Cookware Sets with Cookware Set Reviews

Cookware sets are an easy way to get many necessary kitchen pots and pans at one time. My cookware set reviews are based on hands on experience, customer reviews from multiple sources and cookware industry research. I recommend the best quality and best value cookware sets. As the founder of the Home Cooking Academy, I stress test cookware and I know what performs when it needs to. Based on all the cookware brands I cover, I have awarded certain brands, product lines, and cookware sets, as being the best in terms of 1) premium quality and 2) value, each based on the cookware set material.

Cookware Set Reviews

In recommending cookware sets, I looked at 2 categories, Quality, and Value.

Best Quality – These cookware sets stand out as being well built and perform the best when cooking in the stove, on the stove, sauteeing, braising, poaching, and pan roasting. They have a feature set that is only found on higher end cookware sets. These are expected to last a very long time.

Best Value – These cookware sets offer the most “bang for the buck.” Their cooking performance is closer to the best quality choices compared to their peers. They offer more features than their price peers, are built better than their price peers, and although they probably won’t last as long as the premium quality award winners, they are expected to outlast their peers. 

Here are a few quick pointers on the materials. Stainless steel is generally considered a healthy material and is usually dishwasher safe. Hard anodized aluminum usually comes with a nonstick inner coating, is lighter in weight, and heats very well. Copper will heat the best, and usually requires hand washing. Nonstick is easy to cook with and clean up.
