Cristel is home of the Cook & Serve Concept. The Cristel handle-free design transforms a performance cooking utensil into an elegant serving dish that will keep the heat locked throughout the metal. This allows that a saucepan becomes a casserole dish, a pan becomes a serving dish, a frying pan becomes a dish. Products are suitable for all cooking sources including the oven (with or without the lid).
Cristel introduced four product lines: Casteline fixed handles, Casteline removable handles, Strate fixed handles and Strate removable handles. Product assortment includes: fry pans, sauté pans, saucepans, stockpots, casseroles, inserts and many more!
Cristel Casteline is made of a 5-ply bonded alloy of stainless steel and aluminum. It distributes temperature evenly across the entire product for gentle, economical and tasty cooking.
Cristel Strate is made of a 3-ply bonded alloy of stainless steel and aluminum. The heat is simultaneously spread over the whole surface of the base and sides. For gentle, economic cooking with no risk of sticking and protecting all the nutritional qualities of food.
