Whether you are an “occasional cook” or a “foodie,” it helps to know about the benefits and advantages of enamel coated cookware.
The casual cook is probably frustrated and discouraged by the task of cleaning and scrubbing stainless steel, aluminum or cast iron pots and pans. If you’re the ‘foodie’, you’ll want to spend more time enjoying the food and your guests.
Stainless steel, aluminum and cast iron pots and pans offer no resistance to heat. As a result, cooking at high temperatures causes food to stick. This makes cleanup a hassle and detracts from meal prep time. The first noticeable benefit of enamel coated cookware is the smooth, shiny feel on the outside of the pots and pans. This glossy finish, both inside and out, is added for two important reasons. The first is that it allows you to cook at high temperatures. Food does not stick, making cleanup much easier and you can use recipes that require more intense heat adding more variety to your meals.
Another benefit of enamel coated cookware is its resistance to oxidation. The thick, shiny feel that is part of enameled cookware prevents oxidation to extend the life of the pot or pan. Enamel cookware is known to be highly durable and the exterior texture can stop damage from your kitchen items affecting the cookware.
Adding to the advantages of enameled cookware is style. Enamel cookware comes in a variety of stylish, contemporary colors. Pots and pans come in a variety of shapes and sizes. If your cooking needs are simple, you may be well served with 2-3 basic pots or pans. If you like to braise, roast, sauté, grill, or fry, there’s a pot, skillet, grill, or broiler that’s perfect for you. With various sizes, you can find a shallow pan designed for grilling or a deeper pan for frying. You can find larger pots for making stock or soups. The smaller ones are common for stews. Today’s kitchen designs often incorporate open shelving or cabinets with clear glass doors that allow you to showcase this modern style of cookware and add a stylish touch to your decor. Plain stainless steel, aluminum, or cast iron create a more “utility” look. In addition, the elegant appearance of enamel cookware allows you to take it directly from the stove or from the oven directly to the table.
If you want to enhance your cooking experience, then enamel coated cookware is right for you. It is one of the most popular types of cookware found in kitchens today. Cook your best with durable, rust-resistant, and oh-so-stylish pots, pans, and skillets.
