Anolon Ultra Clad Cookware

Anolon Ultra Clad cookware is healthy, dishwasher safe, induction ready, stylish and being fully clad with aluminum, a fantastic performer. Cooks will love Anolon Ultra Clad. I’m a big fan of stainless steel cookware and it’s great to see Anolon with more entries of stainless steel to their product line-up. Unlike other stainless steel cookware that is clad only on the bottom, Anolon Ultra Clad is clad with aluminum all the way up the side walls. This is a great benefit for cooks because it distributes heat not just on the bottom but all around the food. A cook will use a lower heat setting when making rice, oatmeal or other thick sauces or foods. 

Anolon Ultra Clad Cookware

  • Stylish exterior combines polished stainless steel with a classic black nonstick band
  • Crafted from three layers of metals–two layers of stainless steel sandwiching layer of heat-conducting aluminum
  • Professional-quality, domed stainless steel lid locks in moisture and flavor; comfortable silicone rubber handles for a cool touch
  • Dishwasher safe; oven safe to 400 degrees F; limited lifetime warranty

Anolon Ultra Clad Cookware

Anolon Ultra Clad cookware is fully clad stainless steel cookware with a heat distributing aluminum layer not just on the bottom but also up the side walls. This gives a cook the maximum control of heat and it uses less power also. Anolon Ultra Clad cookware is stylish and it has great performance.

Emeril Pro-Clad Cookware by All-Clad

Emeril Pro-Clad cookware, by All-Clad, is professional grade cookware home cooks will love. It is healthy cookware that is easy to use. What makes the Emeril Pro-Clad cookware stand-out is that it is fully clad with an aluminum core not just on the bottom of the cookware, but all the way up the sides as well. This allows the cook to use less heat and provides a more even cooking temperature that surrounds the food. This comes in very handy when trying to make thicker sauces, soups, rice, oatmeal, or any food that is thick. Bottom only clad cookware can scorch or burn thick foods if the cook is not careful.  

Emeril Pro-Clad Cookware

The Emeril Pro-Clad cookware features flared rims for clean pouring. The tempered glass lids makes it easy to monitor the cooking progress and are oven safe to 350 degree F. The pro-clad stainless steel cookware is oven safe to 550 degree F. Cooks will love the ergonomically designed handles for secure and comfortable grip. The handles are permanently attached with stainless steel rivets. Emeril pro-clad cookware is suitable for gas, electric, ceramic glass, or induction stovetops. It is dishwasher safe and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Emeril Pro-Clad Cookware

This is my favorite Emeril cookware. Stainless steel is a healthy cookware material and being fully clad means all types of cooks will love it. It can take high temperatures on the stovetop and in the oven. Please note the difference of oven-safe temperatures for the glass lids and the cookware itself. Check out the Emeril pro-clad cookware set below.

Farberware Classic Cookware

Farberware Classic cookware is a slightly redesigned version of what folks used ages ago. It is durable, inexpensive, and simply works. I have some Farberware Classic cookware handed down to me from my parents and I still use it to this day. It must be over 40 years old. The new designs offer easier pour lips and strainers built in to some lids.

Farberware Classic Cookware

For budget-minded consumers a Farberware Classic cookware set is a steal. The cookware set mentioned on this page is very good and pretty complete. The nonstick skillets cannot take medium high or high heat. A regular stainless steel skillet would be able to handle higher heat cooking like saute, pan frying or pan roasting.

Farberware Millennium Cookware

Farberware Millennium cookware is a modern version of their classic stainless steel cookware line. It comes in both stainless steel and nonstick versions. I do like that it comes in both because I always recommend stainless steel, but I also recommend nonstick for those times when one cooks delicate foods like fish and eggs. One can get the Farberware Millennium stainless steel cookware set and a Farberware Millennium nonstick skillet or two.

Farberware Millennium Cookware

The tulip share and glass lids are attractive and functional. The thick aluminum core in the base helps spread out the heating element and removes any possible hot spots. Farberware Millennium cookware is liked by users and comes at a very good low price.

Choosing a Stainless Steel Fry Pan

A stainless steel fry pan or skillet is the choice for many chefs. The stainless steel frying pan is often the workhorse in restaurants and home kitchens. A quality skillet offers an attractive appearance, great heat distribution, and easy cleanup. Whether you saute, make crepes, or pan fry, a stainless steel skillet is a great tool to use. You can’t get the fond for sauces from a nonstick pan as you can with stainless steel.

All-Clad D5 Stainless Steel Fry Pan

Frying Pan Basics

Frying pans are typically sized 7″ to 14″, and have sloped sides. The sloped sides make it easy for turning, flipping, and releasing foods. A similar sized pan but with straight sides is a sauté pan. The frying pan is great for frying eggs, searing, or browning with oils, butter, or liquids. A stainless steel frying pan with its attractive shiny surface fits the decor of many homes.

Why Choose a Stainless Steel Fry Pan

Stainless steel cookware is lightweight, non-reactive to foods, healthy, dishwasher safe, and works on or in a stove or induction unit. Because it is not good at distributing heat, a quality stainless steel frying pan will be clad with layers of copper and/or aluminum, at least on the bottom if not up the side walls also. Quality stainless steel is referred to as “18/10” because it contains 18% chromium and 10% nickel. 18/10 stainless steel is best on the inside, and a magnetic or 18/0 stainless steel on the outside for induction cooking. Because stainless steel is non-porous, and not coating with chemicals or nonstick surface treatments, it is considered a healthy cookware.

