I am looking for a new set of cookware.
Being a graduate student, I don't earn much money, so I'd like to know if there are some suggestions about what are available on the market with reasonable quality and price, according to your experience. Mine current set is Cullineary Edge 7PC s/s Cookware Set - Bakelite Handle
It cost me around $20~30. However after three and four years, the bakelite knobs and handles started to become shaky, more or less, and I have to tighten their screws every now and then, until it became impossible recently. But still I can bear its quality, with its relatively low price. I found some on the internet, such as
- Cook N Home 7 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set,
- Fntinc 02207 7Pc Cookware Set - Bakelite Handle,
- Mainstays 7-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
- Cuisine Select Alverton 7 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set.
It kind of confuses me, because they all look similar to my current set but with different levels of customer reviews
As I searched on the internet, I prefer those health-friendly, and the only thing I know is to choose stainless steel without non-stick Teflon and aluminium. For example, Cook N Home 7 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
Its features are:
- Mirror polished stainless steel body
- Aluminium capsuled bottom
- Stay cool bakelite handle and knobs
- Tempered glass lid
- Dishwasher safe
I am concerned about the usage of aluminium. According to what it says, is aluminium just used on the outside of the cookwares and in no contact with food inside? What is the purpose of "Aluminium capsuled bottom"?
Thanks and regards!
