Lockdowns across the country have meant many of us have spent more time in the kitchen in the last 18 months than ever before. Using the right tools when you're cooking can make the difference between a stressful event and an enjoyable experience.
Here's some of the best cookware you can get your hands on:
Known for its non-stick coating, Tefal is a premium brand that's reasonably priced. The Ultimate Non-Stick Induction 6pc Cookware Set, reduced to $399.97 from $799.95, is a great kit if you need several new pots and pans.
It includes two different sized frypans, a saucepan, stewpot, wok and sauté pan. It is coated with the extra-resistant titanium non-stick coating that lasts up to three times longer than Tefal's standard coating.
It also has the latest Thermo-Fusion induction technology for fast, even cooking, and Thermo-Signal technology that changes colour at the optimal temperature to begin cooking - so you can get it right every time.
Their Ultimate Non-Stick Induction Wok, $69.97, will fast become one of your staple kitchen utensils. Its extra deep shape means it's ideal for stir fries and doesn't spill. It has superior induction technology, and a resilient non-stick coating.
Not only is premium French cookware brand Le Creuset very Instagram friendly, it's functional and durable too.
Their pots and pans are made from cast iron which evenly and efficiently retains heat. They come with a lifetime warranty, and are now available in almost any colour you can imagine.
You'll never regret investing in their Signature Round Casserole dish, $440. You can cook almost anything in - from casseroles and stews to bread.
It comes with large handles for ease, and an easy to clean enamel interior. The Heritage Rectangular Dish, from $85.00 to $110.00, was originally designed for traditionally French dishes such as Gratin Dauphinois, but is also ideal for baking things such as lasagnes, shepherd's pie and bread and butter pudding.
Plenty of pans are non-stick, but Greenlife's non-stick coating is free from sand and chemicals, which creates 60% less CO2 emissions than traditional coatings during the curing phase.
Their pans are made from recycled aluminium, and 30% of their factory’s energy comes from solar panels. They have a huge range of pans in cool colours - at very reasonable prices.
This 16-piece soft-grip cookware set is just $99. It includes three different sized frypans, two saucepans with lids, a saute pan and lid, a stockpot with lid, a stainless steel steamer and four kitchen utensils.
All the items are non-stick, and have a 'soft grip' which is an ergonomic, stay-cool handle. The collection comes in six colours, including black, pink, green and lavender.
Their mini egg pan, $9.99, is ideal for cooking the perfect eggs. It has all the same features as their regular sized pans but is small enough that eggs don't spread out too far. Brekky here we come.
This is the biggest Aussie cookware brand for a reason. All their products come with a lifetime guarantee, and they have a wide range of products to suit different budgets.
The granite grill pan, $69.99, gives the effect of cooking on a hot stone - you don't need oil to use it which means it's a great option for healthy, fat-free meals.
It's made from durable cast aluminium, which gives even and rapid heat distribution, is non-stick, and and has a scratch-resistant surface. The gourmet stainless steel double boiler, $49.99, is great if you're a big dessert cook; it's ideal for melting chocolate, making custard or preparing fondue. It has a steam vent, tempered glass lid and stay-cool stainless steel handles.
