Stainless Steel: Is both durable and hard wearing although generally a poor conductor of heat. This can be counteracted by adding a disc of material fixed to the bottom of the saucepan that is a good conductor f heat for example aluminium. This improves conduction and therefore how quickly these pans will heat up. The aluminium is normally not visible and is encapsulated as this protects it from corrosion if put in the dishwasher. The best Stainless steel for saucepans is 18/10 which has 18% chrome and 10% nickel which gives stainless steel saucepan sets the optimum stain and rust resistance.
Aluminium: Is an excellent conductor of heat however is quite soft and would not last as long as stainless steel. A purely raw aluminium saucepan set is very rare as these would not work on an induction hob as they would not conduct electricity. It is more common for an aluminium saucepan to have a non stick interior and an enamel exterior which can be coloured to suit your kitchens design.
Lastly, we have the saucepans made of thick aluminum. If you ask people who love to cook, they`ll tell you, this is one of their top choices. You can use the saucepan for so many dishes like casseroles, stews and of course sauces. And aside from that, you`ll be able to lock in the most delicious flavors in your food. With their bottom parts made thicker than the rest of the saucepan, you can trust in even heat distribution while cooking.
As with all valuable kitchen objects you should read the manufacturers instruction on how to use and care for you pans. Because they look so great they could be displayed on a shelf when not being used or hung on a wall. Do not plunge into cold water immediately after heating as you may damaged the saucepan. Do not use any abrasive cleaners, pads or brushes as this will damaged your saucepan surface.
