In this article I’m going to bring you up to date on the latest and greatest best celebrity chef cookware for 2018.
Celebrity Cookware has gotten a bad rap over the years, but hopefully I can show a true picture of the good, the bad and the ugly.
Less expensive than some top shelf cookware, most of the sets are pretty good, maybe not last as long but great for the newly-weds or the beginning cook.
If you have been interested in new cookware, I’m sure you are not surprised at the number of chefs promoting their own cookware.
Well, let’s face it, they know the effect different cookware has on the finished product produced in the kitchen. So let’s get started.

This cookware is great for making great meals daily. Durable non-stick finish for easy release of food, no more fighting with the pan to get the food released.
