Cookware is used to prepare and serve a variety of food items and is available in numerous materials and sizes.


Cookware Specifying Considerations

When selecting pots and pans, the material must be strong to withstand the rigors of constant heavy-duty use.

  • The cookware should resist denting and staining, yet the materials need to be light enough to be able to move around in a kitchen.
  • The metal must also conduct heat rapidly and evenly.
  • Besides being durable and light, the cookware should be easy to clean.
  • Operators need to determine how the cookware will be used prior to choosing the size and types.
  • Another consideration is the maximum temperature the cookware can handle for various production needs.
  • Before choosing a cookware material, the types of product being prepared need to be evaluated.
  • Operators need to consider whether the cookware will go from oven to table or just be used in the back of house.
  • Not properly anticipating how the cookware will be used can be a costly error that can impact speed of service and efficiency.
  • Not understanding how to care for the cookware can shorten its service life.
  • Not all cookware is suitable for oven to table use.
