Viking Cookware: Quality & Beauty
Viking cookware provides both the quality that cooks desire for food preparation, and the beauty they appreciate. A consistent surface temperature is maintained on the bottom and sides of Viking pans, which allows you to evenly brown, sauté, fry, and boil. Uniform results are possible thanks to the 3-ply design of this cookware—the core is made of high quality 18/10 stainless steel and is wrapped in a heat-conducting aluminum alloy with a durable stainless steel layer covering the aluminum. The rugged stainless steel exterior provides a surface that’s non-reactive, highly resistant to corrosion, rust, bending, and chips. It’s a pain-free cookware choice!
Caring for Stainless Steel Cookware
Stainless steel is easy to maintain, which means you’ll keep your pots and pans looking polished and sparkling without much time and effort.
High-quality stainless steel is widely known to be one of the healthiest cooking surfaces because it doesn’t leach the toxic chemicals that PTFE-based formulas (such as Teflon) and copper cookware can leach. The Viking brand offers sturdy, high quality stainless steel pots and pans handcrafted in the USA.
Variety of Great Options
Choosing a variety of pots and pans in different sizes and styles is helpful when setting up a new kitchen and we have several great options for you. Pan styles and sizes include: Viking 3.4 and 6.4-quart casserole, 3.4 and 6.4-quart sauté, and 2 and 3-quart sauce. Stainless steel lids with ergonomic, stay-cool handles are included with the sauté, sauce, and casserole pans.
Casserole pans with their vertical side walls are primarily used for recipes that require placing the pan in the oven. Most casserole recipes call for meats and vegetables and their flavors blend during the cooking process.
Sauté pans have large bottoms and short sides, which allows steam to escape while you sauté meats and vegetables. This type of pan makes it easier to move foods around the pan quickly in order to cook them evenly and lightly.
Saucepans are traditionally used for boiling or simmering liquids, but are a highly versatile tool that can be used for everything from soups, to pastas, and puddings.
Naturally, the frypan is used primarily for frying. This pan has a proportionally large cooking surface, with short sides that flare out.
Safe on Any Cooking Surface
All Viking pans are safe to use on any cooking surface, including induction cooktops. They’re also oven safe, which adds to their versatility for meal preparation. Whether you choose Viking cookware for use on an induction, gas, or electric cooktop, you’re sure to enjoy this beautiful and highly functional cookware!
