Why Stainless Steel? Attractive, easy to clean and maintain, robust and long lasting. However Stainless Steel is a poor conductor of heat so make sure you choose a range with an encapsulate base and if necessary that is also suitable for Induction. An encapsulated base is where a disc of aluminium (which is a much better heat conductor) is sandwiched between 2 stainless steel discs on the base, the thicker the aluminum disc the more effective the heat conduction.
Why Swift? Swift began manufacturing Cookware in Birmingham between the 2 World Wars and so can now bring over 50 years experience to the table so to speak. Now Swift source Cookware from all over the World to ensure we bring you the best value for money and we are confident that we have a range of Cookware for you.
Why Supreme sg? Supreme sg uses the same bodies as Supreme which is Swifts oldest range of Cookware and has become a timeless classic. The difference between the 2 ranges is all in the handles as Supreme sg enjoys Cast Stainless Steel handles with a Soft Grip Silicone Coating while Supreme has 100% Cast Stainless Steel Handles. The simple body design works exceptionally well with the brushed stainless steel bodies with polished rims, the stainless steel lids and thye silicone/cast stainless steel handles. Quality wise Supreme sg is as you would expect at the top end of the scale with an extra thick encapsulated base and thicker than usual pan bodies. The encapsulated base totals 7mm for an excellently even heat distribution and is of course induction compatible. Other features include folded and crushed edges which gives a fine edge for ease of pouring and internal capacity markings.
Lid wise the Stainless Steel Lids all have steam vents which ensures that pressure doesn't build up thereby reducing boiling over and preventing the lid from being stuck in place due to the creation of a vacuum when the food cools.
The stunning Silicone/Stainless Steel Handles come in 4 sizes to ensure that the balance and comfort of use is right for every pan. While it isn't advised to use the Supreme sg under the Grill they can all be used in the Oven as the Silicone Handles are perfectly safe upto 230 DegC.
Cleaning. Supreme can be cleaned by hand or in the Dishwasher. By hand hot soapy water and a soft abrasive will give the best results. For the uncoated pieces a harder abrasive can be used if necessary although the stainless steel, while not affecting its perfromance, will scratch and mark a little. Hard abrasive should not be used on Non Stick items as the coating will scratch and deteriorate. However as previously stated if you prefer all the pieces are Dishwasher safe.
