Cooking on stainless steel has become more popular since the non-stick pans have been linked to cancer. Stainless steel does not alter the taste o your food like cast iron but it is difficult to clean, to help with this you should always spray the area of the pan you will use with cooking spray.

Stainless steel is wonderful for cooking! Food does stick to stainless steel, but all you have to do is fill the pot/pan about half way with water, add a few drops of dish soap and let it boil until the food loosens. Stainless is best washed by hand.
