Christmas is a season when we tend to think a lot about food and many of us spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. This is also a time when we might want to make sure that we have all the right tools for the job in order to be able to enjoy the festive feasts that we want to cook up.

If you have decided that now is the time to replace some of your old cookware in order to get the best from your new pots and pans it is important to do plenty of research to get good quality pans that are well suited to you.

Something that many people think about first when looking for a new frying pan is ensuring that it is non-stick. Nowadays there are many treatments that can be applied to frying pans to prevent food from sticking like this electroless nickel coating so when you are choosing a pan make sure that you look out for this.

The material that the pan is made from is also very important. Frying pans come in a range of different materials and it is all down to personal choice. For example, one cook might tell you that they have a preference for a certain material, but you might find that you don’t get along with it at all. Popular frying pan materials include:

Cast iron-these are often known as skillets and being made from cast iron tend to be on the heavier side. If you cook meats, they are a good choice of pan however they tend to heat up slowly so be aware of this.

Copper-copper pans look attractive and are the greatest conductor of heat. They also distribute heat well however if you are looking for a more robust pan, copper might not be the one for you.

Aluminium- this is another metal that is good at conducting heat and it is also more resistant to rust and corrosion. If you want a pan that is easier to lift this is a good choice for you as aluminium is a lightweight metal.

Ceramic- these pans are usually made out of metal but have a ceramic coating across the surface of the frying pan. This means that they need less oil when you are cooking and the coating makes them more durable.
