My first cooking set was a hodgepodge of pots and pans that were shared between four roommates. They were piled haphazardly in one of our bottom cabinets, as there was no clean way to stack them neatly. We kept them out of sight and out of mind, but this also means we were reluctant to cook on a daily basis.
The Cooking Totem set covers the essential cooking needs of any young adult, while also presenting itself in a beautiful package. It contains five pieces: a wok, soup pot, skillet, saucepan, and crepe pan, which all stack neatly together like nesting dolls. The set also comes with two modular lids and detachable handles — a game-changer that allows for easy, compact storage.
Of course, as you saw in the picture above, this eye-catching set was meant to be displayed, not just on your kitchen counter, but in the dining room. Just remove the handles from the Cooking Totem pots, and you get a set of simple, sleek serving bowls. This product’s duality as a kitchen and dining room set truly separates it from other products in the space … and it clearly deserved to win this year’s RedDot Award.
