Whether it’s the Pioneer Woman or Drew Barrymore, celebrities acting as the face of a cookware brand is nothing new. In fact, celebrity cookware is everywhere, with partnerships spanning some of our favorite brands like Caraway and HexClad.

Like most people, I’m healthily skeptical when I see a well-known face touting pots and pans. After all, as an editor at Taste of Home, it’s not the advertising that makes me smitten with a product—it’s the performance. So, are they worth adding to your cart?

Is celebrity cookware worth buying?

In the oversaturated market of celebrity cookware, there are some pieces that are well worth splurging on. In fact, some of the best cookware sets at stores like Walmart and Amazon boast ties to well-known chefs, actors and TV personalities. A few of our favorite pretty pans and baking must-haves are part of a celebrity collection, too. So, how does the discerning shopper wade the sea of familiar faces and too-good-to-be-true claims?

Our editors conducted thorough research and curated a list of the best celebrity cookware collections. Whether you’re looking to replace a scratched-up pan or are eyeing your first Dutch oven, you can’t go wrong with these finds. As a bonus, many of these picks are available in a range of shades and styles that match just about any kitchen.

Selena Gomez X Our Place Always Pan Ecomm via merchant

The Best Celebrity Cookware

Selena Gomez x Our Place

Our Place’s Selena Gomez collection is one of our favorite celebrity cookware collaborations. Included in the assortment is the bestselling Always 2.0 Pan in four limited-edition striking hues. Rosa is a rich magenta hue and Azul is a dreamy ocean blue, complete with matte finishes and coordinating handles. The more muted shades—Tierra and Cielo—channel an earthy vibe with gold lid handles.

Just like the original Always Pan, Selena’s 2.0 version replaces eight pieces of traditional cookware. It’s the perfect pick for small kitchens or those who hate cleaning multiple dishes—guilty!

Tan France X Caraway Cookware Set via merchant

Tan France x Caraway Cookware

I might be the biggest Queer Eye fan on the planet, so it goes without saying that I’m obsessed with the Tan France x Caraway drop. The Caraway Monochrome collection features the brand’s well-loved ceramic-coated, nonstick cookware in three muted shades with coordinating handles. It’s just as fashionable and functional as the Fab Five themselves!

Each pot and pan in the cookware set boasts a durable ceramic coating that prevents chips and burns. Everything from sticky sauces to fried eggs slide off easily—no messy cleanup required. Pick up a steamer basket insert and enjoy a new way to cook up veggies that are chock-full of nutrients!

Gwyneth Paltrow X Green Pan Roaster via merchant

Gwyneth Paltrow x Green Pan

Green Pan is one of our favorite cookware brands—just read our rave review. Their non-toxic nonstick coating, superior materials and pretty designs aren’t lacking in poise. Gweneth Paltrow shared the same sentiment, leading to a collaboration between Green Pan and her company, Goop.

The Goop x Green Pan collection features five different cookware listings, including a 10-piece set of pots and pans in a pretty bubblegum shade. Particularly, the line’s rectangular roaster caught our eye. Apart from the fun gold accents, a sturdy recycled stainless steel construction makes this pan capable of heavy lifting during the quickly approaching holiday season.

Johanna Gaines X Target Cast Iron Dutch Oven via merchant

Joanna Gaines x Target

Hearth & Hand with Magnolia is a Target line developed with the help of Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper fame. Recently, the Hearth & Hand line expanded to include a few pieces of farmhouse-inspired cookware and limited-edition Stanley cup shades.

The brand’s enameled cast iron Dutch oven currently has all of our attention. Sleek outer enamel is resistant to chips and cracking, while the cast iron interior offers superior sizzle for steaks and incredible heat retention for soups. Snag half-quart, five-quart and six-quart sizes to fit any family.

