They say that if created under the right conditions anodized aluminum can be as tough as a diamond. Does that make hard anodized aluminum cookware a real gem? In this cooks experience, definitely yes. Anyone who cooks everyday can be driven crazy worrying if they are using the right cooking tools, stirring their sauce often enough so it doesn't stick and burn, and whether they are moving the cuts of meat adequately in the saute pan so no one piece is in the hot spot for too long. If you cook you have been there. And what cook hasn't had the embarrassment of having guests spot little pieces of burnt sauce or even worse bits of the nonstick coating from their pan, staring at them from the top of your entree. It doesn't have to be this way. Many types of quality cookware can solve these problems but for the average home chef, hard anodized aluminum cookware is the cookware of choice.
The feature of hard anodized aluminum cookware that has made it so popular is the nonporous, nonstick surface. This surface is scratch resistant to the point that it can be used with metal cooking utensils without concern. No more hunting for the nylon or wooden utensils. Just grab whatever is at the top of the drawer and cook without having to baby your precious nonstick pan. The nonporous cooking surface does not allow food to stick so you don't have that burnt layer on the bottom of your pot to worry about. Plus you don't need to stand in the kitchen and stir it every five minutes. No more burnt food bits to pick out of you dinner entree. This cookware is also a great tool for the health conscious because it allows them to cook with very little use of oils and butter, eliminating unnecessary calories while sealing in the taste. Then there is my favorite feature, easy cleanup. The nonporous surface does not allow food to stick so cleanup is as simple as a damp cloth and few drops of dishwashing liquid. Some brands claim to be dishwasher safe but I highly recommend hand washing as the harsh chemicals in most automatic dishwasher detergents is very hard on this type of cookware. But that's not all.
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.
