Non-stick pots and pans always sound too good to be true, and if you’re like me, that’s probably because you’ve been misusing them. When Caraway Home reached out about their four-piece ceramic cookware set, I was admittedly skeptical. I have purchased non-stick pans in the past, but they never seemed to live up to the hype. In testing Caraway Home’s line of pots and pans, I learned that I was partially the problem. Thanks to their educational (and exceptionally organized) packaging, I now know non-stick pans like the ones Caraway offers were designed to give you a better cook without all that heat. See what I mean in my review below.
Caraway Home 4-Piece Cookware Set Review
After trying many a recipe in the Caraway Home cookware set, I can confidently stand behind the brand. I put some of my most stick-worthy recipes to the test including eggs, chicken piccata, sun-dried tomato chicken (we’re big on chicken in this house, OK?), and a brown sugar sauce for a french toast casserole. Neither pot nor pan disappointed when it came to the non-stick surface.
What makes this cookware set great
- Stunning color options
- Comes with storage
- Stovetop agnostic
That non-stick aspect is great when you’re actually cooking, but it’s even better when it comes time to clean up. Gone are the days of scouring pots and pans (which you won’t need to do here, nor should you do because it’ll ruin the non-stick surface!). The Caraway pots and pans should be hand-washed to preserve their integrity, which is easy thanks to that non-stick coating.
In addition to being easy to cook with and clean, the pots and pans Caraway carries are simply beautiful. I keep ours tucked away because our counters are cluttered enough, but if there was one piece of cookware I was going to leave out, it would be this. I have the cream set, but there are many other neutrally toned colors to choose from including Navy, Gray, Sage, and Perracotta, among others.
Overall, if you’re in need of new cookware, give Caraway a shot. These sets are also the perfect gift for the home chef this holiday, as well as ideal for newly engaged couples!
Caraway Home Cookware Set Pros and Cons
No pot nor pan is perfect, but the Caraway Home set is pretty close. Still, as with any cookware, these pots and pans come with a set of pros and cons.
Caraway Home Cookware Pros
- Comes with storage. If you order the set, it comes with a magnetic organization system that fits each pot and pan perfectly. Plus, there’s a heavy-duty canvas organizer for the lids, which can be attached to the back of a cabinet or pantry door for easy storage.
- The cookware is actually non-stick. I put these pots and pans to the test in my kitchen and even without the small amount of butter or oil Caraway suggests using to ensure a non-stick surface, these pots and pans really are non-stick.
Caraway Home Cookware Cons
- The storage system won’t fit in every kitchen. If your kitchen cabinets have pull-out drawers like mine do, you might not be able to fit the pots and pans vertically in them. Fortunately, you can stack them on top of each other with a towel as a buffer to help preserve the non-stick coating. As for the magnetic storage system itself? I’ve used it as a dish drying rack and in my pantry as an organizer instead!
- The pots and pans are hand-wash only. If you’re a clean-as-you-cook chef like I am, this can be quite daunting. But the hand-wash only aspect is easy to get over once you see how incredibly non-stick the surface really is. You’ll want to do anything to preserve it!
