Alton Brown has written pretty extensively on this subject in his book "Gear for Your Kitchen." At $27.50 in hardback, it might be seen as a little pricey, but offers a wealth of information regarding just about anything you might want for your kitchen.
Yes, old AB is pretty opinionated about stuff, but he lays out the pros and cons about the various metals and coatings and the like in a pretty objective manner.
I for one found the entire book a fascinating read, and I frequently refer to it when I am looking for a new kitchen tool.
