Such pots has its perks, for instance one cannot cook veggies with it or it will turn and it has a high chemical reactions to high acid foods such as wine and tomatoes.

  • Copper

Copper is a very great heat conductor which makes it heat faster than any known metals. Pots made from copper are of different thickness between 1 mm to 2.5mm wall thickness. Copper does not store heat, which makes it reverse thermal flows immediately upon removal from heat.

  • Aluminium

Aluminium weighs less than other metals, which makes it a good thermal conductor. Aluminium can be combined with other metals copper, bronze or magnesium.

  • Stainless Steel

  • Carbon Steel

Theses cookwares can hammered into a thin sheets of dense material, which gives it strength and improved heat distribution. Carbon steel accommodates high, dry heat for such operations as dry searing.

  • Metal

Theses pots are made from different metals to enable it conduct heat very well so that the flvours of your food doesn’t change.
