Aluminium: Is an excellent conductor of heat however is quite soft and would not last as long as stainless steel. A purely raw aluminium saucepan set is very rare as these would not work on an induction hob as they would not conduct electricity. It is more common for an aluminium saucepan to have a non stick interior and an enamel exterior which can be coloured to suit your kitchens design.
Glassware and enamel (which is made from glass) are safe choices for saucepans, since glass does not react with food in any way. Even if you use metal saucepans for other foods, anything acidic like fruit should be cooked in an enamel or glassware saucepan, to avoid the risk of metal poisoning. You have to take little extra care to avoid chipping enamel saucepans or dishes, since they are more fragile than metal. Once they`re chipped it`s best not to use them, since germ can hide in the chipped part. You wouldn`t put hot glassware pans into cold water, but beware of even putting down on a cold draining board, since they have been known to shatter there too. Never store food in a metal saucepan, but transfer it as soon as it`s cooked into container made of china, enamel or heatproof glass.
There are 4 sizes available that completely covers all your cooking quantity needs. You have a 1-quart, 2-quart, 3-quart and 4-quart sizes. Each comes with a comfortable lid also made from gleaming stainless steel that fits exactly with the pans edges to seal in flavor of your food. You can never go wrong with its stay-cool long handles riveted for strength and easy grasp.
Stainless Steel: Is both durable and hard wearing although generally a poor conductor of heat. This can be counteracted by adding a disc of material fixed to the bottom of the saucepan that is a good conductor f heat for example aluminium. This improves conduction and therefore how quickly these pans will heat up. The aluminium is normally not visible and is encapsulated as this protects it from corrosion if put in the dishwasher. The best Stainless steel for saucepans is 18/10 which has 18% chrome and 10% nickel which gives stainless steel saucepan sets the optimum stain and rust resistance.
