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.
Food brings people together in a happy atmosphere. Cooking brings out your creativity, imagination, passion, confidence and sincerity, and of course, to some, a great stress remover after a hard day`s work at the office. What is the best cookware? The best cookware set will depend on your needs and usage. The more popular ones are quality 18/10 stainless cookware, the non-stick cookware sets, cast iron cookware, and the environmental conscious will go for the green cookware.
No more burnt food bits to pick out of you dinner entree. This cookware is also a great tool for the health conscious because it allows them to cook with very little use of oils and butter, eliminating unnecessary calories while sealing in the taste. Then there is my favorite feature, easy cleanup. The nonporous surface does not allow food to stick so cleanup is as simple as a damp cloth and few drops of dishwashing liquid. Some brands claim to be dishwasher safe but I highly recommend hand washing as the harsh chemicals in most automatic dishwasher detergents is very hard on this type of cookware. But that`s not all.
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.
