Frying Pan 30cm Pan 999 Tobia Scarpa San Lorenzo 5

The PAN 999 Frying Pan, designed by Tobia Scarpa, has an extended black handle and main­tains the clean design and pronounced border of the other pieces in the PAN 999 line. As the most common cooking vessel, Frying Pan, avail­able in a small and large size, uses pure silver and pure iron to allow cooking at low temper­a­tures, preserv­ing the nutri­tional values and the antiox­i­dant quality of food.

Each refined piece of PAN 999 cook­ware is designed to cook in, serve with, and put in the dish­washer for quick cleanup. Sulfi­da­tion (black­en­ing) of the silver surface during cooking is normal and to be expected. It occurs without any nega­tive effect on health and on food quality and can be peri­od­i­cally removed with the non-toxic White of Spain (puri­fied clay) included with each piece. Strew clay over silver surface and rub with damp paper towel or cloth, then rinse.

PAN 999 cook­ware includes a pan, pot, saucepan, lids, and a frying pan. All sold sepa­rately at Cooks & Poets.
