Blue Diamond Cookware Diamond Infused Ceramic Nonstick 28cm Frying Pan Skillet, PFAS-Free, Induction, Dishwasher Safe, Oven Safe, Blue
About this deal
Although the brand’s advertisements claim the pan is dishwasher safe, the care instructions specify that owners should hand-wash the Blue Diamond pan. However some ceramic pans don’t contain Teflon or PTFE. Those pans are indeed better than Teflon. This is because Teflon, though theoretically safe if used correctly, can emit dangerous fumes when overheated.

We reached out to The Cookware Company and the Korean manufacturer of Thermolon coatings to confirm that Blue Diamond’s coating is totally free from fluoropolymers and other fluorinated materials such as PFAS. The brand claims that diamonds conduct heat 4x faster than copper, a material which is seen by many as the highest standard in heat conduction for cookware. Is the claim true?Yes, diamonds are excellent conductors of heat. No, this doesn’t mean your pan will heat 4x faster than the best copper cookware. The oven-rating on this pan is fine, though we struggle to think of a situation where most kitchens would want to use it at such high temperatures. I guess it’s there if you need it.

Withstands about 232°C (450°F), which is almost half the heat resistance of a Blue Diamond, yet more than enough for most uses.This is fine with me because I have a typical gas stove. But if induction-friendly pans are your only choice, skip the product and go for its alternatives that I’ve mentioned below. Blue Diamond Cookware Review

All of that to say, diamond infusion is a fun marketing angle, but with this pan you should not expect to be cooking atop the Hope diamond. Heat DistributionOne disappointing thing about the Blue Diamond pan design is that the handle can get hot when used on high heat, so you’ll need to use oven mitts. Durability The best bet is often enameled cast iron which is similar to ceramic, but certainly Teflon free, and very durable. Some people love the sizzling sound of a hot pan entering cold water. Unfortunately, the pan doesn’t like it quite as much.
