The Best Cookware Brands for Home Chefs

Misen Cookware Dutch Over
The first step to shopping for new cookware is finding companies you can trust. The best cookware brands use high-quality materials and innovative designs. They're committed to developing products that deliver reliable performance in the kitchen.

We've gathered a comprehensive list of the best cookware brands for every kitchen in this guide. From the leaders in the field to the fresh faces, these brands are dedicated to making your time in the kitchen more enjoyable.

The Best Direct-to-Consumer Cookware Brands

Behind every fantastic cooking set is a reputable company that cares about its products and customers. Keep reading to learn about some of the best. 


Misen Pan

Misen was born in 2015 in New York when it launched a Kickstarter and raised over $1.7 million to bring its direct-to-consumer vision to life. Since its launch, Misen has been endorsed by multiple media outlets, and it has gained nearly 70,000 followers on Instagram. Misen cookware is designed for anyone who loves to cook, from professional chefs to home cooks, with everyone in between. 

The brand name "Misen" comes from the French culinary term "mise en place" (pronounced MEEZ-ahn-plahs), meaning to put in place. Part of mise en place is to have the right tools ready before you need to cook, and Misen's motto is that "people should have access to quality tools at affordable prices. Because no matter your skill level, quality kitchen tools will help you cook better."

Why Misen?

  • Misen offers a wide range of cookware and kitchenware. 
  • Prices are kept low by selling directly to the customer, cutting out the middlemen.
  • Products are made with high-quality materials and put through a rigorous testing process. 
  • Thoughtful designs are made to enhance usability.
  • All Misen nonstick surfaces are PFOA-free.
  • All products come with a free 60-day return policy and a lifetime warranty.

Our Top Picks from Misen

The Nonstick Pan and Dutch Oven are two Misen products worth checking out — we've reviewed both here at Living Cozy. The Nonstick Pan comes in three sizes and features an ergonomic stay-cool handle. And the 7 qt. Dutch Oven boasts a unique griddle lid that doubles as an oven-safe grill pan. Read our Misen Nonstick and Carbon Steel Pan review here and our Dutch Oven review here.

What Our Reviewer Says

"Perfect for sautéing, the 10" Nonstick Pan has been my go-to every morning for cooking breakfast since the minute I unboxed it," said our reviewer Alexandra Frost. "And stays out through lunch and dinner as well, due to its versatility, usability, and straightforward, high-quality design."

Made In

Made In Cookware

Made In is another startup that joined the ever-expanding direct-to-consumer marketplace in 2017 from Austin, Texas. It was founded by a pair of brothers, Chip and Jake, whose family has a 100-year history in the industry. The brothers partnered with manufacturers in Italy, France, and the United States to create superior kitchen products. As a result, the brand has received endorsements from media outlets such as Business Insider and Forbes. 

Made In is now used in hotel groups and 3-star Michelin restaurants throughout America and with good reason. They specialize in producing top-performing 5-ply stainless steel-clad cookware for half the price of their competitors. "Ply" refers to the number of metal layers along the sides and base of the cookware, creating cladding, which promotes efficient and even heating. 

Why Made In?

  • Each Made In product is engineered for high performance and durability.
  • Made In products cost half the price of similar products from other premium cookware brands.
  • The Made In blog and website offers guides on caring for their cookware.
  • Made In uses high-quality carbon steel and stainless steel materials. 
  • Nonstick surfaces are PFOA-free. 
  • Returns and exchanges are accepted 45 days from the delivery date, with return shipping costs in the contiguous US covered. 
  • Products are covered with a lifetime warranty. 

Our Top Picks from Made In

Made In has an extensive catalog of cookware, kitchenware, and even cookbooks, but we recommend checking out the Carbon Steel Wok and Stainless Clad Frying Pan. The Carbon Steel Wok boasts a naturally slick surface that can withstand high heat, which is the secret to the best stir fry recipes out there. And the Stainless Clad Frying Pan is oven-safe up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit with an ergonomic stay-cool handle and 5-ply surface. Both are safe to use with metal utensils.

Abbio Cookware

Abbio is another newcomer to the direct-to-consumer market, offering high-quality products designed by brothers Johnathan and Ergon Wahl. The brand aims to simplify its catalog by offering only five products, which the founders believe are the core components of a practical kitchen. By distilling an otherwise crowded product category into five core components -- a single quality cookware set -- with affordable prices, Abbio helps you get straight to the point. 

