I had a great experience with Elizabeth. I decided it was time for new cookware and found Curated when I was searching and very skeptically decided to give it a try . Elizabeth kept my needs and price point in mind when recommending cookware sets to me. I felt confident to trust her decision in making my final decision.

Clark you were amazing!

Clark really listened to what I wanted and needed and he fully understood the assignment. I am very much a South Ga “home cook” and I am in my kitchen daily and depend on my pieces to be durable enough to last for years to come. So excited to try my new pots and looking forward to getting more in the future.

I have been struggling to figure out what knife to get myself. I am someone who cooks every day and needed something that would work for a variety of ingredients. Leo was so helpful in giving me personalized recommendations and explaining why each knife would work for me. Also! He was able to get an amazing deal on these knives.

Mike is wonderful!
5 /5
I was really unsure about using curated but it was seriously the easiest experience ever! I communicated my needs, he curated them to fit our needs and lifestyle, gave us several options for each item in various prices and was honest about it all. I never felt like he was trying to upsell or get me for my money. We exchanged several jokes and he was beyond easy to talk to! Each time I needed a price renewed he did it immediately and was so quick to respond! Can't wait to get our cookware!

Curated Experts Can Help You Find the Best Specialty Cookware for Your Kitchen

Specialty cookware is specific pieces of equipment that lend themselves to particular cooking techniques. Specialty items are not usually found in cookware sets but are needed by enterprising cooks who want to explore and expand their abilities.

Imagine multitasking on a single large surface, making breakfast, or a special dessert right on the stovetop, or even going all out with pizzas or an impressive roast during a holiday. In order to make any of this possible, a piece of specialty cookware will certainly be needed. Let’s take a look at the options available for you on Curated.

Crepe Pans

As the name states, these pans are excellent for making crepes. These pans heat rapidly, which is crucial because crepes must be cooked very quickly. The crepe pan is a very shallow pan with slanted edges that allows for a quick release of moisture in order to dry out the thin crepe batter. This process produces those lightly-colored soft pancakes that melt on the palate.

Grill & Griddle Pans

Many home cooks do not have a grill at home due to space limitations. Usefully, grill pans provide a great alternative for making grill marks when an outside grill is not available. These pans have ridges on a large rectangular cooking surface and often have straight sides as tall as those of a frying pan to avoid spilling excess oil.

Griddle pans are larger cooking surfaces that provide all the benefits of a plancha—which is a large inch-thick steel cooking plate that transmits heat evenly throughout its surface—but on a smaller scale. You can make multiple pancakes at the same time for a large family, switch to scrambled eggs, or even fry french toast. Griddle pans make breakfast cooking as seamless as pressing the start button on a coffee machine. For those who are more adventurous, you can sear steaks, fish, or other proteins and also pan-roast vegetables on your griddle.

Omelet & Egg Pans

As the name states, omelet and egg pans are perfect for making omelets, thanks to their curved sides which allow that beautiful half-moon shape. These pans are essentially the same shape as a frying pan but come in much smaller sizes.

Pizza Stones, Pans, & Peels

In many ways, pizza stones and pans are similar except in the makeup of their materials. Pizza stones are made of terracotta or other earthen ceramic materials and are preheated inside a conventional oven to evenly distribute high heat to your pizzas and flatbreads. Pizza pans do a similar task, except that they use a thin, round, metal pan to distribute heat quickly.

A pizza peel, which is essential for building the perfect pizza, can be made of either wood or metal. Both materials must be lightly floured so the moisture from the dough does not stick to their surfaces. Place the thin dough onto the surface of your peel of choice and proceed to build the pizza. Wood or metal peels will perform equally well, and one’s preference for aesthetics is the only differentiator.

For a bit of an insider tip, lift one side of the already-built pizza and blow air underneath it. This will help loosen the pizza from the peel and make transferring it to the oven an easier task. You can look forward to getting more insider tips when you chat with a Curated Kitchen Expert!

Roasting Pans

These pans are often an afterthought in a home kitchen. However, this afterthought becomes a pressing necessity when you need the proper cookware to cook that Thanksgiving turkey, a special Sunday roast, or even a regular lasagna. Roasting pans do more than roast food though, they are also great for making large batches of stews, braises, and casseroles, and can double up as a griddle or even reduce sauces if needed. Roasting pans are great at handling heat thanks to their all-metal design that allows you to introduce the whole pan into the oven without a worry.
