Bakeware – Bakeware consists of a variety of food preparation containers which are usually found in the kitchen and are intended for use primarily in the oven. Although in many ways similar and sometimes interchangeable with cookware, bakeware is used in conjunction with slow heating and, as the name suggests, baking processes. Among the most numerous bakeware pieces are cake pans, pie pans, wonder pots and loaf pans.
Cookware – Cookware is vast and plentiful in diversity and style. The shapes of the cookware vessels are determined largely by the function required. These range from the flat frying pans to the more bulky stockpots and saucepans. Included in this section are all the cookware vessels and sets you can imagine. Here you’ll find sauté pans, griddles, dutch ovens, saucepans, frying pans, woks, roasting pans, casserole pans and stockpots.
Cutlery – The meaning of cutlery varies slightly in different parts of the English speaking world. However, in this section I have collected together hand implements that are used in the process of eating food. These include knives, forks, spoons, cutlery sets and more novel items such as chopsticks, fruit spoons and utensils that can be described as a mixture of any of the above. Stainless steel is the most popular materials but a variety of others are also available.
Drinkware – This section covers drinking vessels of all kinds imaginable. Also known as beverageware, drinkware can be bought in a wide range of materials, shapes, sizes and decorative styles. Glassware is a popular type for wine and spirits, whilst mugs and tea cups are usually found in materials such as earthenware, porcelain and stoneware as well as bone china. You’ll also be able to find traditional beer mugs, tankards, shot glasses as well as regular fruit juice drinkware for kids.
