Stainless Steel cookware is tough; it is not prone to chipping, rusting or even staining if cared for properly. It contains primarily iron, chromium, and nickel-none of which have an adverse affect on your health. Iron, in fact, is beneficial and a required mineral in our diets. Chromium is also beneficial in small quantities, and cooking in stainless steel stays within these limits. Nickel can be harmful if ingested in large quantities, but only trace amounts enter into the food. Only those who are allergic to nickel should avoid using stainless steel altogether. Unlike with Teflon cookware, you do not have to worry about the particles of the pan coming loose over time and entering your food. In fact, stainless steel is one of the most hygienic surfaces for the preparation of your food, meaning that it is not likely to harbor bacteria and germs.

Lined copper cookware is an expensive material but a good choice for many cooking methods. Copper has the ability to conduct heat uniformly and cooks food more evenly making it taste better. Copper cookware cools down quickly when removed from heat. The disadvantage is that copper interacts with everything it comes in contact with. Moisture in the air causes it to form a poisonous film on it. Salty food causes a chemical reaction that produces a metallic taste in food. This is the reason why copper cookware is lined with tin, silver or stainless steel to improve its qualities. Copper cookware is delicate that requires subtle washing with soapy water and regular polishing with special copper polish to maintain its clear copper shine.
