Copper Helps Eliminate Hot Spots for Consistent Cooking Performance
ATLANTA (Oct. 10, 2012) — Calphalon®, the leader in premium cookware and kitchenware, continues its legacy of cookware innovation with the launch of Calphalon AccuCore™ Stainless Steel, cookware designed with five individual metal layers – including a copper core – for controlled, even heating and optimum cooking performance.
Calphalon AccuCore Stainless Steel cookware delivers exceptionally even heating, helping to eliminate consumer frustrations with “hot spots” that lead to inconsistent cooking results. At the heart of AccuCore’s five-layer construction is a copper core that heats – and cools – evenly to help maintain a more consistent temperature across the entire pan. Two inner layers of aluminum also conduct heat efficiently, while stainless steel outer layers create a beautiful, durable surface that is dishwasher safe.
“We know that home chefs are looking for cookware that’s not only beautiful and durable, but also offers consistent cooking performance,” said Dave Lew, Sr. Brand Manager for Calphalon. “AccuCore’s five-layer design makes it our most even-heating cookware collection to date, and we’re excited to bring this level of innovation and performance to the kitchen. The highly-conductive copper core provides precise control for browning, searing and sautéing.”
With a brushed stainless steel finish that complements both traditional and contemporary kitchen décor, the AccuCore collection deftly defines commercial elegance. Each pan shines with a ring of copper on the rim, which is gently flared to make pouring easier. Long handles are expertly finished from cast, brushed stainless steel that stays cool on the stovetop and are triple-riveted for durability. Covers are made from tempered safety glass with a stainless steel rim that fits securely over the pan.
The collection is dishwasher safe for easy clean up, and is oven and broiler safe as well. Pans have a magnetic stainless steel exterior that is compatible with all types of cooktops, including energy-efficient induction.
Calphalon AccuCore Stainless Steel cookware is available in a 10-piece set and individually as open stock. The 10-piece set is priced at $699.99. Calphalon AccuCore Stainless Steel is available at calphalon.com, Bloomingdale’s, and select Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s and Belk locations.
