Which kind of pots and pans do you need? - For a few people a skillet and a saucepan would be adequate for them, but for others like me, I need a lot of pots and pans. My advice has always been to start small. Cookware is one thing that really shouldn't be skimped on: cheap pots and pans are simply not worth it. That doesn't really mean you need to invest a lot of your funds, though; you could find great deals on good cookware at retailers like Amazon, Cooking.com or even at a garage sale.
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.
These type of cookware have encapsulated base of aluminum or copper, some, such as the Cuisinart MultiClad Pro have the encapsulation all the way up the sides of the pots and pans. This extra thick heavy gauge base gives the stainless cookware its distinctive quick heating, and even heat distribution and retention features, thus eliminating hot spots. Low to medium heat is enough to cook up a delicious meal, saving much time and energy costs in the long-term. Quick and even heating are essential features of a good cookware.
