We are all familiar with traditional non-stick pans. Initially, they work great. The food doesn't stick to them and they are easy to clean. You forget and use metal utensils and the finish begins to scrape off. Or, maybe you leave the pan on the heat to long and burn the finish until it's a nice dark brown! Overheating the pan also often warps it and then you can't cook anything in the middle; all your eggs run to the sides of the pan! Most traditional non-stick pans do not heat uniformly, so you get hot spots and have to continually move the food around in the pan to cook it evenly. And then the finish really starts to break down. You begin to see gray or black flakes in your food! You're eating the non-stick surface that's coming off your pan! When the plastic coating starts to peel off, exposing the metal, often aluminum, underneath, it's time for a new pan. You must replace your pans again!
The more expensive, thick, heavy-duty pots and pans cook evenly, but, food sticks to these pans and they require a lot of heavy-duty clean up. These thick, heavy pans will also warp if overheated. So, we still do not have the ideal pan for cooking, flexibility of use, or easy clean up. That was true before Gastrolux® BIOTAN® cookware was developed!
Now, Gastrolux® BIOTAN® cookware provides you with the best of both worlds: professional grade, heavy-duty, even heating pans with a permanent non-stick surface that allows the use of metal utensils. No blistering, no peeling and no warping! Plus, you can use all Gastrolux® cookware and lids in the oven up to 460º F!
Gastrolux® BIOTAN® cookware begins with a heavy-duty pressure-cast aluminum base. The base is cast by hand, piece by piece, into a 8mm (one third of an inch) thick thermophore base under literally tons of pressure. Gastrolux® BIOTAN® cookware will not warp, no matter how hot the pans get! Even if you put the hot pan in cold water!
This manufacturing process delivers uniform, fast heat distribution and a pan that stays flat. This heat-conducting base ensures optimal energy usage, exceptional heat retention and even cooking temperatures. Next, the Gastrolux® BIOTAN® patented high-tech surface is finished. Titanium and ceramic compounds are super-heated to a 36,032º F (20,000º C) molten, liquefied plasma state. This molten plasma is then blasted into the pans surface at Mach two (twice the speed of sound). The titanium and ceramic compounds literally become part of the finished surface inside and outside the pan.
When looking closely at the Gastrolux® BIOTAN® surface you'll see countless tiny pores, or mini-craters, of similar shape and size. The specially formulated non-stick compound is in the craters. It is not just a coating on top of the craters. The BIOTAN® non-stick surface has a hardness grade of 9 on the MOHS scale. The MOHS scale measures the hardness of gemstones. Diamonds come in with a perfect 10, the hardest substance known to man. And, the Gastrolux® surface is a 9! Under proper usage, it will last for many years to come. No more gray or black flakes of non-stick surface getting into your food! This is the only (or last) non-stick cookware you'll ever need to buy. Your Gastrolux® BIOTAN® cookware is guaranteed not to crack, peel or blister for twenty (20) years from the purchase date (see details in the Warranty section).
Lets look at some other great features of Gastrolux® cookware including; the handles, a splash rim with a grip and the lids:
The patented handle attachment uses no screws and no rivets. So, no loose handles. The handles are ergonomically designed for ease of use and they stay cool on the range-top. No hot handles, no potholders!
The Gastrolux® BIOTAN® pans also have a large splash rim with a grip that makes lifting the pans with two hands safe and easy
The heat-resistant glass lids allow you to see what you're cooking without lifting the lid! You can also put the lids in the oven up to 460º F! The heat will not damage the glass lid or the ergonomically shaped lid knob. The lids can be used on any pan of the same diameter whether a skillet, pot or pan. The lids may be purchased separately.
And, as mentioned previously, all of the Gastrolux® pans, lids, handles and knobs are ovenproof up to 460º F. Great for baking cornbread, finishing off omelets or cooking a roast.
