We use a variety of materials for our bakeware, though the majority are based on a core of Aluminum
Aluminium alloy is an extremely efficient heat conductor, resulting
in even heat distribution during baking and reduced cooking times. It is the preferred chioce of the vast majority of professional
Anodising effectively seals-in the aluminium, in much
the same way as a non-stick coating does and gives bakeware easy-release, easy-clean properties.
We offer our products in two finishes - silver anodised and hard anodised. For the majority of uses,
silver anodising is the most appropriate finish and hence forms the backbone of our product range.
During processing the molecules of aluminium in the surface layer change their structure to form an "anodic oxide
film", hence the name "anodised aluminium". This change is permanent. The surface can never blister or
peel - even under the most adverse conditions. Anodised aluminium will never rust.

Silver Anodising (Alsil):
surface is characterised by a silver, smooth, easy-release, easy clean finish and the aluminium core is effectively "sealed
Hard anodising is related to silver anodising but is a more advanced finish. After prolonged processing, a film is built
up which can be 10 times thicker than the film on silver anodised bakeware. It is this thick film which gives hard anodised
bakeware its characteristic dark grey colour.
The surface is permanently changed to give a harder-than-steel finish.
Metal utensils, such as whisks and spoons can be used without damaging the bakeware although surgical steel knives may cut
into the surface.
Properly cared-for, hard anodised bakeware will
last a lifetime.
