Whether you’re buying your first cookware set or are looking to upgrade your mismatched pots and pans, here are the answers to some of the most common questions you may have.
Whether you need a couple of key pieces or a full 20-piece set, cookware sets are an economical choice for anyone who uses a variety of pots and pans when cooking. Rather than buying your pieces one at a time, cookware sets save you money and there’s an option for the novice home-cook, the culinary master and everything in between.
Non-stick coating makes cleaning pots and pans quick and easy, and is ideal for preparing delicate foods like omelets and fish. It is also a good choice for anyone who wants to cut down on the oil and butter used during the cooking process.
Stainless steel is a durable metal with an attractive finish, but is not the best conductor of heat and requires maintenance to keep its shine. Copper is often quite expensive and can be difficult to clean, but is the best conductor of heat. Aluminum pots and pans provide the best performance, almost always have a non-stick coating and need to be hand-washed.
The number on the bottom of your stainless steel pots and pans is a grade that represents the composition of that material, such as “18/0” or “18/10”. The first number indicates the chromium content of the material and the second number indicates the percentage of nickel content. The higher the nickel content, the better quality the stainless steel is, with nickel giving the cookware a shiny, rust-resistant finish.
Three ply cookware is constructed with three different layers of metal to create pots and pans that have the benefits of different materials in one piece. The most common tri-ply cookware is composed of stainless steel that is durable and easy to clean, and either aluminum or copper to help conduct heat.
Cast Iron pots and pans are often regarded as an investment that will last a lifetime with the proper care. The material is non-toxic, offers excellent heat retention and if seasoned properly is non-stick. Cast iron cookware requires on-going maintenance and careful cleaning, but with the right care it can be a great investment.
Tips & ideas from the blog
Cast iron cookware has been around for centuries. Long before the electric stove was invented in the early 1900s, most meals were prepared using cast iron skillets, pots and griddles, and an open flame. A lot has changed since then, but the appeal of cast iron remains the same. Said to be the best cookware ever invented, the key to its longevity lies in its care. Follow these simple rules and your cast iron cookware will last for generations to come.

There’s something that happens to people when they start to get into food and food preparation. Whether you are a budding chef or just a foodie who wants to try things at home, you take a good long look at the pots and pans you have in your kitchen and you put them to work, experimenting with what works best for different dishes.
Have you ever cooked in a cast iron pan? If you haven’t, you’re really missing out on an amazing experience. Beyond the fact that cast iron pots and pans are absolutely gorgeous and come in a variety of beautiful colours, they let you cook healthier, cook food more evenly than standard cookware, and enhance the flavour of your favourite dishes in ways you just can’t with your old pots and pans.
