Remember in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy stepped out of her sepia world and into a land of vibrant color? That same sensation of wonderment is exactly what you'll be feeling when you upgrade your crusty cookware to a spiffy new set of pots and pans. "How did I go so long with scratched-up skillets?" you'll ask yourself. But not just any set will do — you want kitchenware that's durable, easy to clean, cooks evenly and looks good. Not sure of where to look? In the words of Gordon Ramsay, "Don't get your knickers in a twist!" The celebrity chef is a fan of HexClad, the brand behind the cookware he says "cooks to absolute, utter perfection." As if a celeb endorsement wasn't enough, the HexClad Stars & Stripes Sale is offering up to 43% off their nonstick sets for Memorial Day. Some even come with complimentary gifts, and who doesn't love a freebie?

What sets these pans apart is their hybrid construction, which combines the best qualities of stainless steel, cast iron and nonstick for a one-of-a-kind product that, according to Ramsay, "is highly versatile and cooks exceptionally well." They're made of aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel for expert heat conduction and distribution, and their nonstick interiors make them a breeze to clean. Plus, the signature hexagonal etching helps encourage browning. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get cookin'!

With this starter set, you'll get the 12-inch, 10-inch and 8-inch Hybrid pans, plus lids for each. Oh, and the 7-inch Hybrid pan is included as a free add-on during this sale.

"Best pans ever," raved a reviewer. "Sauté game has been elevated to a new echelon: I’ve never caramelized onions so perfectly and so quickly (always had to slowly sweat them down for 45 minutes). Sirloin came out perfectly medium-rare and ideally seared — first try! Eggs don’t stick! WOW, these pans do all the things!"

(Psst: This set made it onto our list of the best pots, pans and cookware sets of 2024, according to professional chefs!)

"This is the BEST set of cookware out there," gushed a fan. "I bought these two years ago and they still look brand new. We use them every day and they are a five-star quality set. No sticking, no scratches and they heat up evenly across the pan. Cleanup is a breeze. My next purchase will be the knife set. Great job, HexClad!"

Oh, and while it's not technically part of the HexClad Stars & Stripes Sale, this set is over $140 off should you need some new blades.

Not only will this stunning knife set elevate the look of your kitchen, it'll also make chopping vegetables a joy, thanks to the 67 layers of Damascus steel making up the blades.

"I’ve had a lot of knives," shared an impressed slicer. "This set is by far the nicest-looking and easiest to cut. No pressure on the knife and it cuts. You don’t even have to try. I cut a potato and ran to everyone in the house who has cut a potato before and made them try it. It was so easy, the knife basically cuts by itself. Best set … plan on adding more."
