"These no-nonsense Ballarini professional skillets, available from Italy…are worth adding to the kitchen arsenal." –Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

If you’ve peeked into a restaurant kitchen you know how intense and fiery (literally) it can get in there! The fry pans crowding the cooktop are in constant motion—shaking, tossing, bouncing to a new heat source, and pouring. Ballarini Professionale Nonstick Fry Pans are made to withstand that kind of workout—and now you can have one in your very own kitchen!

Ballarini hails from Italy and they’ve been making pots and pans since 1889. Their kitchenware is still made in Italy today, and these industrial-strength and industrial-chic fry pans have the skills it takes to be the best. Their features include:

  • 4mm thick, cold-forged construction, which means excellent heat distribution and fewer of those inconsistent hot spots (and superior flat-base stability);
  • An easy-to clean brushed aluminum exterior;
  • A hollow-tube handle that helps it stay cool—and rivets that reinforce the handle strength;
  • Compatibility with most cook tops (except induction);
  • Oven safe up to 500°F and dishwasher safe, too;
  • Professional-grade PFOA-free nonstick designed with intense use in mind (aka these pans can take a beating and they’re metal utensil safe);
  • Reinforced with ceramic particles for extreme durability.

Don your best apron, head to the kitchen with your Ballarini, and feel like the next Anthony Bourdain, Jacques Pepin, Gabrielle Hamilton, or Dominique Crenn.
