Yanodizedou can update your kitchen with this great looking cookware set from Calphalon called Calphalon 13-pc. Commercial Hard-Anodized  best Cookware reviews Set. The charcoal-gray matte finish of the Commercial Hard-Anodized series not only looks sophisticated but is impressive in performance:  Pan from this set can sears meats over medium heat, cooks evenly, and stays stick-resistant without having a nonstick finish that can eventually peel. Moreover, hard-anodized pots and pans are safe to use with metal utensils and under the broiler.

Heavy-gauge aluminum is responsive to temperature changes. These pans feature the original Calphalon hard anodized surface, which is non stick without the Teflon coating and worry about the peeling. You do not have to also worry about seasoning your hard anodized cookware as you would for cast iron. It does not rust, or react to food discoloration. It is oven and broiler safe.

What is 18/10 Stainless Steel Cookware mean?

What is 18/10 stainless steel mean? and what is grade 304 and 316? Do they mean same thing?

We recommend 18/10 stainless cookware Stainless steel is actually an alloy of metals including steel, carbon, nickel and chromium combined. There are three type of stainless steel available.

1) 18/0: 18% chromium, 0% nickel, 82% other metals
2) 18/8: 18% chromium, 8 % nickel, 74% other metals
3) 18/10: 18% chromium, 10% nickel, 72% other metals

Detailed explanation:

Steel is an alloy that combines various metals including iron, carbon and other metals. Stainless steel made from various metals to make final combination of material to be stronger, harder, greater resistance to corrosion and rust.

Chromium gives resistance to corrosion and rust and nickel gives its shine. Hence, many nickle free cookware will be not shinier. Many experts believe that 18/10 combination meaning 18% chromium and 10% nickel with other combination metal provides the best cookware that is stainless, corrosion and rust free and shiny enough to see your face in it.

To add more confusion, new numbering and naming standard has changed how stainless steel products are being built and marketed. New series is called 300 series which is in addition 18/10, 18/8 and 18/0 stainless steel products.

Although 18/8 stainless steel is similar to 304 grade, and 18/10 is somewhat similar to 316 grade steel, but % of chromium and nickle and carbon have little wider range and varies a little.  One of the clad or multi ply cookware set we like is Emeril’s Pro Clad Triple Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set
