Aluminium is the most widespread metal found in the earth. It’s widely used to make cooking utensils as its high reactivity leads to formation of aluminium oxide when it reacts with oxygen. The aluminum oxide prevents it from further corrosion as it acts as a protective layer. Moreover, owing to its excellent thermal conductivity, affordability and light-weight, aluminium cookware forms the bulk of most kitchens.
Here are some of our Chef recommended aluminium-based cookware that you can bring home this Diwali or use as Diwali gift items
Stainless Steel: The most competent substance for making cookware is stainless steel. It’s non-reactive, highly durable and inexpensive for all models of cookware. A mix of various metals like chromium, nickel, manganese, aluminium, silicon, and sulphur; the combination of which decides if it's food grade or not. Cooking wet sauces, especially tomato, citrus or acid-based ones will cause nickel to seep into your food. However, Pots and Pans offers you 100% nickel free stainless steel cookware range with zero chemical coating. You can easily opt for the safest ranges from Meyer in the form of SELECT and TRIVANTAGE
Cast Iron: Legend of our grandmother’s kitchen, cast iron has shared memories of childhood with all of us.
