Made since 1920 in Bevano, a small town on the shores of
Lake Maggiore in Northern Italy, Italo Ottinetti produces a range of
cookware and bakeware for the professional chef and the home cook.
Unique and stylish, Ottinetti Cookware combines the optimal
cooking properties of aluminium with the beauty of brass. It sits alone
in the market as a traditional, handcrafted product designed to last.
The aluminium used is greater than 99% pure, ensuring it is entirely safe
for use with food, and it meets the EU standards EN 601 & EN602.
Lighter in weight than other traditional materials such as cast iron,
aluminium is the best conductor of heat after copper but considerably
less expensive than copper. This means it heats up fast and
cools down quickly giving the cook great control.
Ottinetti can be used on the stove top or in the oven.
ABOUT ALUMINIUM COOKWARE
Aluminium is the best conductor of heat next to copper, but more cost effective. Ottinetti aluminium cookware is certified 99.5% pure which means it is
completely safe to cook in. However it is not recommended to store acidic foods, such as tomato based dishes, in these pans for any period of time.
This can cause the surface of the pan to pit.
DEBUNKING THE ALZHEIMERS MYTH
From the Alzheimers Association of America: “During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminium emerged as a possible suspect in Alzheimer’s. This suspicion led to concern about exposure to aluminium through everyday sources such as pots and pans, beverage cans, antacids and antiperspirants. Since then, studies have failed to confirm any role for aluminium in causing Alzheimer’s.”
