Tips on picking the best cookware.
Pots & Saucepans
Frying Pans & Sauté Pans
Durable stainless steel is oven and dishwasher safe, rust-resistant, and won't react to or absorb flavours so it can be used for virtually any dish
Heavyweight and durable, oven safe cast iron is a good conductor and retainer of evenly distributed heat, so it's ideal for frying and simmering
Great for heat retention and even distribution - even up along its sides, lightweight and affordable aluminum cookware is ideal for everyday use
Besides its gourmet aesthetic, copper offers great heat control by warming and cooling quickly and evenly, reducing overall cooking time of any meal
Easy to clean, durable and scratch-resistant, ceramic's non-stick surface holds heat well, and is great for oven use and simmering

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.
