These days, people are just not satisfied with what their grandmothers used to eat. Their tastes are getting more discerning and more adventurous, with a fair majority willing to spend on good food and even willing to go the extra mile to get it. This amounts to more people seeking out good restaurants, good sources of the finest and freshest ingredients, and the ultimate best cookware set, the healthy cookware, to indulge in their passion for excellent food.
Aluminum is a material that is used in quality cookware, but only with certain applications. It is lightweight, and is best used as a core, or wrapped in another material such as stainless steel. The aluminum in the better cookware does not come in contact with food, as it tends to give food an "off" taste. This can be found in the cheapest of cookware, as all-aluminum pots and pans are inexpensive to make.
In addition to being magnetic, a pot or pan used for induction cooking must have a flat bottom; therefore traditional round-bottomed woks are not suitable for induction cooking, nor are pots or pans that have extremely warped bottoms. Several manufacturers make Chinese-style induction cooktops specifically designed for round-bottomed woks; however these cooktops are suitable only for woks and can`t be used with flat bottomed pans.
Carbon steel is common in woks used for Asian-style stir-fry cooking but is otherwise not commonly used for cookware in the U.S. Like cast iron, carbon steel must be seasoned to reduce sticking, rusting and to prevent food from reacting with the cookware. Also like cast iron, once properly seasoned, carbon steel is almost as stick-resistant as modern non-stick cookware. Flat bottomed carbon steel cookware works well with induction cooktops; however round-bottomed woks will work only with specially designed Chinese style induction cookers.
