There are four main types of cookware. They are the stainless steel cookware, cast iron cookware, aluminum cookware and copper cookware. All these types of cookware have their respective pros and cons. Deciding on which is the best cookware will require some thorough comparison of their advantages and disadvantages.

The stainless steel cookware is the most common cookware types. Its advantages include durability and scratch resistant but it does not conduct heat well. Cast iron cookware is the more conventional type of cookware. It is extremely durable and inexpensive but it tends to react with food during cooking.

Aluminum cookware, on the other hand, has the best heat conduction among all the cookware types. However, it reacts with food during cooking and it gets dented and scratched easily.

Copper cookware has the best heat conduction but it is also not quite safe to use due to the fact that it does react with food. Plus, it requires regular polishing to maintain it.
