In a perfect world, every home would have quality fixtures, furniture and home ware that would last for generations, satisfying every homeowner’s needs. Sadly we don’t live in such a world and most of us can’t afford to pay for high quality everything so we have to choose where we put our money wisely.
While young adults and people just starting to live on their own might not believe it, anyone with a couple of years of experience in the kitchen know that good cookware is something worth investing in, as using the right set of kitchen tools can help you not only save time and money but also cook better food. This is why I bring you these lists, where I review which are (in my opinion) the best cookware sets the market has to offer.
Cook N Home NC-00358 Nonstick Ceramic Coating 10-Piece Cookware Set
The most affordable of the list and also one of the most dependable, Cook N Home demonstrates that you don’t have to sacrifice quality and safety to save some money.
I thoroughly enjoy cooking with this set as its ceramic coat makes it easy to clean and almost completely non-stick. The only downside to this, if you can call it that, is that the ceramic finish means you can’t use metal utensils or anything with Teflon on them but considering just how well these work on their own, it’s not really a problem.
While the price might not suggest it, this cookware set is genuinely better than many of the ones advertised and sold by celebrity chefs and it’s easy to see why! They heat fast, they cook great and they clean up easy. Plus, they come in a lovely lime green color that goes great with most things.
Consider the Cook N Home Cookware Set if you’re looking for an affordable yet effective nonstick ceramic cookware set for your kitchen. Just keep in mind that this set doesn’t come with any utensils so you’re going to have to buy those on your own.
WearEver C943SA Pure Living Nonstick Ceramic Coating 10-Piece Cookware set
This is the second most expensive item on this list but it’s just as dependable as the rest. The WearEver cookware set is a great option for those willing to spend a little more to ensure Teflon and cadmium free cooking materials that can cook with less oil, ensuring a healthier result for you and your family.
This set uses an aluminum base that’s good at heating your cookware while still leaving its nonstick properties intact. Perhaps the only con to this is that, just as with the Cook N Home, you can’t really use metal utensils without damaging the ceramic finish. Luckily, this particular set comes with plastic utensils plus the pans and pots so you won’t have to buy any extras for cooking with this set.
I used this particular set for over 8 months and I never had any complaints though it’s important to mention that you need to follow the care instructions to avoid any issues. Ceramic coated cookware doesn’t work as your regular cookware so treating it as such is a recipe for disaster and something you want to avoid if you don’t want to end up having to buy a new set in just a couple of months.
Consider the WearEver Cookware Set if you’re looking for a well built, sturdy and affordable ceramic cookware set that comes with its own utensils or if you’re looking for oven safe nonstick pots.
WearEver C943SF Pure Living Nonstick Ceramic Coating PTFE / PFOA Free Dishwasher Safe Cookware set, 15-Piece
This beautiful red nonstick ceramic cookware set is the most expensive of the list but also the one that will give you the most bangs for your buck. With 15 pieces, none of which are utensils, you’ll have enough cookware to feed an army, all from the comfort of your home.
This is a great option for those looking for cadmium and Teflon free cookware as its aluminum base and ceramic coating makes these pans and pots quick to heat and safe to use both at home and in a more professional setting.
What I like about this cookware set is that it’s healthier than almost all other non-stick sets, it comes at a reasonable price, it’s quite sturdy and it isn’t particularly heavy. There’s also the fact that it’s easy to clean, both at hand and using a dishwasher. I also like the red finish and the white interior, as it goes with everything while also allowing you to see just how nonstick these babies are.
This set was recently given to me as a birthday gift and I must say I’m absolutely in love with it! It delivers the same high quality results as its smaller counterpart while including even more options, such as a saucepan and a steamer insert.
The one bad thing I can say about this set, as well as every other ceramic coated cookware set, is that these should never be used at high heat as doing so puts you at risk of running the nonstick qualities of the ceramic coating. Consider the WearEver Cookware Set, 15-Pieces if you’re looking for a complete ceramic coated cookware set that’s fit to satisfy just about every cooking need.
While I was hesitant to start cooking with ceramic cookware at first I soon grew to love it! Ceramic cookware needs proper care and maintenance but they’re a wonderful investment when you know how to take care of it. I’m never going back to Teflon and I hope that this list helps you find the right cookware to meet your needs so you can go ahead and make the switch from Teflon to ceramic coat.
These cookware sets are the best for their value both in the market and in Cuisinart so don’t wait any longer to get yours!
