Buying Kitchen Necessities

Kitchen necessities

A few sturdy pots and pans can go a long way as you build the interior of your kitchen cabinets.

If you choose to forgo buying a set, Reluctant Gourmet recommends starting with a saute pan, a sauce pan and a stock pot. The saute pan can be used for preparing meats and vegetables while doubling as a frying pan. The sauce pan can be used for boiling pasta and making the sauce, and the third piece can work for soups or producing large quantities of food. The rest can come together as you figure out your needs as a chef.

 

Noncoated or nonstick?

There isn’t a “right” answer for the type of material to look for in your pots and pans.

Nonstick cookware is popular because it is easier to clean, according to Consumer Reports, but noncoated cookware typically will be more durable.

Aluminum pots and pans are good for evenly distributing heat, while stainless steel pans often do the opposite. Teflon and other nonstick pans cannot be used with metal utensils. Consumer Reports also recommends looking into the material of the handles. Metal handles can get very hot, while plastic handles will be better on hands but won’t withstand oven heat higher than 350 degrees.

 

Caring for you cookware

Cookware is an investment, but sturdy pots and pans can last for years and more than make up for the money spent. However, these pieces require care and attention if you want to use them for their full lifespan.

Most types of cookware should be hand-washed in warm, soapy water rather than put in the dishwasher. With nonstick material, such as Teflon, make sure the sponge you use is labeled as safe for nonsticks to avoid scratching the surface of the piece.

 

Building your collection

Three key pieces can go a long way, but if you find you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you may want to consider additional pieces.

If you’re only cooking for one or two — or want to make smaller quantities — a smaller sauce pan might be a good investment. A good frying pan or skillet will go a long way in your collection. Purchasing these pieces separately will allow you to try different materials and shop for pieces that fit your cooking needs.
