      Types of Different Aluminum Cookware

      A comparison of types of aluminum as it pertains to cookware made by Ecolution

      Do you know what your cookware is made out of? One of the most popular materials used to make cookware is aluminum. Ecolution cookware offers different types of aluminum, and we’re here to break them down for you so you can better understand the manufacturing process and pros of each. 

      Overall, aluminum is strong, a great conductor of heat, reasonably priced and lightweight. Now, let’s break it down: 

      Cast Aluminum

      Cast aluminum can be found in our Ecolution Kitchen Extras Double Burner Reversible Griddle. When manufacturing products with cast aluminum, molten aluminum is poured into specially designed molds. Cast aluminum allows for strategic variances in thickness in certain areas to maximize cooking efficiency. The reason we use cast aluminum on our double griddle is because cast aluminum can easily go from stovetop to oven to table.

      Before you buy

      We suggest that you check out all of the Ecolution product lines before making your decision- as they all have different features that you may find more helpful than others. It’s also important to buy pots and pans that fit your stovetop burners. The right size pan helps with efficiency while cooking and prevents things like the handle from getting hot.
