Different varieties of cookware are available today to match various types of functional applications. The cost and the performance of any cookware product vary according to its material. If the thermal conductivity of the material is high, the food will cook faster. Hence, the price of such cookware is higher.
Stainless cookware is the most common but also the most friendly when it comes to price and qualities. It is popular for its good tensile strength, outstanding resistance to corrosion and non-reaction with alkaline and acidic materials like tomatoes and wine. Stainless steel pans make excellent sauces after sautéing the food. The only disadvantage is that stainless steel does not conduct heat well. It requires a solid aluminum or copper center to make it more responsive to heat. If you want your food to cook correctly, you need to get a high-quality heavy gauge stainless steel with aluminum sandwiched in-between. Stainless steel cookware is easy and simple to clean. You can wash it in a dishwasher and scrape with nylon pads.
They say that if created under the right conditions anodized aluminum can be as tough as a diamond. Does that make hard anodized aluminum cookware a real gem? In this cooks experience, definitely yes. Anyone who cooks everyday can be driven crazy worrying if they are using the right cooking tools, stirring their sauce often enough so it doesn`t stick and burn, and whether they are moving the cuts of meat adequately in the saute pan so no one piece is in the hot spot for too long. If you cook you have been there.
The cookware is very lightweight and easy to lift and balance. Some of the heavier duty cookware is heavy to lift and when you add contents to the pots, making them even heavier, it can be a struggle to lift them off the stove. The lightness and balance of this set should make it possible to toss and flip with ease.
