Cookware - Jean Patrique Buying Guide
This may not come as a surprise to you - but we love cookware!
Over the past 20 years we’ve set out to create beautiful, innovative cookware. Pieces that are designed to inspire, but are also practical, long-lasting and incredibly durable.
Our diverse and growing collection includes pots and pans, saucepans, griddle pans, baking dishes and more! Whatever you’re looking for - and whatever you love to cook! - we’re certain you’ll find exactly what you need.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our cookware is versatile and easy to use - for any cook, in any kitchen. But nevertheless it’s important to think about your own needs when buying new cookware. So we’ve put together a simple buying guide to help you choose the right item for you.
Which qualities should you look out for?
First and foremost, high quality cookware should have excellent heat distribution. It should heat up quickly and efficiently across the whole cooking surface to ensure your food is cooked evenly.
A non-stick cooking surface is also desirable in most types of cookware. Non-stick materials make for easy cleaning and allow you to use less oil for healthier cooking.
Which meals do you cook the most?
The best cookware pieces are those that make it even easier to cook the meals you love! If you’re an expert at grilling meats and vegetables, a quality griddle plan will help you achieve those chargrilled lines. If you’re a passionate baker, a non-stick baking tray will make it even easier to cook delicious brownies!
High quality cookware is an investment. So when choosing your cookware, thinking about which meals you love to cook will ensure you come away with something that will take pride in your kitchen for years to come.
Have you thought about size and weight?
All the materials used in our cookware range are selected because they offer strength, efficiency and durability. However there are natural variances in the weight of certain materials.
Think about what weight is most suitable for you. As well as traditional cast iron products, you’ll also find lightweight alternatives in our range, constructed from ceramic or stainless steel materials. It’s also advisable to check the product dimensions to ensure you understand the size of the item.
Cookware Sets or Individual Pieces?
Cookware sets usually include multiple dishes, pots or pans and are perfect for anyone moving into a new home or setting off for university. Alternatively if you’re finding that a number of your items at home are showing signs of wear and tear, buying a cookware set is an excellent opportunity to upgrade your existing collection.
When choosing a cookware set, make sure you’re only buying what you need, as surplus items will take up precious cupboard space! If you only need one or two items, or are looking for something for a specific purpose, consider buying individual pieces instead.
