.

The 12-piece kitchen cookware set boasts dual-riveted rubberized stainless steel handles and this shatter-resistant glass lids, and also include slotted turner and spoon

It can be safely used in the oven and the temperature up to 400 degrees F. The suitable heat source is all gas, electric, ceramic and halogen except induction.

This 12 cookware set can meet the needs of normal families. With this set of cookware sets, you don’t have to buy other cookware anymore. You can always cook different foods for your family and cook different tastes according to different recipes

The prometal pro nonstick interior is especially durable and scratch-resistant. It claims the metal utensil can be used. But I still recommend using other material utensils such as silicone or wood, don’t choose metal.

The unique T-fal Thermo-spot heat indicator shows a temperature suitable for cooking. This feature is quite useful for me. The color will change if the temperature reaches properly. You no need to guess whether your pan is heated enough or not.

The riveted silicone handles make your grip comfortable and you won’t feel hot when cooking at high temperatures. I have tried some stainless steel handle. It’s really very hot. At that time, I know the silicone handle is very important.

The cookware set can be washed in the dishwasher. It can also be used in the oven, the temperature can up to 400 degrees F.

It is suitable for all heating sources such as gas, electric, ceramic and halogen include induction (Except for the one egg wonder). It’s good news for everyone.  Many other cookware sets cannot use induction.

AmazonBasics 8-Piece Non-Stick Cookware Set

[BUDGET PRODUCT] This is AmazonBasics cookware set. I don’t know if you are the same as me. It’s the first time to hear the AmazonBasics brand. I find the AmazonBasics brand also produced many other different kinds of products.

This 8-piece nonstick cookware set includes an 8-inch fry pan, 10-inch fry pan, 1.5-quart saucepan with lid, 2-quart saucepan with lid, and 3-quart casserole pan with the lid. I think 8-piece is already enough for normal use. For me, my cookware set is less than 8-piece.

It’s also easy to cook and clean with the non-stick coating on the aluminum body.

I believe many people like non-stick coating. When you cook a rich dinner, have you ever tried to feel pain when you face so many dishes to wash? Non-stick coating can make you easy to clean, thus reducing the pain of washing dishes.

This comfortable soft-touch handle will remain cool when cooked. This feature is very important because if you cook at high temperatures, the handle may become very hot. But this one will remain cool.

The air hole on the cover can make steam escape. Do you see the lid without an air hole?

The bottom of this spiral makes the heat distribute evenly. It can be used in gas, electric, and glass stovetops, but the induction cannot be used. Note, not all the cookware sets can use in induction. Only a few of them can use it.

One thing to note is that this nonstick cookware sets can only be washed by hand. It’s not dishwasher safe. My final opinion is the color of this cookware set is all black, I feel a bit boring. If you don’t like black, I think this is not suitable for you, although the price is cheaper. I always think other colors will look better.

T-fal B363S3 Specialty Nonstick Omelette Pan 8-Inch 9.5-Inch and 11-Inch Dishwasher Safe PFOA Free

This is T-fal cookware set. I believe everyone has heard this big brand of nonstick cookware. This 3-piece cookware includes 8 inch, 9.5 inch, and 11-inch fry pans.

You can see that all 3 are fry pans. You can use it to fry different foods from the morning to the evening without washing it. One meal uses one pan.

If you don’t need to use so many fry pans, you can actually buy it back, then give it to your friend or family member, or share the cost with your friends.

If you feel good, you can buy the whole cookware set so you can minimize the risk of your purchase because not everyone likes to use nonstick cookware.

For me, I like stainless steel cookware set because you never have to worry about when the nonstick coating will peel off. If your nonstick coating has the scratch, do you think you will continue to use?

Using a stainless steel cookware set, you no need to buy a new one for a lifetime. Even past it to your descendants as a gift.

One more thing, I like the silver color. This also can colorful my kitchen.

The color is turquoise that’s very beautiful. I think it can make your kitchen more stylish. To be honest, I used the all-silver cookware set for so many years, I really feel a bit boring.

Thermolon nonstick coating can let you low-fat cooking and it’s very easy to clean.

The coating is free of PFAS, PFOA, Lead or Cadmium so when cooking, simmering, searing, frying or baking, there are absolutely no toxic fumes released. It seems the first time I see a coating without PFAS, PFOA, Lead or Cadmium in one time. In this way, you can cook healthy.

Durable aluminum and carbon steel body make the cookware set more durable, high heat resistance and heat evenly distributed.

The stay-cool handles with soft-touch make you more comfortable and keep the handle stay cool during use. Rims are drip-free pouring design.

It’s made with Thermon ceramic non-stick which is produced without PFOA, PFAS, lead or cadmium, so even if you accidentally overheat your pan, toxic gas will not be released.

The coating is different from other nonstick coatings because Thermon ceramic is made of sand so it is very safe.

The handle is ergonomic stay cool soft-grip handle. It’s soft to touch, very comfortable. It looks like the handle is very large and soft. I believe that it will really stay-cool and won’t feel hot during cooking. Maybe just a little bit. I think it’s totally acceptable.

