The only thing more important during the holidays than cooking tasty food is making sure it looks good on the table. When you don’t want to bust out your servingware or chafing dishes, cookware you can take directly from their heat source to your table is crucial. Here’s our list of cookware that looks just as great on the holiday table as it does in the kitchen.
Why: Rudolph-nose-red is the most Christmas-y color you can find. And nothing says warm and hearty meals like cast iron.
What: Soups, stews, large braised meats, a pot of green beans, or even a baked dessert.
Why: A stainless steel finish and that gorgeously unique domed lid make you and your guests feel like they’re sitting down to a five star meal.
What: Braised meat, chicken thighs, and anything you need to sear or sauté.
Why: Your main dish deserves to be cooked and served in a stunning and shiny vessel. Sturdy handles make it easy to carry to the table and present to your newly impressed guests.
What: Whole turkey, beef or pork tenderloin, rack of lamb, and casseroles-style dishes.
Why: Shiny, shimmery stainless steel is total pro material. And the matching lid, large surface area, and deep sides make cooking and serving big batches of dinner a delight.
What: Large batches of sautéed vegetables, stir fries, confit chicken or duck.
Why: With a metallic red exterior and its accompanying glass lid and matching red details, this stockpot serves enough food for the crowd and looks great doing it. The soft-grip red handles also make it easy and more comfortable to bring to the table.
What: Soup, big batches of sauce and gravy, shellfish stew, fresh pasta dishes.
Why: You’ll need a few vibrant red trivets to complement your good-looking dishes and protect your table from hot cookware. If you play it right, your cookware will match the trivets.
What: Place underneath any hot piece of cookware or baking dish.
