Just over a year ago the Cookware Company launched the Blue Diamond non-stick cookware range and it has been promoted widely using television advertisements and social media. The range is infamous for its radiant blue exterior and extra strong, diamond-infused, ceramic interior. The non-stick market is becoming more and more competitive as more options become available and different manufacturers use a variety of coatings to offer superior non-stick options. Blue Diamond does not say what metals are used to construct the pans, instead, they focus on the incredible strength of the non-stick coating. Adding diamonds to the ceramic base makes it tougher, more scratch-resistant and offers better heat distribution. In fact, they claim it is 5 times harder, will last 10 times longer, and offers 4 times more heat distribution.
Lightweight and very easy to use, the Blue Diamond pan has a forged base making it extra strong and warp-resistant. The most outstanding feature is the diamond-infused ceramic non-stick coating. Toxin-free, you are guaranteed not to have to deal with toxic fumes as the pan heats up. The ceramic coating is free of cadmium, lead, PFOA, and PFAS. Suitable for most stovetops, excluding induction, this pan can be used for all stovetop cooking and as well as in the oven. Now you can use just one pan to fry, sear, saute, roast, broil and bake.
Oven and broiler safe up to 850F, this pan is designed to withstand intense heat. Cooking on a low to medium heat when used on the stovetop will retain the quality of the non-stick coating and maximize its lifespan. The diamond-strong coating is designed to withstand the use of metal cooking utensils and is advertised as dishwasher safe. The forged base of this pan is extremely strong and makes it almost impossible to warp and disintegrate.
Even with its strong, forged base, this pan is lightweight and comfortable to work with. The silver handle is also quite comfortable and is designed to stay cool. Many customers, however, have commented that the handle gets very hot on the stove and they needed a mitt to work it.
Blue Diamond is definitely one of the cheaper non-stick options available and this pan was selling at $29.98 at the time of this review. This includes a 90-day money-back guarantee and a limited lifetime warranty.
Although relatively new to the market, this pan has been well received by most customers. They have put the non-stick coating to the test and found that if used according to the care guidelines provided the coating is very durable and the pan is quite strong. The manufacturer advises using the pan on low to medium heat, always using a little oil or butter for best frying results. They also recommend hand washing the pan to lengthen the lifespan of the non-stick coating.
