Chantal Copper Fusion Frypan 10" Onyx (863-24ME)
Stunning. Elegant. Unique. We can think of many adjectives to describe spectacular new Copper Fusion cookware from Chantal. But, no single adjective does justice to what is the coolest dang cookware we've ever seen. Copper Fusion is unique in its fusion of unsurpassed performance with unequaled beauty.
Sure, cookware isn't primarily about looking good, but Copper Fusion cookware is like kitchen jewelry. It's so striking in appearance, you'll want to leave it out, just so you can look at it. It's that beautiful. Made of premium materials, copper, porcelain enamel, stainless steel, Copper Fusion is as pleasing to the touch as it is to the eye.
But putting it's beauty aside, it's the performance of Copper Fusion that invokes the most superlatives. Chantal has patented a technology that fuses a copper plate with two layers of carbon steel to create pans with superb heat conductivity. These layers are not simply bonded as in "clad" cookware, but fused into a permanent structure.
The cooking surfaces of Copper Fusion are created of two layers rock-hard, stick-resistant, porcelain enamel, impervious to stains, corrosion and interaction with food. The outsides of the pans are also porcelain enamel, in rich colors of Onyx and Red that contrast with the stainless-steel rims.
Copper Fusion's striking handles are solid, cast stainless steel, attached to the pan bodies without rivets. They're extremely comfortable and perfectly balanced, with a flat spot for your thumb. The helper handles are also solid, cast stainless steel.
So you can see what's cooking, Copper Fusion employs tempered-glass lids with broad, brushed stainless-steel rims. The lids are oven safe to 450°
Copper Fusion performs superbly on any stovetop, gas, electric, ceramic, even magnetic induction. It's completely dishwasher safe, broiler safe and safe for storing food. Be aware that it's heavy, as heavy as conventional copper cookware, but it's perfectly balanced for easy handling. And it isn't cheap. But take it from us, we've been around the finest cookware for 30 years; Copper Fusion is a spectacular blend of performance and appearance unlike anything else.
