There are certainly several high-quality materials used to manufacture this product. The pan is made from a European-standard aluminum alloy. On the outside, it has a reinforced mineral particle layer and a high temperature resistant outer layer. Inside there’s a scratch-resistant and wear-resistant mineral layer with the non-stick layer on top.
Its coating is eco-friendly Swiss imported granite ILAG. It’s PFOA and PTFE free. It is non-toxic and allows for safe, healthy cooking.
Its handle is different than most. It is made out of wood. The ergonomic design makes it comfortable to hold, and it stays cool.
The base of the pan is 5mm thick, encouraging heat distribution. You can use it on induction stoves, electric, gas, ceramic, galls, and halogen cookers. It won’t go in the oven.
To clean, all you need is a soft cloth. Using steel balls of rough pads can damage the coating. You can’t put it in the dishwasher, but you won’t need to.
Carote offers a range of sizes, all with the same quality materials. All of the products come with a 12-month warranty.
What We Like About It:
Most of us loved the design. The granite provides a nice change to solid black. The wooden handle is also unique and looks nice. The chefs in our test group were worried about the strength of the handle. There aren’t any rivets holding it in place. After testing the pan, they felt satisfied that it wouldn’t break. It also made it easier to clean because there weren’t any fiddly areas.
The pan heats up incredibly quickly; we liked this for saving a bit of time. The food was cooked evenly. Some people used a bit of olive oil, others spray, and the rest used nothing. In each case, the food just slid straight off.
Washing was a breeze. It was wiped clean in a few seconds. Even with just a drop of dishwasher soap and a quick wipe, there’s no oil residue.
Overall, the testers in our group, along with lots of online reviewers, were pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality and ease of cleaning. The design is lovely and we felt that it was worth the price.
