wusa9.com | The best and worst cookware you can buy

When it comes to cookware, health and home energy don’t always come come to mind. Take a look at the pots and pans you have in your kitchen. Millions of Americans simply buy what’s on sale without a full understanding of potential consequences tied to your home and health.

The Bad:

Are you one of the many people with Teflon cookware at home? The American Cancer Society states the following:

“The major health effect linked with Teflon is the potential release of dangerous fumes from coated pans that are overheated. These fumes can cause flu-like symptoms in humans (a condition known as polymer fume fever) and can be fatal to birds.”

If that was not enough of a deterrent, many other cookware sets require a lot of unnecessary energy for your food to cook.

The Good:

One of my favorite Italian cookware sets back on sale excels with heat distribution, requiring less heat, less energy and guarantees faster food cooking that will actually lower your energy bill.

11 stylish buys to jazz up your kitchen counters and tabletop for …

With so many eye-popping patterns and funky designs being dished out, there couldn’t be a better time to freshen up your kitchen with some new accessories.

And no matter how large or small the space, key pieces such as a coffee machine (Nespresso have a new mini model), casserole dish and decorative tableware look great on open shelving, while even the latest recycling bin is stylish enough to want to make room for.

Here’s our shortlist of various kitchen collectables and practical pieces for table tops and work surfaces. Who knows, it may even inspire some creative cooking…

1. Alessi Espresso Coffee Maker Pulcina, available in red and black, from £59.95, Alessi.com

Inspired by hand-blocked prints on Indian cotton, we love Emma Bridgewater’s “new star of the kitchen table” Indian Sponge range, with its simple pattern that will make any dish you serve look even more delicious.

8. Nespresso Essenza Mini Magimix Lime Green, D30, £89.99, Nespresso.com/uk
