Hard Anodized Exterior

The coating makes this harder than stainless steel. It is very wear resistant because of the nonporous, density of the aluminum.


This cookware set is made with the “Coolest Touch” handle that is one of the most user friendly handles with a nice grip and heat resistant finish.

Non-stick Interior

The cooking surface is non-stick titanium reinforced that makes the cooking healthier, easy to clean, and metal utensil safe
