Some people absolutely love to cook, entertain and have people over for celebrations, holidays and sometimes simply because it’s Friday night. Entertaining is rewarding but can be a bit stressful. Having the right tools and equipment on hand is one of the keys to making delicious food, time and time again. Bring a little bit of the taste of Italy into your home with a selection of cookware by Lagostina. First founded in 1901 in Omegna, Italy by Carlo Lagostina and his son Emilio, Lagostina Cookware has been a long-standing staple of quality and durability. One of the pioneers in the making of stainless-steel cookware, the Lagostina brand not only offers durability and quality, but beautiful, artful designs that make perfect additions to your busy kitchen.
If you are in the middle of replenishing and replacing some of your older kitchen equipment, or simply are building your kitchen tools from scratch, a 10-piece cookware from Lagostina is a brilliant idea. This cookware set offers a triple threat where durability is concerned, with a construction comprised of not only stainless-steel, but copper and aluminum. Long known as the best conductor of heat when it comes to cookware, the addition of copper in this cookware set ensures that you will get even heating throughout. In addition, the 18/10 stainless-steel interior and aluminum core renders these pieces heat resistant, so you are able to use them for years without warping or damage. The riveted stainless-steel handles are constructed so you don’t risk burns, and the entire set is oven and broiler safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This lets you expand your dishes to make food that requires searing followed by broiling or baking. Included in the set are two frying pans, two saucepans with lids, one deep sauté pan with a lid and one stockpot with an included lid. All of the lids also feature a stainless-steel construction.
Part of the European Cookware Collection exclusively available from Williams-Sonoma, Lagostina cookware has some specialty items that add a lot of function to your kitchen ensemble. Liven up stews and soups with a durable and handy stewpot. Ideal for cooking dishes such as minestrone or polenta, this stainless-steel pot features a curved bottom that prevents sticking while promoting water absorption. This pot is ideal for any cooktop situation, including induction cooking, and comes with a tight-fitting lid with knob. Also included with the stewpot are handy utensils, a solid ash polenta stick and a stainless-steel ladle.
For making other specialty dishes such as risotto, opt for a Lagostina risotto pan. Offering a 4-quart capacity, this pan has a trademarked LAGOPLAN base that combines both aluminum and stainless-steel for even and rapid cooking. Cast stainless-steel handles also provide an even, sturdy grip, and the tight-fitting lid is constructed of cherry wood and stainless-steel, locking in moisture and flavor. Made in Italy, this piece of international cookware is dishwasher-safe, and easy to clean and maintain. Those interested in making other specialty dishes, such as pastaiola, should consider Lagostina’s pastaiola pot. A stainless-steel construction makes this a durable piece, and the included spaghetti measure and pasta fork makes cooking and serving easier for you.
For stove-top pressure cooking, Lagostina also offers a 7.5-quart pressure cooker with included steamer basket. A removable lid allows you to serve food stove-to-table with minimal effort, and the included recipe book and BPA-free measuring cup make cooking a bit more seamless. Those who would like to grill during the winter months on their stove top should also consider Lagostina’s 11-inch round grill pan. Cook everything from steaks to chicken breasts with ease on this stainless-steel, durable grill pan.
