Anyone who spends time in the kitchen can agree: good pots and pans make all the difference. Whether you’re whipping up some scrambled eggs for breakfast or reducing balsamic for a healthy weeknight dinner, nothing can make or break your cooking experience quite like the cookware you are using. You may be a stainless steel fan, or maybe a die-hard cast iron lover, but no matter what you’re cooking up, there is no more enjoyable pan than a nonstick. These days, with so many non-toxic options we don’t have to worry about sacrificing health for ease. And with so many different sets out there, let’s be honest: it’s hard to choose! So we’ve rounded up some of the best nonstick cookware sets out there for you. Psst…some of them are even on sale!

GreenPan Chatham 12-pc. Set

It could be argued that GreenPan began the safe nonstick revolution back in 2007, changing the way we thought about cooking and eating by showing us that ceramic coating could not only be much safer for the human body, but also did the job just as well as the plastics used in “traditional” nonstick cookware.

While these innovators have tons of sets to choose from, this 12-piece Chatham Set is one of their best-selling options. A true powerhouse, the set is constructed with an aluminum core pressed between stainless steel, and is compatible with all cooktops – it’s even broiler-safe. Plus, the 3-ply construction compounded with GreenPan’s trademark chemical-free surface ensures they will distribute heat quickly and effectively no matter if you’re making fried rice or grilled cheese. GreenPan has labeled these pans as “metal-utensil safe,” and although we never recommend metal utensils on any nonstick surface, this is a true testament to the set’s diamond-infused Thermolon surface.

This family-owned cookware brand has set itself apart not only in partnering with world-famous chefs to create restaurant-quality pots and pans, but in working directly with raw-material providers to craft their cookware with the very best materials at the lowest possible price. So, much like Made In’s stainless clad or carbon steel, their nonstick line is meant to last and to perform above all other cookware in your kitchen. Their seven-piece set is complete with a fry pan, saucepan, saute pan, and stockpot as well as corresponding tops. The 5-ply stainless steel pieces are coated with two layers of PFOA-free, PTFE coating that transfers heat evenly and consistently, so no matter if you are frying up some eggs or searing some salmon, your food will slide out of the pan with ease.
