How do you buy the best Pots and Pans?

Do you ever wonder why your pans break after a few months of simple usage? Have you ever thought how should look for the best pot and pan to buy or any other utensil that can last you at least for the amount of money you paid for it? Well, there’s a strategy! Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t some war where you win only with a good plan, the strategy is some basic things you should look out for whenever you buy anything. They are very handy in case you don’t have a bag full of money, as they will certainly save your time and your money.

The first thing is to check the grade. Whenever you like a pot or pan, turn it upside down and look at its base. There will be a number which signifies its grade. The grade of a utensil indicates its quality and hardness. A higher grade means more durability. The most common is 315, but check others like 320 if they are in the same price range. Remember, grades are only for stainless steel, aluminum and carbon utensils don’t have any.

The second thing to keep an eagle’s eye out for is the reactivity. This topic is taught very rarely by vendors and chefs. All the materials which make a pot or pan are reactive with a certain type of food. For example, Aluminum is reactive with tomatoes. So, research the internet and get a utensil which is suitable for the type of food you cook. Stainless steel is not reactive to any type of food material, so it is the best choice in this regard.

The third thing is to look for utensils you can care for. If you are a full-time worker or a student who lives alone, you need pots that don’t require much time to clean, as you don’t want to spend half an hour scrubbing the bottom of your pan. Stainless steel is again the winner in this situation, as food sticks on carbon very easily, while aluminum gets burnt fairly quickly. If, however, you are a part-timer or a house wife, getting carbon utensils is best for you, as they are durable and are not reactive to many types of food. Stainless steel is good, but won’t last you long.

The foremost thing to look out for is the durability. This one is the base of our whole article. The higher the durability, the more you have to spend on getting one, but will also save money as getting an expensive one is better than getting tons of cheap knock offs. The best in terms of durability is carbon, as it is coated with a thick layer of multiple metals.

That’s all! Now put the information you learned to good use. Whenever you go to the market, check the above things, and if the thing you like and want passes all of them, just go with it!
