Product Description

Scanpan Professional features clean, elegant lines for a most unique cookware design. The stainless steel covers and handles are polished in a two-tone matt-and-mirror finish, setting an exciting visual contrast to the all black pan body. Scanpan Professional is made from a core of solid squeeze-cast aluminum, forged into shape with 200 tons of pressure. The optimum thickness of the pan base prevents warping and keeps the pan base perfectly flat, especially important when used with glass top or ceramic ranges. The patented nonstick surface is created by firing a ceramic-titanium particles into the pan and a specially formulated nonstick compound is embedded in the ceramic-titanium surface. Scanpan Professional is safe to use with metal utensils and comes with a Lifetime Warranty. Made in Denmark. Fry/Omelet Pan 11-inch diameter

Amazon.com Review

Scanpan's premium Professional series combines the same pressure-cast aluminum technology of Scanpan Classic pans, but with the gleam of superior stainless-steel handles and lids. Made in Denmark, this Professional heavy-gauge frying and omelet pan sits perfectly flat, distributes and retains heat evenly for hotspot-free cooking, and features a ceramic-titanium nonstick finish that stands up to metal spatulas. Cast of 18/10 stainless steel for stay-cool stovetop use, the handle is ergonomic for comfort and riveted for strength. It stylishly presents a dual matte/polished finish that handsomely contrasts with the black pan body. Stainless-steel covers are available separately to fit the fry pans. Scanpan Professional pans are safe for any burner type, including induction; oven-use up to 500 degrees F; and dishwasher-cleaning, although washing by hand will best preserve the nonstick finish.

In response to environmental concerns regarding nonstick finishes, Scanpan in 2007 introduced its Green Tek nonstick technology. Working with its suppliers, Scanpan is the first cookware company to completely eliminate the use of the harmful chemical PFOA from the entire process used to make its nonstick compound. The new PFOA-free nonstick finish is now found on all Scanpan Classic and Professional cookware. Scanpan covers its cast-aluminum cookware with a full lifetime warranty. --Ann Bieri

From the Manufacturer

About Green Tek Nonstick Technology:

In the more recent past, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken the leading manufacturer of nonstick compounds to task over excessive emissions of PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid). PFOA has been used as a catalyst in the production of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), the basic building block for all nonstick cookware surfaces.

PFOA is a chemical that is hard to break down in the environment. It has a half life of 3.8 years, meaning that if there are 4 grams of PFOA in the body today, the body will have 2 grams in it in four years from now, 1 gram in eight years from now and so on. The human metabolism does not remove PFOA. While it is not a carcinogen or toxin and is generally assumed inert and not harmful to your health, it is environmentally unfriendly and just sticks around forever. That is why the EPA and the leading nonstick manufacturer have agreed that by 2010, the amount of PFOA used to produce PTFE compounds need to be cut by 95%, and by 2015 no PFOA could be used, at all.

Towards the end of this process, PFOA is completely extracted via ionization filters. Even if any traces of PFOA were still present by the time the nonstick compound reached the cookware factory, the pan surface curing temperatures would destroy such remnants. The same is true for the old nonstick compound used for Scanpan Classic and Scanpan Professional. That’s why Scanpan has always been able to present the finished product as not containing PFOA.

Scanpan Cookware has always been PFOA free, but the negative publicity that PFOA and, by extension, PTFE had received over the last few years, had caused Scanpan to work closely with their suppliers to find a substitute for PFOA that is biodegradable. Scanpan received patents on PFOA-free technology in 2007 and has been producing Scanpan Classic and Scanpan Professional with this new process since spring 2007. With their new Green Tek technology, there is no PFOA used at any stage of the entire process, resulting in a "clean and green" nonstick PTFE compound, the production of which no longer uses chemicals that could have a negative impact on the environment.

The performance of the Scanpan Green Tek surface is not different in any way from the performance of Scanpan's previous surface. And Scanpan continues to incorporate their patented ceramic-titanium technology. Scanpan is safe to use with metal utensils and each piece comes with a lifetime warranty.

Taking Care of Scanpan Professional Cookware:

1. Before first use, remove all packing materials, labels, and tags, and wash pan in hot, soapy water. Rinse well and dry.

2. Heat pan to working temperature. Medium heat is typically sufficient for frying and sauteing. Since each stove top has its own settings, find the best heat setting for your stove by starting at a lower setting, then gradually increase until water splashed on the pan surface evaporates immediately with a sizzle. High heat can be used for other applications, like boiling water, stir frying, oven roasting etc. Note: Scanpan Professional is oven safe to 500 degrees F.

3. Scanpan Professional can be used without oil, butter, or other seasonings, making it especially suitable for low fat diets.

4. After use, remove food and clean Scanpan cookware with warm, soapy water. Scanpan Professional wipes clean with a sponge. Scanpan Professional is dishwasher safe. Scanpan recommends using extra care if you decide to clean the pans in the dishwasher to prevent damage to plates, glassware, etc.

5. When storing Scanpan cookware and nesting (placing smaller pots inside larger pots) is required due to space limitations, Scanpan recommends placing a paper or cloth towel between the pots and pans to prevent scuff marks.

Almost Bulletproof - Fabulous Cooking Instrument, April 17, 2009

By FotoMeister 'FotoMeister' 5.0 out of 5 stars5.0 out of 5 stars5.0 out of 5 stars5.0 out of 5 stars5.0 out of 5 stars

I've used my Scanpan for a bit over 2 years now - the only piece of Scanpan I own. I cook almost everything in Farberware Classic plain old stainless made in Da Bronx, Noo Yawk. But a cook's just gotta have ONE good nonstick pan. I tried all the cheap stuff, then a Circulon (ever try to keep one really clean?) Then a 'Pots & Pans from Calphalon' teflon/silverstone piece of junk. Chipped and flaked and RUSTED where the teflon left.Then SCANPAN came into my life. This thing is bulletproof - use steel utensils on it, burned he;; out of it one time - no problem. One nick on the top edge in two years caused by beating the bejasus out of a big serving spoon trying to dislodge some thing or other that was stuck to the spoon.Want to give a REAL NONSTICK WEDDING GIFT???? Give the kids a set of this stuff - they'll love you for it. Neighbors daughter got married, wanted Calphalon, gave her Scanpan instead. She and hubby are believers. She got some odd pieces of Calphalon and...

