Stainless or Anondized Aluminum: Which is easier to care for?

dexters | Oct 14, 2009 12:59 PM

I'm deciding between the two sets at Costco.

One is the stainless set: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product....

and one is the Circulon Anondized Aluminum:

I'm fairly comfortable with the performance of both. What is boils down to, is ease of use and clean up.
I have a few All Clad stainless pans that are a PITA to clean. I'm guessing this is b/c I've not been using them correctly.
But, the truth of the matter is that I have 2 very young children, and I often get distracted by their various hi-jinks while I am cooking. So sometimes food is left of a bit longer than it should be, and it burns to the bottom of the stainless pans I have, resulting in some serious elbow grease. I'm wondering if the aluminum would be easier clean up? We typically do not put pots/pans in the dishwasher, so that is not a factor for me.

Any guidance is most appreciated.
