Ceramic, Stainless Steel or Non-Stick?

Cookware Sets – Ceramic,  Stainless Steel, or Non-Stick

It was finally time to throw away my old and very stained, scratched up cookware set.   It was finally time to say hello to a brand new, shiny, possibly bright coloured, spanking new set of pots and pans.  I was excited.  I was ready.  Well, I thought I was, until I realised that there are so many choices, so many decisions, reviews and research that you have to plough through before you can actually make a purchase. When buying cookware sets the choices are ceramic, stainless steel, or non-stick.

Well with my research, reading, re-reading and comparing finally behind me, I can now share what I found out.  Now, let me make clear that I am not a chef, nor am I an expert cook.  I am just sharing with you what I happened to come upon when doing my due diligence in obtaining information that was relevant to my purchase of cookware pan sets.

My first and main question was which, or what type of set should I buy.  Ceramic, Stainless Steel or Non-stick?  I had heard of them all but I really didn’t have the faintest idea of what the difference between each of them was or what benefit each would be to me.  I decided to compare the differences within the T-fal range.

The most durable coating suitable for all cooking utensil.  Ceramic non-stick interior promotes healthy cooking by lessening the need for fats and oils and the heavy gauge aluminium construction offers efficient cooking, even heat distribution and durable usage.  T-fals range is PTFE-Free, PFOA-Free and Cadmium-Free.  Safe for all cooking methods except induction.  The cooking surface is able to reach 700 Degree F, it is oven safe to 350 Degree F, as well as Dishwasher Safe.
