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.

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.
