Stainless steel:

Easy to maintain, durable and easy to clean, stainless steel pots and pans are also safe options to cook food in. Stainless steel is an alloy of different metals such as iron, carbon, nickel and chromium, which when combined in the correct proportions, make the metal stronger and more durable. You need to, however, be careful about the amount of nickel and chromium in the composition as stainless steel cookware is sometimes polished with the metals to add shine, and the high amounts can leach into the food. While selecting stainless steel cookware, opt for those with a 304 grade. This means that it is comprised of not more than 0.8 per cent carbon and at least 50 per cent iron. You can also choose an 18/10 composition, with 18 per cent referring to chromium and 10 per cent to nickel. It is also best to replace any pan which has deep scratches in it as this can cause the metals to leach into your food.

Vessels that are safe to cook in and ones you need to avoid

We are particular about what we cook and the kind of ingredients that go into it, however, we often tend to ignore what metals and chemicals are used in the process of making the utensils we cook food in.

While it is difficult to get the perfect combination of cookware - one that is safe to cook in, is affordable and easy to maintain, it always helps to know what materials the vessels we cook in are made of:

Let us take a look at cookware that is safe to use, and others that should be avoided.

    Erin Morgenstern’s captivating new novel The Starless Sea refers to a “a book-centric fantasia” – and there is certainly a wonderfully eclectic mix of styles and forms in this month’s publications.Julian Barnes’s tale of La Belle Epoque, built around the story of the celebrated French doctor Samuel Pozzi, is fascinating history, biography and philosophy rolled into one. In The Man in the Red Coat, Barnes is the ideal guide to a hysterical “hyperventilating era” (1870-1914) when “prejudice could swiftly metastasise into paranoia”. It was also a period when the gun lobby wielded significant power in French politics. More than a century later, the United States has its own pro-gun president, who has boasted about owning a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
