Most of the major cookware manufacturers such as, Calphalon, Cuisinart, and All Clad, include hard anodized aluminum cookware in their product lines making it easy to find. But is it worth the somewhat higher investment? Anodized aluminum cookware is likely the most durable cookware on the market and is easily twice as strong as stainless steel cookware. It will not dent or discolor and it can be dyed to make it more fun and festive. You just can`t help feeling happy when you are cooking with bright yellow cookware.
Lined copper cookware is an expensive material but a good choice for many cooking methods. Copper has the ability to conduct heat uniformly and cooks food more evenly making it taste better. Copper cookware cools down quickly when removed from heat. The disadvantage is that copper interacts with everything it comes in contact with. Moisture in the air causes it to form a poisonous film on it. Salty food causes a chemical reaction that produces a metallic taste in food. This is the reason why copper cookware is lined with tin, silver or stainless steel to improve its qualities. Copper cookware is delicate that requires subtle washing with soapy water and regular polishing with special copper polish to maintain its clear copper shine.
Non-stick hard base cookware set such as the Kitchenaid Gourmet Essential cookware set is also an ideal companion in the kitchen. It features easy usage and lightweight pots and pans to ensure that cooking is not an ordeal of carrying heavy cookware. It also has a bright red coating that will keep your professional cookware good looking even for years to come.
There are many advantages to using titanium cookware. It is reputed to be healthier because you use less oil while cooking. The pans are supposed to be truly non-stick so you don`t need to use oil or water to cook your food, and which makes it easy to clean. Titanium cookware is very light, weighing less than other pots and pans which still retaining the strength needed for a solid piece. It also is very durable and lasts literally forever, and it resists dents and scratches. This type of cookware also heats quickly which reduces cooking times, but as a downside, titanium can be prone to `hot spots` which if not watched can cause food to burn.
