A Guide to Kitchen Utensils

ENAMELWARE

Properties: A poor heat conductor, but it heats up rapidly. The utensil should be labeled as to whether it is single-coated or multi-coated with enamel, a glasslike substance fused onto steel, iron or aluminum. The heavier gauges, though expensive, heat up slower but more evenly, and are more resistant to surface damage (chipping).

Cost: Cheap to expensive.

Use: Made into coffeepots, frying pans, saucepans, and saucepots. Excellent for preparing white sauces and cooking acidic foods.

Care: Scrub with a plastic scouring pad and warm soapy water to remove burned or stuck-on food. Use only wooden implements for stirring.
