Choosing the Best Kitchen Knives
Kitchen knives come in a wide range of quality. At the very low end you can find cheap kitchen knives bulk-made in factories, with plastic handles and low grade material. On the other hand there are carefully crafted beauties that gleam with premium material and workmanship such as these Japanese knives and German knives.
11. Spectrum Lime 5-Piece Pan Set: £3 Dunelm Mill
The quirky colour makes these purse-friendly pans aesthetically appealing (with other vibrant tones also available). Practically, they are on par with the Argos Home set, with all the same benefits (stay-cool handles and handy glass lids) – it’s just that you get two more for your extra tenner and they are also induction friendly. Also like the Argos ones, beware of occasional cold spots and wash up with care.
Most importantly, don’t put them anywhere near the dishwasher.
Looking after your pans
Look after your pans and they will provide you with years of service. They don’t need much maintenance, but to ensure your pans stand up to all your cooking can throw at them giving them a little TLC will ensure your investment lasts.
Types of cookware and bakeware
The size and shape of a cooking vessel is typically determined by how it will be used. Cooking vessels are typically referred to as pots and pans, but there is great variation in their actual shapes. Most cooking vessels are roughly cylindrical.
Why is some cookware dangerous?
The best cookware set is the one that’s safe, right? But some contain chemicals or elemental metals that can contaminate food and cause health problems. Choosing non-toxic cookware can reduce or eliminate these health concerns, so it’s worth the time (and money) to choose the right ones.
