Different materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, copper, carbon steel, aluminium etc. are used for the manufacturing of cookware. Every metal has its own advantages and disadvantages. Aluminium has good thermal conductivity but less than that of copper. Whereas, cast iron can withstand high temperatures but provides slow heating.
Stainless cookware is the most common but also the most friendly when it comes to price and qualities. It is popular for its good tensile strength, outstanding resistance to corrosion and non-reaction with alkaline and acidic materials like tomatoes and wine. Stainless steel pans make excellent sauces after sautéing the food. The only disadvantage is that stainless steel does not conduct heat well. It requires a solid aluminum or copper center to make it more responsive to heat. If you want your food to cook correctly, you need to get a high-quality heavy gauge stainless steel with aluminum sandwiched in-between. Stainless steel cookware is easy and simple to clean. You can wash it in a dishwasher and scrape with nylon pads.
If I had a cookware set, would I work with each piece in the set more than once a week? - This is an arbitrary standard, but I probably wouldn't have bought my own cookware set if I didn't think I would use it about once a week, or frequently.
