03. Why is heat transfer so important?

The cast process allows the cookware to be shaped in various thicknesses where it makes the most sense. The pan bottoms are thicker so they absorb and retain heat well, therefore using less energy. The pan side walls are thin so they distribute heat quickly. The handle connection point is well constructed to provide strength while transferring food from the stove to the table. The lids are thick and heavy to retain moisture.

Heat transference throughout the pan is vital to preparing any dish. Heat needs to be distributed evenly so uniform cooking results are achieved. Magnalite® cookware is precision finished to eliminate uneven spots in the pan surface that may cause uneven heat distribution.
