Cookware isn’t cheap — well, not usually. When you look at top brands like Le Creuset, All-Clad and Hexclad, you can’t get a pan for less than $100, let alone a set. And if you like the look of Caraway and Great Jones trendy, colorful pieces, well, they’re pretty pricey, too.
That said, all of these brands do make really great cookware. The problem is, my own cookware tends to take a beating. No matter the brand, my nonstick frying pans tend to lose their nonstick pretty fast. Hence, why I’m personally giving up on expensive cookware for now and recently bought this affordable frying pan set from Bed Bath & Beyond. You’d never know the set is only $40. But, even better — it’s now on sale for only $28.
Our Table Nonstick Aluminum Two-Piece Fry Pan Set, $28 (Orig. $40)
The Our Table Nonstick Aluminum Two-Piece Fry Pan Set includes a 10-inch and a 12-inch pan. The aluminum helps to conduct heat more evenly, while its nonstick ceramic-coated interior provides a slick, cooking surface for an easy food release. The pans are safe for most cooktops and oven-safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, they’re like, really pretty. You can get the set in three colors — blue, green and white — each with gold-painted stainless steel handles.
I’ve been using these pans at least five times a week for about a month now, and I have zero complaints. I don’t feel the need to preciously protect them when my boyfriend puts them in the dishwasher, either (although you probably shouldn’t do that).
If you haven’t heard of it, Our Table is Bed Bath & Beyond’s own cooking and dining collection, and everything is pretty affordable. In addition to the frying pans, I also purchased the 14-inch Everyday Pan for $45, and while I haven’t used it as much, it’s the same great quality.
Whether you cook a little or a lot, you have to take care of your expensive cookware. If you don’t have the time or want to put in the effort, then get an inexpensive set that does the job, looks good and you won’t mind tossing out when you accidentally burn off the nonstick coating.
