The Art of Aluminum Cookware

Aluminum is one of the most popular of materials used in the manufacture of cookware. Why is it so popular? Because of its ability to conduct heat so well. What this means to you is that foods are cooked evenly and hot spots on your cookware are reduced.

For this reason, most aluminum cookware today goes through a process of anodization which provides a strong durable product.
