Heat

(b) such pans appear colourful.

(d) copper is easier to clean than the stainless steel. 

Answer:

The correct option is:

(c) copper is a better conductor of heat than the stainless steel.

Stainless steel pans are usually provided with copper bottoms because copper is a better conductor of heat than stainless steel. It helps in directing the heat evenly throughout the utensil and heats the steel pans faster. As a result of this, the cooking process will take less time with these copper-coated steel pans.
