The Perfect Pan.
An Unreal Price.

The Perfect Pan.
An Unreal Price.

Why is Premium Cookware So Expensive?

Most high-end cookware comes with a serious price markup.

While working at Fresh Direct — immersed in a culture that loved cooking and food as a new chef — Misen founder Omar Rada quickly realized that good, quality kitchen tools truly made a difference in his food.
“My previous cookware had been pretty mediocre, so a quality pan was a revelation. It cooked food more evenly, allowed me to be more versatile and creative in the kitchen, and was so much fun to use.”

When Omar tried to replace a high-quality $300 pan that a friend had lost, he was blown away by the price tags for quality cookware. After some research, he realized that most high-end cookware comes with a serious price markup, and shouldn’t actually cost as much as they do.

The Misen Stainless Skillet can go from stove to oven & is perfect for a variety of dishes, including rosemary garlic steak.

So, Misen was born. From a passion for good cooking, we’re on a mission to create premium cooking essentials for honest and affordable prices.

The One Pan All
Cooks Need

Invest in a great piece, not an astronomical price tag.

Virtually every chef agrees that a thick, stainless steel skillet is the essential workhorse for any kitchen.

Unlike a nonstick skillet, it’s durable, resistant to high temperatures, can go in the oven, and will last a lifetime. Even better, it can be used for 90% of all the dishes you’ll ever make.

Point is, it’s worth investing in. The problem has been the astronomical price tag that comes with a great one. Until now.

What Makes Great Cookware?

At a glance, stainless steel cookware is deceptively simple. Especially since most looks the same.
But there are a few things that really matter.

Starting with the thickness

A thicker pan (like Misen’s 5-ply) allows for more distance between the flame and the surface of the pan. Heat diffuses as it flows, so the extra distance allows heat to flow to the surface evenly (and be retained longer).

The result? Even heating, better browning, quicker boiling, and cookware that’s actually fun to use.

The Perfect Blend of Metals

Alternating layers of high-grade stainless steel and aluminum make this the perfect cookware.

More Space to Cook
Your Food

Because of their sloped walls, most 10” pans only give you about 8” of actual cooking space. We meticulously engineered ours to provide the maximum amount of cooking area — roughly 19% more than some “premium” cookware brands.

A larger cooking surface = more room for ingredients. The result? More food, cooked well, without overcrowding.

Handcrafted Down to the Smallest Detail

It took three years of obsessing over the tiniest details to create our cookware. It had to be good enough for the rigors of a professional kitchen, while being easy enough to use for home cooks of all skill levels.

We spent countless hours talking to and observing at-home chefs. At every step along the way, our cookware has been stress tested by professional chefs, avid home cooks, industrial designers, and total beginners to cooking.

We painstakingly went through countless sketches, CAD files, and over 32 3D prototypes until we landed on a design we’d be proud to offer you. The result? High-quality cookware that’s as beautiful and sleek as it is functional and durable, and will last you a lifetime.

Isn’t Nonstick Easier to Use and Clean?

We love nonstick pans for specific dishes like eggs. Problem is, even the best and most expensive nonstick cookware won’t last more than a couple years until the coating comes off. On top of that, they can’t be heated to high temperatures safely and require a lot of care to keep the nonstick coating intact.

And while not as easy to clean as nonstick, stainless steel skillets are still relatively easy to clean, You can throw them in the dishwasher (a nonstick no-no) or easily clean by hand with any non-abrasive sponge.

We Could Charge A Lot, But We’d Prefer Not To

Virtually every chef agrees that a durable, high-quality skillet is an essential workhorse in any kitchen.

We could easily charge $150 — at least — for ours, based purely on quality and design. But $65 is fair.
By partnering closely with our factories and selling directly to you online, we’re able to offer incredible cookware at wholesale pricing.

Better materials, lower price. It’s a simple maxim that we take seriously at Misen.

Food browns perfectly, evenly and the pan is easily cleaned. I think it’s worth every penny.
