You know you’ve reached adulthood when you get excited about a new set of pots and pans. And why shouldn’t you be? It’s a kitchen staple you use (and clean) every single day. It takes up precious real estate in your cabinets. And while functionality is the top priority, if you’re like me, you prefer cooking tools that are easy on the eyes. (Anything to soften the sting of making dinner every night, amiright?)
So when I decided to upgrade my mismatched set of hand-me-down pots and pans, I did some research. It’s an investment after all, and I subscribe to the mindset of choosing quality, long-lasting items over cheaper ones that need replacing in a year.
It didn’t take long before I found Caraway’s ceramic-coated Cookware Set that recently became Instagram famous. These pots and pans come in 5 gorgeous colors — cream, navy, sage, gray, and perracotta — that’ll instantly make an impression in your kitchen (hence, people’s obsession with posting pictures of them).
What really sealed the deal for me is that the Caraway Cookware set offers huge value. You save $100 by buying the set versus each individual pot and pan, and the free storage pieces are the icing on top of the cake.
But as it turns out, this set has both beauty and brains. It fit all my criteria: Caraway pots and pans are made with safe, non-toxic materials that don’t contain the chemicals that leach into food (see ya never, Teflon!). They’re naturally non-stick so I can cook with less butter and oil, plus it makes cleanup a breeze. They’re even oven-safe up to 550 degrees so you can use them for baking, and they’re superior at conducting heat for faster, more even cooking, which makes things even easier for a “meh” cook like me.
Space is a huge issue in my small kitchen, so my ultimate goal was to ditch my dozen or so random pots, pans, and lids for a few versatile pieces. The Caraway Cookware Set includes a fry pan, a saucepan, a saute pan, a Dutch oven, and three coordinating lids — basically, everything I need to make just about anything.
I was particularly blown away with the innovative storage solutions that came with the set: magnetic pot organizers keep everything neatly separated and a canvas lid holder can be hung anywhere convenient, like on your cabinet door (it comes with an adhesive backing and hooks — no need to pull out the drill!). With these clever items, you can keep your cookware organized and easy to access, whether in a cabinet or on your countertop. (And yes, these pieces are so stunning, I don’t mind leaving them out for display). Of course, they also look fantastic when set on the table, too — and the set also includes two cork trivets — which means less servingware to dirty up and clean after your meal.
On top of all this, what really sealed the deal for me is that the Caraway Cookware Set offers huge value. You save $100 by buying the set versus each individual pot and pan, and the free storage pieces are the icing on top of the cake.
I’m just a few days into my love affair with Caraway, but I’m already hooked. Now that I can cook safer, healthier meals for my family — and venture into my cupboard without an avalanche of cookware crashing down on me — I’m not going back. Oh, and I appreciate that my new collection takes a pretty picture, too.
