What exactly is Silargan by Silit?

CookingPapa | Nov 20, 201410:56 AM     5

My Wife and I have been using Silargan cookware since we got married in 2010 and enjoyed every bit of them. But as I have growing interests in cookwares in general thesedays...I was wondering what exactly Silargan is, in specific.

On the company website, it is advertised as non-porous, nickel-free ceramic...but I guess they are referring to the coasting of the surface. Then what is the material that is *underneath* this ceramic? Steel? Aluminum? Cast-Iron (I know Le Creuset and Staub have enamel coasting on top of cast-iron body)?

I look forward to hearing from you all...Thanks
