Attention, cooking enthusiasts: If you’ve been lusting after those beautiful pots and pans in home magazines but don’t want to break the bank, we have excellent news. In true Target form, the retailer has recently launched a swoon-worthy new cookware line called Figmint (get it?), and it’s every bit as gorgeous as those sought-after brands, like Caraway — only way more affordable. Take this 7-piece nonstick ceramic set, for instance. It retails for $100 total; a Caraway sauté pan alone can cost upward of $140! These pieces don’t skimp on aesthetics or functionality and they’ll make your wallet happy. Bon appétit, indeed!
Looks aside, there’s so much to love about this Figmint cookware set. These pots and pans are constructed of aluminum, an excellent heat conductor for even cooking, and have a slick ceramic coating to ensure food doesn’t stick. You might even find you’re able to use less oil when you cook with these, and you can take comfort in knowing this set is made without PTFEs and PFOAs.
Included are a stockpot, saucepan and sauté pan with lids, as well as a frypan perfect for whipping up omelets and stir-fry dishes. The saucepan has a built-in spout and strainer, and you’ll also get three pan protectors, which allow you to stack everything without ruining the nonstick finish.
Whether you have an induction, gas or electric stove, this cookware is compatible with all of the above. It’s also oven-safe up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as dishwasher-safe — though to prolong the life of your pots and pans, washing by hand is always best.
And, of course, looks matter! This set comes in four lovely colors: Blue, Sage Green, Terracotta Orange and Cream, should you prefer a neutral. It looks so much more sleek and luxe than its reasonable price tag would let on, and you’re sure to receive compliments from anyone who spies them on the stovetop.
Don’t just take our word for it — check out what Target shoppers are saying about their Figmint cookware sets.
“The color is lovely,” gushed one happy home cook. “The pans are great. Nonstick, and they heat evenly. So far [I] have cooked scrambled eggs, sausage and chicken breast in the frypan. Everything turned out wonderfully. Cleanup was a breeze. Very happy with the purchase.”
“I love this cookware set!” exclaimed another satisfied reviewer. “I was hesitant because the color is so light and I thought my sauces would stain, so I started right off with making pasta sauce. I simmered my sauce for hours, and the pot came out so clean. The pots are lightweight, but do not feel cheap at all. … Sautéing items was also very easy and nothing ever sticks.”
“There are so many things to love about these pots and pans,” wrote a third fan. “First of all, they are truly nonstick and they are very easy to clean. Second, you don’t have to add much butter or oil to these pans. I love the ceramic coating, it makes these pans look very nice. These pans cook food evenly and quickly. After using these pans for about a month, I have noticed that the pans have not been scratched up with frequent cooking. They are durable.”
One thing to note: “I’ve been using these for about a week, and there’s been minor chipping around the top rim of the pot where the lid goes, but it’s not terrible,” shared a shopper. That said, they added: “I do recommend these, as [I] do believe they are very similar to expensive name brand pots.”
And don’t forget to check out these other beauties from Target’s Figmint line:
“Perfect Dutch oven,” raved a reviewer. “The color and the quality are excellent.”
“Just wow!” exclaimed a beaming baker. “This is a super quality set. Very heavy and beautiful! I love that I can take this set from the oven to the table. … Very versatile, has an elegant look to it. Sure to impress at the dinner table.”
“You know you’ve hit peak adulthood when you get excited about new pans,” joked a fan. “Well, here we are. I love the three different sizes that can bake a variety of things. Everything has baked so well and cleanup is a breeze. They nestle together to make storing easy without taking up a lot of room.”
