Made in Denmark, the CTX non-stick surface PFOA free, safe for your food and your family. It features a 5-ply hybrid technology — a fusion of layers of stainless steel and aluminum construction, along with a patented ceramic titanium surface. The exterior is brushed stainless steel, while the interior features ceramic titanium nonstick surface.
I was fortunate to be able to try a piece of new non-stick cookware line: the Scanpan CTX 8 inch fry pan. It was the morning after a big snowstorm here in Atlanta (yes it snowed!) and my husband and I decided to make a delicious breakfast for our kids, consisting of pancakes, eggs, and turkey bacon. Cooking eggs on this nonstick pan was a breeze. The eggs did not stick at all to the surface, they were easy to mix and scramble, and I used my All-Clad spatula to do the job. According to Scanpan, you can use any type of utensil, including metal utensils, on the surface safely. And my All-Clad tools didn’t scratch the surface. The stainless ergonomic handle made the pan easy for me to lift and move around and the eggs cooked evenly and fluffy. Best part was clean up: although the new CTX line is dishwasher safe, with a drop of dish wash liquid and soft sponge, the pan was clean in an instant. No sticky eggs to worry about!
It was such a pleasure to use this non-stick pan and it’s destined to become the workhorse in my kitchen.
But the big difference between Scanpan CTX vs other Scanpan styles is that it is magnetized so it can be used on induction cooking surfaces, including portable induction burners. Induction cooking uses magnetism to heat food which not only heats food more quickly, is more energy efficient than gas and electric burners.
