Spotted: Hestan in Bon Appétit
Chris Morocco over at Bon Appetit raves about Hestan NanoBond.
“I break out in hives whenever I hear the word disrupt applied to cooking. I don’t want to hack my dinner, and I don’t want to disrupt my cookware. I just want to cook tasty food like everyone else, using cookware that works. But if someone comes along with a product that is genuinely better, well, I’m all ears.
I hadn’t heard of Hestan when their marketing team dropped by the BA Test Kitchen a couple years ago, but I was intrigued when they presented the NanoBond skillet they had given to chef Corey Lee to use at Benu in San Francisco. The pan they showed me had gone through months of what every piece of professional cookware goes through: abuse. From getting slammed around on cooktops to the rigors of washing night after night, this little skillet had stories to tell. Yet it had few outward signs of anything more than a trip to New York (maybe even first class, judging from the lack of dents). It was clear that this pan was actually disrupting the cookware market. When it came to durability, it was different.”
