    Both stainless steel and iron offer advantages and disadvantages.  Stainless steel is the most popular choice in most people’s kitchen as the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.  Stainless steel is relatively inexpensive, durable, scratch resistant, doesn’t react with food, and warp resistant.  The main disadvantage of stainless steel is not all are good conductors of heat.  Look for pans with several layers, most popular aluminum or copper.  People who use cast iron swear its the only pans to use.  Though there are more disadvantages than stainless steel.  Cast Iron is relatively inexpensive, extremely durable, and offers good heat retention.  But, it can react with food if not seasoned, is heavier than most other pans, and is high maintenance.  The main things to look for when considering a cooking set is heat conductivity, price, durability, reactivity, and maintenance.
