Paula Deen Cookware Review

I love my new kitchen cookware set!

I had been needing a new set of kitchen cookware long before Christmas of 2010. It’s just one of those things I’d been putting off. Although I love to cook, I didn’t have any matching cookware sets – my kitchen cookware consisted of miss-matched pots and pans. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’d had several actual cookware sets in the past, but after several moves, many of the pieces had been lost over the years. I think some had also been loaned to friends and relatives and never returned. Anyway, with Christmas coming up, I decided that new kitchen cookware would go on my Christmas list.

Cookware sets

I began searching the stores for cookware sets, and I even read a few cookware reviews. The number of choices was mind boggling, but at least I was able to narrow the field down some by color. We had just recently remodeled our kitchen, and the best cookware for me would have to be red. I discovered that there aren’t a lot of red cookware sets. What was the best cookware that came in red and was also affordable?

One day, after reading some more cookware reviews, I found that some commenters stated that Paula Deen cookware was the best cookware they’d ever had. Of course, I had to check out the Paula Deen cookware for myself. I did, and I really liked the looks of her cookware sets. It came in several colors, including the exact shade of red I needed for my new kitchen. The price was very affordable, too, so on my Christmas list it went. I wasn’t sure I’d get the coveted kitchen cookware, but I’d been a very good girl, so I was hopeful.

In fact, I liked the Paula Deen cookware so much that I bought a set to give to my youngest daughter for Christmas. She didn’t have any cookware sets that matched, either. Since she uses a lot of blue in her kitchen and dining room, I got the blue set for her.

On Christmas Eve at my house, amidst the chaos of eight grandchildren and eight adults distributing and opening gifts, I was presented with a large wrapped box. I crossed my fingers, hoping it was the Paula Deen cookware, and it was! And it was even the right color.

The best cookware ever!

As I already stated, I really enjoy cooking, so I was psyched about using my new kitchen cookware. It didn’t take me long to realize that I loved my Paula Deen cookware! In fact, it’s the best cookware I’ve ever owned.

Why do I consider the Paula Deen cookware sets to be the best cookware I’ve ever had? There are several reasons. I won’t deny that part of the reason I chose this particular kitchen cookware was a superficial one – I really liked how it looked. The color was perfect, and for some reason I really like the copper accents around the handle knobs on top of the lids. When I began actually using the pots and pans, however, I discovered that Paula Deen cookware is much more than just a pretty face, so to speak.

The pots are heavy and durable, and so are the handles. All the handles are also insulated, so I don’t have to worry about getting burned. At first, I was a little concerned about this because of the copper rings, but it’s not a problem. The handles stay comfortably cool. I also love the clear glass lids. I can take a peak at what I’m cooking without having to remove the lid. The Paula Deen pots and pans also heat up quickly and evenly, even on my electric range.

The main reason I think my Paula Deen kitchen cookware is the best cookware I’ve ever used is due to the non-stick surface. Foods slide out easily, without ever sticking, even if you accidentally burn something. This special non-stick coating also makes cleaning the Paula Deen cookware super easy, with no scrubbing needed.

Paula Deen cookware sets come in a variety of colors, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one to match or compliment your kitchen décor. As with most cookware sets, Paula Deen kitchen cookware comes with several different sizes of saucepans and lids, a large covered pot, and different sizes of frying pans. Some also come with cooking utensils. Mine came with a carving knife and a large meat fork.

Why to buy new kitchen cookware

This might seem silly to some, but I enjoy cooking even more since I got my new kitchen cookware. I guess I didn’t realize what a difference the right cookware sets can make. It’s so nice to see all the matching pots and pans simmering merrily on my stovetop. And because they’re so easily to clean, I no longer dread cleaning up after a meal. If you need a culinary boost, buy your own new kitchen cookware!
