Rave Reviews on Swiss Diamond

Posting date: 31st January 2013 13:20

Q Re your rave reviews of Swiss Diamond, have you seen this article ? it suggests that the marketing is fraudulent and misleading and I don't know if the company has ever commented publicly about that. Thought you should know.

A I asked Swiss Diamond for a formal response to the above email from a customer as whilst I already knew about the article and had my own views, I thought it better to have the formal response. Here it is:

"Thank you so much for your interest in Swiss Diamond cookware. I wanted to respond to your concern about the Natural News article. Unfortunately, people can put anything out on the Internet, whether it is true or not!

SAFE NON-STICK COOKWARE

As you can see, the article is quite old - it was published in 2006. This was at the height of consumer concern over the safety of nonstick coatings, after DuPont Teflon® came under investigation. After further review, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) discovered that it was a chemical used in the production of Teflon®, not the Teflon® itself, that was dangerous. That chemical was PFOA. As you can see from our website, our production process is completely free of PFOA from start to finish: Swiss Diamond Coating info Our coating has been tested by the Danish Testing Institute and certified as completely free of PFOA.

Unlike many nonstick cookware manufacturers who purchase their nonstick coating from DuPont or other sources, we make our own custom nonstick coating at our factory in Switzerland. All the components are subject to strict European health and safety regulations. In addition, because diamonds are naturally nonstick, unlike titanium or other metals commonly used to strengthen nonstick coatings, Swiss Diamond is able to use lower quantities of nonstick components.

VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE

After this article was published, we removed Virtually Indestructible from our website and literature. The phrase was actually intended to indicate that the pans will never warp, even if taken directly off the stove and placed under cold running water. Because they are made of cast aluminum (rather than spun or stamped aluminum), they will never change shape.

Of course our coating, like all nonstick coatings, is susceptible to intentional damage with a sharp object, like a fork. Our Use & Care guide instructs users that any utensil may be used with care, but sharp edges should be avoided.

We were actually ranked #1 by Consumer Reports in the Nonstick Cookware category in 2012, and called the “Rolls-Royce of Nonstick Fry Pans” by the Wall Street Journal in March 2012. These independent endorsements by reputable news sources should assure you that we are not, in fact, attempting to defraud consumers.

In short:
Our cookware is free of potentially harmful PFOA
Our cookware was named Best Nonstick Cookware 2012 by Consumer Reports, so you won’t find a better product out there
Our cookware, like any other product, can be damaged if you try to do so

We sincerely appreciate your interest. I hope this explanation helped. I look forward to hearing from you if you have additional questions.
