If there’s one thing the pandemic has done, it’s that it has turned us all into semi-home cooks, or on the flipside, more obsessed with home decor. With this newfound love for the kitchen, it’s a good excuse to do some shopping – to liven and beautify our countertops. In fact, let us tempt you with a collection of the most gorgeous cookware, so you can equip yourself to be the next viral Instagram account with swoon-worthy kitchenware flat lays.

Always Pan, Our Place

A cult-favourite and a best seller, this pan definitely earned its stripes with its 9-in-1 functions – fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. It has a non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating, and is also compatible with all cooktops – yes, induction stoves included. And with its sturdy aluminium body for fast even heat, it is also decently lightweight, so no trembling hands while handling it. The cherry on top? It comes in 10 different colours to suit your kitchen aesthetic.

Sodam Cookware Set, Modori

Korean brand, Modori’s Sodam set truly brings functionality to a whole new meaning. While most would think a dual function cookware would mean cooking a larger variety of dishes, Sodam actually combines tableware and cookware, so there’s no need to transfer food to a serving dish. It features a removable, multifunctional handle that attaches easily from one of the three pans in the Sodam set. It has a 5 layered non-stick ceramic coating, allowing for easy cleaning, and no food stains or colour transfer on the beautiful white pans. It is also compatible with a range of cooktops, inductions and oven-safe. Our favourite thing about it though, has to be its easy, yet aesthetic storage. Coming in 3 different sizes, the pans stack neatly on top of each other, almost like a russian doll.

This is definitely a beautiful statement piece to have in your kitchen. Handcrafted at a family-owned workshop in the Italian Alps, this is a heavy-gauge copper pan, made from a single sheet of copper. The beautiful exterior hand-hammered copper is not just for aesthetics, but also excellent for heat conductivity and ensures longevity. Though designed with making risotto in mind, this stunner of a pan is also perfect for simmering some flavour-packed sauces and soups. 

Round French Oven, Le Creuset

Probably world-renowned for its enamelled cast iron cookware, Le Creuset has made its mark on the culinary world. Their iconic French Ovens is an updated kitchen classic, with their time-honed designs making it perfect for large family gatherings of casseroles, stews, pot roasting and perfect for preparing soups and rice dishes, even for baking. Also known as a dutch oven, it enhances the cooking process by evenly distributing heat and locking in just the right amount of moisture for tender meats and stews. Though the heavy weight of the cast iron may make you think twice, it is because of its material that marks it with the longevity for a kitchen heirloom piece. 

The Coated Pan, Material

Not only is it stunning at first glance, it’s also made with a stainless steel alloy surrounding a copper core. This means you get all the low-maintenance goodness of stainless steel, but get to benefit from copper’s heat conductivity. With a five-ply copper core, it’s built to last, so it won’t warp or scorch and you can proudly hand it over from mother to daughter. In this pan, the details matter, so apart from the 2 gorgeously contrasting colour ways for the pan’s interior to its stainless steel exterior, the edge of the pan gently curls outwards, allowing for easy, mess-free pouring.

If you’re looking to add a pop of colour into your kitchen, but simply too afraid to commit to it in big ticket items like refrigerators (yes, we know, SMEG), you can do so with your pots and pans! Especially for those new homeowners who are literally starting with zero cookware of your own, Caraway’s Cookware Set may just be the answer to your prayers. Coming in six vibrant colours – Marigold, Perracotta, Sage, Gray, Navy and Cream, the set provides you with all the basics, and makes your kitchen look cohesive at the same time. A Dutch Oven and the holy trio of a Sauce, Fry and Saute pan, you’re all set to make your mother proud the next time she comes over for lunch. It’s safe to use on all stovetops, induction and ovens included, plus it comes with storage solutions – a pan rack and lid sleeve. So functionality aside, it also doubles up as I-am-a-Masterchef decor. (Lastly, Jenn Im uses it so that’s probably all the incentive you’ll need to add to cart.)
