Celebrities becoming entrepreneurs is far from unheard of. They’ve been doing it for years, coming out with everything from beauty to home products. In the past couple of years, the trend has especially picked up across all categories (for better or for worse), including in the kitchen and cooking sphere. A good amount of celebrity chefs have collections, but even actors and musicians have been getting in on the action lately.

With so many celeb-owned (or endorsed) products out there, it’s not easy to figure out which ones are a cash grab and which are actually worth it. That’s where my Kitchn teammates and I come in — we’ve done the research and tested a good number of kitchen products with stars’ names attached to them, from Drew Barrymore to Stanley Tucci. Keep reading for our top 10 picks!

Dolly Parton

It’s no secret that Dolly Parton knows her way around the kitchen — in fact, my Kitchn teammates cover (and swear by) her delicious recipes on the regular. So it makes sense that the iconic country star teamed up with Lodge to create an adorable cast-iron cookware collection. The pieces, which range from a guitar-shaped skillet to a pan embossed with Dolly’s portrait, have the singer’s charm written all over them. (Plus: Lodge is a stellar brand. It topped our list of the best cast-iron skillets.)

Drew Barrymore

In addition to acting, Drew Barrymore has worn many hats over the years, becoming a talk show host and an entrepreneur. The multi-hyphenate star created a home brand that’s available only at Walmart, and it’s full of “Beautiful” kitchen gems that won’t break the bank. Tons of her pieces have impressed Kitchn editors, including her ceramic nonstick cookware. (One of our former editors said it’s some of the best she’s ever used. Enough said!)

Stanley Tucci

Another actor that doubles as a top-tier level home chef — seriously, check out his zucchini pasta recipe — is Stanley Tucci. The Searching for Italy star took his expertise in the kitchen and brought it to his collaboration with GreenPan. The brand’s nonstick cookware was already Kitchn-approved beforehand, but when our senior commerce editor, Ian, tried out the Italian-made “Stanley Pan,” he was blown away.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton might be better known as a socialite and reality TV star, but the icon has also stepped into the houseware space. Hilton’s Cooking with Paris show might’ve been canceled by Netflix after its first season, but she soon followed it up with a budget-friendly nonstick cookware set and other kitchen products. Of course, it comes in her signature pink, and a substantial number of Walmart reviewers gave it five stars. (Check out the other items here!)

Martha Stewart

There’s a good chance you’ve already heard of Martha Stewart’s kitchen line — after all, the media personality has been a huge name in the home arena for decades. (She didn’t earn the “Queen of Domestic Arts” title for nothing.) Stewart has a robust catalog of kitchen products with her name on them, including an affordable Dutch oven that more than one Kitchn editor loves.

Selena Gomez

Starting in 2020, Selena Gomez brought viewers into her kitchen with Max’s Selena + Chef, and a couple of years later, she partnered with viral cookware brand Our Place. The singer-actress developed a few stunning colorways for the brand, and shoppers quickly sold them out. You can add yourself to the wait-list to snag the Instagram-famous (and editor-loved) Always Pan in Gomez’s hues (“Azul,” “Rosa,” “Cielo,” and “Tierra”). There are an adorable apron and cups available, though!

Gwyneth Paltrow

Another star that’s made the jump from acting to making lifestyle products is Gwyneth Paltrow, whose brand has become something of a phenomenon over the past few years. Goop is known for its pricey cosmetics and controversial candle (IYKYK), but they also joined forces with GreenPan back in 2019. Unfortunately, that cookware collection is no longer available, but a couple remain on its website, like this gorgeous casserole dish.

Rachael Ray

You can trust that celebrity chef and TV personality Rachael Ray’s kitchen products are actually worth it. The 30-Minute Meals star has a huge collection of cookware and bakeware that’ve earned thousands of positive reviews, like this affordable cast-iron skillet. “I was skeptical about this skillet but all I can say now is … WOW! Love it! Cooks evenly and so easy to clean like any cast-iron skillet,” a shopper wrote. Another added that the brand’s stainless steel pots and pans, nonstick bakeware, and ceramic pots still “look new and perform great” after a decade.

Chip and Joanna Gaines

The Fixer Upper stars (and HGTV royalty) first gained popularity for their remodeling and home design business, but they didn’t stop there. The duo partnered with Target to create the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection, which includes nearly every home item you could think of. A few kitchen gems are among them, like this $35 baking dish that serves a ton of style. (It has a nearly perfect rating!)

Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman)

Ree Drummond, behind the popular blog-turned-TV show The Pioneer Woman, also has a robust collection of kitchen items at Walmart. (Seriously: There are hundreds of them.) Budget-friendly and stylish, Drummond’s offerings include everything from floral-printed air fryers to stockpots. Kitchn contributor Sharon tested her nonstick cookware set and determined that it has “lots of useful pieces for just about every cooking need.”
