When you cook, how much attention do to take to the ingredients? And how fresh they are and whether they’re organic or not, or what nutrients they contain? Today, we all care about those things, and we have the knowledge available to us to make the right decisions when we cook, thanks to the quantity of information on the labels and the amount of info we can find online. How many of us consider the pots and pans we use with the same level of care and attention? Why not? The flavor of the food can be affected by the materials used in the pots and pans we cook our meals in. And there are health issues to consider.
Recent studies suggest that Teflon and copper pans contain potentially toxic chemicals that can lead to short and long-term issues for our health. By contrast, stone cookware is a lot safer as it combines ceramics and natural stones for a much healthy meal. You can also use less oil when you cook with stone cookware, and this type of cookware wipes clean after use. Unfortunately, some manufacturers still use chemicals in the construction of their stone cookware, which is why we’ve come up with a list of the top five brands you can trust.
Number 5 – Techef Infinity Collection Fry Pan
The pans in this collection are made from a hybrid of Teflon ceramic and mineral surfaces for affordable non-stick cookware. The evenly weighted pans distribute heat superbly, especially if used on induction stoves. It’s multi-layered for durability and uses stone and ceramic materials to produce an effective non-stick surface. The only downside here is longevity. Other pans on the market that costs a little more will last a lot longer.
Number 4 - Swiss Diamond Induction Nonstick Fry Pan
This pan has been produced in the Swiss alps for the past 20 years, so there’s nothing standard about them. The diamond-enhanced non-stick coating is durable for long-term use, so you won’t need to invest in a new pan very often. The diamond-enhanced coating browns off your food as well as stainless steel, and it conducts heat more efficiently than copper. It’s lightweight, so you’ll have no problem tossing pancakes with it, but it holds heat just as well as its cast-iron counterparts.
Number 3 – Stone Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri
If you cook a lot on a medium to low temp, this is the pan for you. Whether you’re stir-frying or cooking eggs, keeping the temperature low works best because this pan contains PTFE. That’s the synthetic polymer that gives the pan its non-stick quality, but it’s also why many people are moving away from Teflon and towards stone cookware. This pan’s arguable safer than Teflon as it doesn’t contain some of the other controversial chemicals found in Teflon products.
Number 2 – Stoneline Xtreme Series
The scratch-proof surface of the cookware in the Stoneline Xtreme Series is one of the best reasons to buy them. That makes them durable so if you’re already a Stoneline customer, take the step up from the basic package. This range meets the highest European standards because it’s PFOA-free, non-toxic, and lead-free. You can cook with an extremely low amount of fat or grease, and the thickness of each piece allows them to heat quickly and retain heat better than their rivals.
Number 1 – Stoneline 6588 Cookware Set with Glass Lids
Stoneline makes the best stone cookware. That’s obvious to anyone who’s cooked with it and then switched to a rival. The trademarked pan surface made from real stone particles provides scratch-proof pans that resist burning. Food won’t stick while you’re frying, and you won’t need much oil to cook. The details sell this set. The coating is layered over aluminum and set in an anthracite exterior. You can ergonomic handles for easy control, and the glass lids, which have been treated to resist high temps, fit perfectly. They’re oven and dishwasher safe, and they’re guaranteed for 12 years. The non-stick coating may become less effective over the years, but the pans will be just as sturdy 12 years after you bought them.
