It is no exaggeration that this saucepan is a real diamond for your kitchen. With three times the hardness of stainless steel and five times the conductivity of copper, diamonds make the perfect cooking surface. The Swiss Diamond cookware incorporates diamond crystals to form a virtually indestructible revolutionary non-stick cooking surface that will not crack, blister or peel. The pans are made from thick pressure cast aluminum which provides perfectly uniform heat distribution with no hot spots. Another great feature of cast aluminium is that it will not warp even under extreme heat. The Swiss Diamond cookware has a perfectly flat base for use on all ceramic, gas and electric cook tops (not induction compatible though).
