Mauviel Launches M'Stone2 Cookware
Posted on August 11, 2011 by
NEW CASTLE, Del.-Mauviel has launched a new ceramic-coated, anodized aluminum cookware line called M'Stone2, which is manufactured in the same Normandy, France-area factory as its other cookware lines.
This is the first time that Mauviel has offered either ceramic-coated or anodized aluminum cookware in the U.S.
The cookware uses a gray anthracite ceramic non-stick coating that is environmentally friendly and scratch- and abrasion-resistant, and also cleans up easily. And due to the 3-to-4 millimeter thick anodized aluminum, the cookware heats up quickly and gives uniform heat distribution throughout the entire body of the pans. The integrated induction bottom allows the collection to be used on gas, electric, halogen and induction cooktops, and the pans are broiler- and dishwasher-safe. The cast stainless steel, stay-cool ergonomic handles include an engraving of Mauviel 1830, which is the year the company was founded by Ernest Mauviel. Two types of lids are available: a polished stainless steel lid or a contemporary glass lid.
"M'Stone2, although modern in design and material, is manufactured with the traditional authenticity and quality as all of the cookware that has been manufactured here for generations," said Valerie Mauviel Gilbert, president of the company and a sixth-generation descendant.
"Every kitchen needs to be stocked with some nonstick cookware, especially a fry pan and a saute for preparing foods such as omelets," said Tara Steffen, marketing manager for Mauviel USA. "These ceramic coated pans offer a worry free, nonstick option for the health conscious consumer so he or she can put nonstick back into his or her cookware collection."
The M'Stone2 collection is comprised of 15 items ranging from fry pans to stockpots. A five-piece, promotional set, which includes a 1.9-quart saucepan, a 3.2-quart saute pan, a 9.5-inch fry pan and two lids, will retail for $400 and comes in a wood crate.
