The founder of the Ital­ian brand, Alfre­do Mon­ti­ni, made a small rev­o­lu­tion when, in 1965, he decid­ed to replace mas­sive kitchen uten­sils with light­weight cast alu­minum coun­ter­parts. The heat inside them was dis­trib­uted even­ly due to the thick walls and bot­tom. This ensured the cor­rect pro­cess­ing of prod­ucts, and the dish­es acquired a rich aro­ma and taste. Over time, alu­minum cook­ware proved to be reli­able, as it was resis­tant to mechan­i­cal dam­age. Ease of oper­a­tion and main­te­nance has cap­ti­vat­ed users.

Today the com­pa­ny remains a fam­i­ly busi­ness with a strong rep­u­ta­tion, and the prod­ucts are still in high demand. All stages of man­u­fac­tur­ing are car­ried out exclu­sive­ly at Ital­ian fac­to­ries, raw mate­ri­als are mined in the same coun­try — high-qual­i­ty alu­minum is import­ed from fac­to­ries locat­ed in Lumez­zane. The brand is one of the largest in Europe and adheres to the con­cept adopt­ed sev­er­al decades ago, which is based on a com­bi­na­tion of func­tion­al­i­ty, qual­i­ty and unique design. All dish­es, includ­ing fry­ing pans, are made using high-pres­sure cast­ing, so they have a per­fect­ly smooth sur­face.

The Gran­i­to range of grill pans is espe­cial­ly pop­u­lar. Mod­els are made of cast alu­minum with a thick­ness of six mil­lime­ters and have a three-lay­er non-stick coat­ing with the addi­tion of micro-par­ti­cles of Hard Stone min­er­als, which guar­an­tees bet­ter oper­a­tion and max­i­mum pro­tec­tion against stick­ing. You can cook with­out oil. These pans are eas­i­er to clean. Suit­able not only for gas stoves, but also ovens, microwaves.

The Ger­man trade­mark is famil­iar to every­one. The brand’s dish­es belong to the mid­dle price cat­e­go­ry, are durable and easy to care for. The range is exten­sive and includes: pots, ladles, fry­ing pans, stew­pans, var­i­ous bak­ing uten­sils, lids, mechan­i­cal juicers, kitchen tool kits, cut­ting and chop­ping items, cook­ing uten­sils (colan­ders, sieves, push­ers, skim­mers, spat­u­las, brush­es, etc.). etc.), acces­sories, kitchen uten­sils (pothold­ers, tow­els, aprons, watch­es, scales), every­thing for serv­ing (cut­lery and bar uten­sils, items for serv­ing drinks and dish­es), stor­age con­tain­ers, con­tain­ers, ther­moses, flasks, ther­mo mugs, bread box­es .

The mod­el range of fry­ing pans offers a choice of prod­ucts made of alu­minum, stain­less steel, cast iron; there are spe­cial crepes, wok, grill pans and sets. Mate­ri­als for man­u­fac­tur­ing do not con­tain com­po­nents harm­ful to health and the envi­ron­ment. The pos­si­bil­i­ty of clean­ing in dish­wash­ers attracts buy­ers, how­ev­er, this is not per­mis­si­ble for all mod­els. The pans are suit­able for both gas and induc­tion cook­ers. Of par­tic­u­lar inter­est is the Select Orange and Dilet­to series — in them you can not only cook a dish with high qual­i­ty, but also serve it on the table.

One of the best is Gipfel Zen­it with thick walls of five mil­lime­ters, so that the sur­face heats up even­ly. Cook­ing is faster due to new tech­nolo­gies that have been applied in the pro­duc­tion process. Mar­ble coat­ing reduces the risk of food burn­ing. The mod­el is deep, resis­tant to mechan­i­cal dam­age. Equipped with a com­fort­able non-slip han­dle, but the pack­age does not include a lid. Cleans eas­i­ly and quick­ly with warm water and a soft sponge. The man­u­fac­tur­er indi­cates that met­al objects should not be used, so as not to dam­age the inner coat­ing.

The Bel­gian brand was found­ed in 1993 by Raf Van­thur. At that time, the assort­ment includ­ed only one kitchen set of uten­sils. Despite excus­es, the head took part in the Moscow exhi­bi­tion, where he signed the first con­tract. Thanks to hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the com­pa­ny, Raf took the com­pa­ny to the inter­na­tion­al mar­ket by offer­ing inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts. After a while, BergHOFF began to receive awards, for exam­ple, in 2006, at home, the first prize was won.

Many fry­ing pans do not have a non-stick coat­ing, but the food in them still does not burn, since the bot­tom of the prod­ucts is mul­ti-lay­ered. Due to this, heat is dis­trib­uted even­ly, and the food is tasty and aro­mat­ic. All mod­els are easy to clean with­out requir­ing much effort on the part of the user. The price seg­ment of goods is aver­age, goods cost in the region of 3–7 thou­sand rubles.

