Our favourite non-stick fry pans and maybe yours as well, are the Swiss Diamond brand.
Swiss Diamond® cookware features a patented nonstick cooking surface reinforced with real diamond crystals. This is the reason for the effortless food preparation and easy clean-up. If treated properly, the surface is extremely long-lasting - it will not peel, crack or blister. Swiss Diamond products are completely free of potentially-harmful PFOA chemicals (certified by the Danish Testing Institute). Now that is a good feeling.
