If you purchase a new set of cookware, there are a few questions you need to answer before you make a purchase. Determine how many times a week you cook at home. Decide whether you want cookware that is made out of high-quality materials that will cost you more money. You can save money by purchasing your aluminum pans and cookware sets at wholesale prices. Follow a few tips about choosing the right cookware for your home.

Types of Cookware

Nonstick cookware makes cleaning up easy and most are safe for the dishwasher. Stainless steel cookware has a professional look and performance. It is also great for searing, sauces and nonreactive with foods. Copper cookware benefits include efficiently conducts heat, professional performance and offers a high-end look that goes with your kitchen decor. Stainless steel cookware looks great when hanging from the kitchen ceiling on pot racks. This also makes your cookware easier to find before cooking a meal.

How to Choose the Right Cookware

If you need to saute foods, then choose cookware that is deep enough to contain food while being accessible for stir spoons and spatulas. This type of pan has a wide base that maximizes the heated surface area. A frying pan should have sloped sides to make stirring and flipping easier. The pan should be deep enough to prevent spatter from butter and oil. A flat bottom helps regulate temperature and conduct heat more evenly.

Saucepans have rounded bottoms that allow for stirring without liquids getting caught in corners. A long handle with a lid that fits tightly is ideal. The high sides hold liquids inside the pan with maximum heating conduction and coverage. A saute pan placed on high heat is the perfect match when making flavorful sauces. A frying pan cooks best on medium-high heat to promote browning when cooking breaded foods. The saucepan is best on medium heat to heat up vegetables, soups, sauces and pasta. If you want your cookware and nonstick pans to last longer, then hand wash them instead of placing them in the dishwasher.
