Add to Cart Regular Price: NZ$30.40 A good option when shopping is to consider a cookware set as many come with a number of pieces in one kit, making it cheaper than purchasing each individual piece on its own.

We stock a broad range of fry pans, nonstick, induction ready, stainless steel and cast iron from brands like Scan pan which is one of Australia's most popular cookware brands, the French icon Le Crest and the hard-wearing German favorite Well. A grill pan is a fantastic choice of cookware for those who enjoy having char lines and grilling meat, chicken, seafood and even vegetables.

A great substitute for the barbecue in Winter or in homes such as apartments which may not have balconies to barbecue outside, a grill pan can provide similar cooking results. For those who enjoy cooking on raw cast iron, we recommend Lodge which is made in the USA and can be used on high heat, most cook tops including induction or campfires and retains a natural non-stick from occasional seasoning.

A chef pan are great for making larger meals. With a greater depth than fry pans, chef pans are ideal for cooking with sauces, searing and sautéing ingredients. Featuring two handles, a quality chef pan is ideal for cooking larger family meals as the depth allows for larger quantities.

A quality cast iron casserole is ideal for slow cooking ingredients in the oven, using its lid to retain moisture and cooking juices. While there’s nothing wrong with collecting pots and pans one at a time, a cookware set offers something that singular pieces don’t: cohesion.

And because of their identical construction, design, and material, each piece will allow you to produce consistent, evenly cooked meals every time. Many of the top cookware styles are nonstick, stainless steel, and hard-anodized aluminum, though you’ll also find ceramic and cast iron options, which are ideal for cooking low and slow.

On the other hand, if you consider yourself a pro home chef, you may be ready to invest in something of higher quality that will not only take your cooking game even further, but also be with you for the long haul. Most cookware collections are available to shop online from familiar retailers like Amazon, SUR La Table, and Williams Sonoma.

We browsed thousands of online reviews from real shoppers and found the 10 best cookware sets to add to your kitchen this year. The all-in-one cookware set is also designed with hard-anodized aluminum which creates a hard, smooth surface and essentially makes each piece nonstick.

“This is a very sturdy and well-made set of pots and pans given the low price,” said one reviewer, adding that they’ve “been using them for a while and no scratches or wear is showing up.” It’s important to note, however, that these budget-friendly pieces are not dishwasher safe, so hand washing is a must. With 18 pieces included, this large cookware set has everything the average home cook could possibly need to whip up a good meal, from saucepans to a stockpot to slotted spoons.

With a price tag over $1,000, this set is certainly an investment, but the impeccable quality will make it worth every penny in the long run. The stainless steel exterior is reinforced with a sturdy copper core, which provides the best of both worlds: a sleek aesthetic and a quick and even heat distribution that results in perfectly cooked dishes every time.

One reviewer said they’re a “great investment” while another said: “I am in love with my collection,” and continued, “everyday cooking is a pleasure, from stove top to oven.” Shoppers love these pots and pans for their durability, even heat distribution, and super easy cleanup (they’re all dishwasher-safe!).

More than 4,200 Amazon shoppers left a positive rating for this set, with one calling it “the best cookware purchase” they’ve ever made. The classic stainless steel pots and pans each have an aluminum base that quickly and evenly distributes heat, and they’re dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup.

While a set from Le Crest may be on the pricier side, it’s built to stand up to years of use and will prove to be well worth the initial investment. This cookware set from Rachael Ray’s collection not only comes in fun pops of color, but it’s also designed with a Scot-free nonstick surface that’s safe to cook on and virtually eliminates the chance of any pesky food scraps sticking, tearing, or leaving behind a mess.

One shopper claimed these are “the best non-stick pans” they’ve ever used, and a whopping 300 reviewers specifically touted this set as being “easy to clean.” This 14-piece set from Total is designed to make cooking easier for beginners: the brand’s signature Thermostat feature indicates when the surface is at the right temperature, which helps create consistent dishes each and every time.

Anyone with limited storage space understands the struggle of attempting to strategically place bulky pots and pans into a kitchen cabinet and hoping they don’t come tumbling down next time you open the door.
