By doing so, you're ensuring that your stainless-steel cookwares have the best surface possibility for searing meat and ensures the temperature is even throughout the cooking process.
Prepare food with non-abrasive utensilsStainless steel cookwares are usually fine with metal spoons and whisks, but they may scratch the surface. Using heat-resistant silicone spatulas and other tools will prevent this. If any scratches do occur, a stainless-steel cleaner or a simple mixture of baking soda and water works well for restoring the luster.
For searing meat and creating delicious sauces, stainless steel pots are ideal. Make sure not to move the meat until the pan releases it; this will seal the juices in and create the browning necessary for proper sauces, and don't forget to add cold liquids to the hot roux for a smooth texture.
Acidic Food RulesStainless steel cookwares are fine for cooking tomatoes and citrus fruits, however do not store such items or salted meals because they may corrode the surface.
