Over the years we extend the lives of pots and pans far past their expiration date. With minimal sentimental value and a decreasing track record of usefulness, the set of skillets and pans I received as a wedding gift reached the point of no return.
The test of comparison provided all the convincing I ever needed. After one night of preparing dinner using my Anolon Nouvelle Copper 12 inch French Skillet, my vintage version officially entered retirement.
The stainless steel construction paired with copper base allows for optimum heat control and distribution. The cast steel safely handles oven temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, preparing this versatile skillet for whatever food requests come you way.
The durable interior construction also makes the Anolon Nouvelle line dishwasher safe and resistant against metal utensils- one of my favorite features! My scratched and scraped vintage skillet does not stand a chance of returning to my new stovetop collection.
Anolon delivers products capable of professional performance while maintaining their signature timeless design. After years of trying to hide the scratches revealing the extent of wear and tear on my skillet, I learned to embrace the ‘out with the old and in with the new’ mentality when it comes to cookware.
