The design of the cookware also determines its performance level. Today, most cookware products are produced using the best technology surface coating for improved cooking experience. From traditional cookware items to modern non-stick version, there is a huge range to choose. While the traditional cookware products are less expensive, non-stick versions put a little more pressure on your pocket. It is necessary to read the features and specifications of the cookware product before buying it. Buy a product, which suits your requirements completely. For example: if you wish to cook vegetables quickly, opt for a pressure cooker, or if you wish to prepare delicious sauces, opt for a saucepan.
The first option is the stainless steel. This material is popular being the least reactive metal that does not react with food. It is durable, highly-resistant against corrosion, efficient and less pricey, but a stainless steel cookware does not conduct heat well. So, in choosing a stainless cookware, make sure to look for medium to heavy weight, or thick-layered bottom pots and pans to ensure better heat conduction.
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.
