Cookware Sets for a Well-Equipped Kitchen

Equip your kitchen for convenient meal prep with one of the cookware sets from Williams Sonoma. There are Calphalon and Le Creuset pots and pans sets, along with exclusive AllClad™ sets and plenty of other options.

Choosing a Pots and Pans Set

Whether you're an avid cook or someone who only cooks occasionally, there's a pot set and pan set to suit your needs. Some of the sets are great for beginners, while others have everything an experienced chef needs to create a wide range of dishes. Here are some features to look for when shopping for cookware:

  • Quantity: The pots and pans sets at Williams Sonoma are available in different sizes. There are two-piece sets and those with more than 30 pieces. Some sets include the lids as part of the quantity, so a four-piece set may contain two pots and two lids.
  • Variety: The type of set you should choose depends on your cooking needs. The most basic of sets comes with saucepots and a frying pan, along with a universal lid. Larger sets may include pieces such as a Dutch oven, soup pot, chicken fryer and pasta pentola, among other items. Some sets come with extras like cookbooks and kitchen tools.
  • Material: When shopping for pots and pans, one of the most important things to consider is the material. Stainless steel is one option to consider, as it's durable, fast-heating and easy to clean. Nonstick cookware is popular because it's designed so that food releases smoothly and easily. Some cooks prefer cast iron, a virtually indestructible material that can last for years.
  • Color: Although color is a strictly cosmetic issue, it may still be a consideration when shopping for cookware. The sets at Williams Sonoma come in an array of finishes and colors to enhance the look of your kitchen. If you like the gleam of metal, choose silver or copper. To impart a vibrant touch to the room, choose an enameled set in a bright color such as red, orange or blue.

Accessories for Cookware Sets

Williams Sonoma also has accessories to go with your set, such as cooking utensils and potholders. There are also kitchen linens for washing and drying your pots and pans. Browse the selection of cookware sets and accessories to find the right pieces for your kitchen. Pots and pans sets also make a great gift, so you may want to pick up an extra set for an upcoming birthday or holiday.
