1. Tefal Day by Day Set

Tefal Day by Day Set cookware

Instead of shopping for one item at a time, wouldn’t it be nice to find a set of high-quality cookware with uniformed properties and features? Definitely! So, it’s fantastic that we’ve found Tefal Day by Day Set. This high-quality cookware includes 8 pieces of highly non-stick fry pan, saucepan, stew pot, wok pan, ladle and spatula. What’s great about this set is that the pans and pots aren’t only non-stick on the inside but on the exterior as well, making these extra robust and durable. Featuring a dishwasher safe capability, cleaning the whole set is hassle-free. On top of that, it’s compatible with all hobs and induction. A bit of caution though: They’re not oven safe. So, if you need to finish off a dish in the oven, you need to transfer it to an oven safe pan.

2. Unlimited Grill Pan by Tefal

Unlimited Grill Pan by Tefal cookware

Speaking of oven safe pans, Tefal won’t let us down. If I may place my two cents, I think that Tefal’s Unlimited Grill Pan would be a useful addition to your Day by Day Set. You might do without it but it’s hard to resist its oven compatibility feature of up to 175 degrees Celsius. With this grill pan, you can whip up perfectly browned steaks with beautiful grill marks! If the meat needs some minutes in the oven after searing to achieve the perfect cook on it, as in the case with lamb, this is the pan that can get the job done.

The downside is that it’s not dishwasher safe. But it’s alright, since handwashing doesn’t take much time and effort because of its non-stick coating.

Another standout feature of this grill pan is its Thermo-Signal technology. It’s an indicator that gives a signal that the pan has already reached the optimal temperature. Think about it: perfect searing minus the guesswork. That’s indeed hard to pass up. What’s more, it’s compatible with all stovetops including induction, gas, electric, ceramic and halogen. We’re so excited to use this pan for our fancy steak night or for the most elevated grilled cheese we can whip up!

3. Neoflam Fika Signature 6-piece Bundle

Neoflam Fika Signature 6-piece Bundle cookware

I bet you would agree that this environment-friendly cookware isn’t only great for your culinary adventures but also as a décor on your kitchen’s open shelving. The off-white sand colour finishing has a luxe feel to it, making the whole set effortlessly Instagram-worthy. Flat-lay game strong? Absolutely!

But more than just its minimalistic and sophisticated look, the Neoflam Fika Signature 6-piece Bundle is equipped with premium features you’d hope for in a cookware. It has an enhanced non-stick feature for easy cooking and washing. The body is made of aluminium which enables fast and even heat distribution. It’s compatible with gas, ceramic, electric and induction cooktops, but not recommended for Bosch induction hob.

With proper use and care, this bundle can be your ultimate partner in the kitchen for years. Speaking of which, here’s a bit of precaution: Do not use metal kitchen utensils as these can damage the coating. Recommended utensils are wooden and silicone. But that’s actually an advantage, right? These materials are lightweight, so cooking is less tiring even when you spend hours in the kitchen.

5. Tefal Toast N’ Egg

Tefal Toast N' Egg cookwares

Who wouldn’t love hearty toasts in the morning? They’re quick and easy yet filling and perfect with your favourite espresso. But what makes toasts extra filling are sunny side up eggs, add some bacon, ham or sausage then top it all with melting cheese. For sure, you’ll be more than ready to seize the day. Wouldn’t it be nice though to make things more efficient, especially since we really need to hustle on weekday mornings? Tefal gives a clear, confident answer. That’s none other than this Toast N’ Egg cooker.

As you’ve probably guessed, this cooker allows you to make toasts and a sunny side up egg at the same time. Maybe hubby has to wait for his turn since you can only cook an individual meal at a time, but still, it’s quick, easy, and super-efficient! Better yet, buy another so you can both make your toasts in the morning! Oh, and let me add: this cooker has a meat warmer too. Full English breakfast, anyone?
