Scanpan CSX 5-Ply Cookware Made from 100% Recycled Materials

Seattle-based Sur La Table, the premier retailer for creative cooking and artful entertaining, introduces its new collection of Scanpan CSX cookware, developed with the maker of the world’s best nonstick. Scanpan, the world’s leading producer of premium cookware, has been producing high-quality products in Denmark for more than five decades. Traditional techniques of craftsmanship are used to develop, design and manufacture functional and timeless cookware and accessories for the modern kitchen.

Sur La Table’s buyers travelled to Denmark to work with its partners at Scanpan to create something truly unique and exclusive. Everyone loves cooking with nonstick—it makes cooking easier and cleanup is a breeze. And Scanpan is known around the world as the finest nonstick cookware money can buy. But as cooks we know there are some tasks that are far better tackled with stainless clad cookware. It’s unsurpassed in caramelizing and browning, it withstands high heat including oven temps up to 550ºF, and it reacts quickly to heat changes for managing even the most delicate sauces. These features have made clad cookware almost universally the choice of the finest chefs and restaurants in the world.

Scanpan is one of two family-owned and cookware manufacturers still in existence (the other is Demeyere, also carried by Sur La Table). Exclusively available at Sur La Table stores nationwide and online at, Scanpan CSX is built for professional performance. Eco-friendly Scanpan CSX is constructed from 100% recycled materials. Its 18/10 stainless steel interiors let you sauté, fry, caramelize, sear with high heat and prepare perfect sauces. Safe for oven up to 550˚F and dishwasher.

CSX stands for “Clad Stainless Extreme” and Sur La Table and Scanpan designed this line to be the best quality stainless cookware in this price range. Pick up a CSX skillet and feel the weight of 5-ply clad—that weight translates into even cooking with absolutely no hot spots, fast heat conduction and stability on the cooktop. Feel the handle, how comfortable it is to grip, how it doesn’t dig into your hands, and how even when the pan is filled it’s easy to pick up. Look at the attention to detail—this cookware includes features no one else does like the fully encapsulated stainless rim, volume markers in the saucepans, and the signature Scanpan glass and stainless lid. Made in Denmark and guaranteed to last a lifetime. The only place in America you can find this cookware is Sur La Table.
