Which type of cookware is better? From our research and experience, stainless steel cookware is better overall; it sears the food faster and it helps you make great pan sauces. Nonstick on the other hand, lends itself to cooking the foods that have a tendency to stick to the pan and burn such as eggs, omelets, pancakes, grilled cheese, crepes, etc.
Watch this demonstration and convince yourself:
|Durable (usually lifetime)||Durable if good quality|
|Food sticks sometimes||Food does not stick|
|Bright inside (easy to see food)||Dark inside (hard to see if fond is forming)|
|Looks beautiful||Not very good looking|
|Great for pan sauces||A good fond is difficult to achieve|
|Best overall cooking surface||Good for low fat cooking, eggs, pancakes, etc|
As you can see there is a pan for every thing. It’s all about using the right tool for your recipe.
