What’s new and noteworthy for gifting the cook this holiday season

There's never been a more exciting time to gift a seasoned or novice home cook. The rise in popularity of all things culinary has raised the bar on product innovation, craftsmanship, convenience, quality, and attractive styling. When seeking cookware gifts for friends and family, here are a few new collections to consider.

Anolon® Accolade™ ($49.99 - $499.99) – Gourmet-chef-worthy, this new forged hard-anodized collection features Anolon's best nonstick. The triple-layer, sapphire-reinforced, metal-utensil-safe nonstick provides optimal food release and lasts more than 16 times longer than traditional nonstick cookware. Patented Precision-Forge™ technology puts the metal where cooks need it most – in the thicker base, slimmer side walls, and heavy-duty rims. The Accolade collection is induction suitable, dishwasher safe, and oven safe to 500°F.

Anolon® Nouvelle Copper Luxe™ ($39.99 - $399.99) – Styled in rich Sable or elegant Onyx, this collection features durable, hard-anodized aluminum construction and a heavy duty multi-layer base crafted with copper for excellent heat conductivity. With premium nonstick on the interior and exterior, this collection is completely dishwasher safe, and the Unity Surface® of flat, easy-clean rivets means easier clean-up. Oven-safe to 500°F, all stovetop suitable, including induction, dishwasher safe, and beautiful.

Circulon® Symmetry® Merlot ($49.99 - $299.99) – Perfect to complement holiday décor, the popular Symmetry collection is now available in warm, sophisticated Merlot. Crafted from hard-anodized aluminum, a material that is twice as hard as stainless steel, this collection features the TOTAL® Nonstick System with premium-quality nonstick that lasts 10 times longer than ordinary nonstick coatings. Heat-resistant, silicone-wrapped stainless-steel handles offer a comfortable and secure grip, and the cookware is dishwasher safe and oven safe to 400°F. (Also available in Black and Chocolate.)

Farberware® Copper Glide™ ($17.99 - $79.99) – Offered in Black, Blue or Copper, this collection is crafted in fast and even heating aluminum. The copper color interior features CopperSlide™ Technology, a 2-layer long-lasting ceramic nonstick with 90 percent better food release than other ceramic cookware. This durable cookware is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup and oven safe to 350°F.

Ayesha™ Home Collection Porcelain Enamel in Brown Sugar ($17.99 - $139.99) – Also available in Twilight Teal, Sienna Red, and, new for this year, Basil Green, the all-metal construction of this hard-working and exceptionally attractive, dishwasher safe cookware allows cooks to start meals on the stove, finish in a hot oven (collection is oven safe to 500°F), and serve straight from the oven to the table.
