Despite the transformations that have a constant feature of the city outskirts in recent decades, the site preserves the memory and tangible evidence of what landscape meant for the Arab and Norman civilization in the broad context of the region that over time has come to be known as the "Conca d'Oro", in this island in the centre of the Mediterranean.

14.05.2015, H 19.00 "San Lorenzo: Purity in cooking", Milan (Italy)

Purity in Cooking


There’s only one choice for healthy cooking: PAN 999.

 

San Lorenzo launches a collection of cooking utensils, made of Pure Silver and Pure Iron, for people who want a healthy lifestyle in harmony with nature

 

The result of a lengthy research process – begun in 1992 – on the use of 999 Pure Silver and the development of a new system, now protected by an international patent, the new PAN 999 collection of cooking utensils is made out of Pure Iron on the outside  and Pure Silver on the inside.

 

Pure Silver, used in the kitchen rather than in its usual decorative sphere, has many important and well–known qualities: it is actively bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal;it contains no copper, lead, aluminium, nickel, chrome, cadmium, cobalt, paint, resins or PFOA non–stick coatings. Silver, which is the best heat conductor among metals and spreads the heat uniformly, makes it possible to cook quickly at low heat, preserving the antioxidant properties and nutritional values of foods as they cook and preventing them from burning. The Iron, used on the outside of the utensils, reinforces the properties of the Silver, reducing heat dispersion and guaranteeing that the object can be used on induction or glass–ceramic cooktops, gas burners and ovens. Manufactured  entirely in Italy and recyclable,  all the utensils in the PAN 999 collection are finished in semi-matte Silver and are dishwasher-safe.

 

Since 1992, San Lorenzo – a company acknowledged since the 1970s for introducing design into silverware – produces objects made of 999 Pure Silver. Thanks to the collaboration with Afra and Tobia Scarpa, it developed  an innovative technology that would lead to the creation of the “Cooking with Pure Silver” collection  in 1999. PAN 999 represents yet another important and innovative milestone, achieved by combining Silver and Iron, both in terms of the technology,  and for its significant benefits  to health and wellbeing.

 

PAN 999 confirms the unique qualities of San Lorenzo and its ability to blend innovation and technology  within a perspective focused on people.
