Cookware made of all copper (or mostly copper) material is also very popular for quality cooking, as it does not have some of the chemical reactions associated with other materials. Although copper is an expensive material cookware, this is the type that most professional cooks use for many cooking techniques. It conducts heat efficiently and evenly, so you`re assured that your food is cooked in entirety.
In addition to frequently being non-magnetic, stainless steel`s thermal properties are not well suited for cookware (inductive or otherwise); carbon steel and cast iron both conduct heat much better than does stainless steel. Interestingly, the cookware materials with the best thermal conductivity, aluminum and copper, are non-magnetic and are both quite reactive, so there is really no one material that is ideal for induction cookware. However stainless-steel clad cookware, the fourth type of induction-ready cookware, is made from several different types of metals resulting in cookware that has the desirable properties of each.
Calphalon has a couple of different cookware product lines. The Calphalon One Infused cookware combines the hard anodized aluminum material with a non-stick surface to produce extremely durable pots and pans. They are safe to use on the stove, in the oven or under the broiler, and you can even use metallic utensils with them. As a note, the Calphalon One also comes in a standard non-stick version.
Waterless cookware uses a steam-control process that promotes healthy cooking because it uses very little water and minimal, if any, fats. The encapsulated bottoms of this cookware lie flat on the burner and allow for even heat distribution. With waterless cooking, low or medium heat is all that is required-never use high heat. Because you can use minimal water with this cookware, 98% of the vitamins and minerals are retained in your foods rather than the 58% retention rate of normal cooking methods. A vitamin-rich diet is a key factor in preventing age-related diseases.
