1. Factors that determine a cookware’s worth:
We often don’t pay attention to our cookware. All our focus is either on the recipes and how well are we replicating them or on the ingredients and their measurements. Between these two factors, we forget to mull over our cookware. But cookware gives the base and foundation to our food and inadvertently our health. A bad cookware- with toxins, nickels, BPA, PFOA and other harmful chemicals- will mar the quality of the food that we are cooking. Therefore, we need to be careful when we buy cookware. Here are the 5 parameters that need to considered while purchasing any cooking vessel:
2. Quality always comes first
Quality isn’t expensive, it is priceless. This totally justifies the significance of high-quality cookware that plays a significant role in our wellbeing. All our efforts invested in preparing a meal will go in vain if we don’t invest in good quality cookware. A premium cookware offers durability, ease of use, and safety while ensuring optimum satisfaction and comfort while cooking.
3. Safety Matters :
Cooking at home is considered to be healthier than ordering out, however, there’s one major way that could be ruining your efforts without your realisation: by using toxic cookware. The material or coating used in some pots and pans may be laden with chemicals and toxins that may harm you. Therefore, you should always buy cookware that is 100% safe. And you can only be certain about the safety by checking if the cookware has undergone quality assurance tests and has all the right certification from food authorities that vouch for its safety.
4. Cooking time :
In this fast paced world, we certainly need cookware that helps us cook fast. This is possible only if you purchase a high quality cookware with optimum heating. Heat conductivity determines the consistency of the food, therefore, the cookware should be such that it can immediately adjust to the varying flame of the stovetop without burning or sticking the food.
5. Easy maintenance :
The first thing that most of us sought for in cookware is how easy it is to wash, maintain and store. Pots and pans with minimum maintenance will make a huge difference in our cooking chores and kitchen time.
6. Different cookware for different cooking needs :
Do you think a single pan is fit for all types of cooking? Can you prepare curry in a tawa and a dosa in a kadai? Sounds disastrous! Therefore, even though you are under the impression that all the pans in the kitchen do the same thing- “cooking”, it’s not that simple. You need the right kind of cookware to make the right delicacy.
7. Must-have cookware for everyday cooking :
So, here are the top three types of cookware that you need in your kitchen. These cookware are right for all types of cooking and will ensure that you don’t have to depend on takeaways and online orders to fill your tummy! These are some of the essential pots and pans that will help you in preparing curries, making rotis and a lot more.
