Stainless Steel Cookware Set
A stainless steel cookware set relies upon high cooking heat and the use of fats like oils and butter to keep food from sticking, because they are without the special coating that non-stick pans have. For perfectly browned meats and seafood, the use of good, heavy, stainless steel cookware is a must.
Cookware sets include various shaped pots and pans, many of which come with lids. One integral piece is a sauté pan. These pans are shallow, feature long handles and are used to quickly cook or sear food over relatively high heat. The nice thing about stainless pans is that many of them can go from the stove top to the oven in order to finish cooking foods. For example, making a delicious pan roasted steak is easy when you brown the meat in a sauté pan then finish it in the oven.
A stainless steel cookware set by Calphalon might come with pots of several sizes. These pots are great for making soups, boiling pasta and much more. Stainless steel has a distinct advantage over non-stick when making stews. The meat can be browned in the same pot in which it is simmered allowing a depth of flavor to develop that would be missing from a non-stick cooking vessel.
Celebrity chefs often develop lines of cooking tools, and the Emerilware by All-Clad collection is just one example. Many of these pots and pans come with fitted tempered glass lids which makes seeing inside easy without having to first remove the lid. These pieces might also have riveted handles for durability, and they can often be washed in the dishwasher for easy clean-up.
Saucepans with pouring spouts are a handy feature. This allows the cook to pour liquids out of the pan without having it spill over the rim, which often results in a mess. These spouts are also a handy way to transfer liquids into a measuring cup for accurate measurements or to drizzle pan sauces over cooked meats.
