Cooking In My Kitchen, Cookware Sets

Having the best cookware set for cooking

The true essence of a meal is not just merely based by the
artistic flaw of the chef but also the tools by his side.When it comes to
Easter, Thanksgiving dinner or just an ordinary meal with your family it pays
to have the best cookware set to use. Your kitchen can’t be called a kitchen without a well refined cookware set. Fortunately, there are several types of cookware
sets that you can choose; stainless steel, non-stick or enameled cast iron
sets. These are available to suite your individual requirements when it comes
to the art of cooking.

A complete cookware set ought to have at least complete
cooking vessels such as saucepans and frying pans, a good cooking pot with an
overcook edge on which the lids lies. The lid should also have a dripping edge
that avoids back flow of condensed fluids into the food. Every good cookware
should have a handle with a heat insulating core firmly riveted to the body, a
slightly angulated rim that facilitates the pouring of liquids, a surface of
your desire whether nonstick, stainless steel or cast iron each having its
benefits. In addition, it should have a well conductive core of aluminum and
copper.

Stainless steel sets are long-lasting, classically captivating
to the eyes. Stainless steel sets are multi-functional and can tackle nearly
every cooking; braising, browning, long hour cooking, pickling among others.
They are preferred in cooking because they are durable, require little
maintenance, and provide a good conductive distribution of heat. Nonetheless,
they offer challenges when it comes to stain removal during dish washing.

Nonstick sets are beneficial in both cooking and washing.
Cooking is made possible with little or no oil when you are using this set
without the risk of food sticking on the surface. It’s therefore exceptionally
easy to clean. Cooking made possible with little fat is healthy, reducing the
risk of obesity and cancers. Nevertheless, the durability of the non-sticking
material on the surface of the sets is low.

Enameled cast iron sets are all round kitchen tools having a
higher multipurpose than stainless steel sets. They are applicable in deep
frying, browning, long-hour cooking, sautéing, searing, braising, stewing, low
heat cooking or even beef roasting. This set serves my kitchen like a loyal
versatile servant! This set easily retains and evenly distributes heat with
high precision. It’s resistant to the corrosive effects of stirring and is oven
safe up to 500degree F. Despite its bulkiness, it proves to be good cookware set.

There are also other available cookware sets like uncoated
cast iron sets, carbon steel sets copper and aluminum sets that are set to
transform your cooking to a whole new level.

In conclusion, when it comes to a simple meal preparation or
an executive dish preparation, you can choose from a wide variety of cookware.

Cutting With Sharp Knives, Kitchen Champs

Chef Knife Reviews: My Top Two Kitchen Giants

I believe a chef’s knife is an essential multipurpose kitchen equipment that dices, slices, minces, and de-bones. This is a knife that will always go beyond its intended uses. Do you want to open that tin containing canned pineapples? Do you want a tool that will easily pop the cap off your beer? Well, a chef’s knife got you covered. After reading a whole lot of kitchen knife set reviews 2017, I did an in depth Chef Knife reviews, by testing 10 of the most popular models, and asking my fellow chefs for their recommendations. The following 2 knives passed all the tests I did including; peeling, chopping, cubing, slicing, and filleting;

The Korin Suisin High-Carbon Steel Gyutou

This Japanese high-carbon steel chef’s knife felt like an extension of my hand. Slicing through hard, half-frozen round steak with it was the easiest task. Its carbon steel blade makes cutting natural and enjoyable, and will always give a super-perfect outcome in every slice. I realized that this knife really help in sharpening ones skills, a few hours with it and you will develop a hero’s feeling.

 

This knife has one of the sharpest blades in the market, which will stay intact for a long time, hence you will not have to waste you precious cooking time sharpening it.

Despite the fact that this knife will always demand utmost care, it is one knife that will motivate you to chop even more.

The Wusthof Grand Prix II

For all the heavy-duty tasks in my kitchen, this typical German knife design was awesome thanks to its long blade tackles. Interestingly, this amazing piece comes with a life-time warranty, hence all maintenance-related costs will always be taken good care of. Its high-end stainless steel blades will give your kitchen an artistic look, and will make this knife highly durable. I found this knife’s plastic handle as one of the best as far as balance is concerned.

 

The tapered end of this knife is sharp, and actually left a number of paper-cut wounds on my fingertips. Despite this shortcoming, this is one giant of a knife I highly recommend.

Out of the 10 knives I tested, I strongly recommend these two to any kitchen fanatic like myself. If you believe a chef’s knife is the Goliath of your kitchen, investing your time and money in these knives is worthwhile.
