There are many wonderful things about cooking with anodized aluminum cookware.
Most people have heard of it, but are not familiar with its properties. They know that the name is longer and more complicated than others, so it’s got to be better.
The answer is yes, it is better. It is excitingly better. Better to cook with, clean with, work with, etc. We hope you look around to find out more.
Aluminum cookware has a natural protective layer. When the air hits the aluminum, a layer is formed that protects the pot or pan from corrosion, rust, and pitting.
Over time, however, this protective layer breaks down and goes away. With the layer gone, the pot or pan is now open to all the problems that normal pots and pans with a protective layer face.
The cookware will become pitted and useless.
What Is Anodized Aluminum Cookware
Anodized Aluminum Cookware is put through a complicated process.
The aluminum is placed in chemicals consisting of sulfuric acid and other compounds, then running an electrical current through them.
It results in a thicker and more protective layer. This layer lasts longer and resists corrosion, rust, and pitting for a longer time.
Why Choose Anodized Aluminum Cookware
- Non-stick surface makes cooking much easier – Have you ever tried to cook food on a non-stick surface? The food gets stuck and is hard to move.
- Easy to clean – Non stick makes clean up easy.
- Lasts longer than other pots and pans without protective surface – The anodization process makes a huge difference in the longevity of the pans.
- Retains more heat; better to cook with – The better heat distribution the better the food is cooked.
- Cheaper than steel and just as good – Spending less money on kitchen equipment is always better than spending more.
- Resistant to scratches – Scratches come easy so it is nice to not have to worry about them.
- Food won’t burn from sticking to the surface – Burning food is never a good thing.
- Tougher than steel – The more strength the your pan has, the better it will hold up to any challenge.
- Harder to dent than regular aluminum – Dents cause heat loss and uneven cooking. The less dents the better.
- Dishwasher safe – No one likes washing dishes by hand. Put it in a dishwasher.
