All the AMT Gastroguss products are made from hand-cast aluminum by skilled craftsmen. Among the advantages of hand-cast aluminum are: longer curing time, which prevents stress of the material, a homogeneous casting and the occurence of a smaller number of air bubbles in the material than in the case of mechanized casting.
AMT Gastroguss cookware have a very thick base, of up to 9 mm thick. The base stores more energy and does not overheat easily. The AMT Gastroguss cookware are also famous for the fact that the base does not deform over time, even if they are subjected to extreme temperature variations.
The aluminum that underlies Gastroguss products is first sandblasted, for the 12-fold increase of the adhesion surface of the layers to be applied on it. The first layer applied to the cookware is made of titanium oxide, burned at 20,000°C, being almost as hard as diamond. The following layers applied are: the anticorrosive layer, the median layer with ceramic particles and the non-stick surface layer called Lotan®.
This anti-adhesive layer can be found only at the AMT Gastroguss pans and, beside anti-adhesive properties, which help to easily clean the cookware, it also has antibacterial effect.
The anti-adhesive Lotan® layer offers all the advantages of a classic anti-adhesive coating, but it does all this without containing PFOA.
The handles of the Gastroguss cookware withstand temperatures up to 240°C. Thus, you can gratinate the foods immediately after you have fried them on the hob, without changing the dish. The ergonomic handles of the cookware were developed with the help of the National Culinary Team of Germany.
This grill-pan can be washed in the dishwasher and can be used on all hobs, including the induction ones.
