Smeg, the brand that's known and loved for its retro-inspired home appliances just launched its first cookware line. If you're someone who has had their eyes on one of its bright red fridges or toasters and want to bring that vibe to your entire kitchen, these pots and pans are a great place to start.

There are eight pieces in the Italian brand's collection—four frying pans, two casserole dishes, a saucepan, and a wok. All have Smeg's signature curved style, a proprietary patented shape that keeps heat distribution even. And the non-stick coating means you won't need to add too much oil to prevent food from sticking. All of the pieces are oven-safe and come with a glass lid.

Whether you're a newbie or an expert, Smeg's cookware makes sense—and looks good—in the kitchen. Each adds a variety of potential cooking options and meals without the clutter. The collection is available now at Nordstrom.

Here are a few of the pieces from Smeg's newest cookware line.
