Our appetite for cooking is growing. And as we improve our recipe game, we need the right equipment, too. This is where SENSUELL cookware comes in. Before getting started on it, we worked with pros and food lovers to learn what features they find essential for culinary magic.
The SENSUELL team spent a year speaking with professional chefs to get their take on how the pots and pans should look, work and be constructed. Naturally, the demands were high. The range had to be functional, incredibly durable, and work extremely well with heat.
"The result you get from a pot or pan is really down to how it's constructed,” says product developer Lennie Malmgren. "So for SENSUELL we decided to work with stainless steel for its heat holding properties, and at a thickness that's versatile enough to cook just about any recipe." The benefit of using stainless steel that is thicker than your typical home cookware, is that it heats up consistently without hot spots or cold patches, meaning your ingredients are cooked more evenly. And a weightier construction means they're more than durable enough for a restaurant-level workload – or say decades worth of dinner parties.
If you haven't used restaurant quality stainless steel pans before there's just one technique you need to remember. Start the pan on high heat, then add some butter or oil before lowering the heat to halfway before you start cooking. This will ensure your ingredients brown evenly and won't stick to the pan. No matter what recipe you're mastering next. "I find it exciting to think that these pots and pans can help people perfect their recipes and enjoy cooking even more. Lennie says. "And that you can keep on enjoying cooking for years to come because they're built to last.”