Take a look at the cast iron pan from the Ron col­lec­tion, suit­able for inten­sive fry­ing of foods. Ergonom­ic han­dle made of ash wood. In addi­tion to the ver­sa­til­i­ty, the mod­el is made in the same style, despite the com­bi­na­tion of con­trast­ing mate­ri­als and col­ors. Staff design­er Peter Rooks worked on the devel­op­ment. The line offers four dif­fer­ent styles to cre­ate a vari­ety of culi­nary delights.

The 2.3 liter Eclipse mod­el is val­ued for its prac­ti­cal­i­ty because it is suit­able for dai­ly use. Non-stick coat­ing allows you to fry with­out oil and fat, which makes food health­i­er. Ide­al for cook­ing meats, scram­bled eggs, omelettes and more. Does not con­tain cad­mi­um and lead. The han­dles do not get hot, which ensures safe­ty and com­fort.

The name of the French brand is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the devel­op­ment of the culi­nary tra­di­tions of Cen­tral Europe. The com­pa­ny was one of the first to declare that cook­ing should turn from hard work into an occu­pa­tion that brings plea­sure. The trade­mark appeared in the dis­tant 1925. Since then, the com­pa­ny’s dish­es have held a lead­ing posi­tion, win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion from younger brands. Con­nois­seurs of prod­ucts are not only culi­nary lovers, but also lead­ing chefs, who note the high lev­el of crafts­man­ship, com­pli­ance with qual­i­ty stan­dards and excel­lent design.

The range of prod­ucts made of cast iron and cast alu­minum has been updat­ed reg­u­lar­ly since 1990. The start was made when such nov­el­ties as Asian woks, Indi­an kahari, Span­ish pueblo were intro­duced. Com­pa­ny Pres­i­dent Paul van Zuid­man con­sid­ers this impor­tant for the devel­op­ment of the brand. Thanks to this approach, in 2014 the brand pre­sent­ed a unique line of ergonom­ic pots made of chromi­um-nick­el steel.

The brand’s pans are ver­sa­tile and can be used dai­ly. A large selec­tion of shapes and sizes allows you to choose the right mod­el. The series includes prod­ucts made of enam­eled cast iron, the same steel, three-lay­er stain­less steel, as well as with a heat-resis­tant non-stick coat­ing. Cast iron pans with enam­el coat­ing allow not only fry­ing, stew­ing, but also mar­i­nat­ing, stor­ing raw foods, since food acids will not pen­e­trate and will not react with the mate­r­i­al.

Since 2001, pre­mi­um Swiss table­ware has been deserved­ly one of the most pop­u­lar among chefs, real pro­fes­sion­als in restau­rant cui­sine. Safe­ty, con­ve­nience and com­fort — these are the three main advan­tages of prod­ucts that have allowed the com­pa­ny to attract the atten­tion of con­sumers for two decades. The com­pa­ny has more than ten patent­ed tech­nolo­gies. The assort­ment includes clas­sic and grill pans, pan­cakes, as well as stew­pans, pots, bak­ing sheets, bra­ziers, sets and acces­sories.

The basis of lead­er­ship is know-how. The brand pro­duces prod­ucts that are dis­tin­guished not only by their excel­lent design, wear resis­tance, but also by unique high-strength mate­ri­als. It is not for noth­ing that the dia­mond is the trade­mark logo, because it is the dia­mond coat­ing that is present on all prod­ucts. As a result, it takes less time to heat up. Prod­ucts are made from an envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly alloy of sil­i­con and alu­minum, which increas­es resis­tance to mechan­i­cal dam­age. The non-stick coat­ing with ultra-hard min­er­al par­ti­cles does not allow food to burn, ele­vat­ing the brand’s cook­ware to the rank of the best. In 2010, the com­pa­ny improved coat­ing strength by 30%.

The Ital­ian brand was born in 1889 when Pao­lo Bal­lar­i­ni found­ed the com­pa­ny. As the own­er of a small met­al work­shop, he was often asked to repair or make kitchen uten­sils. The expe­ri­ence gained allowed the com­pa­ny to become a leader in 1931. Even then, the brand offered more than two thou­sand items of goods. In the six­ties, the brand was one of the first to under­stand the need for a new tech­nol­o­gy in the form of non-stick coat­ings, which then were not as com­mon as they are now.

Con­stant improve­ment and use of inno­va­tions have made it pos­si­ble to pro­duce the high­est qual­i­ty non-stick cook­ware. Since the begin­ning of the nineties, new prod­uct lines have been reg­u­lar­ly intro­duced to the inter­na­tion­al mar­ket, for exam­ple, the Mas­terChef, Rial­to, Fenice, Titanio, Il Rame, Gli Spe­ciali col­lec­tions. Today, the com­pa­ny is run by the fifth gen­er­a­tion of the fam­i­ly. The own­ers, as before, sup­port the con­cept of using advanced tech­nolo­gies.

