Steel frypans & woks


It will quickly reach high temperature, necessary to create the “Maillard reaction”, a cooking process from 140 to 165 °C  which will crust and sear perfectly meat, poultry and fish while keeping their tender texture and improving the flavor of meat juices. It’s ideal as well to brown vegetables and potatoes, grill, fry, or deep fry anything with greater result.

  • Healthy cooking material, iron pans have no coating but will nonetheless develop natural nonstick properties with time and a process called “seasoning”, which will protect them as well from rust.
  • Rust is a natural phenomenon for iron pans. It is not dangerous; it can be removed easily and is not a default of the iron pan. The seasoning process at home will protect it.
