Considering the variety of cookware available in the market, it is always tough to pick the best cookware for glass top stoves, however there are a number of things that you should consider when investing in these products. Always ensure you buy good quality cookware that is made using high quality metal or ceramic. While people prefer to pick metal cookware, ceramic cookware can also help you to cook some amazing meals once you get used to it. If you’re not too sure about ceramic cookware, try starting off with a small pan or pot and gradually buy more once you like the way your meal is prepared.
If you don’t like to spend too much time in the kitchen, but you like slow cooked and braised meals, then always invest in heavy bottomed pots and pans. You can leave them on for hours and your food will not stick to the bottom of the pan or get burnt. People who like to cook up a meal very quickly should always consider investing in a pressure cooker and pots and pans that come with a lid. This helps to speed up the cooking process and it also helps to save on gas.
Cookware is available in a variety of metals. While some metals are better than others, there are a few that are definitely preferable over other metals. Here is a look at two of the metals used in cookware.
Aluminum: Almost 50% cookware is made of aluminum these days. Aluminum is said to heat the cookware the best. One of the main problems of aluminum is that it is soft and dents and scratches very easily. Since aluminum has a tendency to react when it comes in contact with certain foods, it is generally found sandwiched between two or more metals. These days aluminum goes through a treating process that is called anodization. This process makes aluminum scratch proof and keeps it from reacting with food as well.
Copper: These days copper cookware is seen in professional kitchens and restaurants because of its superior ability of heating. Copper cookware is not commonly seen in homes as its price is not that affordable. Professional chefs prefer using copper cookware due to its ability to cook food evenly and the ability to adjust to the change in temperature as well. This gives them better control over their cooking.
