Designed by Richard Sapper, the pot of La Cintura di Orione series was developed with the advice of starred chef Gualtiero Marchesi. Cylindrical, it is made in multiply (steel, aluminum, steel), which guarantees an optimum thermal distribution throughout the pot's surface and also allows it to be used on induction heat sources. It is ideal for boiling, simmering or steaming.
La Cintura di Orione series, designed by Richard Sapper, is made for those in search of high-quality culinary performance, even while at home. The name of this exclusive collection, La Cintura di Orione, derives from the three stars found at the center of the Orion constellation. A formal symbol of gourmet excellence, the three stars point out also the high performance of the series developed by consulting starred chefs. The multiply version (exterior in steel AISI 430 magnetic + highly thick aluminum + interior in stainless steel 18/10) facilitates a versatile use thanks to the excellent heat conductivity.VIEW THE COMPLETE RANGE