Characteristics of a Stainless Steel Frying Pan

All-Clad Stainless Steel Fry Pan

While a standard stainless steel frying pan does not have a nonstick interior surface, proper cleaning and heat levels will avoid food sticking to the frying pan. Quality aluminum or copper layered frying pans distribute heat so well, manufacturers recommend using just low to medium heat. Preheating the skillet for a couple of minutes first will heat the pan adequately for most purposes. The preheating closes the pores of the metal surface reducing the chance of food sticking. The polished surface makes the stainless steel frying pan easy to clean, inside and out. Like most metal cookware, it is not recommended to add salt directly to the stainless steel fry pan. Rather, add salt to liquids or foods already being cooked.

Cleaning a Stainless Steel Frying Pan

Most stainless steel skillets are dishwasher safe. Even so, hand washing is recommended. Usual cleaning involves immersing the stainless steel frying pan into warm sudsy water, and clean with a fine powder cleanser like Bon Ami or Bar Keepers Friend. Rub in a circular motion from the inside outwards. Dry the pan immediately. Do not use oven cleaners, bleaches, or steel wool.

The stainless steel frying pan is found in the homes of many chefs and serious home cooks. It is versatile, easy to clean and a safe alternative to nonstick surfaces. Look for 18/10 stainless steel with aluminum or copper layers.

Happy Cooking!

 

Choosing Stainless Steel Cookware Sets

Stainless steel cookware sets offer durability, versatility, and style. Stainless steel is a popular choice due to its healthy non-porous surface, appearance, dishwasher safe clean-up, and durability. Like cookware sets made of other materials, they usually include 6 to 14 pieces, lids included. Whether buying an individual piece or a complete stainless steel cookware set, be sure to look for quality. Higher quality stainless steel will always be “18/10” on the inside and clad with either copper and/or aluminum.

Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel Cookware Set

Why Choose Stainless Steel Cookware Sets

Stainless steel cookware sets are healthy, durable, attractive, and versatile. When properly cared for, it lasts a very long time, and is easy to maintain. Stainless steel is dishwasher safe. Be sure to check out the manufacturers care and use instructions, as well as pick up a quality stainless steel cleaner.

Stainless Steel Cookware Set Tips

Stainless Steel Frying Pans

Cookware sets can include both a small and large frying pan. You will see a variety of names for these items including frying pans, skillets, and omelet pans. The small frying pan will usually be around 8″ while the large will either be 10″ or 12″. They make some as large as 14″, but are rarely included in cookware sets.

Sauce and Sauté Pans

The sauté pan looks much like a skillet, but the side walls are straight up, and they can come with a lid. The sauce pan is what most would call a small pot. These vary in size from 1 quart to 4 quarts.

Stock Pots

The stock pot is large, usually around 6 – 8 quarts. They are great for making homemade soups, boiling water for corn on the cob, pasta, or other large items.

What to Look For

Small stainless steel cookware sets usually include one or two frying pans, one or two sauce pans, and either a large sauce pan or a stock pot. Larger cookware sets will include both a large and small frying pan, one or two sauté pans, two or three saucepans, and a stock pot.

Happy Cooking!

 

Stainless Nonstick Cookware is a Powerful Combination

Stainless nonstick cookware is a new trend gaining popularity. Manufacturers today have uncovered the secret to bonding a nonstick coating to stainless steel. The end result is quality cookware that is easy on the cook, attractive and easy to clean. Nonstick surfaces are usually only applied to stainless steel skillets. A few brands, like the Scanpan CTX product line, are complete stainless nonstick cookware sets.

Stainless Nonstick Cookware

Quality stainless steel, 18/10 construction, clad with aluminum or copper on the inside, has been a favorite of chefs for a long time. Households on the “go” have enjoyed the advantages of nonstick surfaces like Teflon and T-fal. In the past, it has been difficult to bond the nonstick surface to stainless steel cookware because of its smooth non-porous surface. Today that has changed, and manufacturers are producing lines of cookware blending this powerful combination.

Clad Stainless Steel Heat Distribution and Appearance

Stainless steel is an attractive cookware with its shiny or brushed surface. The outside is easy to clean in the dishwasher, by hand washing with warm sudsy water, or a stainless steel cleaning compound. When clad with aluminum or copper, the stainless steel cookware produces precise heating control and even heat distribution.

Nonstick Interior

Busy cooks who do not want to spend much time scrubbing their cookware opt for a nonstick surface. Quality nonstick surfaces are produced with multiple layers and a bonding layer for durability. As with most, but not all nonstick surfaces, the use of low to medium heat is essential. Do not use metal or sharp utensils on most nonstick cookware.

Stainless Nonstick Cookware Options

Scanpan CTX Stainless Nonstick Cookware Set

Today several quality brands have products available. The Calphalon Contemporary line has a brushed stainless steel exterior with a light colored nonstick finish on the inside. Farberware has their Millennium line. Anolon has select pieces. As these lines become popular, and the advantages of this powerful combination become known, more manufacturers will introduce product offerings. My favorite by large measures is the Scanpan CTX stainless nonstick cookware set. It is chef grade premium cookware that can be used at higher heats, dishwasher safe, and a real joy to cook with (picture above).

Pricing

The prices of stainless nonstick cookware is higher than some other materials. The bonding process, quality stainless steel, and a high end nonstick surface makes a powerful cookware combination, but at a slightly higher price. For example, at the time of this writing, a Calphalon 8 piece cookware set runs $599.00. In the same product line, the 8 inch omelet pan runs $85. On the lesser expensive side, a Farberware Millennium 12 inch skillet runs only $39.99. Anolon products tend to be priced in the middle. My favorite Scanpan CTX 10-piece cookware set will set one back around $899. The Cuisinart GreenGourmet has a stainless steel line that is also top quality, though not dishwasher safe like the Scanpan CTX, seen above

Cooks now have access to a cookware with a powerful blend – stainless nonstick cookware. Excellent heat distribution of clad stainless steel with the ease of use of nonstick interior finishes makes a tempting combination.
