Because we like to be helpful, we’ll also supply you with a list of recommended gas cookware options that we love, and we know you’ll love them too. Each of these gas cookware sets has been specially chosen, and we’ll explain why with an individual assessment. So, let’s get started!
How a Gas Stove is Different for Cooking
The biggest and most frequent complaint about cooking on electric stoves is how long they take to heat up. Follow that with the lack of reactivity to temperature adjustments. These two factors are what set gas apart; it’s quick, it’s highly reactive, and it’s reliable.
Professional-level restaurants and large-scale kitchens have preferred gas stoves for decades. Why? Because gas is easy to cook with, it is reliable and independent, is easy to maintain, and is not generally expensive to use.
Compared to electric stoves, including induction, ceramic, halogen, or the classic glass top electric stove, electricity is unreliable and slow. It does have advantages, but with the right cookware, those advantages are transferable to gas stoves too.
Cooking with gas means instant heat; it comes out super hot, super-fast, and can be daunting for the uninitiated or easily distracted. Cooking with gas requires a high degree of cooking proficiency, as it needs to be monitored when using high heat, and can be dangerous if left unattended.
But, the biggest issue with cooking with gas is its tendency towards uneven heat distribution. This flexibility can cause inexperienced cooks to overcook or burn some foods while leaving other dishes underdone or raw. The fluctuation in evenness can also affect your cookware, which is what we’ll discuss next.
What Makes the Best Cookware for Gas Stoves?
With gas’s unsteadiness, you need cookware that can compensate for and evenly distribute temperature. This ability to absorb the raw heat from the gas supply, and then ooze it out through your cookware is what will give you the most significant advantage.
Most chefs will use cookware that has a stainless steel cooking surface. Why? Well, there are several reasons:
- It can be seasoned to give a degree of natural nonstick ability
- It’s easy to clean
- It’s non-reactive to acidic or alkali foods
- It will not impart any metallic taste or colors into food
However, stainless steel on its own is too heavy, and not an even heat conductor. Fortunately, in recent years, there have been developments in cooking technology and metal fabrication. These changes have given chefs and cooks alike, universal cookware that has better heat transference.
What is this marvelous adaption? I’m glad you asked; it’s the design and implementation of layering metal; to form a cooking surface that benefits from the inherent advantages of different cooking metals.
For instance, aluminum is a superb heat conductor, being beaten only by copper. But, the problem with both of these metals is their reactivity towards acidic foods. Both raw aluminum and copper will have a chemical reaction with the natural acids in foods like tomato, lemon, and lime, vinegar, etc., and this will cause the food to taste metallic.
Aluminum is also incredibly soft, which means if you’re using metal utensils, then it may impart particles of metal into your food. One such example is if you’re whisking a béchamel sauce in an aluminum pan. The aluminum will turn your beautiful white sauce into a disgusting dirty-grey color.
Ceramic cookware and gas are not the right combinations either. The raw energy and BTU output of gas cooking are far too high for ceramic cookware. Any earthenware, ceramic, or porcelain cookware that is placed on a gas burner will, most likely, cause significant damage to the cookware.
Cast iron and carbon steel are both great to use with gas. However, both have thermal conduction issues that should be remembered: cast iron is slower to heat up and will hold its heat, whereas carbon steel is quick to heat and quick to disperse its heat too. These two thermal conduction issues can be problematic for some cooks.
So, what’s the answer? Remember when we mentioned layering metals? Yes, that’s the tip; look for cookware that has a ‘ply’ in its name or description. Since the advance in layering, or laminating, of metal, cookware manufacturers have designed cookware with the best of each metal’s characteristics.
This means you can now buy pots and pans with a stainless steel base, a copper and/or aluminum core, and sometimes even a PTFE/Teflon or ceramic coated cooking surface, or stainless steel in many cases.
With this design, you get stainless steel’s reliability, durability, and non-reactivity, aluminum, and/or copper’s thermal conduction, and if needed, a nonstick coating for ease of cooking and cleaning, although a stainless steel cooking surface is preferred by many for its durability.

Things to Consider When Choosing the Best Cookware Set for Gas Stove?