Rachel Ray X Walmart Nonstick Pan via merchant

Rachel Ray x Walmart

Unlike other celebrity cookware brands, Walmart’s Rachel Ray collection draws inspiration from one of Food Network’s most beloved chefs. Because Rachel Ray is an expert at cooking (just check out her meal kit), it goes without saying that her nonstick frying pan is worth having in the kitchen.

Apart from triple-layer, scratch-resistant nonstick aluminum, the pan is also oven-safe up to 400°F. Deliver dinner from stovetop to table with a clever helper handle that allows for easy transportation. Plus, the interior rivets include nonstick coating for easy cleanup—how cool?

Martha Stewart X Walmart Stainless Steel Stockpot via merchant

Martha Stewart x Walmart

There’s nothing Martha Stewart hasn’t dipped her hands into. From a famous friendship with rapper Snoop Dogg to her own line of home products, the 82-year-old celebrity shows no signs of slowing down. Over the years, she sported numerous partnerships with retailers like Walmart and Amazon—so it’s no surprise that her stainless steel stockpot makes our list.

The eight-quart stockpot offers ample room for blanching, braising and bubbling. It’s easy to clean and incredibly useful to have on hand, not to mention that precise measurements are etched on the interior for added accuracy during cooking. Cook up big servings in this simple stockpot and enjoy incredible performance across all cooktops, even induction.

The Pioneer Woman X Walmart Everyday Pan via merchant

The Pioneer Woman x Walmart

The Pioneer Woman needs no introduction. Ree Drummond’s Walmart collection features vintage farmhouse finds in cheerful, eye-catching shades that are almost as radiant as the woman herself. From an expandable cutlery tray to premium aluminum pans, the Pioneer Woman’s self-inspired finds are some of Taste of Home readers’ favorite inexpensive kitchenware.

Ree’s Everyday Pan is large and in charge at 13 inches. A durable aluminum body and stunning gradient porcelain enameled exterior look lovely on the stove. Because of the ceramic interior, sticking and burnt-on food is a thing of the past. Fire it up for a breakfast hash, or use it to fry burgers on the stove. This is one piece we keep reaching for again and again!

Drew Barrymore X Walmart Hero Pan via merchant

Drew Barrymore x Walmart

While Drew Barrymore isn’t a chef, she sure does know cooking. Her Beautiful by Drew line is some of the most popular celebrity cookware on the market because of its functionality and striking shades.

For fans of the Always Pan with less room in the budget, Drew’s Hero Pan is a near-perfect dupe. The three-piece Beautiful by Drew set can boil, strain, sauté, simmer, pan fry, sear, braise, steam, stir fry and serve—no extra pans required. Even better, cast aluminum heats evenly, so there are never any hot spots or burned bits left over.

Gordon Ramsay X Hexclad Dutch Oven via merchant

Gordon Ramsay x HexClad

Gordon Ramsay is the king of zingers, so it goes without saying that his standards are high. His partnership with cookware brand HexClad brings this stainless steel and nonstick hybrid line to every kitchen and boosts our opinion of luxury cookware. Gordon loves the brand so much that he famously coins it as the “Rolls Royce of pans.” Now that’s an endorsement!

HexClad’s Dutch Oven is one of our favorite items from the brand’s catalog. Apart from the patented hex hybrid cooking surface that sears like stainless steel but remains as nonstick as ceramic, we appreciate the lifetime warranty and oven-safe materials. To learn more about all its features, take a look at our in-depth review.

Thomas Keller X Hestan Stainless Steel Saucier via merchant

Thomas Keller x Hestan

Nothing makes sense like a chef being the face of a cookware brand. Hestan teamed up with celebrity chef and author Thomas Keller. The Thomas Keller Insignia collection is one of Hestan’s most popular lines, and it makes sense. Not only is the set beautiful, but chef-quality cookware materials make it well worth the splurge.

The Thomas Keller Insignia stainless steel saucier is available in a two-quart size. A rounded bottom takes the trouble out of whisking, and a tri-ply coating with an aluminum core promotes even heating, so hot spots are a thing of the past.
