Purchasing cookware can be a major investment! Therefore, before making that decision, spend some time researching your options. Weight the pros and cons of each and then make an informed decision.

The cookware needs to be durable, rugged, flexible and reliable. Durability and ruggedness means that the cookware is good for actual cooking chores and not just for display only. You need to be able to use it for extended periods of time without the cookware being disfigured or warped--a combination of stainless and copper are usually the ones excelling on durability and ruggedness.
Cast iron is probably the most inexpensive cookware. It provides a non-toxic cooking surface that heats evenly and quickly. Once heated, a cast iron cookware maintains the heat for a long time and is ideal for slow cooking and deep-frying. The downside is that cast iron cookware can rust, stain and rough when exposed to air, moisture and certain foods. Do not wash your cast-iron with soap and water. Wipe it with a clean paper towel instead. To put off rust, eliminate any excess moisture from the surface and coat it with oil before storing.
The design of the cookware also determines its performance level. Today, most cookware products are produced using the best technology surface coating for improved cooking experience. From traditional cookware items to modern non-stick version, there is a huge range to choose. While the traditional cookware products are less expensive, non-stick versions put a little more pressure on your pocket. It is necessary to read the features and specifications of the cookware product before buying it. Buy a product, which suits your requirements completely. For example: if you wish to cook vegetables quickly, opt for a pressure cooker, or if you wish to prepare delicious sauces, opt for a saucepan.
