8 Cookware Essentials Every Guy Should Own

Sure, you can probably get away with making meals using a set of mismatched pots and a battered cookie sheet, but once you're ready to actually enjoy cooking—and make your meals as healthy as possible—its time to upgrade your equipment. Here's how.

Few cooking methods bring out the flavor in food quite like roasting, a technique that's so incredibly easy, its (almost) dummy proof. Just slice up Brussels spouts, red potatoes, broccoli, eggplant, squash or any other root veggie, toss with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and add the pieces to a shallow-bottomed baking dish (like this enamel coated cast-iron model from Mario Batali) making sure they line the entire bottom. Then place your pan in the oven set at 400 degrees F for about a half hour, removing it from the heat after the contents turn a golden brown. And that's it: simple, super-tasty side dish.
