Last week I was on Instagram scrolling and all of a sudden I saw my favorite interior designer, Jaime Carney, post about this new Cookware Set she got. Then Francesca (Too Hot to Handle) posted about it too, so you know I had to get it.
So, What is Caraway?
Caraway’s goal started in 2018 when Jordan Nathan, the founder, was distracted by a phone call and accidentally left a Teflon-coated pan on his burner. Very quickly, the apartment filled with fumes, he started feeling sick and was told by Poison Control that he had Teflon poisoning.
The incident inspired Jordan to launch Caraway, a line of nonstick pots and pans which are all ceramic-coated and free of PTFE, PFOA, and any other scary acronyms.
In most cases, it takes less than 3 minutes of high-heat cooking for a traditional non-stick pan to release chemicals. When I learned this, I threw out all my “nonstick” pans and ordered Caraway, which thankfully doesn’t leach any chemicals into your food.
I ended up ordering the Cookware Set (PS – it’s $100 off right now), which came with a Dutch Oven, Fry Pan, Sauté Pan, Sauce Pan, organizers for the pans, and an inside-the-cabinet organizer for each lid. I feel like a total chef!
The box itself had no plastic and only 100% recyclable materials. Inside, each pan was labeled with the name of the pan and a little description. Underneath the pans were the organizers for the pans and the lids.
When you open the Cookware Set, the unboxing is unreal. When you take the pans out, you can clearly see each pan has an aluminum core, stainless steel handles, and a non-stick ceramic coating around the pan. The pans also refrain from using any Hard Anodizing (a chemical to make the pans more resistant, which would leach into your foods).
Each of the four pans has a really nice weight to them, and they all have enough room to actually cook within the pans — whereas my old pans felt like my food was going to fly out when I started mixing meat or veggies around.
The Dutch Oven
The Dutch Oven has handles that feel like they’d last forever. I’ve had no problem putting spaghetti noodles in and not hanging over the edge — it’s deep, but not too deep (6.5 quarts, to be exact).
The Fry Pan
The Fry Pan was my favorite out of the entire Cookware Set. Because it’s truly non-stick, I’ve cut my consumption of oil and butter by at least half.
The Sauté Pan
I was pleasantly surprised by the size and room within the Sauté Pan. It’s HUGE, but in a great way. I was able to cut up 2 pounds of chicken into small bite-size pieces, add broccoli, spinach, and mushrooms, and nothing ever felt like it would fall out of the pan. Again, with this, I didn’t have to use as much oil to cook the chicken.
The Sauce Pan
The Sauce Pan is my most-used pan, since it cleans on the top rack of my dishwasher. I’ve also realized that I will now cook my sauce separately from my pasta, which has added a lot more flavor to the dish!
If it wasn’t enough to have the beautiful cookware itself, they also come with beautiful organizers to hold the pans upright in your counter or in your cabinet. I keep mine out, and they look gorgeous.
It clear Caraway really thought about everything with this one. These hang nicely inside my cabinet and keep my lids organized. No more bending over and trying to search for a lid top that fits my pan.
If you’re in the market for a new cookware set, I can’t recommend Caraway cookware set enough.
