The one main downside that many complain about stainless steel is that it is not a very good, or even, conductor of heat. Pots and pans made with 100% stainless steel take a long time to heat up, and they heat up unevenly, hence they are prone to having “hot spots” and you can easily burn some of the food before the rest is finished cooking.

Yet there are many upsides to stainless steel, and they remain the most prevalent kind of cookware in households today. But for the serious cook, those who want to use stainless steel but also wants more and better control over the cooking of food, it makes sense to go with a hybrid. Something that has the sleek looks, affordable price, and other great qualities of stainless steel, but also has a bottom that is an excellent conductor of heat.

Aluminum bottoms (and sandwiched bottom cores) are also used to solve the problem, and sometimes a combination of aluminum and copper will comprise the bottoms of quality sets.
