- 14 pans
A cookware set is useful if you're going to live on your own for the first time or if you just need some new pans. A set usually includes multiple cooking pots and you can expand the set with different pans. Most cookware sets are suitable for use on gas stoves and induction, electric, and ceramic cooktops. You can even use some pans in the oven. Most cooking pots are dishwasher-safe, but it's best to clean them manually.
