All the pots and pans are equipped with large, stay-cool handles that are dishwasher and oven safe. The pouring rim allows for mess-free pouring and the handy measuring scale inside makes following recipes even easier. This entire line of pans are International Busse Longlife Design Award winners.All Fissler pots and pans feature the CookStar all-stove base that allows for even heat distribution and superior heat storage, and can be used on any type of cook top. The base is composed of 18/10 stainless steel with a 6 millimeter thick aluminum core for optimal heat distribution, diffusion and storage without hot spots. The bases of the pans are slightly concave to ensure it will be perfectly flat while heating that also helps to prevent warping. Fissler offers an unlimited lifetime guarantee that the CookStar base will remain flat on any type of stove. The lid helps to save energy, as well as keeping food perfectly cooked. Condensation that is built up during the cooking process moves to the center of the lid, dripping back into your food making it tastier and juicier. It also requires the least amount of water when steaming vegetables to lock in flavor and nutrients.
