  1. Viking 4-Ply PerformanceTi 12 Piece Cookware Set - Stainless Steel - Angle_Zoom

    Product Description

    Redefining cookware, Viking PerformanceTi cookware delivers a premium cooking experience; advancing 3-ply stainless steel to the next level by offering nonstick performance without a chemical-based coating and providing professional level results associated with clad cookware. Comprised of four layers, PerformanceTi features an induction capable stainless steel exterior, an aluminum core that distributes heat quickly and evenly, and a lightweight, pure titanium layer. The cooking surface layer is a laser-cladded hardened layer of Titanium, that has a Vickers Scale rating of 680 (over three times harder than stainless steel) making the interior scratch resistant and 100% safe to use with metal utensils. This hardened & polished surface makes cooking healthier, and the state-of-the-art titanium-based cookware delivers uniform heat distribution. Experience wall-to-wall even heat distribution that eliminates hot spots and delivers evenly cooked food. Once properly seasoned, the patented laser-clad surface will deliver nonstick performance without a chemical based nonstick. While traditional nonstick pans wear out over time, PerformanceTi will continue to deliver nonstick results year-over-year because there is no coating. When you notice that the pan is not releasing to your expectations, just quickly season it again and you are ready to cook with easy release. One of the most inert materials, titanium is an excellent choice for cookware due to both its conductivity and the fact that it doesn’t react with acidic or alkaline foods, so it will not impart any metal taste to your food. With a cooking surface that is 3-times harder than stainless steel and 2-times harder than hard anodized aluminum, Viking PerformanceTi cookware features exceptional searing and release during cooking and easy clean up afterwards. The domed stainless steel lids retain moisture during cooking, while keeping food moist and locking in flavor. For best results, we recommend wiping out the pan after cooking or lightly hand washing with dish soap and warm water. You can put this cookware in the dishwasher, but it will remove your seasoning and require you to season the pan again before the next use. For best results, use low-to-medium heat and allow the pan to fully come to temperature before adding oils and protein. Cook with a little oil or fat to maintain the seasoning and nonstick performance between cooking. This premium cookware is designed to last a lifetime and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
