Growing concern over Teflon has wrought a new era of nonstick cookware. If you're looking to upgrade your pots and pans, the West Elm Greenpan 10-Piece Set is the best we've found. Each aluminum piece's mineral-based coating holds heat well – the pans can be brought up to 850 degrees without releasing toxins – and yields slide-right-to-your-plate fare. They're also lighter, easier to clean, and more affordable than most competitors' pans. [$250; westelm.com]
