If you don’t have any cookware kitchen essentials for your studio for rent in Singapore, you can start with Caraway. Their bright pastels are sure to brighten up the kitchen of your apartment rental in Singapore. While the name evokes scenes of nostalgic Americana, the company was only founded in 2019. CEO Jordan Nathan started Caraway after discovering the potential dangers of nonstick coatings on certain cookware (though you only need to worry when you’re putting nonstick pans through extremely high heat).

Caraway Cookwares are free of potentially toxic materials such as PFOAPTFE and other PFAs. The pots are instead made of aluminium and stainless steel, with a ceramic coating. It’s also oven safe (up to 550°F)—and it can work on induction, gas, and electric stoves.
