For a consumer who is looking to buy a set of cookware, finding a product that is meant to last is going to be on the list of “must haves.” These items will be used daily, if not multiple times each day. At the same time, there is a desire to find a product that is aesthetically pleasing. The consumer is ultimately looking for a balance between a durable and safety cookware set and an attractive one.

Safety IS Important to Consumers in Broad Sense

Consumers are more environmentally conscious as a whole. There is much more social attention being paid to ecology, to making choices that are “green." Wrapped within this general concept, there is a definite trend toward treating the home as a sacred space. Everyone lives at such a hectic pace, dealing with many things that are out of their control on a daily basis, economics, politics, climate change, and so on. This means it becomes more important that the space inside the home is secure, under control and quiet. When we think about safety and cookware, consumers definitely want to buy products that are safe for their personal use. There is a larger trend at play here as well. It is concerned with the environment as a whole, and then what someone is bringing into their home.

Since the home is a place that the consumer looks forward to going to for rest and relaxation, it makes sense that whatever enters the house is taken into careful consideration. Consumers are choosing to spend leisure time at home and they want the objects they surround themselves with to be safe for themselves and the environment. They are actively looking for high quality, controlled and certified non toxic products also in cookware.

The covid-19 pandemic, then, has only accentuated this need, increasing awareness of the importance of maintaining a sanitized environment especially in the kitchen.
