The invention of the pan dates back to the 16th century, since it has never left our kitchen. This essential everyday tool has constantly evolved over technical progress to offer us an ever more efficient tool. A quick overview of the latest stove innovations:

Ecological innovation



Ecology invites itself into our kitchens: GreenPan is a pan that tries to make a difference in terms of carbon footprint. The pan does not release any toxic fumes even in the event of overheating thanks to a non-stick coating in natural Thermolon ceramic without PFOA (perfluoro-octanoic acid), a chemical usually used for the production of non-stick coatings. This coating application process requires considerably less energy and makes it possible to reduce CO2 emissions by 60%. Finally the pan of course uses packaging made from recycled paper. (Price: 70 euros for a 28 cm pan)

Homogeneous cooking



Difficult to cook your food well because there are often large differences in temperature within the pan. Demeyere proposes to remedy the problem with a coating that will distribute the heat evenly. Stainless steel offers good resistance to deformation and poses no health risk. However, it remains a poor thermal conductor, which is why Demeyere applies a conductive layer of copper under the steel which will allow the heat to diffuse homogeneously in stainless steel and therefore in food. (Price: from 100 euros)

The use of diamond



Swiss Diamond pushes the limits of the traditional non-stick pan and offers the consumer a utensil using real diamond crystals. The use of diamond allows to obtain a non-stick coating which does not abrade, does not crack or blister. No more cleaning chore: it's easy and effortless! (Price: 105 euros for a 26 cm pan)
