If you want to be able to put your cookware in the oven, make sure the handles can take the heat. For example, plastic or wood handles won’t be suitable.
There are many different materials used to make cookware. The most common are stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and cast iron. Each has its own set of characteristics that make it more or less suitable for different tasks.
This is a very popular choice because it is non-reactive, meaning it won’t corrode or discolor with use. It is also easy to clean. Stainless steel is a good conductor of heat, but not as good as copper or aluminum.
This is a good conductor of heat and is often used in the construction of bakeware. It is light weight and inexpensive. However, it is not as durable as some other materials and can be easily scratched or dented.
Copper is an excellent conductor of heat and has a beautiful, shiny finish. It is also more expensive than other materials. Copper cookware often has a tin lining to protect it from acid.
This is a heavy, durable material that is slow to heat up but retains heat well. It is often used for frying and for cooking food at high temperatures. However, it is not suitable for use on ceramic or glass cooktops.
Now that you know the different materials used to make cookware, you can narrow down your choices to find the perfect set for your needs.
