Buying Your First Scanpan | Matchbox

When you choose your first Scanpan, we want you to choose with confidence — and whether it's a cookware set or an Impact frypan you decide, we want you to bring it home with confidence too!

So if you're ready to be a master home chef in the kitchen using this premium quality cookware, here is all you need to know about the well-loved Scanpan cookware.


What is Scanpan made of?

Scanpan cookware is made of 100% recycled cast aluminium, which is the material behind quick & even heat distribution.

One of their newest ranges, Scanpan Classic Induction, is made of exclusive Stratanium nonstick coating. What is Stratanium coating? Resulted from 10 years of research & development by Scanpan, Stratanium is a multilayer coating that offers a 30% improved non-stick effect – improved in food release, hardness, and long-lastingness or durability. And don't worry — all Scanpan non stick pots and pans are PFOA free.

Similarly, the Scanpan Impact pairs aluminium with 18/10 stainless steel walls and a stainless steel protector around its base, producing highly durable cookware (some with tempered glass lids).

Is Scanpan dishwasher safe?

Short answer is yes, they are. In fact, they are built to withstand high heat. However, they already give such effective food release that you might not need to make the dishwasher your go-to. Especially because the Classic Induction doesn't come with rivets or screws, dedicated to making clean up easier.

For cookware care, we generally recommend you hand wash with warm soapy water instead!


Where is Scanpan made?

Scanpan was one of the first cookware manufacturers to produce environmentally friendly, high-quality cookware to the market. The brand started as (and still is) a Danish family-owned business based in Ryomgård, Denmark.

The company's success led to exporting to over 45 countries worldwide such as the USA, including extending their manufacturing of Scanpan products. All of Scanpan's non-stick cookware was made in Denmark, while Scanpan's stainless steel cookware, such as the Impact, are made in China under Danish regulations.

How to Clean Scanpan Cookware

Our top tips for cleaning Scanpan cookware is the same across all our premium cookware brands: Hand washing.

Don't underestimate what hot soapy water can do — it really does help release burnt on foods from most steel or non stick pans and pots.

Its non-scratch and odour-free properties is designed to help you keep everything from cookware, utensils, to ceramic cooktops in tip top shape!
