Easy organizing: Kitchen cookware

Sort and keep or toss

Toss lids with loose handles, especially those that stay wobbly even after you try to tighten them — they could detach dangerously, mid-boil. Replace with a one-size-fits-all lid, like Nordic
Ware’s universal model, $15.Keep only cookware you really use. You can whip up almost any meal with three skillets (8-, 10-, and 12-inch), two saucepans (2- and 4-quart), a 6-quart Dutch oven, and an 8-quart
stockpot. And for baking or roasting, two cookie sheets or jelly-roll pans, two 9-inch cake pans, an 8-inch square brownie pan, a 13×9-inch baking pan, and a glass pie plate will do.

Toss poorly working pots. Cookware that isn’t heating food evenly could be warped, dented, or losing its finish. Definitely ditch scratched or flaking nonstick pieces.
