From throwing your first dinner party to inviting the future in-laws over for brunch, you can whip up feasts in the kitchen in no time with the right cookware. Cookware sets from Anolon, Calphalon and All-Clad range from basic to comprehensive and contain all the essentials you need to make everything from a romantic dinner for two to a party's worth of appetizers. If you’d rather build your own set, you can choose individual pots and pans from brands like Scanpan or Zwilling J.A. Henckels. Go restaurant-style with classic stainless steel or opt for nonstick cookware to make basic tasks easier. To make slow-simmering soups and stews, expand your cookware collection to include Dutch ovens, such as the colorful options by Staub. Invest in versatile pressure cookers from Fagor or Fissler that will quickly cook anything from rice to roasts using nothing more than steam pressure. These cookware sets and specialty pieces are also beautifully designed, so you can proudly display your collection in the kitchen.
