Gourmet cookware for serious chefs and home cooks

Meyer Corporation is the world's third largest manufacturer of gourmet cookware. Two of Meyer’s cookware lines are very popular with both serious chefs and home cooks who take their cooking seriously. 

The AnolonŽ Professional line is for consumers who wants the commercial features and quality of cookware with a hard anodized body, heavy weight riveted metal handles, a nonstick surface, and a low silhouette glass lid. The extra weight of the Analon series improves heat distribution, substantially reducing the occurrence of "hot spots" and maximizing food release durability.

The CirculonŽ Classic line is designed to accommodate the needs of everyday cooking in busy households. Heat resistant plastic handles are oven safe to 350 F. An interesting addition to this line are the unique straining pans. The 5-quart Straining Colander Stockpot lid has two hole sizes for straining small or large foods. The 9-inch Straining Saute Pan and the 2.5-quart Straining Windsor Pan have different size pour spouts on either side of the pan.
