Teknika, made in Italy by Silga, is one of the most practical and beautiful ranges of stainless steel pans in Europe. Its functional pre-eminence lies in the 'Teknotherm' heat-diffusing base: a thick layer of aluminium sealed in by a protective casing of stainless steel. This ensures even cooking on all types of heat source and cuts down energy consumption. The construction of the walls gives instant heat right through the body of the pan. Lids fit closely to facilitate minimum-fat cooking and pan rims are gently curved, preventing liquids boiling over. These superb pans will give a lifetime's wear. Suitable for all types of cookers including induction. Unless otherwise stated, lids are supplied separately and are interchangeable for pans throughout the range.
