Most of the major cookware manufacturers such as, Calphalon, Cuisinart, and All Clad, include hard anodized aluminum cookware in their product lines making it easy to find.

It will not dent or discolor and it can be dyed to make it more fun and festive. You just can't help feeling happy when you are cooking with bright yellow cookware.

High Carbon Stainless Steel knives are ones that have between 0.1% and 1.0% Carbon as well as the needed amount of Chromium. They can be hardened through heat treating and will hold a good edge, requiring knife sharpening much less often. Typically these steels will also contain a combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium. Molybdenum is an element that increases a knife's toughness while Vanadium helps maintain a sharp knife edge for a longer period of time. High Carbon Stainless kitchen knives tend to have thicker blades and be less flexible. These kitchen knives tend to be more expensive as high carbon stainless is more costly to use. Instead of buying an entire knife set buying kitchen knives individually can allow a person to acquire better knives over time. Some examples of High Carbon Stainless Steels are 440-C, ATS-34, VG10, and S30V.

We were hooked. Being lightweight is one thing but the balance of this knife was superb. The design is sleek and modern in appearance but filled with the Japanese tradition of making some of the world's best cutting steel.

Porcelain is typically less robust than other hardier materials and in many instances is one of the expensive of the four materials used in the manufacture of tableware. In most homes they are kept for special occasions. Bone china, although regularly confused with porcelain due to the large similarities between the two is fundamentally different. Bone china items are usually more expensive than their porcelain equivalents and in many cases are sturdier due to the use of bone ash in the construction process.

A quick glance at the reviews on Amazon show that owners are generally happy with their Anolon knife set. These reviews are one of the best indicators of quality because they are written by customers who actually own the knives. People generally either have to be really happy or really disappointed in a product to write a review about it. When you consider the fact that people are more likely to complain about something they're not happy with than they are to write a good review, it's obvious these knives are of good quality.

The amount of Chromium is a debatable point some say 10.5% is enough for a steel to be stainless but when looking at most better quality stainless steels 12% - 14% seems to be the norm. That said Chromium is not the only element crucial to here. The quality of a kitchen knife varies considerably with the type of steel that the knife is made from. Many knives that are simply called stainless contain virtually no Carbon. Carbon is the element that allows steel to be hardened, hard steel will hold an edge better than soft steel thus providing better edge holding. Low Carbon Stainless typically has less than 0.03% Carbon, these tends to be used on inexpensive kitchen knives and other kitchen cutlery. They do not hold a very good edge and require frequent sharpening. Some telltale signs are highly shinny blades, often they are very thin and flexible knives, and commonly have serrated blades such as those seen on a bread knife.
