Matera, the new non-stick collection with a heart of stone
Design, quality and Italian production are the clear selling-points of the new Matera collection of cooking equipment from Ballarini.
Designed to meet the needs of the consumer in an increasingly targeted manner, the Matera series comes with a Granitium non-stick coating, the first non-stick coating reinforced with mineral particles to guarantee a drier cooking process similar to that carried out directly on stone. While emulating all the practicality of classic non-stick coatings that enable you to cook without using oil or fat, technical tests have actually demonstrated that Granitium also allows you perfectly sear ingredients at low temperatures, the ideal condition for conserving the nutritional values of food in the absence of liquids.
To cook meat perfectly on the outside while locking in all of the juices that make it succulent, people normally barbecue or use an iron pan, with temperatures rising as high as 400°C. Thanks to the Granitium coating you can now achieve the same results at 200°C, i.e. with a more healthy cooking method. Cooking times are also reduced and no smoke is produced.
is the product of nanotechnologies developed by the Ballarini R&D department which carries out quality control checks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, as stated on the product packaging.
But that is not all. The thick cast pure aluminium body, the bicomponent handle produced from phenolic resin and exceptional heat-insulating engineering plastic, and the depth of the range make the collection particularly sturdy and practical. The Thermopoint device guarantees healthier cooking practices and energy savings.
As ever, the name of this Ballarini collection acts as an Italian ambassador in the world. In this case it is the city of Matera, whose famous Sassi are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
