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.
This cookware set is constructed of aluminum with a porcelain enamel exterior and a non-stick interior. The aluminum core allows for quick and even heating of food, as aluminum is an excellent heat conductor. The outside of the cookware is porcelain enamel. Porcelain enamel is quite stain resistant and makes for very easy cleanup. The interior of the cookware is non-stick, allowing foods to easily slide from the pan onto your plate. Metal utensils will scratch the non-stick coating so the set does include 2 rubber utensils to allow you to easily remove the food from your pots and pans without damaging the interior.
Unlike gas and conventional electric cooking elements, induction elements do not heat up and then transfer heat to the pot or pan. Instead, they directly heat the pot or pan via magnetic hysteresis loss. While the home cook or restaurant chef has no need to understand the details of magnetic hysteresis, he or she must be aware that induction cooking only works with pans made of a ferrous (magnetic) material and will not work with aluminum, glass or ceramic cookware. In addition, although steel is normally magnetic, some stainless steels are actually non-magnetic alloys unsuitable for induction cooking.
Cast iron is probably the most inexpensive cookware. It provides a non-toxic cooking surface that heats evenly and quickly. Once heated, a cast iron cookware maintains the heat for a long time and is ideal for slow cooking and deep-frying. The downside is that cast iron cookware can rust, stain and rough when exposed to air, moisture and certain foods. Do not wash your cast-iron with soap and water. Wipe it with a clean paper towel instead. To put off rust, eliminate any excess moisture from the surface and coat it with oil before storing.
