Now let get started on some cookware terms and the very basic knowledge you will need to know. As I mentioned above, we will begin with thickness of a pot or pan and the terms used. Metal thickness can be stated in inches (thousandths), millimeters, or gauge. Since many manufactures are now in Europe, they sell to Europe as well to the USA; those brands will be rated in MM or millimeters. Do not let metric measurements scare you; 1.0 MM is 0.0394 inches thick, a 0.5 MM is one half that thick or 0.0197 inches thick and 2.0 MM is twice that thickness or 0.0787 inches thick. The higher the MM rating the thicker the utensil will be. The next term for thickness is called gauge. Gauge can be hard to understand. The measurement in gauge works the reverse of normal thinking. The larger the number of gauge the resulting material will be thinner. A 16 gauge material is 1.3 MM thick, an 8 gauge material is 3.25 MM thick and a 4 gauge material is 5.18 MM thick
The Copper Core All-Clad line blends stainless steel with a copper core for those who want the precision of copper cooking with the fuss and hassle. It is easy to clean and use. There is also the All-Clad LTD cookware set that features layers of anodized steel, aluminum and stainless style for excellent heat conductivity. It has a gleaming black exterior for an impressive appearance. The Cop R Chef is cookware designed for the professional chef.
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.
