Cookware and bakeware are types of food preparation containers commonly found in a kitchen. Cookware consists of cooking utensils such as saucepans and frying pans, which are intended for use on a stove or range cooktop. The top of the pot is called the lid. Both the cooking pot and the lid handles can be made of same material.
When picking up these parts, oven gloves or pot holders will be necessary so that you do not burn yourself. Handles can be made of non-heat conducting materials. A good cooking pot design has an “overcook edge,” which is what the lid lies on. The lid has an edge that prevents fluid from dripping off when holding the lid.
