Congratulations on deciding to buy new cookware. It is a decision that should give you many hours of cooking pleasure and should be a decision you are comfortable and happy that you have made. Unfortunately quite often the shopping experience is not one that people have enjoyed, they sometimes feel that they have been pressured by sales people in to making decisions before they are ready to do so, they feel they have been persuaded into spending more than they planned to, they end up with cookware that is not suitable for their requirements. If any of this sounds familiar then please read on as we aim to help you with some easy to follow tips that will put you back in charge of the buying process.
Knowing what you want, if you do not need cookware that has dozens of features, then do not buy cookware with all the bells and whistles. Quite often when you go in to a shop the sales person will be keen to sell you a whatever cookware is on promotion. This might be the most expensive one they have or just the one with the best commission for the store. If you do not want that type or brand tell, them. Before you go to the store I would create a list of the features I need my cookware to have. Armed with this list I am able to tell the sales person what I want and I can check what he or she is showing me with my list of requirements, and if they do not match then let them know they are getting off-base.
Knowing what you do not want, this might sound a little strange, but if you are not happy with something regarding your current cookware – if the same thing keeps going wrong for example – then tell the sales person this. You obviously do not want to have the same problems with your new cookware that you had with your old set.
Test drive the cookware. When you have found a cookware set that you are interested in ask the sales rep for a demonstration. Please ask questions if you do not understand something they do or say as often the sales reps have a set demo and patter to go with it and this can seem a lot sleeker than it really is. You must also ask to try out the cookware for yourself. An old trick amongst sales reps is to use a recipe that is much easier for some aspects of cooking and will therefore give you a false sense of confidence. Using your own recipe also means that you can carry it from shop to shop and get a true comparison between the different cookware sets being offered.
