Ballarini cookware is recognized globally as a top brand for high-end non-stick cookware, produced in a state of the art factory in Italy. The Rialto line of cookware is made of heavy gauge aluminum for long-lasting durability and quick even heating with no hot spots. Enjoy healthy cooking without the use of oils. The Granitium non-stick coating with ceramic and titanium is free of pfoa, nickel and heavy metals. Rialto features a patented thermo point heat indicator on the handle which changes colour. When the temperature of the pan changes, a red marker indicates the pan is ready for cooking and green lets you know when the pan is safe to touch and wash.
