Gas burners offer a variety of flame ring temperature settings supplied by the burner. Although most types of cookware can be used in gas stoves, some types work better than others. Cookers that distribute heat evenly are best as they spread the heat of the fire to avoid uneven basin temperatures.

Copper is a soft but durable metal that is an excellent heat conductor and works well on gas trains. Although copper cartridges are among the most expensive you can buy, they distribute heat evenly and respond to temperature changes. Look for pans with a copper core and a tin, stainless steel or nickel coating Copper core cookware offers the same advantages as simple copper cookware, but does not require as much cleaning or care. Regardless of whether the pot is made of copper or copper, it will probably be heavier than any other kitchenware.

Cast iron cookware is a cost-effective option that provides slow, warm heating. It works best when heated to gas areas above low flame, and is very durable. Cast iron is usually "seasoned" before cooking, which is done by burning a layer of oil on the iron. This creates a natural non-adhesive coating. Alternatively, you can use enamel cast iron that is coated with an enamel layer instead of spices to prevent it from sticking.

Anodized aluminum cookware is processed to create a tough, non-reactive coating that is ideal for cooking most foods. Aluminum provides a uniform heat distribution and is therefore a good choice for cooking in gas areas. It is usually cheap and lighter than cast iron or copper. Some aluminum kitchenware is lined with stainless steel to form a non-reactive surface without anodizing. However, avoid unprocessed, non-anodized aluminum that can react with acidic foods such as tomatoes and give your food a metallic taste.

Non-stick cookware can be used safely in gas cookers, provided you do not cook at high temperatures. When cooking in a non-stick pan, keep the burner at medium or lower level. Inappropriate cast iron, aluminum and copper core cookware ensure uniform heating and allow less oil to be used. Non-stick cookware also reduces the time needed for cleaning and can be easier to handle . When working with non-stick utensils, use wooden or plastic utensils to avoid scratching the non-stick coating. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for washing non-bandwidth cookware after use.
