As summer settles in around us, more and more people are taking to grilling their food outdoors, creating sizzling, mouth-watering meals that are low in fat and calories and high in taste. But what about the cookware you use on your grill? Is it safe or is potentially doing you and your family harm?

Only Cookware representative, Wanda Sowden says, "Experts agree that one of the safest types of cookware you can use on your outdoor grill is cast iron cookware, especially those coated in nickel, simply because raw cast iron can deteriorate, finally flaking and rusting, which can lead to deterioration of your food and cause you and your family harm."

Nickel-plated cast iron cookware has a core of cast iron, and then the pan is plated with a nickel compound. This permanent nickel surface is 3 times harder than stainless steel and will not melt, burn, or chip off. Much like stainless steel cookware and cast iron cookware, it can stand the highest of heat and is safe for all indoor oven temperatures, and will not impart any flavors to food.

Additionally, durable Dutch Ovens make for great grill ware, transitioning easily and safely from the kitchen to the backyard. Perhaps best known for providing succulent slow-cooked meals, they are also top producers over campfires and grills, equipped with a tight fitting lid that produces tender meats, stews, casseroles and side dishes like tasty barbecue beans and corn that is falling off the cob. And, because the Dutch oven lid can be inverted and used as a pan, you can enjoy grilling and frying all at once, and over the very same flame.

If you are looking for a Dutch oven that will work over a campfire, make sure you find one that also has small, short tripod legs on the bottom. These legs are not necessary for grill use, but instead are a personal preference your favorite outdoor chef may want to explore.

Another grilling cookware option is a cast iron or stainless steel wok. Used in China for hundreds of years, woks were originally designed for use over open flame, making them a perfect choice for outdoor cooking. The wok's rounded bottom is perfect for searing and its cooler curved sides allow you to throw in foods with different cook times all at once, as they are heated to perfection simultaneously.
