ALUMINUM
- Excellent heat conductor, Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists
staining & pitting), If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic glass cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble
scratches, Remove these marks immediately,
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily, May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum above),
STAINLESS
STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results, Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining,
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain heat very well, Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached,
Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops,
PORCELAIN-ENAMEL
on METAL - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material, Porcelain-enamel
coating
must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops,
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.
Air Circulation
in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for properaircirculation
and be sure pans and cookware do not
touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity, The hot
air must circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat
to reach around the food,
