Help! Which material should you look for in a saucepan?

Help! Which material should you look for in a saucepan? | Cookware Shop | Scoop.it
What kind of saucepans would be best for you? Cast iron? Stainless steel? Aluminium?

There’s plenty to choose from. In fact, the choice is so wide that it can be a little bewildering, and they all have their advantages and disadvantages. To make things a little easier for you, here’s a brief overview of what’s available in the world of cookware materials. 

Let’s begin with the oldest type of saucepan material:

Cast-iron pans have been around for hundreds of years, but are still popular today, and with good reason. Cast-iron pans is very tough and durable. It also offers excellent heat conductivity and retention, meaning that heat is distributed evenly and steadily, which is just right for long simmering times. Well looked after, it can last for many years and, with care, remains naturally non-stick. On the downside it can take a bit more effort to keep a cast iron saucepan clean. They also take a while to heat up and can react with food, especially the more acidic items. Enamelled cast iron eliminates these problems, however.

Probably the most popular saucepan material is stainless steel. This is an alloy that includes small amounts of nickel and chromium, making it highly resistant to corrosion. It doesn’t react with the foods you cook, is hard wearing, dishwasher-safe and can be fairly inexpensive. The drawbacks of stainless steel saucepans are that they are poor conductors of heat, but manufacturers address this by adding an aluminium or copper core to enhance heat transference.

Aluminium saucepans are light yet strong, inexpensive, corrosion resistant and conduct heat well. This material can, however, react to acidity or alkalinity. This drawback can be addressed by choosing anodized aluminium, rather than the raw form. This type of saucepan has aluminium oxide applied to its surface to make it nonporous and nonreactive. This a slightly costlier option and the coating can eventually wear away.

Hopefully this will make your choice easier. Just remember that there are no perfect saucepans, only those that are right for you.

The ultimate guide to buying your next knife set

When it comes to choosing your next
kitchen knife set, the options can be a little daunting. As well as the
different brands on offer, there are also many different styles and materials
to choose between. Alongside pots and pans, knives are some of your
most used kitchen items, so you want to know that you’re making an investment
in a set that will perform well, and that you can use for as long as possible.
Here are some of the basics to bear in mind when you’re making your
decision. 
Basic categories
Most people will be looking for a standard professional knife set for their
kitchen, which at the very least includes a paring knife, utility knife and chef’s
knife. As well as these, many modern professional knife sets also
include a bread knife, carving knife, and santoku (a broad-bladed, multipurpose
knife from Japan). It’s a good idea to invest in a set that gives you a
sharpening steel, as this will allow you to prolong the lifespan of your
knives. 
If you lean towards a more specialised type of cooking there are many knife
sets that can cater to your needs. A Japanese knife set, for example, includes
razor sharp blades with integrated holes to make delicately chopping vegetables
and sushi preparation easy. You could also consider choosing a more robust
metal type, such as Damascus steel, which maintains an edge for longer, and is
practically indestructible. 
Taking care of your knives
Knives naturally lose their edge, however well-made they are. This is why it’s
so important to own your own sharpening steel. Contrary to popular belief,
using a steel doesn’t sharpen the metal of the knife - instead it removes a
microscopic build up of chemicals that forms on the blade’s surface over time.
To sharpen, simply draw the steel along the side of the blade several times
until its edge returns. It’s also important to choose a good housing for your
knife set. The traditional wooden block design is much better than keeping
knives in drawers, where they can scrape against one another. Better still is a
magnetic knife housing, which allows you to attach your knives safely with no
direct blade contact. 
Stylish options
You may also be surprised to find that there are many different styles of
knives - including coloured blades and inventively-shaped knife boxes. So check
out the options to find something that best suits the feel of your kitchen.

The perfect Easter Casserole recipe

Many
people associate Easter treats with enriched breads and chocolate eggs, but
there’s also a traditional savoury feast that serves as a great way to start
the day. The Easter Casserole has many different variations, but the central
idea remains the same; all of the components of a great fried breakfast baked
together in one casserole pot. Here
is a step by step guide to making your perfect Easter Casserole, along with a
couple of fun variations you might like to try. 

First for the
ingredients:
8 slices of bread or brioche, cubed
100 grams butter
450ml milk
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard
5 eggs
200 grams grated cheddar cheese
500 grams sausage
250 grams mushrooms

Now for the recipe:
- Cook your sausages and mushrooms first and set
aside. 
- Melt the butter and mix with the chopped
bread. 
- Grease the bottom of a good quality casserole
dish. 
- Add the sausage, mushrooms and bread to the
dish. Also add ¾ of the cheese. 
- Beat the eggs, season, and add the milk. 
- Pour the beaten mixture over the
casserole. 
- Top with the remaining ¼ of the grated
cheese. 
- Cover with foil and leave overnight in the
fridge. 
- Bake for one hour at 180°C, gas mark 4. 
The casserole should be ready to serve after cooling
for a few minutes. Making the casserole the night before not only gives a
pleasant dense texture to the dish, but also makes preparing breakfast
easy.  Delicious
variations for your less traditional Easter Casserole Dish:


