The Alu Pro frying pan 26cm is made from aluminum, which means it's extra light weight and quickly reaches the right temperature. The bottom of the pan is extra thick and consists of 3 layers. This allows you to use the frying pan on an induction cooktop, but means it's also suitable for all other heat sources. Thanks to the titanium base layer, the non-stick coating is extra durable. In order to prevent damage to the non-stick coating, we don't recommend the use of spatulas made of harder materials. You should clean the pan with some soapy water after use. Demeyere offers a 5-year warranty on manufacturing and material defects.
