Cookware is an important product that many homeowners buy when moving into a new house. But, with so many available options, it can be difficult to tell which cookware suits your needs the best.
Among the most popular cookware options are aluminum and stainless steel, two materials with distinct characteristics that are sometimes unclear to customers. Which one is best for you?
With this rundown, we’ll help clear up any confusion by explaining the difference between aluminum and stainless steel cookware. What’s more, we’re here to help by informing you what you should look for when shopping for cookware.
Aluminum is a commonly-found metal that imbues cookware with a wide range of benefits. One of its best properties is its strong ability to conduct heat, something that is equally matched by its competitive pricing.
Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat, meaning aluminum-made pots and pans will heat up faster over the stove, and will cool down quickly and become safe to touch within a shorter time frame.
An interesting fact about aluminum is that it has a higher heat capacity than stainless steel. However, aluminum cookware isn’t able to retain heat well because of their second advantage: they are incredibly light. Compared to stainless steel, aluminum pans are lightweight and convenient to use. They are well suited for people who don’t want to use heavy pots and pans when cooking.
The third important advantage to aluminum cookware is their ability to heat up evenly. Due to its strong conductivity, an aluminum-made pot will cook its food evenly by distributing heat equally.
Cookware made from stainless steel is strong, durable, and made to last, making it popular in kitchens throughout the world.
Stainless steel has a tough, outer shell that is derived from the chromium in its composition reacting with the air. Besides making it strong, this chemical reaction also allows stainless steel to withstand high temperatures, making them safe to use in the oven.
As a result, stainless steel cookware is also known for being a scratch-resistant, corrosion-resistant, non-reactive addition to your kitchen. And because stainless steel is inert, it won't corrode or rust. Because they aren’t prone to chemical reactions, they can be used to easily cook acidic foods like citrus fruits or tomatoes.
Above all else, stainless steel cookware is practical to use. They are dishwasher-friendly, and can be used on any type of cooktop including an induction cooker.
On the other hand, stainless steel heats and cools slowly, and is not a great conductor of heat. Its construction requires a thicker base that makes it heavy to use. What’s more, there’s a premium on stainless steel cookware, meaning that they are usually more expensive than average cookware.
Although aluminium cookware and stainless steel cookware each have their own distinct merits, their complementary advantages make you wonder if an ideal compromise between the two exists.
And, it does.
For the best of both worlds, consider buying cookware containing aluminum and stainless steel.
By incorporating these two different metals, the result is a pot and pan that provides more than the sum of its parts.
Aluminum and stainless steel cookware have a strong structure, and are good at conducting heat. Surrounded by stainless steel on both sides, the aluminum remains inert and won’t chemically react with anything. Safe and durable, this type of cookware is as friendly to dishwashers as it is to rough handling, all while providing excellent performance that results in evenly cooked food.
Berlinger Haus offers all these benefits and more with its 4-Piece Cookware Set with Eterna Coating from the Eternal Collection. This cookware features a triple layer construction featuring:
By incorporating these layers and their unique properties, pots and pans become much more practical to use. Not only are they extremely scratch-proof, but their induction surfaces ensure exact heat distribution. In this way, triple-layer construction speeds up the cooking process and prevents food from sticking.
But that’s not all. This cookware set is protected by an Eterna coating, a revolutionary non-stick coating that makes cooking easier and cookware even tougher. Durable enough to handle metal utensils, this coating is incredibly tough and can handle just about anything in the kitchen.
