HexClad Pan

Can a surface be engineered for cooking?

This HexClad Hybrid pan has a uniquely textured, multi-material surface. Its distinctive, hexagon pattern is evident in this dataset.

This is another example of a surface that’s intended to be slippery (non-stick), yet it has a significant roughness with a pattern of peaks that are around 40 µm  high.

How does this surface compare to other popular cooking surfaces? See for yourself by comparing this surface to a Ninja non-stick pan or a Lodge cast iron pan – which are also available in this library.