The number of Pieces and Size:
Just how much cooking, what style, and what quantities are you going to be cooking? These are some of the questions you should ask yourself before purchasing your cookware.
If you have a large family, there’s no point buying a cookware set, which will only accommodate 1-2 people at most. Equally, if you live alone or with a significant other, then you’re not going to want pots and pans that could cater to the military.
The ideal, general-purpose, basic set should include:
- 1-3 saucepans, ranging in size from 1-quart through to 3-quarts, are recommended for most households.
- An 8-10 inch frying pan.
- A stockpot of around 5-6quarts incapacity, for boiling pasta or making soup in substantial quantities.
Other pieces we’d strongly recommend would include:
- Steamer baskets.
- Dutch oven.
- Medium-larger saucepans, 4-5quarts if available.
- Grill, or griddle pans.
Unless you’re built like the Rock, then you don’t want cookware that’s made out of solid stainless steel – it’s too heavy! Additionally, cheaper cookware tends to be lighter because there’s less metal in the pots and pans.
This lightness sounds great until you understand how this will be affected by heat. Thinner metal pots and pans will warp and buckle under the BTUs of a gas stove. They are more likely to burn food and are less durable over time.
The answer? Look for cookware of moderate weight, which has thick-ish walls and a thick base. That way, you’ll get even thermal conduction from the gas supply, and it’s still thin enough to react promptly to temperature adjustments.
Where to Store:
Wherever you have the room, is a basic and straightforward answer. But, there are a few tips and tricks. If you have PTFE/Teflon or ceramic/porcelain coated cookware, try not to store your cookware inside each other. Doing so increases the chances of scratching/chipping/gouging of the surface, and once damaged may no longer be safe to cook with.
It is better to place each piece of cookware individually on a shelf, or hung independently, without anything in the ‘bowl’ of the piece. If stacking is the only option, then use a soft and well-padded cloth between each layer as this may help prevent damage to your cookware.
Handles & Lids:
Where handles and lids are concerned, a lot comes down to personal preference and cooking style. Most professional chefs will choose pans with a single elongated handle; as this provides ample ability to lift and flip foods in sauté pans, omelets or crepes/pancakes in their respective pans.
However, they will equally choose pots with two study and easy to grip handles for soup and stockpots. The reason for this is they are safer and more comfortable to lift when pots are weighed down by large amounts of food. This ability to carry a full pot, without spilling or dropping, is made possible by a sturdy squat-style handle.
Does that mean a domestic cook shouldn’t buy long-handled saucepans or pots with a different style of the handle? Not at all. When considering whether or not cookware is suited to you, it’s best to choose based on your personal needs. If you have dexterity issues, then easy to hold handles will be better. If you’re not good with heat, then shorter and more thermally protective handles are a smarter choice.
When it comes to lids, there are two basic styles; glass with a metal rim, or stainless steel. Most chefs will trust their cooking experience and thus choose a solid stainless steel lid, whereas many home cooks will prefer a glass lid for the added convenience of monitoring the cooking process.
Overall, your best handle and lid choices should be made based on the knowledge you possess about your personal cooking needs and preferences. Ideally, look for handles that are ergonomic, heatproof, non-slip, well-made, and securely attached to the pot or pan.
One of the best things about gas is the ability to go from stovetop to oven, providing you have the right cookware! With the right cookware, you can start a slow-roast on the stovetop, browning the meat all over, then finishing it off in an oven over a slow and steady heat. Julia Child’s Beouf Bourguignon never tasted so good.
But that’s the key; buying the right cookware so you can do this!
Cooking on gas, with its high temperatures and sheer force of energy, can be demanding on your cookware. Add into this that the metal will get extremely hot, and if you’re moving pots and pans around on your stovetop, then your cookware is going to take a beating.
This is why you need cookware that’s certified for use with gas stoves and why when you’re buying cookware, you need to look at its recommended lifetime. Whichever you choose, a cookware set, or a standalone piece, you need to be aware of how long the manufacturer says it will last.
While these numbers tend to be under-estimating the lifespan of cookware, it’s a good starting point to assess if that cookware will meet your expectations. For instance, if you’re a big fan of soup, and you cook up a large pot full every week, then you’ll want a large stockpot that’s guaranteed for at least ten years.