Fry­ing pans have a vari­ety of coat­ings from Teflon to ceram­ics and gran­ite chips, and the Titanio series, as the name implies, has a tita­ni­um coat­ing. All mate­ri­als used in the man­u­fac­ture are safe for both humans and the envi­ron­ment. Prod­ucts are reli­able and durable. The reviews note that over time, the coat­ing wears out, so the prod­uct has to be replaced.

The famous brand was found­ed in 1956 in France. Now it is an inter­na­tion­al con­cern for the pro­duc­tion of not only kitchen uten­sils, but also house­hold appli­ances. It was under this trade­mark that the first stew­pan with an anti-stick coat­ing was released. The com­pa­ny still adheres to the mot­to: “a fry­ing pan on which it does not burn.” It is believed that the com­pa­ny has some of the best pan­cake mak­ers. The dish­es became the win­ner of the “Test Pur­chase” many times. All prod­ucts are cer­ti­fied and the mate­ri­als used are safe.

The range includes a vari­ety of stain­less steel pans, cast alu­minum pans. In addi­tion to Teflon coat­ing, ceram­ic is also used. The pres­ence of a ther­mospot allows you to see when the sur­face has heat­ed up to the opti­mum tem­per­a­ture. Due to the large price range, the con­sumer has the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pur­chase a prod­uct on the pock­et, choos­ing from bud­get or pre­mi­um col­lec­tions.

It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to the Tita­ni­um-Pro mod­el, because this is the best option for home use. Tita­ni­um oxide non-stick coat­ing lasts longer than usu­al. In such dish­es, you can both fry and stew, but it is not suit­able for stor­ing food. It is ide­al not only for gas, but also for induc­tion cook­ers. The prod­uct can be eas­i­ly washed with a reg­u­lar clean­ing agent using a soft sponge.

The brand name is the stan­dard of reli­a­bil­i­ty. Since 1919, he became the first to pro­duce a mix­er for the home. Accord­ing to some, it was he who gave the name of the com­pa­ny, because at that time the mix­er made a splash, becom­ing the best kitchen assis­tant, and this is what the name of the com­pa­ny means in trans­la­tion. For more than a hun­dred years, the pro­duc­tion of house­hold appli­ances has been the hall­mark of the Amer­i­can brand. The prod­ucts have a rec­og­niz­able clas­sic design that is rem­i­nis­cent of the fifties.

The com­pa­ny also pro­duces dish­es, the qual­i­ty of which is high­ly appre­ci­at­ed by pro­fes­sion­al chefs and bar­tenders. It is ver­sa­tile, cap­ti­vates with its time­less design, lay­ered con­struc­tions and excel­lent ther­mal dis­tri­b­u­tion prop­er­ties. Suit­able for gas and induc­tion cook­ers. Fry­ing pans are easy to care for and do not require much effort. Many mod­els are dish­wash­er safe. The han­dles of the prod­ucts are made of stain­less steel, which allows you to cook in the oven at tem­per­a­tures up to 260 degrees, while tra­di­tion­al bake­lite ones can only with­stand 170 degrees.

Con­sumers fell in love with the KC2T12NKST mod­el with a diam­e­ter of thir­ty cen­time­ters. Made of steel with mul­ti-lay­er pro­cess­ing. Equipped with a non-stick Teflon coat­ing. Suit­able for cook­ing in the oven. It does not have a han­dle, so fry­ing on the stove is not very con­ve­nient, unless you buy a remov­able one.

Euro­pean buy­ers, unlike Russ­ian ones, are already well acquaint­ed with the brand’s Ger­man alu­minum cook­ware. Ini­tial­ly, the com­pa­ny pro­duced prod­ucts exclu­sive­ly for large whole­sale cus­tomers, and entered the retail mar­ket not so long ago. The rich assort­ment is equal­ly suit­able for both pro­fes­sion­al and home use.

The brand­ed line of fry­ing pans is dis­tin­guished by a thick bot­tom of 8–10 mil­lime­ters, which ensures high ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty and uni­form tem­per­a­ture dis­tri­b­u­tion. The design, thought out to the small­est detail, not only pleas­es the eye, but also has prac­ti­cal, func­tion­al ben­e­fits, allow­ing you to cook faster and bet­ter. The brand offers prod­ucts made by dif­fer­ent cast­ing meth­ods: using sand or core molds, with or with­out pres­sure, by grav­i­ty. It is impor­tant to note that all prod­ucts are made by hand.

