Hestan has just introduced a new line of cookware that apparently wants to challenge All Clad and Demeyere, not to mention all of the cladded SS pots and pans made by Mauviel, de Buyer, and Fissler--and it's different in interesting ways.
Here are the claims from the Williams Sonoma website:
"Hestan pushes the boundaries of innovation in stainless-steel cookware with its NanoBond™ technology. The patented, multilayer structure of titanium-based alloys bonds directly to stainless steel through an environmentally friendly and chemical-free process, creating thousands of superdense nano layers on the cookware surface. Exceedingly resistant to scratches, staining and salt pitting, these pots and pans are four times more durable than traditional stainless steel and will maintain their beauty and performance for a lifetime.
NanoBond™ surface is a proprietary blend of alloys including titanium, creating a highly strong, resilient and lasting finish.
Triple-bonded stainless-steel construction with pure aluminum core delivers 35% greater heat conductivity than other aluminum-clad cookware.
Sealed rims are encapsulated in stainless steel to prevent delamination.
Surface is highly scratch- and stain-resistant and safe for use with metal utensils.
Made in Italy."
