We hate to break it to you, but your nonstick cookware might not be as user-friendly as you think. Polytetrafluoroethylene (try saying that five times fast) is in 95% of nonstick pans, and after only 2.5 minutes of being heated, these pans can start releasing that chemical into your eggs. But Caraway’s nonstick, nontoxic ceramic pots and pans emit 60% less carbon dioxide than their competitors, and don’t include the harmful chemicals found in traditional nonstick cookware. Plus, ceramic pans are naturally slick, which makes for easy cleanup. If all that weren’t compelling enough, Caraway doesn’t ship with any single-use plastic and has partnered with ethical manufacturers. Each Caraway cookware set comes with its own thoughtful storage solution, and there’s enough color choices that you’ll surely find something to match your kitchen, no matter your taste.
Why we love them
Once just practical essentials, kitchen cookware has quickly become an opportunity to decorate one of the rooms where you undoubtedly spend the most time. At the top of our shopping list is the Caraway Home set, which includes a fry pan, saucepan, sauté pan, and Dutch oven. It even comes with a nifty pan rack to make storage simple, plus a canvas lid holder to keep toppers organized. With color-cohesive linens to match, Caraway has everything you need to turn your kitchen into an oasis. KCM’s Lisa says the navy Fry Pan is the perfect compliment to her kitchen, and our colleague Alissa agrees. It’s a focal point in her new apartment. Stylish and nontoxic, these pans are the perfect gift for the newlyweds in your life — or for yourself. Either way, they’ll be the gift that keeps on giving for years to come.
