1. Cookware Concerns:
What we might not be aware of is that every cookware is not arrayed to cook everything. Which is why even with an army of cookware, many times our food does not turn out as expected. The choice of an incorrect cookware to prepare something can either make it or break it. We make the majority of our cookware out of just a few basic materials: ceramics, aluminum, cast iron and stainless steel namely. Unfortunately, no single material can be an all-rounder for cooking all types of food. While cooking healthy meals, always keep in mind.
2. Strain of Stainless Steel:
Undoubtedly, stainless steel is the inexpensive crown of durability in any kitchen. However, always check if it is marked “Food Grade'' or not. If not food grade, then,' nickel' a common metal used as an alloy in stainless steel cookware might leach into your food. Some common names which shine in the realm of food-grade stainless steel are Nippon Steel (Japan). Nickel in food can be extremely detrimental to health. But if it's food-grade, then your cookware is completely non-reactive, highly durable and accompanies easy maintenance which makes it the most versatile cookware material in the kitchens around the world.
Look For: Food grade stainless steel cookware with ZERO nickel.
