These cooking pans are coated with graphene, an innovative material that conducts high-heat efficiently. Cool fact: This high-tech material is 200 times stronger than steel, harder than diamonds and thinner than paper. Graphene’s resistivity also means that their scratch-resistant coatings can withstand the test of time, and will not corrode easily. On top of that, this cookware range is made without PFOA, heavy metals or any materials harmful to the environment.
These premium cooking pans have excellent non-stick properties, so you never have to scrape burnt bits off. They also come with an induction base, so no matter which type of stove you have, you can easily whip up feasts for the family.
