Meet John

John Martelli has led production at our factory in Tennessee for over 40 years, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to quality cookware. John doesn’t compromise – he ensures that every piece of cookware that leaves our factory is up to his high standards.

We have a long history of private label custom manufacturing, constantly innovating with the newest technologies. We’re now bringing that experience and innovation directly to you.

We're committed to

Uncompromising Quality

Over 40 years experience in cookware manufacturing has taught us that it's worth it to go the extra mile. That's why we've consistently chosen better materials, smarter design, and higher standards of quality.

Solid Construction

Just as in cooking, the ingredients used in your cookware matter a lot. That's why we've chosen to use titanium-strengthened 5-ply steel that performs incredibly well over a lifetime of use.

BETTER SURFACE

While other premium cookwares will tout their use of 18/10 steel, we decided to go a step further. 316Ti steel is a titanium-strengthened alloy that is even more durable and non-reactive than 18/10. The added titanium and molybdenum makes 316Ti twenty times more resistant to corrosion and pitting from chloride solutions that occur when cooking with salt directly in the pan.

The result? It's the most non-reactive cooking surface available that will stand the test of time.

Better Exterior

Most cookware will use 400 series steel on the exterior for its induction capability. However, most 400 series steel is more prone to corrosion.

That's why we use a special 439 stainless steel that is titanium-strengthened, giving it corrosion resistance comparable to 304 stainless steel.

even & efficient heating

We use three layers of aluminum throughout the body of the cookware to quickly and efficiently distribute heat.

  1. 316Ti Stainless Steel — Unrivaled stability and durability
  2. 1145 Pure Aluminum — Bonding layer; even & efficient heating
  3. 3004 Aluminum — Even & efficient heating
  4. 1145 Pure Aluminum — Bonding layer; even & efficient heating
  5. 439 Stainless Steel — Durability & induction-readiness

Designed for Great Cooking

Not only does our cookware use the best materials available, it's also a joy to cook with.

Professional chefs consistently choose stainless steel cookware for a reason — it creates the most flavorful results. We want to make that experience available to every home cook.

AUTHENTIC FLAVOR

Cast iron or aluminum cookware can chemically interact with the food in your pan, changing its flavor.

Our 316Ti cooking surface develops the flavor of your food without altering it. It’s ideal for building flavor-packed fond and deglazing. Plus, cleaning is simple.

EASY TO USE

We’ve designed our cookware to be comfortable and easy to use.

  • Our handles are actually comfortable in your hand, and have a hollow center to stay cool on the stove.
  • The edges of our cookware are ground smoothly for easy, no-drip pouring.
  • Fully oven-safe, dishwasher-safe, and compatible with all cooktops (including induction).

VARIABLE THICKNESS

Thicker isn’t always better. Instead, we believe every piece of cookware should be designed for its own intended purpose.

Fry pans and skillets are for browning and searing, so ours are thicker in order to retain more heat. Saucepans and stockpots are for simmering or boiling, so ours are a bit thinner in order to respond faster to changes in heat.

Quality & Value

The way we choose to manufacture our cookware isn’t cheap — we use only the best materials and employ skilled craftsmen here in the USA. Yet we are still very competitive in our pricing with other companies that do not have these same exacting standards.

LIFETIME WARRANTY
