The Le Crueset cookware company in France has been making cookware for over 80 years. This cookware is made from enameled cast iron. After the cast iron has been molded and enameled, much of the finishing on the cookware is done by hand so each Le Crueset Cast Iron piece is completely unique. In several publications, Le Crueset cookware has been rated as the best enameled cast iron cookware on the market today.
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 name of Farberware has been long known for its classic stainless steel cookware. Farberware has now introduced the Advantage line of cookware which is constructed from quality 18/10 brushed stainless steel with a number of special features. The pans have a thick disk base with an inner core of dense aluminum sandwiched between layers of stainless steel that create even heat distribution for ease in cooking. The pans are designed for easier pouring, and the flared design works with Epicurean style lids to create a reduction chamber that locks in food flavors as it cooks.
