Cookware made of all copper (or mostly copper) material is also very popular for quality cooking, as it does not have some of the chemical reactions associated with other materials. Although copper is an expensive material cookware, this is the type that most professional cooks use for many cooking techniques. It conducts heat efficiently and evenly, so you`re assured that your food is cooked in entirety.
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.
The cookware has a heavy cast iron core which is consistent in quality and thickness up the side walls and in the lids. This creates great heat conductivity and allows the food within it to remain hot for a considerable length of time when you take it to the table. It is reputed to be able to withstand high temperatures without warping, and can be used on the stove top, in the oven or for broiler cooking.
When buying anodized aluminum cookware be sure to get a reputable brand that has a solid aluminum base rather than a combination of alloys. If you have true quality solid aluminum cookware you will experience the wonderful benefits of cooking with aluminum. Aluminum cookware is known for distributing heat quickly and evenly throughout the pot or pan. You will no longer have to worry about hot spots that cause some areas to burn while others are undercooked.
