Fresh Mediterranean ingredients aren't the only element that turn a trip to the kitchen into a journey around Italy. Authentic Italian cookware is essential too. Elegantly all in black, the BALLARINI Avola series is designed in Milan by Studio Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez and made in Italy. However, it's not only its elegant exterior that makes the pan a perfect partner at the stove, its inner strengths are also impressive: The solid, forged aluminum heats the cookware quickly and is perfect for impatient cooks on a tight schedule. Also incredibly practical is the Thermopoint integrated into the plastic handle. This shows you when you can start cooking and when the pan is cool enough to clean. Thanks to the 3-ply KERAVIS Extreme non-stick coating, that's not something you'll ever have to worry about again. Use the time instead to think about what delicious meal you'll surprise your loved ones with today.
