Today, we're talking about the most perfect cookware material on Earth: Stainless steel. Before you smash that comment button, I want to make it clear that I'm not disparaging cast iron. I would never do such a thing.

My 30cm cast iron skillet is my very large, heavy son and I love him dearly (he turned 8 in July, thank you for asking). Here's the truth, though: Stainless steel is the only truly all-purpose cookware material you can buy, which is why I recommend it above all others.
