If you enjoy cooking for your family, or you’d like to start enjoying it, the main essential ingredient is good quality cookware. You need pots and pans that not only cook well, but are easy to clean too.
One thing about me, if the cleanup process becomes a hassle when making XYZ, then I am not likely to make XYZ very often, or ever again. For this reason, I have tried to stick with cookware that doesn’t stick. I had thought this meant that I needed to buy supplies with that black non-stick coating and I avoided stainless steel.
Because in my experience, stainless steel cookware was always so hard to clean. Then the other day I made Grandma’s sauce using the T-Fal 12 Quart Stainless Steel Stock Pot. If you’ve ever cooked sauce for hours, you know that it splatters no matter how low you have the heat on for.
Our sauce is cooked without the cover, and I loved using this stock pot because it is so nice and tall – the splatters didn’t escape and end up on my counters, the walls, or on me. It splashed instead on the walls of the pot, and when it came time to clean, those dried-on splatters came of easily. I love that it’s both non-stick and stainless and not either-or.
The other features that make my life easier include the fact that this stock pot is both dishwasher and oven safe (up to 350 degrees), it has soft grip handles and a vented glass lid for when you need to cover the pot, but want to let some steam escape.
