Berndes Cookware

Your search for eco-friendly, high-performance cookware ends when you purchase a cookware set from our Berndes cookware collection at Williams-Sonoma. We select Berndes as one of our international manufacturers because the company knows what it’s doing when it comes to quality cookware. The German company has been in business since 1921 and offered its first nonstick pans for sale in 1950. Berndes cookware includes the lustrous white Vario Click Pearl Induction cookware that works on any cooktop and with any kitchen decor. We also offer Berndes cast-aluminum cookware in a charcoal hue. These pieces are made with stainless-steel diffusers to cook everyday meals and specialty dishes evenly.


The creamy white finish on the nonstick ceramic Vario Click Pearl pieces is easy to clean. The woks and Dutch ovens allow you to achieve low-fat cooking with their superior heating performance and nonstick surfaces. You use less oil, butter or fat to get better results. When you remove the resin handles, pieces can handle temperatures up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven or broiler as long as you keep the glass lids out of the high heat. Glass lids can handle temperatures up to 375 F. With that kind of cooking range, you’re able to sear meat, fish and poultry like a professional chef. You finish dishes under the broiler without sacrificing lesser pans or worrying about cleanup of your better cookware.


Choose one good fry pan or a complete set of our Berndes fry pans and skillets for happy breakfast and dinner cooking experiences. Berndes fry pans and skillets have removable handles for versatility and convenient storage. Handles have convenient holes for hanging on the wall or a rack. Berndes ceramic nonstick fry pans and skillets have the signature pearl finish that's scratch- and stain-proof. The German-made pans are free of perfluorooctanoic acid, polytetrafluoroethylene, perfluorooctanesulfonic acid and cadmium for your peace of mind. Create breakfast delights featuring French toast, sausages, eggs and fried potatoes on these bright pans with minimal need for oils and fats and maximum browning action when you want it most. Berndes large skillets are ideal for one-pan meals because they keep dishes hot after cooking easily. This is a bonus feature when you have diners who get distracted on their way to the table.


If you’re searching for an ideal sauté pan or two, the Berndes Cookware collection includes several styles and sizes of sauté pans, including casseroles with lids and molded handles. If you want a traditional sauté pan, Berndes sauté pans work with induction or traditional stoves and the ceramic nonstick sauté pans also feature the removable phenolic resin handles that let you pop the sauté pans in the oven to keep warm, finish baking or brown dishes under the broiler.


Select Berndes cast-aluminum sauciers and saucepans when you want the ease of evenly heated sauces and glazes and fast cleanup. Sauciers and saucepans are made with heat-conducting stainless-steel diffusers in their bases that evenly distribute the low, medium and high temperatures on your cooktop or inside your oven. Make reductions, risotto or ramen in your saucepans and sauciers with no scorching or hot spots.


After experiencing the versatility and performance of Berndes Cookware, you’ll want more pieces finished in the state-of-the-art ceramic coating. When you opt for an entire cookware set, which includes items like skillets, sauciers, Dutch ovens and sauté pans for a complete Berndes collection, you will want to display your cookware on a pot rack between uses. All lids that come with cookware pieces and sets are made of tempered glass and have stainless-steel handles that are large and ergonomically styled for safe handling even with oven mitts.
