Choose your pots and pans
Stainless steelStainless steel is very durable and can take the bumps of life in your kitchen. Stainless steel pots and pans without a non-stick coating are dishwasher safe, which makes them easy to maintain. Some of our best pans have an all-over aluminium core between two layers of stainless steel. The aluminium helps to conduct heat evenly through dense foods like stew. Other stainless steel pans feature a three-layer base, which distributes heat evenly and heats up quickly for better control when cooking.
AluminiumAluminium is a light material with excellent heat conducting properties.
But because it is a soft metal, cookware made purely of aluminium can get scratched and discoloured. That’s why
we combine aluminium with a non-stick coating in our cookware. This also prevents food from sticking.
Cast ironAlthough heavier than other materials, cast iron cookware is still unbeatable for browning food evenly. It’s also ideal for slow-cooking large dishes and casseroles. Cast iron pots and pans improve with age as they gradually absorb cooking fat into their porous surface.
Teflon®We have four different types of Teflon® non-stick coatings that we use on our pots and pans.
Teflon® Professional is our most hardwearing non-stick coating made for those of you who set high standards and cook often. If correctly cared for, this cookware will last many years. It is used in our FAVORIT and STIL series.
Teflon® Platinum Plus is a very hardwearing non-stick coating made for daily use. It is in our IKEA 365+ and MEDALJ series.
Teflon® Select is a hardwearing non-stick coating perfect to cook with several times a week. It is used in our SKÄNKA series.
Teflon® Classic is a good non-stick coating for use a few times a week. It is in our KAVALKAD series and GRILLA grill pan.
We also have a basic non-stick coating for those of you who like to use non-stick pans occasionally. It is in our PYRA wok and STEKA frying pan.
