Swiss Durotherm Cookware: Kuhn Rikon Brings Thermal Cooking to the U.S.
GREENBRAE, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermal cooking? A new concept for American consumers, it's been popular in Europe for a generation. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20011029/NYFNSX07 ) Kuhn Rikon introduces thermal cooking to the U.S. with Durotherm, double- walled cookware that makes cooking easier and more convenient. The double walls of this handcrafted stainless steel cookware trap heat inside so food can cook on low or no heat in its own moisture. You can start a dish on the stovetop -- and then the double-walled construction takes over and finishes cooking the meal off the stove. The pan's thermal insulation will keep meals piping hot for up to two hours. Durotherm's insulated lids provide a "vapor seal" to lock in heat and moisture. Their convex shape allows for self-basting. This means you bring out natural flavors instead of cooking them away. Durotherm allows you to cook with less oil or water. The food provides the flavor, so you don't need the quantity of salt or seasonings required for conventional cooking. With Durotherm, oxygen can't get in, so food retains its bright, natural colors. Vitamins and nutrients are preserved. Uniting Swiss precision with tabletop elegance, Durotherm is designed to go straight to the table, where it keeps food at the perfect serving temperature. It comes with a clip-on serving base to protect fine linens and tabletops. With Durotherm, second helpings are as hot as the first. Durotherm's heat-efficient core distributes heat evenly and prevents burning and sticking. Made of heavyweight, non-reactive 18/10 stainless steel, Durotherm works equally well with induction or conventional ranges. Dripless rims are designed for accurate pouring. Durotherm saves up to 60% of cooking energy, a bonus as energy costs skyrocket. It also reduces clean up, since you can cook and serve in one pot. Kuhn Rikon Durotherm Cookware comes with easy recipes and tips. Each piece is individually numbered and guaranteed to last a lifetime. Durotherm Cookware includes a variety of sizes including the 3 Qt. Large Casserole, suggested retail price $184.00, and the 5 Qt. Stock Pot, suggested retail price $194.00. Kuhn Rikon Durotherm Cookware is available nationally at retailers including Sur La Table (800-240-0853) and Professional Cutlery Direct Catalog (800-859-6994).
