The oldest copper cookware manufacturer of them all, Mauviel has been making copper cookware since the 1830s. Mauviel`s cookware is thick, a 2mm (millimeter) base for their cookware is a typical design. The heavier the cookware, the better--unfortunately, the more expensive too, because it uses more copper, obviously. Mauviel offers a lifetime warranty for their cookware.
The cookware is very lightweight and easy to lift and balance. Some of the heavier duty cookware is heavy to lift and when you add contents to the pots, making them even heavier, it can be a struggle to lift them off the stove. The lightness and balance of this set should make it possible to toss and flip with ease.
Stainless steel actually refers to a family of steel alloys. To be called stainless steel, an alloy must contain a minimum of 10.5% chromium, and it is chromium that causes stainless steel to be resistant to rusting. Many stainless steels contain other metals such as nickel as well. Nickel adds additional corrosion resistance, hardness and durability to stainless steel; therefore it is common in cookware. Unfortunately, stainless steel containing nickel is usually non-magnetic; therefore some stainless steel cookware is not suitable for induction cooking. When purchasing stainless steel cookware for induction cooking, you should look for a statement from the manufacturer or retailer indicating that the cookware is induction-ready. Alternatively, you can test the cookware with a magnet.
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.