Fry­ing pans, depend­ing on the mod­el, can have one of two patent­ed non-stick coat­ings: stan­dard Plat­inum is char­ac­ter­ized by increased strength, long ser­vice life and is absolute­ly safe for health and the envi­ron­ment; ultra-resis­tant Plas­ma is not afraid of mechan­i­cal and chem­i­cal attack and is more often used in prod­ucts intend­ed for pro­fes­sion­al use.

Con­sumers espe­cial­ly like the AMT526FIX pan made of cast alu­minum with a tita­ni­um coat­ing and a fixed han­dle. The sur­face of the bot­tom, which is ten mil­lime­ters thick, is care­ful­ly pol­ished and does not require spe­cial care. After cook­ing, it will be enough to remove food residues with a dry cloth and wash with warm water with a sponge and liq­uid deter­gent. The han­dle is ergonom­i­cal­ly designed with fin­ger holes. It does not heat up, so there is no risk of get­ting burned.

The brand was found­ed in 1988 in Ger­many. Ini­tial­ly, the com­pa­ny was engaged in the pro­duc­tion of dish­es and acces­sories made of steel, but in the process of improve­ment, it was decid­ed to expand the range by includ­ing uten­sils made of cast iron and alu­minum. Despite the fact that the fac­to­ries were moved to Chi­na, the qual­i­ty of goods remained at the same height. The prod­ucts are appre­ci­at­ed by the chefs of the world’s lead­ing restau­rants and are wide­ly used there for cook­ing.

The lat­est devel­op­ments of the com­pa­ny com­bine func­tion­al­i­ty, prac­ti­cal­i­ty and mod­ern style. Fry­ing pans are made from high-tech mate­ri­als that pro­vide resis­tance to mechan­i­cal dam­age dur­ing use, and also do not pose a health haz­ard. The brand’s prod­ucts have all the nec­es­sary cer­tifi­cates of con­for­mi­ty.

The mod­el made of stain­less steel Stern RDS-092 with a non-stick coat­ing on a steel base is very pop­u­lar among con­sumers. Of the fea­tures, it is worth high­light­ing the triple fused bot­tom, which increas­es ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty and allows you to even­ly heat the sur­face in the short­est pos­si­ble time, so that the prod­ucts remain juicy.

The fac­to­ry began work in the fifti­eth year. Today, the plant pro­duces cast alu­minum cook­ware, bread molds, non-stick fry­ing pans and much more. Prod­ucts are pop­u­lar with buy­ers from Rus­sia and the CIS coun­tries. Goods are pro­duced accord­ing to the require­ments of GOST.

Among the advan­tages of fry­ing pans, it is worth high­light­ing mate­ri­als that are safe for health, thick­ened walls and bot­tom, high-qual­i­ty coat­ings, a vari­ety of shapes and sizes. The Tra­di­tion mod­el with a diam­e­ter of twen­ty-four cen­time­ters with ceram­ic coat­ing is espe­cial­ly pop­u­lar with buy­ers. In the reviews they write that in the process of cook­ing the food does not stick to the sur­face and does not burn. Users also note that the glazed ceram­ic coat­ing is devoid of pores and does not accu­mu­late odors, and thanks to the embossed bot­tom with grooves, the prod­uct heats up quick­ly and retains tem­per­a­ture for a long time. True, there are com­plaints about restric­tions, for exam­ple, the pan can­not be cleaned in the dish­wash­er, sub­ject­ed to sud­den tem­per­a­ture changes and met­al appli­ances can­not be used.

The com­pa­ny is a divi­sion of a diver­si­fied Ger­man con­cern that devel­ops and sells san­i­tary ware and bath­room acces­sories. Hav­ing decid­ed to expand pro­duc­tion, in 2010 the com­pa­ny opened a new divi­sion in East­ern Europe and began to devel­op a new mar­ket for pro­fes­sion­al kitchen equip­ment. The brand is unique in that it com­bines high qual­i­ty and rea­son­able prices.

Goods are pro­duced in fac­to­ries equipped with mod­ern tech­nol­o­gy. Con­tin­u­ous strict qual­i­ty con­trol is car­ried out. Inno­v­a­tive tech­nolo­gies and safe mate­ri­als are used, which, when in con­tact with food, do not emit harm­ful sub­stances. Pro­fes­sion­als and chefs have already fall­en in love with the brand’s cook­ware.

Ordi­nary con­sumers, espe­cial­ly in Rus­sia, are not yet famil­iar with the brand’s prod­ucts, but they have an idea about it and even high­light some pans. For exam­ple, the SILVA mod­el with a non-stick coat­ing and a diam­e­ter of twen­ty-eight cen­time­ters. It is made of forged alu­minum with a durable five-lay­er Ele­gant fin­ish. Equipped with a one-piece stain­less steel han­dle, which allows you to put the pan in the oven. Suit­able for all types of plates. The use of non-sharp met­al uten­sils is allowed.
