Misen, the same company that helped upgrade your knife collection with their affordable chef’s knife and paring knife, is back on Kickstarter with a new line of cookware that’s going to do the same thing for your sauces and sautéing that the knives did for your chopping and julienning. But you already have a collection of skillets, saucepans, sauté pans, and stockpots you’ve collected over the years, right? Why would you upgrade? From the stay-cool handle and the rounded edges to the 3mm thick, 5-ply stainless composite construction, the team at Misen obsessed over each and every detail to create an entire collection of pots and pans that works as well as any commercial cookware but is available at a fraction of the cost. This cookware is thoughtfully designed and durably built to conduct and retain heat well while also being easy to maintain for the years you use it before passing it on. The Misen Cookware Kickstarter runs until the end of October with estimated delivery dates for the products in February next year.
