Founded in 1974, Swiss Diamond International Sarl is a private company located in the Swiss Alps. Using the demand for more efficient and improved non-stick cookware as inspiration, Swiss Diamond engineered an innovative type of non-stick coating that utilizes real diamond crystals--which is the hardest material known--and they patented the technology. In 2006, the company sought to improve their revolutionary technology and spent four years researching and testing. In 2010, Swiss Diamond released their advanced HD coating line, which features a 30% overhaul. All current products are manufactured using the new HD coating.
The Swiss Diamond HD coating is its new and improved advanced technology that is reinforced with real diamond crystals. This coating develops a ground-breaking non-stick surface that allows you to cook without any additional oils. The HD line is easy to clean and maintain, and it is guaranteed to last a lifetime. PFOA-free, the Swiss Diamond HD line is best suited for any ceramic, gas, or electric heat source. The line features the patented diamond crystal-infused coating. This technology came to exist because: diamonds are extremely durable, giving the coating more resistance; diamonds function better as a heat conductor since it is four times more conductive than copper and creates a perfectly balanced heat distribution, and diamonds have natural non-stick properties.

Swiss Diamond nonstick pans require care to help them last a lifetime. To keep the pan’s unsurpassed non stick properties, continue to take special care.
Low to medium heat
Never cook with high heat. This causes damage to the cooking surface. Preheat your pan on a medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes before adding your food.
Swiss Diamond nonstick pans contain small diamond pieces within the surface, allowing you to use little to no oil. If you do use oil, use a high temperature cooking oil such as sunflower, avocado, etc. It is not recommended to use olive oil or butter. Never use a non stick spray.
Never use metal utensils when cooking on a nonstick pan. Silicone and wooden tools are best. Never cut food within the pan. If you’re using an immersion blender, make sure it never touches the sides or bottom of the pan.
Swiss Diamond Cookware is oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius). Always use pot holders when picking up the pan as the handles will get extremely hot and will cause harm.
Always clean Swiss Diamond pans with hot soapy water after each use. Do not use an abrasive brush as this can ruin the nonstick surface. Swiss Diamond cookware is dishwasher safe, but we recommend washing by hand. Make sure to thoroughly the pan to prevent harmful bacteria growth.
When stacking pans, be sure to place paper towels in between each pan to prevent scratches.
