Pots & Pans

Did you know that copper is the best heat conductor but can be very expensive and heavy! Aluminum is the second best heat conductor, but the metal itself is very soft so it bends easily. It can also impart a metallic flavor and discolor certain foods. For the majority of my pots and pans,  I personally use stainless steel with either an aluminum or copper core on the bottom. At school, most of our pots and pans are stainless steel as well.

Stainless cleans easily, is food friendly, and is very strong. While it gets a bad rap for having hot  or cold spots on its own, the addition of an aluminum or copper core bottom/sandwich, make this material ideal for most of your pot and pan needs.

Just do yourself a favor, stick with the non-stick pan when cooking eggs!
