Fissler’s sleek and sophisticated pressure cookers, pots, frying pans, knives and other kitchen accessories put contenders in the shade. Their Vitavit pressure cooker, for instance, is a joy to behold: a silent, healthy ally that steams your food while you attend to the demands of the rest of your day. Based in Germany, Fissler has been knocking out cookware since 1845, with an eye to making your work in the kitchen easier while increasing (exponentially!) your pleasure in cooking.
Fashioned from an innovative, durable enameled cast iron that gently distributes heat, this French cookware will suit everyone from the novice to the five-star chef. Whip up pot pies in the mini round or oval cocottes, or opt for the larger dishes. All are attractive enough to move from the stovetop to the table.
When you’re shopping for kitchen essentials, it can take quite a bit of time to write out your list and then motor around to a bunch of stores to check everything off. Instead, we did the work for you. Here’s our list of essentials (and little luxuries) that’ll make your kitchen well stocked — and quite nice-looking, if we might add.
We dubbed this selection of design finds “modern folk,” because of the way they combine a subtly homespun, artisan feel with fresh, contemporary lines. It’s a look that’s soft and fresh, and at once retro yet totally 2013-appropriate.
From cookware to cutlery, these essentials will get you covered in the kitchen and enrich your culinary experience. And, at discounts up to 80% off, you can get cooking without obliterating your budget.
