We partnered with Canadian lifestyle blogger Charlene Wong to inspire your Christmas dinner goals. From cookware advice, to delicious and healthy recipes, we’re revisiting Charlene’s favourites and unveiling new picks for 2019 coming soon!

If you’re looking for a high quality cookware set, now is the time to make the investment. I suggest going with stainless steel pieces, like the ones in the ZWILLING Joy cookware set, for versatility, durability, and functionality.

There’s no better way to conduct heat than with stainless steel. They provide the best surface for searing meats and evenly cooking things like pan sauces. Other bonus advantages of stainless steel are they’re corrosion-resistant (resistant to tarnishing and rust), and they can even go in the oven!

The ZWILLING Joy cookware set

The ZWILLING Joy cookware set is one of the most popular cookware sets from their line. You’ll get the most out of your money with all the practical pieces that you will definitely use on a daily basis. Set includes:

  • 1.4L Saucepan with lid
  • 1.9L Sauce pot with lid
  • 3.5L Sauce pot with lid
  • 6L Stock pot with lid
