When we search for cookware we expect it to be a good quality, last long, do the job, clean easy, and be inexpensive. Companies use various materials to manufacture cookware, but the Aluminum is one of the most popular materials used for production of all types of pots and pans.
Aluminum is lightweight, corrosion resistant metal and a good conductor of heat, therefore water and other ingredients in aluminum pots heat faster, so food prepares sooner.
Aluminum is a soft metal and can scratch easily. It’s also reactive to alkaline or acidic foods. Most of aluminum cookware including steamer pots are coated with non stick finish to prevent sticking and burns.
Aluminum steamers are light weight and easy to handle. Aluminum is often used with stainless steel to provide even heat distribution. Although stainless steel is not the best conductor of heat, many manufacturers sandwich a layer of aluminum between stainless steel layers to improve heat conductivity and make the base thicker. Steamers with aluminum cores in their bases are usually expensive. Below is the list of the best aluminum food steamers.
