Scouted: The Brand New Hexclad Pans (and Wok) Set Is One of 2019’s Best Cookware Upgrades

By (Gideon Grudo)

Good cookware goes a long way in making your skills in the kitchen even better. And a brand new line of hybrid nonstick cookware should definitely be on your radar if you’ve been considering an upgrade. Hexclad’s Hybrid Nonstick Cookware 7-Piece Set puts together first-of-their-kind pans that will give you all the horsepower and convenience you could want on your stovetop.

I found it extremely easy to get the pans ready for use: First, a quick rinse with soap and water. Unlike other specialty and elevated pans, these don’t require extensively delicate care. After drying, I threw the pan on the range with a low-medium flame underneath and, once warm, spread a dab of oil on it. A few minutes later, it was ready to go—and go it did. The unique hexagonal design in each pan marries stainless steel and a completely safe and abrasion-resistant nonstick surface. The pan itself is a tri-ply constructed aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. And each pan is really safe and easy-to-use:

  • They’re PFOA-free.

  • You can throw them into the oven (where they can handle up to 500 degrees.

  • You can use them with metal utensils without fearing any scratches (on both sides!) and you can clean them with your toughest sponges, too. Barring that, they’re dishwasher-safe and arrive with a lifetime warranty.

  • They’ll work on virtually any stovetop: induction, gas, ceramic, and so on.

  • The handles don’t get hot (unless there’s a flame beneath them, of course)

From the lightweight-but-substantial handling of the pans to their extremely stylish look (a byproduct of functional design, to boot), this is a cookware set that will step up your entire kitchen and make you want to get cooking often. | Get it on Amazon >
