FRANKFURT, Germany-French company Pillivuyt, after years of product development, has come out with a line of flame-proof porcelain that can also be used on induction cooktops, as well as in the microwave.

The white, satin-finished collection, called Ulysses, was introduced at the Ambiente fair here earlier this week and will also be featured at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago next week. The induction items include two deep casseroles and two shallower braising pans; these employ a patented technology in which a silver-based transfer is applied to the flame-proof casseroles. For non-induction uses, the casseroles also come in a flame-proof version and the line is rounded out with several unique shapes that can also be put on direct heat sources such as gas and electric burners.
