Pampered Chef: Benefit of Professional Versus Executive

  1. What is the cooking difference between the titanium-reinforced alloy (executive) versus the hard-anodized aluminum ( professional)? I have the proffessional and it cooks very well but I am still trying to know the difference besides the oven safe. Is it easier to clean as the professional on the outside does stain? Does it cook Faster? I do not know how to sell it for the extra price. I may need to wait until I get it and try to compare it. Any Ideas? I do want to be educated!!! :confused:

    Benefits of the Executive Cookware:
    --the aluminum is reinforced with a titanium alloy, making it 30% stronger. These pans will never go out of round.
    --both the inside AND the outside of the pan are covered with DuPont Autograph 2 non-stick coating, making clean up fast and easy and no ugly grease marks on the outside.
    --the pan is thicker on the bottom and progressively thinner up the sides, allowing for better heat conduction and faster cooking
    --the bottoms are absolutely flat, making them safe on those smooth cooktops

    Those are just some things off the top of my head.

    Out of Round

    Out of Round would be better labeled "out of flat" - if you drop your saucepan hard on its side, it would flatten somewhat, make a shape of the capital letter D, and be out-of-round.

    From a cooking perspective, you want the base of your pan to be in contact with the heat as much as possible - not one side touching and the other side up a little. With the titanium reinforcement, it keeps it flat.

    Another benefit from titanium - because it is stronger and light, you can have the same approximate weight with a thicker gague of metal. This is GOOD because heavy / thick pans conduct heat better and holdup better (common sense)

    The thin walls of the pan are good, because they conduct heat better.

    Flared rims - 5 coatings on the Autograph finish: base coat, first coat, middle coat, second coat, and top coat. Grocery-store Teflon is just first coat and top coat; ultra cheapo is just 1 coat of teflon (have seen many of these at thrift stores)