Love this pan!, January 28, 2009

After hearing rave viewers I just had to try out this pan. It lived up to everything I had heard. This in the BEST fry pan! I absolutely love it. It makes cooking a dream. The handle is comfortable, nothing sticks to them and they are easy to clean. The ceramic surface is amazing and doesn't feel rough like other nonstick pans. I feel good knowing that there is no teflon that is flaking into my food. I'm hooked and am now getting rid of all my other pans and switching everything to Scanpan. I cook everything from eggs to meat to pancakes in this pan. Great!!

I'd give it six stars if I could., May 3, 2010

This is the best frying pan I have EVER used. The nonstick coating is perfect, super durable, a thousand times better than any Teflon or other cheap coating. I use this pan for eggs and pancakes, but also for stir-frying vegetables, searing meats, any 'stovetop' dish you can think of will work great in it. I can't say enough good things about this pan -- seriously, if you're only going to own one frying pan, this should be it.

  1. A question not addressed??, May 11, 2014

    By Mark Jacobs 0 stars0 stars0 stars0 stars0 stars

    We recently moved into a home that has no natural gas or propane connections. It had an old electric cooktop which we replaced with a new Induction Cooktop. (BTW: it is true! Induction gives all the advantages of gas and instant responsiveness with none of the smoke, overheating of the kitchen, odor, etc. It is so much better than standard electric that the difference is like night and day! After having an Induction cooktop for several months now, I would not go back to natural gas if it were to become available! Yes, the Induction is that much better!)

    However, induction cooktops only work on pans made out of a ferrous (ie: magnetic) metal. Stainless steel, cast iron, or anything a magnet will stick to is great. Copper, glass, or aluminum are not. The method of heating the pan is the excitement of the metal molecules and the aluminum pans do not have the right molecular structure to respond to the induction field, neither does copper or glass, of course.

    So – does anyone know if these ScanPan Pro products are safe/appropriate for use on an induction cooktop?

    Like so many of you I have tried Caphalon, and even the top-of-the-price-heap All-Clad non-stick cookware. They are all junk! I cannot deal with a pan that needs special and continued special treatment. We really cook in our house, preferring to make most meals at home vs eating out or buying prepared foods. Even my super-high priced All-Clad non-stick was breaking down in a matter of weeks – and we did not use metal utensils on it. But we did occasionally eschew hand-washing it and put it in our Miele Dishwasher. The result is the entire non-stick surface is breaking down and developing spots where food now sticks, and others where it does not. Also, the smaller All-Clad pan has started to peel a clear coating (looks like plastic) from around the edges of the pan! Totally unsatisfactory in real world use and All-Clad has 1000 and 1 ways to avoid warranty cover on their non-stick products. In fact I was an All-Clad die-hard fan UNTIL my experience with their lousy customer service and mediocre non-stick pans. Now I will never spend the excessive amounts of cash for another All-Clad product. There are other cookware brands that are just as good and durable for 1/2 their outrageous prices, as I have sadly learned far too late in life! My regular stainless exterior/interior All-Clad of course will probably outlast me and the heirs can fight over it! But as for their All-Clad non-stick – do not bother even if it is free! (if you get it as a gift, exchange it for something else that will last! I can assure you that All-Clad non-stick will not do so!)

    I am hoping that SCAN PAN Pro has enough Stainless steel in the base to allow the induction cooktops to work. Anyone know the answer? And forgive my diatribe about All-Clad. Although every word of it is fact! I am still angry about being refused warranty coverage without sending the pan and a check for $75 dollars in first, at my expense for packing and postage of course, and then allowing All-Clad to decide whether the problem is theirs or was consumer caused. Funny but out of maybe 1/2 dozen friends who have gone this warranty claim route with All-Clad, not one of them has ever had an admission from All-Clad that the problems were a manufacturing defect. Draw your own conclusions. I have drawn mine, obviously. Either way they keep the $75 for their “evaluation”!! What a miserable way to treat customers who have paid very high prices for supposedly the best quality cookware money could buy!

  2. Not for Induction cooking, December 1, 2014

    By Mark Issacs 3 stars3 stars3 stars3 stars3 stars

    We replaced our electric cooktop when we moved into this house with an Induction cooktop. Love induction. It’s as controllable as gas, instantly responsive, and the entire kitchen doesn’t heat up with multiple burners running. The energy goes into the pan and the food, not up to the ceiling. In fact it’s rated to be about 895-98 % energy efficient as compared to gas in the 70’s and regular electric in the 50’s! HOWEVER, induction stoves require pans that a magnet will stick to in order to be able to use the magnetic field the hob creates to make heat in the pans metal structure. And sadly, cast aluminum – no matter how well made or well designed, is not a ferrous metal and therefore cannot be used on an induction cooktop. The SECOND this type of non-stick coating is made available on a stainless steel cookware of decent quality, I will be there check in hand. In the meantime, I took the pan up to our cabin and there we have a propane powered stove and the pans work as wonderfully as stated. But if there is a manufacturer of this amazing cookware reading this little tome – PLEASE start putting your magical coating on Stainless or some other magnetic (ferrous) cookware and you’ll expand your market to those of us who have discovered and embraced induction cooking as the best thing since ice cream!
