Non-stick coating: The best cookware sets will have a non-stick coating. It’s not really worth buying a cookware set that doesn’t. Non-stick coating saves time, energy, ensures your cookware set will last longer, requires you to use less oil/butter and makes it much easier to cook pretty much everything.

Number of pieces: How many pieces does your non-stick saucepan set have? Most sets come with six, eight, ten or twelves pieces. At the very minimum, you should have a smaller frying pan for fried eggs or similar, a larger frying pan for dishes like curries and bolognese, a large sauce pan for reheating and simmering and a small sauce pan for quick and easy tasks.

Weight: Try and opt for a cookware set that’s of medium weight. Lightweight cookware sets will likely be less durable and get too hot too quickly, while super heavy cookware sets might be difficult to lift.

What are the handles made from? Opt for a cookware set with handles coated in silicone or similar, if your budget stretches. They’ll feel more comfortable and will generally stay cooler.

What is the best brand of saucepans?

The best saucepan set for those short of space is the Tefal Ingenio Expertise Non-Stick Pan Set. The Ingenio range comes with a removable handle which attaches to each of the the various pan sizes with one simple click. When the handle is detached, all of the pans can fit together for easy storage — and you can even use the bases as storage containers in the fridge. Every pan is made from 18/10-grade stainless steel, and they each have thick, aluminium bases for safe and easy cooking. The edges make pouring a breeze, and the pans are oven-safe up to 260 degrees without the handles.

Elsewhere, the best non-stick cookware set is this GreenPan saucepan set. The 13 piece (! ) set includes a frying pan, saucepans, colander, spoons and spaghetti server. They boast the most advanced non-stick technology on the market, plus a Thermolon Infinity coating which is 100% toxin-free at any temperature. They also have a unique magnetic coating on the base which guarantees stability when cooking. Any downsides? It’s not dishwasher safe.

How does the GLAMOUR star rating system work?

1/5 — Not one you’re likely to see in our guides, as we aim to curate a buying guide of only the best selections. That said, a 1/5 score would mean the pan set fails on value for money, quality, performance and how buyers rated it.
2/5 — Again, not likely to be included in our buying guides, a 2/5 would mean the pan set is disappointing across most factors, perhaps excelling in one area e. g. non-stick quality.
3/5 — A 3/5 would mean the pans are just ok, perhaps a good selection if you’re on a more modest budget, but leaves room for a better spec. For instance, this could be a pan set that is useable if you don’t cook much, but will lose its coating over time.
4/5 — A 4/5 would mean the pans are near exceptional, with faults only small and easy to ignore. For instance, a pan set that ticks all the boxes, but has a high price point.
5/5 — A 5/5 rating means the product, website and company are all flawless. We will never give a product a five-star rating if it has a single problem that we’re aware of, so look out for these, they’re rather rare!
