comment How does a splash of vinegar help when poaching eggs?
@Marcin: I've never had poached eggs smell vinegary using the relatively small amount of vinegar. But if you're worried, try one of the other acids, like lemon juice.

comment Is copper cookware really better than stainless steel?
That makes sense. The pan that warped was a copper bottom, and it was highly tarnished. But I never felt compelled to polish it because it was a cheapo pan.

comment Is copper cookware really better than stainless steel?
@papin: I don't think I've ever seen a product with copper, aluminum, and stainless steel... it's usually just stainless steel with a core of either copper or aluminum, and sometimes a copper bottom. Any chance you could give me an example of one of these?

comment Is copper cookware really better than stainless steel?
Also, I'd always heard that copper is easier to maintain, particularly if it's lined with stainless steel so that it doesn't react with the food. Is that just another myth? Can you tell me why it's harder?

comment Is copper cookware really better than stainless steel?
Interestingly, that first article describes the copper and aluminum as "even" and the stainless steel as "pretty well", without getting any more specific than that. I'm left wondering if the difference is significant enough to justify copper.

@papin: By "clad" do you mean the core? It's an aluminum core.

comment Is copper cookware really better than stainless steel?
I do understand the theoretical science behind it - what I'm really trying to say is, is there any evidence that any of these properties are significant enough to matter in a kitchen context, i.e. has somebody actually tested copper vs. stainless steel in any fashion.
