Let the Pot-thing Begin!

Pots: The Witness of our History

Pots are containers that are typically cylindrical made of ceramic or metal. It is typically used for storage or cooking. The discovery and invention of pots were so brilliant that it introduced us from the boiling of water to the different methods of cooking. Pots have a rich history for it is the oldest humankind's handicrafts. During ancient times, the first-ever process of making pots was made by shaping the clay, decorating it with the necessary tools, and baking it under the sun or hot ashes. It was usually used for cooking and it also served as water containers; people would use pots to get water from rivers. Sooner, people were able to develop the process of making pots by mixing the clay with sand to make stronger cooking pots when placed over fires. Stoneware pots were not introduced until the middle of the 13th century by the German potters. The German potters made stoneware pots by forming finer clays and baking them at a higher temperature. This innovation made by the Germans is also being used as home decorations. One of the greatest evolution of pots was the introduction of porcelain pots by China. The Chinese potters introduced porcelain pots by using plastic, and pure clay that they called kaolin; which was mixed with felspar. Porcelain pots even have its colorful decoration which was done by baking each color individually in the fire after it was applied. Because of this amazing discovery of porcelain pots by the Chinese, people were so fond of it that even the European and other Asian potters tried to develop their techniques in the replication of the Chinese porcelain pots.

Some methods used in making pots before are still being used today. Potters still use the process of mixing sand with the clay in creating casserole dishes for baking for this concept of making pots prevents the cracking, warping, or exploding the inside of the kiln. The development of cookware through the ages has been very innovative in that it now varies from metal, aluminum, copper, cast iron, stainless steel, and many more.


Speculating Pots

Purchasing pots are not as easy as you think as there are numerous brands and varieties already available in the market. Remember that not the most expensive ones are always the best. It has a lot of factors; your cooking skills, the complexity of what you are cooking on certain pots, the quality of the pots, and any other factors to consider. It is always essential for everyone to know what they want before buying; you need to know enough about the stuff you are about to buy before making an informed decision-- knowing the facts, options, pros, and cons. Here are the things you need to familiarize yourself with in buying pots:

1. Check Your Inventory
This is the first and foremost thing you need to consider when trying to purchase a pot. Do you really need to buy a new pot? Take an inventory check first; check your pots, determine which pots need replacement, figure out if you are still missing more pots-- are your pots enough? This will not only prevent you from making an unnecessary and miscalculated decision, but it will also save you a lot of money, time, and energy.

2. Value for Money
Is the pot worthy of its price? Do you need an expensive pot that will only be used for basic cooking? Does the price fit your budget? Again, not the most expensive ones are always the best. Having the most expensive pot does not guarantee 100% satisfaction. You have to maximize the money you will be investing in pots; make sure to get the most out of your money. It would be satisfying to purchase something at a reasonable price with remarkable quality.

3. Capacity
Do you need a large pot or a small pot? You have to be efficient in buying pots. It is not practical to buy anything without considering the capacity.

4. Durability
It is most evident that quality is always proportional to cost. However, it does not cost that much to get pots that will do the job perfectly. Some pots maintain their good looks and durability for a long time just like stainless steel pots.

5. Material
Deciding on the material of your pot depends on what you can cook in it.Try asking yourself what do you cook most? Some metals react to certain foods, some aluminum-made pots do not go well with other acidic ingredients or dishes. To sum it up, always ensure that you will consider the material of the pot when trying to purchase.

6. Heat Conductivity
Metals, copper, aluminum, and any other materials of pots are also important to consider. Copper is also good in heat conductivity compared to stainless steel. If your pots have a better heat conductivity, this means that it will help you cook your food evenly. Heat conductivity also affects the fact of how your pot will react in increasing or decreasing the heat when you are cooking.

7. Maintenance
Some pots are high maintenance to keep the good looking feature it has. Some are low maintenance and only need the necessary cleaning to maintain its durability.

FAQs

・ Should I buy a set of just one material or can I mix and match?

- It will always depend on what you usually cook or what you want to cook. But buying a set is the best way to get started because it will most likely save you money. On the other hand, mixing and matching different kinds of material for cookware lets you meet all your cooking needs. I mean, who wouldn't want a nonstick frying pan?

・ How do you season pots made of carbon steel?

- Heat it until very hot then add a little oil by rubbing a paper towel; you can use vegetable oil, canola oil, or flaxseed oil. Once it gets cool, repeat it 2-3 times. This process of seasoning helps to build a bond between the plastic-like layer of oil with the material of the pan.


Trivia

Never leave your empty pot on the gas stove in high heat for a couple of minutes; it can harm your pot.

Placing a wooden spoon or fork across the top of your pot while cooking pasta helps to prevent it from over-boiling.

Cool your pots first before washing. Sudden changes in the temperature of pots can result in warping.

To fix a stuck lid, set the pot over to moderate heat for a minute or two. The air inside will increase the pressure; enable the lid to raise slightly so heated air can escape.
