Most Expensive & Popular Cookware Sets

most expensive cookware sets

As a foodie and a food magazine owner, I really enjoy having a good set of pots and pans. Cookware is a valuable investment—just ask any professional chef. When treated well, high quality cookware doesn’t just last a lifetime. It can be one of the best multi-generational gifts that you can give yourself.


Needless to say, people in the food industry (and culinary writers like me) are majorly obsessed with expensive cookware. But, what is the most expensive cookware out there?


Cookware doesn’t have to be expensive, but if you want to get the kind of cookware that chefs use, you may need to shell out serious cash. Here’s why some sets will be more expensive than others.


Number of Pieces

This should be a no-brainer, but the more cookware you’re getting in a set, the more you’re going to have to pay. Making three pots will always cost more than making two. So, quantity matters. If you want to keep quality but have a budget, consider getting a smaller cookware set.


Material + Engineering

There is a difference between Teflon that you get from the grocery store and specially engineered stainless steel alloys. The most expensive cookware sets are made with the best materials. In many (but not all) cases, top rated companies will also have special engineering put into the cookware they make.

The engineering and materials have a major perk to your cooking results. The better these two factors are, the more evenly your cookware will heat your food. Additionally, it can cut down on cleaning time and improve durability. It’s important to note that some materials, like copper, will be heavily impacted by the price of raw goods.


Brand

Some brand names are more popular than others among the cooking elite, and that matters a lot. Much of the appeal of certain brands comes from their track record of making great quality cookware. When you’re working in a kitchen or have your name on the line when you cook, you’re going to want to get the security that comes with a good name.


Artisan Craftsmanship

It’s extremely rare to see cookware of any sort that involves handmade items. To a point, it’s almost a lost art. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. More often than not, artisan crafts like this will fetch a premium price and can only be found through specialty dealers. As such, we didn’t include many on this list because they are so exclusive.
