There was even more discoloration around the sides and edges, which testers thought was probably from the cooking oil. We found the best sets for every purpose, whether you’re searing on the stove or cooking over the campfire. “I loved that cuisinart knife I could still touch the handles on both sides without burning my hands—even after 15 minutes heating up on the stovetop.” We previously tested the 12½-inch skillet from the Breville Thermal Pro line for our guide to the best skillet.

Cast iron cookware often has an enameled coating so it doesn’t need seasoning the way that uncoated cast iron does. Coated cast iron is resistant to corrosion and can handle acidic foods with ease. The downside to any coating is that it can be damaged, which can render the pan useless.

We tested the Hestan 12.5″ Open Skillet to see if its NanoBond Technology made it less prone to discoloration than other cookware. The pan discolored slightly in our tests, but it was easy to clean with the Hestan brand stainless steel cleaner. However, because the skillet concentrated heat in the center of the pan, we opted not to try the full Hestan 10-Piece Set.

(We opted not to test the former Potluck set because it came with just seven pieces and included a 10-inch skillet only.) The set we now recommend was introduced after the company’s rebranding. The Goldilocks pot lids are noticeably lighter than those in the All-Clad set. However, considering this set’s remarkably low price, we don’t think this small flaw should deter you. Just keep in mind that since the lids aren’t quite as durable as those of our other picks, they may dent easier if they take a tumble from your stove onto the floor. We long-term tested an older version of this set for two years , and all of the pots and pans continued to distribute heat evenly.

When it comes to cookware sets, the number of pieces depends on your needs and the size of your household. Just keep in mind that the number of pieces will also include lids. In fact, both cooked with a nice, even heat, and there was no noticeable warping when we dipped the pan into ice after cooking.

All-Clad has been a top performer in our cookware tests; it heats evenly, prevents food from sticking and browns meat well. While we haven’t tested this All-Clad set, we are pleased to see that the brand’s new nonstick line is oven-safe up to 500˚F. We’re also fans of sets like these that include small and medium sauté pans.

Are there enough pieces in the set to make it worth the investment? Are the pieces made from aluminum, ceramic, copper or stainless steel? These are all important questions to ask yourself when buying a new cookware set because you don’t want to get one only then to return or damage it a week later. It comes with glass lids that not just release steam while looking but provide aesthetics and durability. Each set contains mini frying pans, frying pans, saucepans, stockpot, stainless steel steamer, and kitchen utensils for a complete cooking experience.
