Copper cookware cools down quickly when removed from heat. The disadvantage is that copper interacts with everything it comes in contact with.

This is the reason why copper cookware is lined with tin, silver or stainless steel to improve its qualities. Copper cookware is delicate that requires subtle washing with soapy water and regular polishing with special copper polish to maintain its clear copper shine.

Clay material and cast iron are the classy traditional option. Clay is absorbent which when saturated with water and heated in the oven, allows steam to evaporate from the pores resulting to an increased flavor in the food. Clay pots are efficient, requiring less fat, less liquid, and less tending. For the cast iron, even without the porcelain coating, it is an excellent material for a cookware. It is generally pre-coated with unsalted fat that is heated to avoid rusting. It conducts heat efficiently and is very affordable. While cast iron takes a while to heat up, its temperature stays consistently hot retaining the heat evenly.
