Stainless steel does not fade or become discolored over time. It's also a rust-proof and stain-resistant material, so it will maintain its shine and preserve all of the aesthetic qualities of your appliances for several years to come.
Stainless steel is one of the most hygienic surfaces available, so any foods that come into contact with the surface or material do not attract dirt or germs.
The secret of true, old-fashioned non-stick cooking without using a Teflon type finish, is knowing how the cookware reacts to heat. In a nutshell; stainless steel cookware MUST be preheated before you add any food the pan.
That's the big "secret" that professional cooks know, and you can use this knowledge to brown,saute and cook foods in a stainless steel pressure cooker or regular cookware without food sticking or burning. Preheating your pans is further enhanced by the heavy 3-ply base that gets really hot, really fast, but also conducts and distributes heat evenly so there are no hotspots where food starts to scorch. That means clean up is easy, and unlike most non-stick pans, stainless steel can be washed in the dishwasher.
Our moms and grandmas understood the importance of investing in good quality stainless steel cookware. Long before non-stick finishes came on the market, we old timers were cooking successfully in plain stainless steel pans that didn't have today's heavy 3-ply base to distribute the heat... and you can do the same thing too.
