PAN 999 Saucepan Round Handles

by Tobia Scarpa

Saucepan 22x8cm 999 Tobia Scarpa San Lorenzo 1

Pure silver and pure iron are used in this award-winning collec­tion of cooking tools by Tobia Scarpa, includ­ing the Pan999 Saucepan. This inno­va­tion of silver binding with pure iron found that silver is a better conduc­tor of heat than copper, able to diffuse it in a uniform manner, allow­ing food to be cooked rapidly at a low temper­a­ture and thus preserv­ing its nutri­ent value, avoid­ing burning and perform­ing an antibacterial action.

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.

All pieces of the Pan 999 collec­tion are sold indi­vid­u­ally at Cooks & Poets.
