Scanpan is the first producer of nonstick cookware certified to be PFOA free, so it's safe for your family and the environment. Scanpan's innovative IQ line is suitable for all cooking surfaces, including induction. The patented ceramic titanium surface is safe for use with metal utensils and allows for browning, braising, searing and deglazing-things you can't do with traditional nonstick. It also requires little to no fat for cooking. Unlike most nonstick cookware, which relies on a coating, Green TekTM nonstick cooking surface is created by firing a ceramic-titanium compound into the pan at 36,000°F and twice the speed of sound. The ceramic-titanium particles briefly liquefy and permanently anchor themselves to the pan. A specially formulated nonstick compound is then embedded in the surface, ensuring a lifetime of use without peeling or interacting with food. The industry-leading, squeeze-cast cookware features a 100% recycled aluminum body and a thick base that guarantees quick and even heat distribution and no hot spots. Pan is guaranteed not to blister or peel. The stainless-rimmed, tempered-glass lid with steam vents makes it easy to view food while it cooks. The lid is tight fitting, so it retains moisture while you cook and keeps food hot until you're ready to serve. Elegant and ergonomic polished handles are riveted to the pan, so they won't come loose. Pan and lid are both oven safe to 500°F. Lifetime warranty. Dishwasher safe. Made in Denmark.
