Cast Aluminium. What is it all about?

Cast Aluminium

Cast Aluminium is a type of cookware that is produced by pouring molten aluminium into a cast or mould to form the shape of the cookware.  This technique differs to traditional methods of machine shaped cookware.

Aluminium is one of the most commonly used materials to manufacture cookware as it is a great conductor of heat, heating quickly and evenly, up to 16 times faster than stainless steel cookware.While this improved heat conductivity means less cooking times than using cast iron and stainless steel, aluminium cookware is also lighter meaning ease of use while cooking!

Cast Aluminium is typically a heavier or thicker gauge of cookware that contains a non-stick coating with benefits including:

  1. Lightweight
  2. Great conductor of heat
  3. Oven safe
  4. Quick to cool
  5. Durable
  6. Won’t rust
  7. Easy to use

The Essteele Per Domani Casserole is a perfect example of great cast aluminium cookware. The Heavy guage, cast aluminium core provides ultimate durability and even heat distribution so you can cook all your favourite stovetop-to-oven dishes.