The temperature used in the oven can up to 350 degrees F. If you don’t use the oven to cook food, you can ignore this like me. I don’t like to use the oven to cook food because I need to wait for a long time every time I want to eat.

After using a sturdy aluminum reinforced body, you can provide a very good heat transfer effect so you can use less energy when cooking.

It’s dishwasher safe. You no need to fight with the dishes anymore after the meals.

For best results, it recommends to use low to medium heat settings with a little bit of butter and a few drops of oil, and use nylon or wooden utensils.

Cookware is oven safe to 350 degrees F. The cooking pan is oven safe to 450 degrees F.

Double-riveted handles make it sturdy and offer a confident grip. The lid is made of shatter-resistant glass but doesn’t have the vent hole. I think the glass lid has a vent hole that will be better.

Why don’t you design at least one vent hole in the glass lid? How do they expect the steam to come out?

Although this is a long-established brand, I still believe in stainless steel without coating.

I used to use nonstick coating cookware, but I often think about a problem. When the cookware has few scratches, should I replace it all? I just know one thing, no matter how you care about the coating and use carefully. Nonstick coating cannot use for your lifetime.

If you don’t mind and don’t want the food stick on the pan, then you should buy a nonstick coating cookware set.

It’s safe because of no PFOA and PTFE chemicals. Normally, do you know that these two chemicals will be added to the nonstick cookware and begin to disintegrate at high heats?

The coatings may peel off on the food and then eat into the body. So, if you like nonstick coating cookware, please read carefully whether the coating has PFOA or PTFE these two chemicals.

You can use the 8-inch frying pan to fry up your favorite egg recipes. 10-inch frying pan for sauté veggie, it also perfect for simmering your favorite one-pan meal.

For the Hollandaise sauce, a 1.5-quart sauce pot with the lid is perfect for you. 2.5-quart sauce pot is great for quick boils and heavy sauces.

It can be washed in a dishwashing machine, but hand washing with mild detergent and warm water is recommended. If you use abrasive cleaners, it may damage the surface of red copper cookware, so it is not recommended.

You see the images above. What do you see on the handles? It’s a copper-plated ring that lets you hold it in the wall easily for additional storage options. I think the ring is better than a hole.

Double-layer nonstick coating for easy food release and quick and easy cleaning. The features include measuring marks, pour spouts, and straining lids.

Convenient measuring marks are very easy to use. You can easily know how much food is in the bowl at any time. If you cook the soup, you can know the amount of water without using a measuring cup. I think this is a useful design.

Pour spouts & straining lids are also good designs. If you often have to drain the cooking liquid, you will know how useful it is. You can do it easily with straining lids. You don’t have to worry about the food inside will be poured out when you are draining.

This feature is especially suitable for cooking spaghetti. With this cookware, you can save money without having to buy other tools to do the same thing.

I personally like this design very much. I always measure water and cook noodles. Every time I cook the noodles, I need to drain the cooking liquid. This feature is really useful for me.

I never saw these designs in other cooker sets. It’s an excellent feature for me. The designer is very caring, taking into account some daily needs.

It’s made of durable hard-anodized aluminum for long-term use. The long handle uses stay-cool stainless steel to let you grip without any hot and comfortable. It’s safe to use in the oven and the temperature is up to 450 degrees F.

I used to think that the handle is not very important, but after reading so many different cookware sets. I think the handle is very important because there are some handles design is really better than others. It can be stored easily. When you grip it, it will be more comfortable.

The color of the handles is very beautiful, but it should be hard. I personally like the handle with a soft touch. It’s very comfortable when you grip it in your hand.

The heat mastery system work with the superior non-stick coating, even heat base and thermoses technology making every cooking perfect.

This can be put into the dishwasher, and the temperature of the oven can go up to 350 degrees F.

The handle is designed with comfortable dual-riveted and uses silicone-over-stainless-steel for warm and earthy hue. The storage hole of the handle is quite big. It’s convenience for you to hold it on the wall easily.

I saw some with a small hole. I don’t know why the designer design such a small hole handle. Maybe it’s call stylish.

Shatter-resistant glass lids have wide stainless steel rims that look prettier. I like wide stainless steel rims. It looks stronger and not easy to broken if you fall down on the floor accidentally.

In addition to the pots and pans, the cookware set also includes sturdy, flexible slotted nylon turner and spoon that match the handles’ stylish color.

Normally, the free utensils are in black color. But this time, the colors of free utensils match with the cookware handles. It looks more elegant. I like this design and feel.

It’s oven safe to 400 degrees F. I don’t like the oven so I don’t care how high the temperature is.

So, if you see some cookware sets is not dishwasher safe, just don’t buy it.

This is Vremi ceramic cookware set. 8 pieces set includes 2 dutch oven pots, 1 casserole pot with lids and 2 angled frying pan skillets for an omelet or crepe, and can go directly from stovetop to table as serveware.

