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.

Non-stick cookware is most preferred when cooking and reheating sticky kinds of food. It has a coated surface which means less oil, fat or butter used. Foods don't stick to the surface of a non-stick cookware. Some cooks like non-stick pans for its easy cleaning, although care must be given while washing a non-stick cookware. To make sure not to scratch the surface, use only wooden or coated utensils like plastic when cooking, and wash in hot soapy water but not in a dishwasher.
