Review of Swiss Diamond Cookware

Posting date: 12th November 2012 10:37

A customer of ours had been put off Swiss Diamond cookware by an article on the web which has been around for a number of years. This is the article:

"Consumer fraud alert: Swiss Diamond non-stick cookware made with same chemical as Teflon"

Here is my response:

"Whilst I have some sympathy with the article in that it is a bit slippery to avoid the Teflon question by simply saying this is a trade mark, I think that most of the article is far too harsh.

Yes, Swiss Diamond, like ALL non stick pans has PTFE in it. The only way you avoid this is by having a ceramic non stick pan like Green pan. Personally, I think that the ceramic non stick does not work as well, and also stops working quite quickly. But if you buy a cheap ceramic pan and expect it have to replace it frequently, then this is a way to avoid PTFE altogether.

The PTFE content in pans like Swiss Diamond, Scanpan, SKK, Gastrolux etc etc, is passed as food safe in Europe and USA. The known danger with this substance is when it is very strongly over heated. Here is an article on this on our website:

No Stick Cookware Guide

Of course, you can argue that "you never know" and problems could come out in time in relation to PTFE. This has happened with other manmade substances, afterall, that have been passed as safe. Everyone makes their own choice as to what risk they want to take!

Otherwise, I think Swiss Diamond pans are very good. You really can use them with metal utensils and the diamond infused non stick surface even if it gets scratched, will still work.