Features bakelite ergonomic wood-tone handles for easy tossing and turning and lids that have the small gap between lid and body for mess-free steam release and cooking.

Again, it is the first time I saw a cookware set use wood-tone handle. It’s quite special. I feel fresh when I see it. Honestly, this cookware set is a bit like a toy if you look at this little far away. It’s really interesting.

Each cookware also has an induction-compatible spiral bottom, which can be used in gas, electric or halogen stovetop, but keep in mind that the induction, the burner diameter should not exceed the pan or pot diameter base.

You no need to worry anything if you move to another house and what kind of stovetop you will use. But, remember, this cookware set is not oven safe. Don’t cook the food in the oven.

This pan is designed for easy flipping. Thanks to the curved construction design, you can easily flip out omelets, pasta, pancakes, or you can toss some of your favorite foods and enjoy flipping in the kitchen.

I think I have to consider buying the cookware set with other shapes other than the normal shape. It’s too boring.

The bottom of the stainless steel is fully encapsulated with a layer of the thick aluminum core that provides a heat distribute evenly. It can use on all stoves, including glass and induction.

Normally, a stainless steel cookware set will have an aluminum core as a bottom nowadays to ensure the heat distribute evenly. If you see some stainless steel cookware sets do not have an aluminum core bottom, just don’t buy it and choose the other one.

Glass lids allow you to monitor your cooking progress without having to lift the lid to release moisture or nutrients. Sure, glass lids are the basic requirement of modern cookware set.

How To Choose The Best Cooking Ware Set

Stainless Steel

The main advantage of the cookware set made from stainless steel is you no need to worry anything will be peeled off if you scratch by metal utensil or wash improperly.

It will not discolor, react with food or alter flavors. It will not be damaged if the cookware is overheated for a short time.

It can be used for a lifetime. You no need to buy the second cookware set anymore.

The main disadvantage is it may be difficult to wash compared to the nonstick coating.

Scratch Resistant

Some cookware sets claim to be safe for use with the metal utensil.

In my personal opinion, I suggest you use plastic or silicone utensils if your cookware set is a nonstick interior.

Warranty

Some cookware says you can use the metal utensil, but the warranty say SCRATCHES are not covered, will you use?

Beware of some cookware set cannot be using it over MEDIUM heat, otherwise, the warranty will be void.

Oven Safe

Not all the cookware sets can put in the oven. Even if it can be put in the oven, the temperature cannot be too high. Some are 350 Degree F, some are 400 Degree F.

Read the instruction carefully first. Different cookware set has a different temperature limit. Otherwise, the warranty will be void.

Dishwasher Safe

Beware not all the cookware set is not dishwasher safe, even if it is safe for dishwasher, it also needs to use the right detergent. Actually, hand wash is recommended.

Read the instruction carefully first.

Interior

It can be a superior Ceramic & Titanium interior, Prometal Pro nonstick interior or other else.

Hard-Anodized

If you want to clean very easy and fast, I think is hard anodized is a good choice for you that is crafted for long-lasting durability

Heat Indicator

The unique T-fal Thermo-spot heat indicator shows when T-fal pan is perfectly preheated. As I know, only T-fal’s cookware set has a heat indicator.

Labels On The Bottom

Actually, this is a minor problem that will not affect the performance of your cookware set. But the adhesive label on the bottom may be frustrated to remove.

You pry up a corner with your fingernail, start to peel and that little corner just tears off, then you pry up another corner, a little more this time thinking it will just peel off. You may take an hour to remove it completely.

Safety Standard

There is many standard such as PFOA free, BPA free, PFAS free, PTFE free, Lead-free, Cadmium-free, etc.

Normally, none of the cookware can fulfill all the standards, so, just try to find the best one.

Handles

It can be dual-riveted rubberized stainless steel handles, riveted silicone handles.

Stainless steel handles may be a little bit hot when you are cooking. But the silicone handle may be more comfortable to hold the pan.

Lid

The shatter-resistant glass lid is preferable.

Heat Source

Make sure your cookware set is suitable for use on all stovetops including gas, electric, ceramic, halogen or induction.

Cooking Tools

Some cookware set will have some free cooking tools as a gift.

Conclusion

Will 20 cookware sets make you difficult to choose?

Overall, there are only two kinds of cookware sets. One is stainless steel, the other one is a nonstick coating.

In my personal opinion, I like stainless steel because it really can use for a lifetime. It saves money. Importantly, I no need to worry every time when will the coating will be peeled off. I no need to worry about the food I cook can eat or not.

Does anyone hear nonstick coating that can use for a lifetime?

The main disadvantage of the stainless steel cookware set I can think is the food really easy stick in the pan.

If you want to wash easier, the only choice is to buy a nonstick coating. Then I will suggest you buy my top pick “T-fal Hard Anodized Cookware Set, Nonstick Pots and Pans Set, 17 Piece, Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator, Gray”.

If you want to take a look at more cooking appliances, I think the post below should be suitable for you.
