So what's the best cookware for your kitchen? There are many great options depending on what you like to cook, how often you cook - and of course your budget. Here I've highlighted some of my favourite products.
For soups, stews, casseroles and chilli, quality castiron cookware cannot be beaten for performance and taste.
Lodge cookware is an excellent value, high quality choice for traditional cast iron products. And they know what they are doing. They've been making cast iron cookware for over a hundred years.
I adore Le Creuset. Beautiful, hard-wearing and above all, a joy to cook with, this is the world's most celebrated enameled cast iron cookware.
It's also a hugely popular gift for cooks and food enthusiasts. And choosing enameled cast iron cookware has a number of advantages over traditional cast iron too. The Dutch Oven pictured here is the one I use every day and I love it.
