From perfectly seared meats to light, fluffy omelets, Bialetti's ceramic nonstick coating cooks food beautifully. Bialetti's Aeternum Easy collection combines a beautiful design with modern cooking technology for great results while being free of PFOA, PTFE and Cadmium. The interior features a new non-stick coating which is a water-based coating made of titanium and suspended silicate micro-particles, one of the purest and most ecological materials in nature. This material resists scratches, abrasions and offers a smooth, compact and uniform surface that makes it easier to clean and is stain resistant. The ceramic coating is applied at a low temperature, reducing CO2 emissions and is PFOA-free. The coined aluminum base provides excellent thermal conductivity and guarantees optimum heat distribution resulting in less energy required to maintain desired cooking temperature. Bialetti's Aeternum cookware is suitable for use on gas, electric, glass and ceramic stoves. Cookware is safe to use with nylon, silicone or wood utensils. Do not use metal utensils on the nonstick cooking surface and pan is not for use on induction cooktops or in the oven. Bialetti cookware is dishwasher safe. For best results, hand wash with non-abrasive cleaners and liquid dishwashing soap.
