LAVA enamel cast iron pots and pans are manufactured in LAVA facilities in Eskişehir through 40 years of experience and knowledge and the most advanced casting and enamelling technology in Turkey and in the region. Each pot and pan is controlled manually for a few times during production to ensure full compliance with quality standards. They are tested in advanced LAVA laboratories for tens of times.

First of all, a good cast iron pot and pan should be quite heavy. They should have thick base. As the cast m iron that absorbs more heat is thick, they are designed in the construction that reaches equal cooking degree from all points.
No cookware can produce foods on the oven with as excellent taste as LAVA enamel cast iron pots, pans and their derivatives. LAVA enamel pots and pans with thick base are made of cast-iron which is a material with low specific heat. LAVA cast-iron pots and pans can reach equal cooking degree from all points as they can overheat considerably much and they are thick.
The important point for cooking is overheating degree of pot and pan. Cast iron is unique in this regard Meat grilled at barbecue is more delicious than the meat cooked at any teflon pan. Likewise, meat grilled at LAVA enamel cast iron grill pan is as delicious as the barbecue. It may even be very difficult to notice the difference.
Meat cooked at LAVA enamel cast iron pans never sticks to the pan. There are two reasons for this. First, high heat on the surface of pan seals the surface of meat. This retains the taste, water and all nutritional values of the food sealed. (It forms a dry and hard layer in a short period of time or briefly, let’s say it browns). So, while the meat first sticks, it looses within a couple of minutes –after the humidity on its surface is removed. Secondly, only some part of the meat comes into contact with the pan thanks to the grill drains on surface ensuring that it is easy to separate meat from pan and it forms nice burning marks on meat.
LAVA enamel cast iron pots and pans can be used for all recipes such as soups, roasts, grills, rice, casseroles and desserts, cakes and baked breads. Cast iron is suitable for all kinds of cooking techniques. As the heat will equally spread to the whole surface, it provides perfect cooking for meals that require cooking at medium heat for a long time such as stew, meals with olive oil etc. Likewise, meats cooked with cast iron give barbecue taste and vegetables have roasted taste.
Steam generated in pot condenses thanks to the special lid design of LAVA and is mixed with food again. When cooking methods are used correctly, it does not only produce wonderful flavors and tastes, but also protects nutritional values in your meal contributing to a healthy diet.
