Pots and Pans

All Purpose Skillet

Like a sauce pan meets skillet. This pan is 5 quarts vs. 3.5 quarts like a typical skillet. So it’s a perfect all-purpose pan! Oven-safe too!

Oven-Safe Non-Stick Skillet

Great for gnocchi bakes, small batch soups, stews, dips, braised chicken, pot pie, casseroles, and baked meatballs.

A More Affordable Non-Stick Skillet

This is a GREAT non-stick skillet at a reasonable price. But the downside is it isn’t oven safe. So basically just means more dishes.

Cast Iron Skillet

I love this for buffalo chicken dip, baked pastas/casseroles, roasting chicken, cornbread, frittatas, searing chicken/steak. I have the 10.25-inch and 12-inch pans. Lodge is a great brand for a reasonable price.

A Heavy Duty Dutch Oven

6-3/4 quart is my ideal size because you can scale up or down the amount of food in it depending on who you are serving. Great for soups, stews, roasting a chicken, risotto, and pastas.

A Super Large Pot

I love doubling soups/sauces for a batch to store in the freezer. This pot makes it so I can make it all in one pot.

Roasting Pan

You will use this way more than you think! Thanksgiving turkeys, roasted chicken, beef tenderloins, ham, pork butt/shoulder, and ribs.
