Carbon steel is common in woks used for Asian-style stir-fry cooking but is otherwise not commonly used for cookware in the U.S. Like cast iron, carbon steel must be seasoned to reduce sticking, rusting and to prevent food from reacting with the cookware. Also like cast iron, once properly seasoned, carbon steel is almost as stick-resistant as modern non-stick cookware. Flat bottomed carbon steel cookware works well with induction cooktops; however round-bottomed woks will work only with specially designed Chinese style induction cookers.
The Revere brand is coming from a very good lineage of cookware and kitchen products. The same people who brought us the ECKO brand, Chicago cutlery and Pyrex brand has also brought us Revere cookware. The design of Revere cookware uses copper in the base, for maximum heat conduction. It uses stainless in the body of the cookware so that the cooking surface is a non-reactive to food. Revere has a 25 year limited warranty on their cookware.
Because of induction`s growing popularity, many manufacturers whose cookware is compatible with induction cooking will state this in their product descriptions. In addition you can perform an easy test: generally speaking, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of a pot or pan then that pot or pan can be used for induction cooking. Conversely, if a magnet does not stick to the bottom of the pan, then the pan cannot be used for induction cooking.
The name of Farberware has been long known for its classic stainless steel cookware. Farberware has now introduced the Advantage line of cookware which is constructed from quality 18/10 brushed stainless steel with a number of special features. The pans have a thick disk base with an inner core of dense aluminum sandwiched between layers of stainless steel that create even heat distribution for ease in cooking. The pans are designed for easier pouring, and the flared design works with Epicurean style lids to create a reduction chamber that locks in food flavors as it cooks.
