Devoid of any creative airs and graces, well-proportioned and of recogni-
sable quality. The basic material – cold forged aluminum with high material
thickness – is not only one of the best heat conductors, but also extremely
light and therefore easy to handle. With a constant thickness, the pots’
bases ensure even heat distribution and perfect thermal absorption. Rea-
ching cooking temperature the pan fully stabilizes and adjusts itself perfect-
ly to the stove. The resilient stainless-steel tube-shaped handles reduce
heat transmission. Low maintenance and ruggedness are increased by the
ceramic-enhanced non-stick coating of the internal surfaces. Still, we re-
commend considerate handling by using proper tools. Not suitable for in-
duction hobs. All lids are interchangeable in equivalent sizes.
