Every good foodie needs a well-equipped kitchen. And these days, great cookware is as much a practical necessity as it is a showpiece. Culinary enthusiasts aren't just into showing off their kitchen skills and edible masterpieces; they want to show off the dishes they serve them in and the pots in which they cook them.

Perhaps the easiest way for businesses to ensure a wide variety of kitchenware is available in their incentive programs is to connect with the corporate sales division of Bed Bath & Beyond. Besides the requisite gift cards, the home supply retailer also has a full catalog of great products, including a range of Le Creuset products.

Le Creuset is one of the most valued brands by home cooks, not only because its Dutch ovens and casserole dishes are so durable and timeless, but because they come in an assortment of colors that simply look great. For instance, its 2.75-quart covered square casserole dishes are made from stoneware that transmits temperatures evenly, ensuring consistent cooking. They also have an enamel interior that keeps moisture absorption to a minimum. 

For employees who aren't into casseroles, there's the Calaphon non-stick 10-piece cookware set, which is also stocked by Bed Bath. With a non-stick lining and a spout for pouring, these pots and pans are designed to make the cooking experience as painless as can be. The set includes two frying pans, two sauce pans, a saute pan, and a stock pot.

Need a Dutch oven? Beyond the Le Creuset brand, there is Lodge Manufacturing Company, available through Incentive Concepts. The six-quart Dutch oven offering is bundled with a care kit. It has an enamel coating that heats evenly and a cover that's meant to trap heat and moisture.  

Also available through Incentive Concepts is a bundle set that includes a 12-inch skillet, a reversible griddle, and a set of scrapers for easy cleaning. The griddle itself is smooth on one side and ribbed on the other, which means you can use it to cook eggs and pancakes, then reverse it to grill your meats and fish. It's basically an all-in-one grilling experience. And the skillet comes pre-seasoned, so it's ready to use straight out of the box. 

So save up your points, and start with your kitchen prep. With these products, you know a great meal is coming.
