And what cook hasn`t had the embarrassment of having guests spot little pieces of burnt sauce or even worse bits of the nonstick coating from their pan, staring at them from the top of your entree. It doesn`t have to be this way. Many types of quality cookware can solve these problems but for the average home chef, hard anodized aluminum cookware is the cookware of choice.
The simply Calphalon Stainless product line is designed for home cooks on a budget. This line is made of 18/10 stainless steel and is easy to use and maintain. There is also the Calphalon Everyday cookware that is still very durable, with a non-stick surface. With both of these product lines, it is recommended that you do not use metal utensils with them, or use them under a broiler.
Falk is a pioneer in copper cookware technology. It invented and patented a metallurgical breakthrough when it combined stainless and copper to produce cookware. The use of stainless had some advantages. Not only did it`s use lowered the cost of production, it also made the cookware more sturdy. Stainless is usually used as a lining inside the cookware because it is an inert metal and it makes an excellent cooking surface because it does not react to food.
Aluminum cookware is another material that makes up more than half of the cookware today. Aside from its being cheap, aluminum is a good conductor of heat and is used commonly with non-stick pots and pans. The obvious disadvantage is its reaction to acidic and alkaline foods leading to corrosion that spoils the taste of the food cooked. It is why aluminum cookware is frequently coated with stainless steel or anodized coating to save food. Aluminum does not require any particular care. Washing it in soapy water is sufficient. However, if the surface has anodized coating, be careful not to scratch the finish and avoid washing the cookware in a dishwasher.
