Gourmet cookware for serious chefs and home cooks
Meyer Corporation is the world's third largest
manufacturer of gourmet cookware. Two of Meyers cookware lines are very popular with
both serious chefs and home cooks who take their cooking seriously.
The AnolonŽ Professional line is for consumers who wants the commercial
features and quality of cookware with a hard anodized body, heavy weight riveted metal
handles, a nonstick surface, and a low silhouette glass lid. The extra weight of the
Analon series improves heat distribution, substantially reducing the occurrence of
"hot spots" and maximizing food release durability.
The CirculonŽ Classic line is designed
to accommodate the needs of everyday cooking in busy households. Heat resistant
plastic handles are oven safe to 350 F. An interesting addition to this line
are the unique straining pans. The 5-quart Straining Colander Stockpot lid has
two hole sizes for straining small or large foods. The 9-inch Straining Saute
Pan and the 2.5-quart Straining Windsor Pan have different size pour spouts
on either side of the pan.
We have used and are impressed with the cookware listed below.
