The feature of hard anodized aluminum cookware that has made it so popular is the nonporous, nonstick surface. This surface is scratch resistant to the point that it can be used with metal cooking utensils without concern. No more hunting for the nylon or wooden utensils. Just grab whatever is at the top of the drawer and cook without having to baby your precious nonstick pan. The nonporous cooking surface does not allow food to stick so you don`t have that burnt layer on the bottom of your pot to worry about. Plus you don`t need to stand in the kitchen and stir it every five minutes.
For non-celebrity cookware, heavy gauge stainless steel is the best high-end cookware. Stainless steel is a good choice for use with gas ranges and the cookware is oven-safe to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The nonstick version is a very good good choice. Low cost nonstick cookware made of hard-anodized aluminum with a nonstick coating is lighter in weight than the more expensive brand. This cookware is not dishwasher safe. This cookware is 400-degrees Fahrenheit. Copper pots and pans are among the most expensive kind of cookware,. Gourmet chefs love copper for their superior heat conduction. Copper pots need to be lined with tin or low maintenance stainless steel.
Now getting more popular is the energy-efficient,environmental-friendly, non-stick green cookware. A good example is the Cuisinart green pan which is actually hard-anodized cookware with scratch-resistant non-stick, petroleum-free ceramic-based surface coating, applied at a much lower temperature compared to traditional non-stick cookware. Oven-safe to 500 degrees F and comes with securely riveted stay-cool steel handles manufactured using 70 percent recycled stainless steel. Save the environment, use the green pan for your cooking needs.
Waterless cookware uses a steam-control process that promotes healthy cooking because it uses very little water and minimal, if any, fats. The encapsulated bottoms of this cookware lie flat on the burner and allow for even heat distribution. With waterless cooking, low or medium heat is all that is required-never use high heat. Because you can use minimal water with this cookware, 98% of the vitamins and minerals are retained in your foods rather than the 58% retention rate of normal cooking methods. A vitamin-rich diet is a key factor in preventing age-related diseases.
