Seeking more practical everyday uses for their medium, the people at San Lorenzo have conducted years of careful research into the advantages of cooking with silver, beginning in the 1990s. Through this research they discovered that, in its purest form, it is both bactericidal and fungicidal. And because it conducts heat more efficiently than other metals, silver utensils cook food quickly and at low temperatures, allowing nutrients to be better preserved.

Based on these findings, designer Tobia Scarpa created the Cooking With Pure Silver collection was created in 1999. Now, San Lorenzo has gone on to update the line, calling it PAN 999. The refined versions are encased in pure iron, resulting in a hardwearing luxurious look we love.
