No cookware material ... not aluminum, not iron, not ceramic, and certainly not stainless steel... conducts heat like copper.
“Traditionally, of course, there is one ultimate kind of cookware, and it is made of copper which is becoming one of the rarer metals of the world. There is an enormous difference, however, in cooking pieces made of copper.
Pure tin, on the other hand, is as non-stick a cooking surface as can be found. Food lifts off pure tin much as it does from well-seasoned steel, but tin does not require seasoning - its crystaline structure is already very smooth (i.e., molecularly simple and well-ordered).
The first thing you'll notice when using tin-lined copper cookware is how fast it heats up - in fact, you'll probably start turning down your heat as a matter of course. You just don't need a high-output burner when you use copper. Whatever source of heat you use with copper cookware you can count on the energy going into the pot, rather than bouncing off the bottom and going up the outside while the metal figures out what to do with all those extra BTUs.
"Copper is king here: It has nearly twice the thermal conductivity of aluminum... is five times more conductive than cast iron and 25 times more than stainless steel. Serious cooks love copper for this quality.”
Stainless steel is a very hard metal, and that hardness resists taking on a fine edge. That same resistance accounts for why the wires in your walls are not stainless steel - as tough and resilient as it may be, stainless is worthless for conducting electricity - too inflexible and resistant. The wires in your walls are very likely made of copper, which conducts electricity with very little resistance. In fact, copper has the highest electrical potential of all the non-noble metals. We're talking about cookware, however, and in cookware conduction in the name of the game.
The first metal age was the Copper Age, and some of the first metal tools were for cooking. The first metal alloys were of copper and tin, leading to the Bronze Age. Copper and tin have literally accompanied mankind on our cultural path, harmonizing each step of the way with human needs and with the environment. This is no less true today than it was 7500 years ago.
