Beyond its multi-ply, vapor seal advantages, Vita Craft cookware is designed with the user in mind.
Self-storing covers: The lids, when inverted, nest perfectly in the pan for easy storage. No searching for the right lid – it's with the pan.
Burn-safe knobs and finger guards: The knob rests on a finger guard that prevents your fingers from touching the hot lid. Both the knob and guard are made of heat resistant materials – oven safe to 400˚ (on "bake"). The knob also has a brass fitting, not plastic, so it does not expand and strip. The handles and knobs are also dishwasher safe.
Extra safe handle: The long handle is secured to the pan with a hidden, stainless steel bolt. This bolt screws into a fitting, which is welded to the outside of the pan. This fitting is enclosed in a stainless steel heat guard that helps dissipate heat before it reaches the handle where it is grasped. The heat guard fits together with the main handle piece forming a T-lock that prevents the handle from swiveling or turning.
"Comfort fit" grip: The long handle is designed with a special grip that allows it to fit comfortably in your hand and makes it easy to hold.
No rivets or rolled edges: Grease and food particles can be trapped around rivets and rolled edges, making them difficult to clean.
Warp resistant bottom: The bottom of the pan is designed to assure the utensil hugs the burner for maximum heating efficiency. This feature makes Vita Craft cookware practical for all types of ranges, including smooth glass top surface ranges.
