As I mentioned above, we will begin with thickness of a pot or pan and the terms used. Metal thickness can be stated in inches (thousandths), millimeters, or gauge. Since many manufactures are now in Europe, they sell to Europe as well to the USA; those brands will be rated in MM or millimeters. Do not let metric measurements scare you; 1.0 MM is 0.0394 inches thick, a 0.5 MM is one half that thick or 0.0197 inches thick and 2.0 MM is twice that thickness or 0.0787 inches thick. The higher the MM rating the thicker the utensil will be. The next term for thickness is called gauge. Gauge can be hard to understand. The measurement in gauge works the reverse of normal thinking. The larger the number of gauge the resulting material will be thinner. A 16 gauge material is 1.3 MM thick, an 8 gauge material is 3.25 MM thick and a 4 gauge material is 5.18 MM thick

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.

If you are looking to purchase stainless steel cookware set, I would recommend that you choose a set that will meet your needs, yet does not break the bank. Do not compromise your needs and expectations because a cookware set is a little higher price than a lesser priced set that is not what you really want. At the same time remember a higher price does not always equal higher quality. Prices can vary for the same cookware sets through different suppliers.
