What is ICON Cookware?
Cooking with cast iron has been around for centuries. They're durable, they retain heat for hours, and they create a lovely crispy exterior to our food. However, cast iron tends to be heavier side and cleaning can be more high-maintenance, along with the risk of rust forming. Are you looking for a cast iron alternative? Meet ICON, a new carbon steel cookware that meets all of the criteria. ICON pans showcase quality and durability, and produces delicious meals with a chemical-free surface! It's a new type of carbon steel cookware engineered to last a lifetime!
How is ICON Made?
- Every ICON pan begins with a 2.5mm thick piece of steel; this helps with balancing weight, even heat distribution and thermal durability.
- Once the steel blanks are formed into the pan’s shape, each pan is machined to remove all impurities and to create a smooth surface.
- Next, the pans are put through a patented metallurgical process called NITROSEAL™ Technology. This process occurs in a gaseous 1000 degree F atmosphere for several hours. This produces a new surface compound that consists of Iron, Carbon, Oxygen, and Nitrogen. There are no chemicals used!
- NITROSEAL™ Technology produces a surface that is 9-times harder than steel, is rust-proof, and will not peel or react with acidic foods.
- ICON pans are pre-seasoned using a thin coating of vegetable oil that's baked on - creating a surface that is very easy to clean! Check out our step-by-step video to learn how to season your ICON pan.
- All ICON handles are connected with special alloy stainless rivets which are tightened with each heat cycle. The handles are made of cast stainless steel, which prevents the handle heating up while you cook.
