Stainless cookware can be washed in soapy water easily. To prevent water spots on the pot, rinse the cookware and dry thoroughly. Only use mild cleansers. Stainless cookware with copper bottom can be cleaned in any dish detergent. Ceramic, enameled and glass cookware are simply washed with a mild cleanser, but there are ready-made dish detergents for these materials that you can use. Clay pots should never be washed in a dishwasher, or with any detergent because the porous clay will absorb the odor and taste of the cleaning material. The best thing is to wash the cookware with warm water using brush and bake soda.
Cast iron is probably the most inexpensive cookware. It provides a non-toxic cooking surface that heats evenly and quickly. Once heated, a cast iron cookware maintains the heat for a long time and is ideal for slow cooking and deep-frying. The downside is that cast iron cookware can rust, stain and rough when exposed to air, moisture and certain foods. Do not wash your cast-iron with soap and water. Wipe it with a clean paper towel instead. To put off rust, eliminate any excess moisture from the surface and coat it with oil before storing.
Cookware is an essential commodity in any kitchen. From boiling milk to cooking your daily meal, you require cookware while performing a range of duties in your kitchen. The term cookware refers to any food containers used for preparing food in the kitchen. The class of cookware comprises a whole range of containers such as: saucepans, frying pans, cooking vessels, griddles, roasting pans, woks, etc. Different varieties of cookware are available today to match various types of functional applications. The cost and the performance of any cookware product vary according to its material. If the thermal conductivity of the material is high, the food will cook faster. Hence, the price of such cookware is higher. Different materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, copper, carbon steel, aluminium etc. are used for the manufacturing of cookware. Every metal has its own advantages and disadvantages. Aluminium has good thermal conductivity but less than that of copper. Whereas, cast iron can withstand high temperatures but provides slow heating.
