High-quality cookware has always been the heart of all serious cooks. You require a variety of pans and pots to make time in the kitchen easy and enjoyable. Expensive does not always mean the best as some companies sell their brand rather than quality. This does not tend to mean that cheap cookware have better quality compared to the expensive ones. As they say, sometimes cheap tends to be expensive.
When choosing your pots and pans, it is always prudent to choose those made of materials that suit your cooking technique. Here, I just want to talk about what has worked well for me. The best pots and pans are those that serve their purpose with ease.
The 10-piece, Calphalon Classic stainless steel pot and pans is one cookware set that I would be proud of when recommending it to anyone who seeks my advice.
With these pots and pans, you get value for your money. These whole set of the most used cookware in the kitchen cost only about $200. It has no useless piece to itself. It is an economical or should I say affordable set.
It is made of stainless steel which is not light weight or thin for its purpose. Stainless steel is non-reactive with food neither does it scratch and peel. This makes the whole set of cookware safe for general cooking. The cookware set (pots, pans, and lids) can withstand the high temperatures inside the oven. The handles including those for the lids, never get hot thus making it safe in your hands. This makes them the best pots and pans you can easily think of.
Though they may stick and brown, the pots and pans in the set are very easy to clean; just soak and scrub and the silvery shine is back. This my recommended set of pots and pans to those who are just starting out in life.
My other favorite cookware happens to be the non-stick type. These non-stick pots and pans have become popular these days by the fact that food never sticks in them. This makes your washing quite easy.
Though some people may prefer whole sets of non-stick cookware, I only boast of my Anolon Advanced non-stick frying pan. Most non-stick pots and pans should be used with wooden or silicone utensils to avoid scratching of the non-stick coating. These would damage the pan or pot by affecting its functionality. My Anolon Advanced non stick pan is hard anodized, which makes it less susceptible to scratches.
