Cooking and handling of pans is part of everyday work for adept professional chefs. Therefore, the design of the Protocole pan centres on optimal use. At first glance, the pan fascinates with its harmonious shape with short, elegant looking handles that particularly catch the eye. Ergonomically optimised, the pan thus guarantees quick and precise handling. It lies perfectly balanced in the hands of users and conveys a high degree of lightness. The choice of materials also fascinates: Protocole features a dual-forged, two-ply body and base that provide stability and very good heat transfer. The inner ply of the Dualtech base is made of stainless steel for hardness and retaining heat even at low temperatures. The outside ply is made of aluminium for immediate heat-up and homogeneous heat distribution. The combination of these materials turns healthy cooking into an easy professional endeavour. The pan heats up quickly and stays warm for long. Thanks to its dual-alloy base the pan is also suitable for use on induction ovens. The advancement of a traditional product with a particular focus on ergonomics thus has led to the emergence of an unusual result – the Protocole pan ensures precise and perfect cooking on stoves.
