Each piece of Demeyere Atlantis cookware is designed for a specific cooking task to ensure that you get the best possible results. Demeyere cookware is especially energy efficient because each pan or pot is structured to channel maximum energy to the food and minimize wasted/lost heat. Lids are designed to fit snugly to retain maximum heat. Demeyere trademarked "Inductoseal" bottom allows for slow, even heating and efficient energy use. For best results, if using gas, do not allow flames to reach sides of pan. If heating water, bring to boil or to desired temperature, then add salt. If heating highly acidic foods, we recommend not leaving in pan for more than six hours.
