Did you know though that you have a wide variety of kinds to choose from when it comes to saucepans? You can buy something that`s Nonstick and Teflon based, you can get a glass saucepan, a ceramic saucepan or something made of thick aluminum like the Calphalon saucepan. It mainly depends on the type of cook you are and what your needs are.
What is the purpose of your pan? If you don`t cook very often and you only cook a specific range of meals, consider the dimensions for the pots you will require. It is useful to have a large one in as well as a small one in case you are cooking for yourself or the family at different times, but you probably don`t need the full set and a full range of pans however enticing it may look in your kitchen to have a well stocked utensil cupboard! However, there are some great deals out there for saucepan sets including the Cook n Look luxury four piece stainless steel saucepan set. These come with the aforementioned see through lids for cooking convenience.
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.
The glass saucepans are another wonderful choice. Just like Nonstick cookware, you`ll make healthier and flavorful foods with this. It`s not with the reduced use of cooking oil but mainly you`ll be able to prepare food without tainting it with the metal odor that changes the way food tastes. This type of saucepan is very good for cooking fish dishes. Only problem with glass saucepans is that they can be very heavy and also they`re breakable.
