Cookware sets can include a wide variety of different items and vary in size from two pieces to 30 pieces. Basic sets usually include some combination of saucepans, fry pans, saute pans and stockpots. These sets are good options if you are just starting out as they offer basic, versatile pieces that can cook several different dishes. They are also good choices if you have a small kitchen as they do not take up much space in your cabinets or shelves. Larger sets may include a few specialty items, such as Dutch ovens, sauciers or soup pots. They may also include accessories like pasta and steamer inserts, ladles, screens and racks. These sets work well in large kitchens with lots of storage space and can provide you with a professional setup for creating gourmet meals.
Usually, cookware sets include pieces made from the same materials, but there are a few exceptions. For example, some sets may bundle stainless-steel pots and saucepans with nonstick fry and saute pans or consist of cast-iron cookware and ceramic bakeware. Various materials offer you different benefits in the kitchen. Stainless-steel is low maintenance and durable, which makes it a fantastic all-purpose cookware material. Wind down after a busy day with a delicious home-cooked meal and leave the cleanup to the dishwasher. Copper and cast-iron let you hone your inner chef. Pros prefer copper cookware because can heat up quickly and distributes heat evenly. This prevents hot spots that burn ingredients to the bottom of the pan. Cast-iron offers similar benefits, and because it is heavy-duty, you can enjoy years of use from your cookware. Nonstick is a lifesaver if you lead a hectic lifestyle, as the coating on the cookware interior takes mere minutes to clean.
Williams Sonoma offers a great selection of accessories to go with your cookware items. Trivets let you bring your recipes straight from the stove to the table. Materials like wood, silicone and marble absorb heat, which protects your table from hot pots and pans. Pot handles and lids can get hot while you are cooking, so potholders are always handy to have in your kitchen. Dish towels can also protect your hands from warmer surfaces. Although some cookware sets include accessories, such as racks and ladles, smaller sets tend to lack utensils. Browse our collections for tools and accessories to stir, mix, blend, flip and serve your meals. Silicone and wood utensils help keep your nonstick cookware in excellent shape, whereas metal utensils can make an attractive countertop display.
