Please note that a specific care is necessary to keep the pans of the Céracuivre Collection in perfect condition for years to come. By following a few simple and effective tips, the non-stick effect of the ceramic-coated pans and pots will remain perfect for a long time.
As a natural material and thanks to its excellent characteristics, wood is perfectly suitable for the production of chopping boards as well as butcher blocks. For a start, chopping boards and butcher blocks made of wood do not have a negative effect on the sharpness of the knife blade. In addition, wood contains a natural substance that kills off bacteria or at least limits their survival capability considerably. As a result, wood is much more hygienic than most other materials and, at the same time, does have a beautiful appearance.
The oil begins to steam in the pan as a well-flavoured beef point steak is gently put into it - this is one of the simplest but also one of the most sensual moments while cooking. When the meat sizzles in the pan and the roasting flavor develops, you know what's in your iron pan: an remarkable piece of cooking culture.
If you have ever been lucky enough to see an expert chef cook, then you probably gush about the divine sophistication and quickness with which he uses the knife on his wooden chopping board, cutting shallots and leek into extremely delicate rings.
Tradition meets modernism in the best possible way: the cooking pots of the Prima Matera collection "Inocuivre Induction" by de Buyer are made of high-quality copper. At the same time, state-of-the-art technologies are used in production to make sure that all pots are suitable for induction cookers. The result is well-designed cookware of top quality that even meets high standards unfailingly.
There is a widespread belief that the clocks in France tick somewhat differently. Maybe it is simply a tribute to a time that was not as fast moving as today. However, one thing is certain: time only plays an ancillary role when it comes to manufacturing handcrafted goods of high quality. It is a matter of fact that the very firm wood of the slow-growing common hornbeam used in the production of chopping boards or butcher blocks needs its time to grow. To manufacture an excellent work piece out of this good wood takes some time as well - but the result is high-quality cookware that lasts for a lifetime.
