These cooking utensils are made of aluminum.


Hi,

Is it all right to replace "utensils" in the above with "implements/containers" without making a change in meaning? Thanks.

IMHO utensil is a strong synonym for a cooking implement but not for a container.

I would not replace "cooking utensils" with "cooking implements". The former is the commonly accepted term.

It would be a help to know what you have in mind as "cooking utensils".

Hi angliholic,

Among professional cooks, cooking implements in the kitchen are referred to collectively by the French term batterie de cousine. This includes all utensils included in the preparation of food regardless of specific function or type of material (ceramic, metal, glass, wood). The range of utensils in any given kitchen speaks volumes about the elaboraten of the cooking and takes place there as well as the type of food prepared.

Cooking utensils can be organized into several categories depending on their function and the kind of cooking that is done. The categories include preparation equipment; pots, pans, frying pans, and cauldrons; griddles and equipment for roasting and baking,; utensils for table top cooking; and utensils used for charcuterie.

Cookware and bakeware are types of food preparation containers commonly found in the kitchen. Cookware comprises cooking vessels, such as saucepans and frying pans, intended for use on a stove or range cooktop. Bakeware comprises cooking vessels intended for use inside an oven.

There are also microwave safe containers, thermo-safe induction drum heater, fresh-life airtight food containers, as well as different food storage containers.

Regards.

V.
