Essential to cooking, these humble vessels may not receive a lot of attention when thinking about kitting out your kitchen but choosing the right set will pay dividends in the long run.

First, make sure your choice of pan is compatible with your oven or hob. If you’ve got an induction hob, make sure to choose an induction-compatible pan set, for instance.

Buying pans as part of set usually saves you money compared to buying them separately. A matching set will also look harmonious on a hanging rail or choose pans that stack together easily if space is at a premium.
