How many pots should be in the kitchen is not an easy question. It depends on the size of the family and the scope of its culinary feats. All housewives cook in different ways. However, if you have a family, and at least on the whole family has meals at home, two pots will not be enough.
There is no need to go out and buy whole sets. Instead, you should select the individual pots and pans that work best with what and how you cook good-quality pots and pans made of the right materials really can improve your cooking.Whatever type of pan you choose, first of all it should be of high quality, with thick walls and bottom. Thickness means that a pan will not dent, warp or have hot spots which cause food in one area of the pan to cook faster or burn before everything else is done. Thinner materials won’t hold heat evenly. A deeper pot should hold heat all the way up its sides.
A well-equipped kitchen should have five items with lids in different sizes: a large pot is suitable for boiling or steaming vegetables, making sauces, or cooking grains and pasta, for broth and soup, a medium saucepan holds about 4 to 6 quarts of liquid, it is perfect for main courses and side dishes, I like this saucepan because it is not too big and not too small.
Two small pots for cereals and dairy dishes, a small ladle for making sauces or warming milk. In a small dish it is also convenient to warm up 1-2 portions of ready-made food, or to prepare separate food for the baby, cook side dishes, vegetables for salads or dumplings. All these pots are very functional. Depending on what you cook, these five pots are all you really need to survive in the kitchen, they can help you free up some much-needed space.
They should be available in every kitchen where cooking meals is a frequent occurrence. Stock your kitchen with these saucepans, plus a couple more pieces, and you can cook nearly anything. There are many types of cookware that will make your cooking experience more pleasant.
I cook a lot and I cook a wide variety of things. Having these pots at my disposal, I am never at a loss. It is very important which materials saucepans are made from, because the foods may absorb materials from the pots and pans in which they are cooked. Each material is good in its own way, it all depends on your personal preference and the type of the cooker.
For example, for induction cookers cookware made of cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic enameled layer is suitable. For glass-ceramic panels stainless steel and glass pots are good and Teflon coated pots are ideal for gas stoves. The most popular types of material are stainless steel, cast iron and copper. Pots and pans made out of stainless steel, cast iron or copper stainless steel are safe, durable and versatile.
