For elegant parties and celebrations, fondue is a fun and classy way to feed your guests. The traditional Swiss dish serves melted cheese or hot broth in a pot which people dip pieces of bread, meat, or vegetables into using skewers, so a fondue set will typically include a pot and skewers. Some fondue sets may also feature a heating element. Fondue sets range from the simple to the decorative, allowing you to find one that is perfect for you.
Dutch ovens are hearty, lidded cooking pots that are usually made from seasoned cast iron, though enameled options are also available. They can be used to make cakes, roasts, stews, bread, meat, and much more. Some Dutch ovens are designed for cooking on a campfire, but others can be used in your home. Camping Dutch ovens feature slender legs and flat lids for cooking with hot coals, while home Dutch ovens are legless and can be used on a stovetop or in an oven.
Microwaves are quick and convenient, but can be dangerous if used with the metal pots and pans you use for heavy-duty cooking on the stove or in the oven. If you’re looking to use your microwave for fast and convenient cooking, microwavable cookware is a great option. Most microwave-safe cookware is specifically designed for cooking rice, bacon, omelets, pasta, and other foods you wouldn’t normally be able to microwave.
While you can certainly deep fry food in a regular stockpot or saucepan, using counter-top fryer allows you to fry larger batches, clean up more conveniently, and helps reduce risk of injury from spattering oil. A full set of frying equipment will often include a pot, a mesh basket, and a lid, but you can also just purchase a basket to use with an existing pot.
Pressure cookers use the steam from boiling water to build up heat and pressure to cook food much quicker than most other methods. Pressure cookers are typically constructed with a hefty pot or pan, a locking lid, an airtight seal, and a device that controls pressure. This heavy-duty design safely maintains high temperatures and pressures while cooking your food and makes preparing quick weeknight meals a breeze.