Abbio is short for "abbiocco," the Italian word for that satisfied, drowsy, and happy feeling after a big meal. The brand's mission is to "inspire others to create their home-cooked memories." Their guiding principles include community, simplicity, and value, and we think they're doing a great job. 

  • Abbio approaches all products with the quality over quantity mindset. 
  • The brand made high-quality cookware using tri-ply stainless steel and aluminum materials for even heat distribution. 
  • All nonstick pans are PFOA- and Teflon-free and safe for use over high heat. 
  • Prices are kept low by selling directly to the customer, cutting out the middlemen.
  • Each product features a 30-day return policy. 
  • All products are covered by a 1-year warranty. 

Our Top Picks from Abbio

With just five streamlined products, it's hard to go wrong with Abbio cookware. We suggest checking out the Nonstick Skillet or treating yourself to The Stainless Set to start. The Nonstick Skillet is oven safe to 450˚ with a long-lasting PFOA-free coating and an ergonomic handle. The Stainless Steel Cookware Set includes the Stock Pot with Lid, Sauté Pan with Lid, and the Sauce Pan with Lid, and each piece is designed to last a lifetime. 

What They Say

"Many consumers tend to think more is more in terms of cookware. While developing Abbio, we quickly realized that most home cooks only need a handful of cookware pieces," explained Eric Wahl in an interview with Living Cozy. "We developed our 8-piece Set to serve the needs of the average home cook. Some may want to supplement their Abbio with specialty equipment, but we'll never try and sell you a product you don't need."

"After cooking my first meal with Caraway's Cookware Set, I realized I probably will never need cooking spray again. By nonstick, they mean seriously nonstick, not just a little you wonder if a frying egg will stay in the pan as you swish it around."

It's lighter and smoother than your average cast iron pan, with a naturally nonstick surface. Cast iron skillets work well for frying, sauteing, roasting, and searing. The more you cook on your skillet, the more nonstick the seasoning will become (especially with foods like bacon, roasted vegetables, or anything fried).

Ensembl Cookware

Ensembl was founded by Kate Swanson, a former lawyer whose struggle with storage space inspired her brand. Between 2012 and 2018, Kate practiced at a global law firm and lived the apartment life. After living in six different apartments, each of which seemed to have worse storage than the previous one, Kate developed and patented a removable handle to bring her cookware brand to life. 

Today, Ensembl sells a collection of high-performance cookware known as Stackware. And according to Kate, it's only the beginning. The brand is guided by three core principles: radical improvement, form as function, and consciously creating.

The Best Legacy Cookware Brands

Despite the ever-growing number of direct-to-consumer brands on the market, legacy brands still maintain a loyal customer base. And with good reason. Not only are they easy to find, but these time-tested brands boast perfected product lines and a history of reliability. 


All-Clad Cookware

All-Clad has become the industry standard for clad stainless steel cookware. Their products are high-quality and time-tested, and they're still made in the US. All-Clad sells tri-ply stainless steel cookware with an aluminum core, known as the D3 line, in addition to the copper core, hard-anodized nonstick, enameled carbon steel, and several other lines. 

All-Clad was founded in 1971 by John Ulam, a renowned metallurgist with over 75 metal crafting patents and an avid home cook. Ulam bonded layers of stainless steel with aluminum and shaped his creation into pans, giving birth to All-Clad cookware and the cladding process used throughout the industry today. This newly bonded surface didn't alter flavors or warp, and as a bonus, it was easy to clean. So, John Ulam raised the company and opened a factory near his hometown in Western Pennsylvania soon after.

  • All-Clad sources and manufactures their cookware in the US.
  • Experience manufacturing multi-clad cookware since 1971.

Le Creuset was founded in 1925 by French Artisans Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq. In 1925, cookware was typically grey or black and completely practical.

Expertly crafted with everyday versatility, the Round Dutch oven can handle everything from braising and roasting to frying and more.

T-Fal Cookware

T-Fal was founded in 1956 by Marc Grégoire, the creator of nonstick cookware. Grégoire was inspired by his wife, who requested that he coat her pots and pans in the same nonstick materials he used for his fishing gear. The results revolutionized the way we cook today, making life easier for chefs everywhere. Today, T-Fal sells a wide range of cookware, kitchen appliances, accessories, and more. 

T-Fal brought many innovations to the home goods market. In addition to the cordless iron, the brand developed a trademarked Thermo-Spot. The Thermo-Spot indicates when the pan has reached a high enough temperature for use by becoming solid red. What better way to support new home cooks?