Spicy Spanish breakfast
If you prefer your breakfast to have a little
bit more spice, a great alternative is to use some skinned chorizo alongside
your conventional sausage. Also fry up some diced onions and peppers with the
mushrooms, and dust the top of the casserole with some cayenne pepper just
before baking to create a dish that’s a little sweeter and deliciously
spicy. 
Hash browns and bacon
Another popular variation is to use hash browns
as your base rather than bread. In this instance, it’s important that you cook
the hash browns beforehand, and layer them at the bottom of the casserole pot.
Crisp up some bacon by coating with butter and grilling, and crumble this into
the topping to add some texture and saltiness to the topping too.
So there you have it - Easter doesn’t have to be
all about gorging on chocolate eggs. These recipes give you a savoury treat
that really feels like a celebration. You can try your own personal variations
too; all you need is a good casserole pot and a bit of imagination to make your
ideal feast.

Tips for taking care of non-stick cookware

One of the greatest inventions for your kitchen in
the 20th century is, of course, non-stick cookware. Revolutionising everything
from scrambled eggs to stir fries, these slippery little carbon-fluorine bonds
take the scrubbing and elbow-grease out of cooked meals. However, most people
aren’t familiar with the correct way to take care of their non-stick cookware, pans and
utensils. Below are some handy hints to keep your cookware set in better shape,
get your food tasting better (and healthier) and extending the longevity of
your purchases.


First of all, let’s talk storage. The ideal way
to store Teflon coated items is to hang them, so they’re not in contact with
anything, especially other metals. If that’s not possible in your home, try to
store them separately in a cabinet, possibly lined with a tea towel or napkin,
to prevent scratching. This will keep the non-stick layer intact.


Secondly, don’t cook at temperatures that are
too high. This is not only because slow-cooked food retains more flavour, but
also because high temperatures could crack the coated layer. Another
temperature-related tip is for after cooking: once you’ve finished, let the pan
cool before you wash it. Just like with glass, transitioning quickly from a hot
stove top to cold water in a sink can ruin the cookware set. Allow the utensil to
cool to room temperature, and then clean it.


Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, let’s
talk about cleaning. Never use harsh cleaning products on your cookware set, and definitely don’t
scrape or use anything abrasive. Agents like bleach will damage the surface of
the cookware. The best way to keep
your utensils clean is to use simmering water and washing up liquid. Use your
hands or a cloth and be gentle. You want to get the longest possible life out
of your purchase, and this comes from a little bit of care. If you’ve got any
stains that won’t budge in the sink, you can use a washcloth or sponge and a
little bit of grease. However, it’s important to rinse and dry after using
grease or oil on your pans, as residue will cook into the surface and carbonise,
causing food to stick. The aim of the game is to retain that slippery,
non-stick surface for use time and time again.


So, next time you purchase a non-stick cookware set,
remember these storage, temperature and cleaning tips. They will keep your kitchenware
in good shape and your food looking and tasting great.

The saucepan buying guide

Perfect for
stewing meat, boiling potatoes, heating soups and, or course, creating
delicious sauces, saucepans are one of the most essential items in any kitchen
and a must-have tool for any keen cook. 
Though there are plenty of cheap, basic
saucepans available, there is a huge variety of higher quality, specially
designed products to choose from too, giving chefs, mums and aspiring culinary
geniuses the tools they need to succeed. 
If you’re considering investing in a new set of saucepans but
aren’t sure where to start, take a quick look at this handy buying guide. 
Compatibility

Before you start shopping for your new
saucepans, take a few moments to read the instructions for your cooker. Some
appliances, like induction cookers, only work with certain materials, so your
choice of saucepans will be limited from the start. 
If you have an AGA type cooker at home, pans
with thick bases are perfect for keeping the heat in and cooking your food
thoroughly. If you have an electric cooker or a hotplate, choose pans with
wide, flat bases to ensure as much heat is transferred as possible. 
Materials 
When selecting a new saucepan, you’ll generally
have a choice between aluminium, cast iron, stainless steel, glass and copper
cookware. Each of these materials has its own range of benefits, so it’s up to
you to decide which suits your needs best. 
Tough and durable aluminium cookware is suitable
for almost all cookers – though it won’t work with induction hobs. Stainless
steel is another very versatile material, especially when the saucepan is
finished with a high quality non-stick coating. 
Cast iron is a fantastic material for cookware, however iron saucepans can
be heavy so it’s best to avoid using them on ceramic hobs as they could damage
the delicate surface. 
Glass is ideal for cooks who like to transfer
their creations directly from the cooker to the freezer for storing, though it
does take longer to heat up than other materials initially. 
As copper is an excellent conductor of heat,
it’s ideal for use with all cookers. However, the material requires specialist
care so make sure you read the instructions before you begin. 
Sizes
The size of saucepan you choose will depend on
your needs and the space you have available for storage. 
Ideally, you should invest in a set of at least
three saucepans of various sizes. This should allow you to cook almost anything
you try your hand at.
