Marie Claire’s List Of The 10 Best Nonstick Cookware Sets. And we’re on it!

“Having at least one nonstick pan is essential in every cook’s kitchen, from the most professional to the very beginners. It’s almost impossible to make eggs without one, they make pan searing fish a lot easier, and they keep pancakes from tearing apart in the pan. Our favorite nonstick pans were the ones that could do it all, from cooking an egg with no oil, to searing a steak and being able to pop it in the dishwasher after. Below are our favorite nonstick pans, including top-tested picks, editor favorites, and new releases with innovative features that make cooking easy.”

4) Farberware Hard Anodized 14-Piece Cookware Pots and Pans Set

We’re all about pots and pans that look chic, but get the job done. Faberware’s Hard Anodized Nonstick Set features high-performing pots and pans that’ll cook your food quickly and evenly. The pans have sturdy stainless steel handles that’ll make moving them from the stove to the oven (they’re oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit) easy as pie.

5) Anolon Advanced 12-Piece Hard-Anodized Non-Stick Cookware Set

In previous tests, we were very impressed with Anolon’s ability to distribute heat evenly, maintain a steady simmer, and make scrambled eggs without oil. We also liked how their silicone-covered stainless steel handles stayed cool to the touch during cooking. Since we reviewed the Anolon 82693 Advanced Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Pots and Pans Set, the set was changed a little to include updated shapes — the small sauce pan with pour spout is a favorite!

We continue to like how the handles feel in our hand and how easy the pots and pans are to move around. We also like the large sauteé pan with rounded edges, which gives a lot of surface area for browning and makes a good pot for simmering. The set is Teflon-free.

8) Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set

The Rachael Ray Hard Anodized pans (made without Teflon) landed high scores in our tests for heat distribution and staining. They also scored high for easy release and browning. The two small pots are great for boiling eggs and heating soups, and the silicone-grip handles make moving them around easy. They’re a popular seller on Amazon with colors like red, light blue, and orange. The slotted spoon and fish spatula are a useful bonus.
