Pot - its functions and applications
Pots are unique tools in the kitchen, which allow you to prepare exceptional, delicious dishes. They are with us every day and accompany us both in the preparation of modest meals and large ceremonial lunches or dinners.
We will use the pot for stewing, cooking as well as for frying or jamming. Bearing in mind that nowadays pots and pans are no longer looked at solely in terms of utility, but are also treated as an element building the visual character of the room, which is the kitchen (but also the interior of the restaurant), pot sets with a sophisticated design are becoming very popular.
Pot sets from brands such as Alessi, Fissler, Scanpan, Silit and WMF have been setting a new trend for years in viewing these practical kitchen utensils as part of interior design. This is due to the commitment of these brands to unique design, the use of the finest materials and attention to detail.
What should a good pot be?
Good pots are an investment in culinary journeys, special moments spent with family or friends while preparing common meals, as well as solid and reliable cooking tools that will serve for many years.
The first criterion we pay special attention to is of course the material and quality. A pot that has thick walls will heat up a bit longer, but the heat distribution will then be more even and the heat will last longer. The right material for handles and handles prevents unpleasant burns when handling or mixing food.
It is also important that the food prepared in the pot has its natural taste and aroma - in good pots and pans you won't find any metal or substance that might penetrate the food.
Composition of sets
Pot sets usually include at least one large pot, a smaller one for preparing less food, a classic saucepan - essential for heating milk, as well as accessories such as a colander - useful in the kitchen of any lover of paste and pasta, or woks, asparagus, steaming or special lids (e.g. with a straining function). Depending on your needs, there is a possibility to buy individual models of pots and pans - this will allow you to complete your collection or replace an old, worn-out one.
The pots can be made of different types of materials - you will find both traditional ceramic and enameled pots, as well as those made of aluminium and stainless steel. Due to their temperature maintenance properties, cast iron pots are also highly valued - dishes prepared in this pot taste special!
