And what cook hasn`t had the embarrassment of having guests spot little pieces of burnt sauce or even worse bits of the nonstick coating from their pan, staring at them from the top of your entree. It doesn`t have to be this way. Many types of quality cookware can solve these problems but for the average home chef, hard anodized aluminum cookware is the cookware of choice.
Stainless steel cookware and waterless cookware in particular, is noted for its flavor preservation. Quality stainless steel cookware will have at least 5 layers. These layers allow for even heat flow and durability. Aluminum conducts heat well in the inner layers, but would not be desirable on the outside because of its corrosive properties. Stainless is used on the top and bottom layers to protect not only the food, but the cookware itself.
The quality stainless steel 18/10 cookware sets are non-stick if used properly, meaning no high heat while cooking. Limited lifetime guarantee speaks volume about their quality. Stainless steel capped riveted handles and heavy gauge stainless steel with mirror finish exterior and satin finish interior rounds up an elegant, stylish functional cookware.
This property is advantageous for many types of cooking (for example, non-enameled cast iron skillets excel at browning and searing meat because of this property), but cast iron cookware is not ideally suited for dishes that require rapid temperature changes. Also, cast iron cookware must be seasoned to protect against rust, to prevent acidic food from reacting with the cookware, and to prevent food from sticking (a well seasoned cast iron pan is almost as stick resistant as a modern "non-stick" pan) and care must be taken when cleaning cast iron cookware not to remove the seasoning.
