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.
For many, having just the usual cookware is enough as long as it serves its purpose of getting your food cooked. But sometimes professional cookware can actually make a huge difference in your cooking and help you cook better, thus more people appreciate your cooking too. Professional cookware is not just for chef cooking on TV or for high-end restaurants to use, there are now households which recognize the benefits of using the best cookware in their kitchens.
Most of the major cookware manufacturers such as, Calphalon, Cuisinart, and All Clad, include hard anodized aluminum cookware in their product lines making it easy to find. But is it worth the somewhat higher investment? Anodized aluminum cookware is likely the most durable cookware on the market and is easily twice as strong as stainless steel cookware. It will not dent or discolor and it can be dyed to make it more fun and festive. You just can`t help feeling happy when you are cooking with bright yellow cookware.
