Aluminum cookware is another material that makes up more than half of the cookware today. Aside from its being cheap, aluminum is a good conductor of heat and is used commonly with non-stick pots and pans. The obvious disadvantage is its reaction to acidic and alkaline foods leading to corrosion that spoils the taste of the food cooked. It is why aluminum cookware is frequently coated with stainless steel or anodized coating to save food. Aluminum does not require any particular care. Washing it in soapy water is sufficient. However, if the surface has anodized coating, be careful not to scratch the finish and avoid washing the cookware in a dishwasher.
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.
If you are the fussy, passionate cook, with an eye for perfection, and who does not mind spending time in the kitchen, whether preparing, cooking or cleaning up after a job well-done, then you might prefer quality stainless cookware, the gourmet cookware preferred by world-class chefs.
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.
