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.
Copper cookware has been around for a long time, it also expensive. Copper is one of the more expensive metals to use for anything, it is probably the reason why stainless, aluminum or the compositely bonded metal cookware became more popular. Recently, it has been returning to vogue, and for good reasons.
The Calphalon cookware is created from a process invented by NASA to create anodized aluminum cookware, which has the advantage of being very hard and smooth, naturally resistant to corrosion, and being non-stick as well. The first cookware products were created for professional chefs, but later the Calphalon products were brought to the consumer market.
