Turn your oven into a backyard grill when you find a rectangular skinny grill in affordable cookware. These devices cover either one or two burners on top of your stove, giving you the experience of grilling on a barbecue pit, but indoors. The enameled cast-iron construction does not require any seasoning of the pan. Because of the all-metal design, the grill goes under the broiler, allowing you to finish off your meats to a perfect crisp.
When cooking large dishes in the oven, make sure you have a Dutch oven that can handle the job. A Dutch oven made of aluminum disperses heat evenly, making sure your dishes cook the same throughout. Dutch ovens with glass lids let you inspect inside of the dish to gauge progress without losing any of the heat or moisture. A nonstick interior makes cleaning up after a long baking session easy. This type of affordable cookware works well when making stews and chilies, but can also handle a whole chicken.
If your family goes through a lot of starches like potatoes and pastas, then a multi-pot is an affordable cookware deal you can’t pass up. These sets come with large stockpots for boiling, while the insert easily lifts out, leaving you with the finished food. If you need to cook a dish with low heat, then a double boiler gives you the best results. Find a double boiler that lets you add water through the handle to allow for controlled cooking progress.
Every household needs a good set of frying pans for daily use. Find a set of affordable cookware with a range of sizes to tackle several jobs in the kitchen. You also need a sauté pan with a lid to create dishes such as risottos and casseroles that require constant stirring. A sauté pan with a tempered glass lid lets you monitor the progress of the dish, while one with a metal handle lets you transfer it to the oven to finish it off and get a crispy crust on top of dishes such as macaroni and cheese. Nonstick fry pans allow you to avoid the overuse of oils and butter when frying up potatoes, helping you lead a healthier lifestyle
After dinner, let guests enjoy a soothing glass of hot tea or instant coffee brewed using a stove-top kettle. These stainless-steel, copper or aluminum kettles heat up quickly when placed on the burner, and give you the classic kettle whistle when they are finished boiling. You can also please guests with one of the best cups of coffee they have ever had when you make it using an authentic French press. These devices let you add grounds to them, add water and then plunge down to create an exceptionally strong brew.
Some of our affordable cookware items may seem like novelties, but once you use them you will never know how you lived without them. The stainless-steel asparagus pot boils the vegetable right on the stove top, making sure to cook the bottom parts longer to get them as tender as the tops. A trivet lets you take your beautiful cookware straight from the oven, and then place it safely on the table for presentation and serving. And a butter crock lets you you’re your butter on the counter so it is soft and spreadable, yet the crock chills your butter at the same time to keep it fresh outside of the refrigerator.
