4. Which material

UL / Ultralight

Our advanced base material. Aluminum is a light-weight material with good heat conductivity.

  • Low weight, good heat conduction
  • Soft material, dents easily

NS / Nonstick 

“Teflon” as it is also called, is mainly used in the frying pan but also in the pots. A coating that provides a perfect surface for frying with minimal fat and is easy to clean.

  • Easy to clean
  • Less durable, use plastic/wooden utensils and protect during transport

HA / Hardanodized

Hard anodizing is a surface treatment that makes the surface hard and scratch resistant. Protects against wear and corrosion which can occur on aluminium.

  • Low weight & good heat conduction. Hard scratch-resistant surface
  • More expensive than the base material UL

DS / Duossal 2.0

Our unique super laminate. A perfect combination of two materials in one, aluminum on the outside for good heat spread and stainless steel on the inside.

  • Sturdy & scratch-resistant
  • A slightly more expensive material & somewhat heavier than aluminum alone
