Pros and Cons of Ceramic & Stainless Steel Cookware

Ceramic as well as Stainless Steel Cookware, both are highly recommended but which one will work best for you?

The popularity of stainless steel is all pervasive. It is omnipresent in all Indian kitchens, sneaking from cabinets, languidly sitting on the stovetop and proudly placed on the dining table. Whether it is for frying the equally popular pakodas, or preparing everyone’s favourite "shahi paneer", stainless steel cookware is the most trusted cooking ally. But slowly and steadily other cookware materials are also diverting Indian home chefs’ attention; one of the cookware materials, in particular, is ceramic cookware.

Ceramic cookware looks glossy and is available in different radiant hues and to enhance their appeal, they are also made from 100% natural minerals. A total steal, right?

So, should you replace all your stainless steel cookware with this new-found, gorgeous looking cookware?

Let’s find out!

Contrary to the popular opinion, Ceramic cookware is not made of clay. They are actually metal cookware that has been finished in a 100% natural ceramic coating. And this “coating” gives the cookware an edge over their counterparts. Because this coating is free of PTFE and PFO (commonly called Teflon) as well as heavy metals. In addition, the mineral coating on ceramic pans is naturally slick so your foods won’t stick.

Ceramic cookware can also endure high temperature, meaning they can easily go from cooktop into the oven and right on your table, all the while looking extremely pretty.

Stainless steel cookware, on the other hand, is widely used products that are attributed to create quality dishes. Stainless steel isn’t susceptible to corrosion so it’s more durable than other cookware materials.
