New Era Surgical Stainless Steel Cookware
Q: Has anyone used New Era surgical stainless steel cookware? If so, how do you like at? Is it easier to clean? Does it cook food faster? Does it distrubute the heat better? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
A: It looks like cookware made by P.B. Helms Co. in Dallas TX. This appears to be the company that makes a lot of generic cookware for other companies. I love their FAQ, which states: "If the stainless steel is called 'surgical stainless steel,' you can be certain that it is a good grade of stainless steel. The numbers you spoke of represent the grades of the steel. We're not familiar with all of the numbers, or all grades, but we do know that our Steam Control brand of waterless cookware is constructed of 304 Surgical Stainless Steel." LOL..... We're a manufacturer of stainless steel cookware, but we don't know "all the numbers, or all the grades of the steel..."! That's priceless. We don't know what the Hell were doing, but we make great cookware. LOL!! http://www.angelfire.com/az2/waterless/FAQ.html I wouldn't buy their stuff at gunpoint. I am not familiar with New Era cookware but, before you spend a bazillion dollars on MLM cookware, do a little research on "surgical" stainless steel. It would appear that cookware marketers have taken misrepresentation to a new (low) level. You'll find that almost all "surgical" stainless steel is non other than good old 304 stainless steel, the same stainless steel that comprises well over half of all stainless steel produced in the world today. It's used for everything from cutlery to beer kegs to pots and pans to nails. It doesn't clean easier or cook faster and, any cookware with aluminum sandwiched into or onto the bottom will distribute heat much better than straight stainless steel. As an afterthought, I did a quick Google search on New Era.

If the price mentioned in the above URL is right, I could buy all the quality stainless steel pots and pans I'd ever need and still have $1000.00 left to spend on food to cook in them. As they say in Latin, Caveat Emptor ("Let the buyer beware.")
