We use Krona cookware in our test kitchen and at home. It has the best, most even heat conductivity of any cookware we have used. (Set your heat lower than what you are used to these pans heat up super fast.) And we love the features.
The Krona line of cookware is made with the finest quality stainless steel with a superior cladding technology. The tri-ply encapsulated cladding ensures superb heat conductivity for rapid, even cooking. Its unique construction sandwiches a layer of aluminum between two layers of stainless steel.
Cook foods evenly and accurately. Make pasta and drain the water off without a colander and without burning yourself. See when your broccoli is cooked without lifting the lid. Cook cream soups and strain them when serving through the small sieve. Cook a roast in the oven on either dry roast or steam.
You're going to love these pans.
""This sauce pan is a real nice buy . . . it heats real fast and the straining lid and the pour spouts on both sides of the pan are great ideas. For soups and sauces, you don't need a ladle or serving spoon. Just pour it. This makes things so easy. I want the rest of the set."" --KP in NV
""These Krona pots cook very well, and the heat distributes very quickly due to the Tri-ply encapsulated base. With the lids on, cooking time is greatly reduced. The pots clean up easily and have retained their shiny good looks. I've burned food twice in the smaller pot, but it has cleaned up nicely with a little effort and stainless steel cleaner. The larger pot has two handles which stay cool, and this size is very versatile for a small casserole or larger saucepan. The weight of these is just right, even the lids are well made and have a good fit. These stainless steel pots are definitely a good buy and a joy to use."" Review found online
