Ballarini Parma non-stick pans are made in Italy and designed for every day cooking. The cold forged aluminum pans have a speckled, ultra durable Granitium non-stick coating that is reinforced with ceramic. This makes for a lightweight, evenly heat efficient, and exceptionally scratch resistant pan. PFOA-free nonstick coating offers quick release and superior browning, requiring less oil for healthier cooking and makes clean up super easy. Thermopoint technology guarantees precise temperature control, heat-sensitive handle turns red when hot and green when cool. 3.8 quart saute pan also has a helper handle and comes with glass lid to keep an eye on what's cooking.
