Stainless Steel cookware.... who here uses that?

I just bought my first set of real good stainless steel cookware. I shopped at Kohl's for the first time ever and bought a 10 piece Calphlon cookware in the stainless steel finish.

I have always had Revere pots and pans and T-Fal skillets. Have decided at my age and point in life, I need to 'upgrade' my kitchen stuff. AND I already have Salvation Army coming next Friday for a pickup and can now add my older pots and pans to their pickup :-)

Anyways... the reason for my post since S.S. is brand new for me to cook with, can you give me any hints, tips, suggestions etc???

I appreciate it as always :-)

I am in UK. I have a stainless steel cooker, and set of pans. I find that the sides inside burn sometimes when cooking, and have to give a good scrub around sides when cleaning. Other than that, there are good stainless steel cleaning products available, I use one called 'rescue' it is made in UK. I will send you website address through PM site.

I have Stainless and cast iron. If you pre-heat the stainless before you add oil, butter or food you will have less sticking. It's justs takes practice but once you have it down it will be your fav. One point, keep a non-stick small pan for eggs. I can't stand for eggs to stick or break.

Stainless Steel cookware.... who here uses that?

to quote a famous TV chef "hot pan, cold oil ... foods won't stick"

I find this to be very true with my stainless set. I absolutely love it, especially for anything that I know I'll be making a pan sauce or for soups. Deglazing has never been more fun. I've not had problems with sticking or burning, and clean up is a breeze. If a pan ever looks like it scortched or food stuck as soon as I am done cooking I put warm water in it to losen it up (ginda like deglazing)

Keep a good non stick pan around though, it's a definite must have. Not everything is stainless friendly ... like eggs.

Happy Cooking!

Stainless Steel cookware.... who here uses that?

While my pans aren't stainless steel, I do have a set of Caphalon. Dh bought the set for me one year for xmas. I really love them! I would've never spent that kind of money on cookware, but ya' know, you do get what you pay for.

It's a shame that I burnt up one of the pans a month ago! Never put a ham steak with honey and brown sugar on the stove and fall asleep. Needless to say dh didn't have ham for dinner that evening.

I use the local equivalent of Faberware.

Love them, except for pasta -- got a thin bottomed pot for that (so the water can come to a boil fast).
