SCANPAN Cookware is manufactured in Denmark by SCANPAN Denmark AS, and is the largest European manufacturer of pressure cast aluminum cookware. The company was founded in 1956. The modern, functional Scandinavian design combines with old world craftsmanship to present SCANPAN Ceramic Titanium NewTek CLASSIC, NewTek PROFESSIONAL and STEEL Cookware.
Scanpan starts with the best tradition in professional cookware: Pressure-cast aluminum. Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat. The SCANPAN heavy-duty base is literally forged into shape under 200 tons of pressure. That's the only way to really eliminate hot spots and to create a perfectly even pan base. And they have researched the optimum thickness for the pan base to prevent any warping and, at the same time, create the perfect condition for the pan to heat up quickly and evenly. The combination of raw material, pressure casting and thickness of the pan body, thus, results in perfectly even heat distribution, superior heat retention and a perfectly flat pan base for life. SCANPAN Cookware is especially engineered for halogen, ceramic and electric ranges but will of course, work on gas and electric coil ranges, as well.
The MOHS scale measures hardness of gemstones. Diamonds come in with a perfect 10. SCANPAN CLASSIC is a 9.5. There is no tool in your kitchen that could damage or destroy the SCANPAN surface!
