Most anyone that cooks knows that stainless steel is one of the most suitable and well-liked types of cookware that is available today. It has proven its worth with its sturdy and lasting construction as it is a metal alloy formed from a combination of nickel and chromium that outlasts most other cookware, plus it retains its clean and polished good looks for years.
Stainless steel can be a bit limited on the heat conducting side, but that small inconvenience with the infusion of heat conductive elements such as aluminum and copper cores or encapsulated bottoms that built into the cookware during the manufacturing process. This process provides not only even heat distribution but durability with this type of cookware.
Stainless steel's cookware value found in its usual lower cost, so it saves housewives and professional cooks the worry of choosing a quality pan at the right price as the worth is already inherent in the cookware's longevity. For convenience and individualized use, stainless steel pans are usually sold in 7-piece sets with various standard pan and lid sizes, and they commonly contain sturdy and lengthy handles that are heat resistant and easy to handles, so burns, accidents, and spillovers are limited.
Also, stainless steel is nonreactive with acidic foods and is both durable and resistant to scratches and scrapes, plus it repels corrosion and rust. Cleaning and maintaining stainless steel is relatively easy as long as corrosive and abrasive cleaners are not used in the cleanup process. Oils and food residue usually lift off quite readily with a regular grease-resistant type dish detergent and light-handedness with a scrubby.
Stainless steel cookware has been the saving grace of many a homemaker as well as professional chefs because of its hearty construction, lower cost, ease of maintenance and overall traditional and lasting appearance.
