2012 Readers' Choice Award Winner: Best Cookware Brand

For the second year in a row, direct-sale brand Saladmaster blew its competition out of the water with votes from its loyal dealers and consumers. The company has been in existence for more than 60 years, founded on a crank-operated shredding gadget. But now, cookware is its main focus, set apart from other brands by its stainless steel and titanium construction, space-saving detachable handles, and a special vented lid that aids in optimal cooking.

Runners Up:

  1. Swiss Diamond
  2. All-Clad
  3. Le Creuset
  4. Calphalon
