Tips on Choosing Reliable Cookware

 

Cookware is very much like women’s legs: not all are created equal.  Some women’s legs stretch for miles, while some leave much to be desired.  Same goes for cookware.  It’s not all just about pots and pans.  There are a lot of important things to consider when buying quality and reliable cookware.

 

Choose cookware which conducts heat smoothly and efficiently.  Copper cookware is believed to be the one that does this job the best.  Make sure that the base is thick and flat to make sure that heat is distributed evenly.  Although stainless steel is more popular because of its affordability, durability and convenience, it’s not so good at conducting heat.

 

When it comes to cookware, non-stick isn’t the end all and be all.  It’s nice to have, but not always necessary. Cooking on a non-stick at high heat can damage the non-stick coating.

Handles are also important.  Choose ones that are riveted, and not screwed-on.  This is safer to use in the oven.  Be sure to choose cookware with good-fitting lids.

 

The weight of your cookware should be heavy enough to be stable, but not so heavy that you can barely lift it without feeling like you’re pulling a muscle.
More than your culinary expertise, your fate in the kitchen will be greatly determined by the quality of cookware you use.  If you want to try something new and start making pizza, for example, you can buy a pizza stone online @ Pro Cook.
Though ready-to cook pizzas are better to just chuck in your oven or perhaps a  deliverywill be more convenient, I still try once in a while to make them at home with the help my able little helpers, the kids.

 

Choose the right cookware for the job depending on the kind of cooking you’ll do, and you won’t be wasting precious money on sub-quality pots and pans.

  1. Yes. Always go for quality in order to have good product results.

  2. “some leave much to be desired” bwahaha

    but you’re right, choosing the best cookware is really important. I love using non-stick pans, and yes I don’t use it for high-heat cooking :)

  3. I find eating out and deliveries a little expensive so I prefer to cook our meals. Thanks to my reliable non-stick cookwares.

  4. after purchasing two non-stick pans in a month, next mission is finding saucepans. holidays are coming, i’d be dumped in the kitchen, as always :)

  5. Hubby got a collection of cookwares and bakewares that we don’t even use. I just grab what’s in handy whenever I cook. LOL!

  6. Ok from now on, I’ll always picture a woman’s legs when seeing cookwares. => It does take a lot of time and practice to be able to get the right type of cookware for different meals.
