Cast Iron especially light cast iron is making a comeback in cookware as it is viewed as one of the safest and healthiest cookware. Rust has always been the main complaint but with La Gourmet's innovation and modern technology this has been overcome.
What is Nitrigan?
It is a special process which changes the surface of the cast iron to create a hardened surface. The structure and DNA of the material is altered resulting in a material that is highly resistant to rust and incredibly strong and durable. No chemical are added which makes the special nitrigan treatment on cast iron a healthy alternative to PTFE coating cookware.
With consistent use and proper use and care, the La Gourmet Nitrigan Wok will develop more release capabilities as a natural patina is created with constant use and proper conditioning. This makes it a healthy and safe cookware which complies to the Green Ecology of today.
Please ensure to always dry thoroughly the nitrigan wok as water and not following the use & care instructions and seasoning instruction may cause rust spots to occur.
