Whether you are an amateur cook or an expert chef – everyone with a dedication for cooking should use good tools. Combining functionality and innovative designs, RÖSLE products stand for excellent quality and regularly receive international awards. By offering a great variety of products with different seals and in different sizes, customers have the chance to compile pots and pans according to their personal needs. At this year’s trade fair Ambiente, RÖSLE presented 16 new pan models in addition to the brand’s ‘Silence’ cookware set. This latest range of frying pans, serving pans, and stewing pans is made of innovative materials and is easier to handle. Designed with a modern Teflon Radiance sealing, RÖSLE pans are particularly heat resistant: the middle sealing layer contains stain-
less steel particles, which evenly distribute the heat. The rest of the ‘Silence’ cookware set offers various benefits as well: all of the set’s saucepots and cooking pots are equipped with lids that are not only made of shatterproof glass, they also have all-around silicone. Therefore, there will be no clattering. Plus, flavouring cannot leak from the pots due to the tight sealing. Another popular item of the RÖSLE assortment is a cone-shaped tajine, cookware traditionally used in North Africa. Whereas usual tajines are made out of pottery, the company’s model is designed in stainless steel which is easier to clean. It also does not have to be soaked in water before cooking. www.roesle.de
