By: Samantha Clark

Kitchen cookware is an important part of cooking, and an integral part of the kitchen. There are many different materials used in the manufacture of kitchen cookware. It is up to you decide on the best cookware that suits your cooking needs.

Cast iron cookware is cookware that is heavy, and inexpensive. The conduction of heat here is slow and even; thus making it best for use when cooking in the oven or stove. Copper cookware too conducts heat evenly and quickly but is not that heavy. Copper cookware is the better choice for frying and sauting; and is comparatively very pretty to look at.

Though you may find aluminum cookware an inexpensive, lightweight and heat responsive form of cookware, cooking in it tends to affect the taste of food. Stainless steel cookware is cookware that is strong, pretty and reasonably priced. It is usually a mixture of aluminum or copper core that helps in the conduction of heat.

The health conscious tend to find non-stick cookware the best type of kitchen cookware for their use as not much oil is needed when cooking. Moreover cleaning non-stick cookware is much easier as food does not tend to stick to the pan. However, it should be remembered that abrasive cleaners should not be used when cooking non-stick cookware.

Kitchen cookware is best for use in the kitchen; but if you wish to go camping, it is wise to invest in a set of camping cookware. This is because kitchen cookware may get damaged while camping. It is better choosing camping cookware that is versatile and tough. Camping cookware with tight-fitting cookware lids is also better as cooking food is faster and cheaper this way as you save on fuel consumption. It is also better buying camping cookware that mate and nest together for storage purposes.
