The idea of firing up the oven or even turning on the stove seems masochistic in the heat of summer. Now that the days are cooling (a bit) fall cooking is sounding like a rather tasty proposition. Treat yourself to some shiny new cookware and when it's time to cook, you'll be basting, rendering, drizzling and deglazing like a spellbinding TV chef.

Calphalon Classic 13-Piece Cookware Set

Anyone starting from zero can get instant, full-kitchen fulfillment with this set. This 13-piece set comes from Calphalon and is made from durable stainless steel paired with bonded aluminum bases for fast, even heating. Tempered glass lids and pour spouts even eliminate the need for a colander. 


Emile Henry Pizza Stone

You don't really need a pizza stone. Until you cook a pizza with one and wonder why you've been doing it wrong for so long. French-made Emile Henry's Pizza Stone is made from ceramic clay that can handle up to 900°F and crisply cooks a pie like it was in a brick fired oven. The glazed surface keeps anything from sticking and is strong enough you can cut on the stone.  


Wüsthof Classic 7 Piece Knife Set

Show that squash who's boss with a new knife set. This is Wüsthof Classic, the Drop-forged, high carbon steel, full tang, triple riveted knives that have been the German knifemaker's best selling line for generations. This seven-piece set has the useful knives covered and comes in a slim block that respects your counter space. 


End Grain Chef's Board

Pyrex Bakeware/Storage 14-Piece Set

Now that you've roasted all those root vegetables, you'll need a place for the leftovers. Pyrex bakeware and storage containers don't hold smells and happily go from the oven to the fridge.
