Cult favorite kitchenware brand Material — which, earlier this year, debuted the emerald pan we never knew we wanted — is back at it with even more cookware, just in time for the holidays.

Today, the brand introduced two new products to The 29 Collection: The Sauce Pot ($95) and The Sauté Pan ($105).

Like all of Material's famous cookware, the new items are made with high-quality materials that make you feel like you're cooking in a Michelin-starred restaurant. The pan feels solid in your hand, yet not too heavy to use with ease. Both new products feature the same five-ply stainless steel finish with a copper core, which allow them to heat up quickly and evenly while avoiding wearing down and warping.

The three-quart sauce pot features a convenient pour spout that makes it easy to move liquids from pot to bowl with no spills. The sauce pot also has cup measurements etched into the interior and a rounded bottom, making stirring a cinch.

Meanwhile, the three-quart sauté pan is elevated with slightly raised, splash-catching edges and comes with a tight lid to keep moisture in. The pan, like the sauce pot, features an etched interior with cup measurements, perfect for adding just the right amount of olive oil.

If you can't decide on just one item to gift your chef friend, the "29, Your Way" bundle option ($250) lets you choose three items — The Sauce Pot plus two pans. Just another gift idea for the foodies in your life.
