This cookware set is constructed of aluminum with a porcelain enamel exterior and a non-stick interior. The aluminum core allows for quick and even heating of food, as aluminum is an excellent heat conductor. The outside of the cookware is porcelain enamel. Porcelain enamel is quite stain resistant and makes for very easy cleanup. The interior of the cookware is non-stick, allowing foods to easily slide from the pan onto your plate. Metal utensils will scratch the non-stick coating so the set does include 2 rubber utensils to allow you to easily remove the food from your pots and pans without damaging the interior.
Aluminum cookware is another material that makes up more than half of the cookware today. Aside from its being cheap, aluminum is a good conductor of heat and is used commonly with non-stick pots and pans. The obvious disadvantage is its reaction to acidic and alkaline foods leading to corrosion that spoils the taste of the food cooked. It is why aluminum cookware is frequently coated with stainless steel or anodized coating to save food. Aluminum does not require any particular care. Washing it in soapy water is sufficient. However, if the surface has anodized coating, be careful not to scratch the finish and avoid washing the cookware in a dishwasher.
The oldest copper cookware manufacturer of them all, Mauviel has been making copper cookware since the 1830s. Mauviel`s cookware is thick, a 2mm (millimeter) base for their cookware is a typical design. The heavier the cookware, the better--unfortunately, the more expensive too, because it uses more copper, obviously. Mauviel offers a lifetime warranty for their cookware.