Equally, if you enjoy making sugary sauces, and prefer a nonstick milk pan, then you should expect to get 5years from your nonstick cookware. However, if your prospective cookware says it’s only suitable for 2-5years, then you’re probably going to be disappointed soon.
Another point that relates to durability is the construction of the cookware. Look for cookware sets that have protective coatings, or that have been anodized as an alternative to nonstick PTFE/Teflon. Handles should be riveted on, not screwed or welded. Lids should fit well, but not be tight or too loose. Finally, the base must be ‘heavy,’ that is, it should be thick and have a degree of weight to it for even heating and preventing the base from splitting under extreme heat cooking.
We all like and admire the fancy cookware in designer kitchenware shops. Without a doubt, lots of those manufacturers have earned their reputation through years of solid and reliable cookware construction. But, realistically, we can’t all afford to buy the top-shelf cookware we dream about. The good news is that there are options!
One of the best options you have is to buy a cookware set, rather than individual items for a custom cookware set. This generic choice will offer you the basic setup for your everyday cooking needs, and often will save you money. In addition to this, look for previous versions of the latest set – it might not be as fashionable, but can be a serious boost to your bank account!
Our next suggestion: don’t buy the big names. Look for quality over popularity, some manufacturers have produced durable and reliable top-quality cookware, but who are lesser-known. Alternatively, look for cookware deals on special selling days like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day, and New Year deals.
When building or adding to your cookware setup, consider only buying additional items you need and will use; unless you’re seriously into cooking whole fish, a fish kettle isn’t practical.
So, how much should you expect to pay for a good-quality cookware set? This is a tricky question as everyone’s budget will be different. A good rule of thumb is to base it on the following:
- Basic/Entry level: the cost of taking someone out on an impressive dinner a date.
- Intermediate level: around the higher end of your month’s grocery budget.
- High-end level: remember that dinner date? That’s per piece for this cookware.
The most valuable advice, when it comes to buying cookware, only ever buy the best you can afford. Shop around, and remember to purchase quality craft over a fancy appearance, you’re cooking with it not marrying it!
What are the Benefits of Cooking with Gas Ranges?
Cooking with gas has been the preference of chefs around the globe for decades. We love the instant heat, the variable temperature adjustments, the multifunction capabilities, and the convenience of gas.
That description sounds great, doesn’t it? But what does it mean, and how can it benefit you? Let’s start with:
Unlike with electric, when the gas ignites, the heat is on! There’s no delay while the burner heats up. You won’t have to wait for the hot burner to start warming the pot or pan. As soon as that flickering blue flame leaps to life, you’re in the thick of cooking action!
As with gas’s instantaneous heat, its ability to moderate temperature is unsurpassable. You can turn gas up and down, and the thermal response is immediate. This precise control over temperature is perfect for those who like to have greater control over the constant heat being emitted to their cookware.
With gas, there’s no surging on/off of the power supply, as is a regular complaint against induction stoves, or the lack of excellent temperature control as with traditional electric.
While lots of gas stoves come with electric ovens, you can also get stoves with gas burners and a gas oven – some even with built-in gas broilers or rotisseries. This is what we mean by gas being multifunction; it’s capable of doing everything in a single unit with a single energy supply.
Cooking with gas has to be one of the most convenient ways to prepare your food. With a range of stove sizes and multifunction capabilities, it’s also clean heat, meaning it doesn’t leave a nasty film on your cookware or inside the oven on its walls.
Cooking with gas means instant results; it’s quick and efficient instantaneous heat, no time-wasting, or spent waiting for the action to start. Depending on where you are located, there is either natural gas or LPG options for your gas supply, which means it’s either mains or portable, so even if you live remotely, you can still cook with gas!
Conclusion: Which Cookware Set is Best for Your Gas Stove?
Cooking with gas is the professional-level cooking energy source that’s available in most homes. It is unbeatable for high heat and low heat cooking, it is quick to heat gas suited cookware thoroughly, and is versatile in various cooking methods including stovetop, oven, grill, and broiler.
