Bronze cookware is used in many restaurants and professional cooking organizations but can also be enjoyed on the personal level at home. The main benefit of using copper cookware is its heat conductivity--the bronze outside and stainless steel cooking area ensures food is completely and equally heated. Its gleaming looks are also attractive when hung in the kitchen or stacked on the shelf. Many famous names in cookware manufacturing provide bronze lines and large sets of pieces may be found in stores, saving money.
Anolon Advanced Bronze
Anolon's bronze collection includes a 10-piece set or piece-by-piece pricing. The Advanced Bronze 10-piece set includes many items used daily in the kitchen and is a way to purchase, at a savings, saucepans, a stockpot, skillets, and lids. The collection is non-stick, hard-anodized and has color coordinating handles. Anolon was created in 1987 when company founders discovered the benefit of combining tough non-stick coating and hard-anodized surfaces. Their SureGrip handle (on every item produced) is made of silicone and stainless steel, which ensures long-lasting comfort.
