Home > Different types of Aluminum Cookware

Aluminum cookware has been around for quite a while and has received much improvement since it became available. Together with cast iron and Carbon Steel Cookware, it is a greatly favored kind of cookware. In fact, in excess of 50% of all cookware in the market is composed of aluminum. Certain research has hinted that aluminum can be a cause of Alzheimer's disease, however, there is no definitive evidence that aluminum cookware plays any part in the onset of this ailment. For safety reasons, the use of aluminum pans when cooking very acidic or salty food should to be avoided since low quality aluminum cookware may exude small portions of aluminum as the pans become pitted.

Anodized or hard anodized Aluminum Cookware is the best and this is the kind which I advise that you buy. Hard anodizing results from an electro-chemical procedure which enhances the natural oxide film found in aluminum. In addition, this procedure results in the aluminum having a hard, non-oxidizing finish that does not stick and is resistant to scratching.

Pressed aluminum costs the least and is generally located in the cookware section of a supermarket or some other retail establishment. Its sale price is the cheapest and it is known for its screw-in handle and thin construction. In addition, it comprises the highest percentage of aluminum utensils being manufactured today.

Cast aluminum, which is worth buying, is a slower and more expensive process but the end result is that it is normally thicker than pressed aluminum. The bottom and rims can be made thicker than the sidewalls also. That makes it harder to to warp or "go out of round". Cast aluminum is more porous than pressed aluminum which makes for better heat retention. For cookware, other than copper, Aluminum Cookware has the best conductivity. Careful when buying these first two types of aluminum cookware, make sure you read the label. Most types are either polished or coated which makes it very difficult to tell what you are getting and you do not want to pay more than you should.
