I have just helped my little sister (not that much little though) to shift in her own apartment. She was anxious over the amount of money she would have to spend on the kitchenware and groceries to fend for her. And I understood exactly what she meant when I saw her purchasing things at the supermarket. She was buying similar items from different manufacturers just because she thought that they might taste different. And let me tell you she doesn’t have that much cash on her and repents later. Hence, I thought to help her out and along with that my readers too.
Whenever you set out to buy a cookware, make sure that you buy only those things that you will put to use and not just let sit in your kitchens. Make a list of the things you consume in a week or month including the ones you order from restaurants. This will show all those things which you need to cook and need cookware for. This way you will end up saving a lot more and buy only those things which will be useful for you.
The next step will be to check the material of the cookware which you think is the best for you. If you are a chef, then you just can’t bear with a single pot in your kitchen. You will require a copper one, another one of cast iron and a stainless steel one for the veggies. If, however, you are a novice but love cooking then you might be satisfied with the stainless steel cookware or the non-stick one which will be apt for learning, will be durable, will be cleaned easily for the very first fiascos in making dishes and easy to handle too. If you are an average cook, you will find that having some pieces of stainless steel and non-stick cookware with a pot of either copper or cast iron will be enough. Hence, you see, you just cannot take inspiration from the kitchen of some other person to buy the cookware.
Finally, check the balance of cost and quality. Specify a range of money you are able to shell out, and then search the best cookware set in that range. Every person has a different perspective towards the quality and the price of the commodities. Some aim for the cheap articles and some aim for quantity rather than quality. While some people only go for the quality and tend to buy things one by one but only the good ones. No judgements, for anyone, but investing money on a cookware which will serve you for ages will be better than buying some cheap cookware which will be good for a few months.
This was all that I told my sister and now sharing with you. Hope this helps you with buying the cookware suiting you the best.
