It is made of aluminium, which is hardened by immersing in acidic bath and then electrically charged to oxidize the surface. This process makes the aluminium surface harder and stronger than stainless steel while retaining its light weight. It gives non-porous and Non-stick smooth surface. It is extremely durable and does not chip, peel or crack. It is corrosion and scratch resistant. Excellent and uniform heat conductivity delivers reliable cooking.
