3. The number of your family. The pieces of the cookware set are also with different size. So you should choose your cookware according to the number of your family and your habit. If you hold parties often, then you should choose a larger size.
4. The functions. You should know what you will use the cookware for, don’t choose the cookware that you will never use. There are different cookware sets from 4 pieces to 20 pieces. Don’t waste your money on those things that you don’t need.
