Please compare stainless steel cookware with other types of cookware.

Iron, cast iron, and carbon steel cookware are slowly eliminated from the market, because iron rusts easily if not maintained properly, resulting in rusts unsafe for human consumption.  The cheaper, inferior products are brittle and crack easily, while the more expensive ones are heavy and cause damage to wrists.  Although retaining heat well, these materials rust easily, are aesthetically unpleasing when rusted, easily trap dirt and grease in their porous surface, conduct heat unevenly, and react with acidic food.

Aluminum cookware is more common in the market, due to its lighter weight, good heat conduction, and relatively inexpensive price tag.  The downside is aluminum oxidizes when heated releasing harmful chemicals. Aluminum deforms and cracks easily, traps dirt and grease in the porous surface, easily oxidizes, and produces oxidized aluminum and aluminum ash which are hard to clean. Medical studies have linked long-term use of aluminum cookware to Alzheimer's disease.

Non-stick cookware has a surface coated with Teflon, which is scratches easily resulting in extremely short lifespan of the cookware; furthermore, damaged Teflon emits harmful chemicals linked to cancer, organ damage and other health effects.  Non-stick cookware needs frequent replacement when the Teflon coating wears off, which is both inconvenient and costly.  In avoiding scratching the Teflon coating, wooden utensils instead of metal ones are often used, only to add to its list of downsides since wet wood is prone to bacterial molds, which are also harmful to health.   

Copper cookware: Copper is the best heat-conducting metal, but pure copper oxidizes easily, making maintenance difficult.

The normal single-layer, stainless steel cookware is very good for all-around general-purpose.  It is stylish, hygienic, holds its shape, affordable, oxidation-resistant, and durable; however, its disadvantages include food sticking to the surface, difficult to clean, and discolors easily and uneven heat distribution.
