Redefining Cookware

By Hestan, Special for  USDR

Hestan, the innovative culinary brand redefining its category, launched NanoBond cookware, a line of bonded stainless steel cookware uniquely engineered to last a lifetime. Hestan, widely known for high-end commercial kitchen equipment and premium residential outdoor grills, is applying their cutting edge technology and innovative thinking to their first consumer cookware line. NanoBond promises to raise the bar among cookware brands and push the industry towards the  future.

Since its introduction to the kitchen over 100 years ago, there’s been no significant innovation to stainless steel cookware – often known for tarnishing when exposed to high heat and easily scratching. For culinary professionals and enthusiasts alike, NanoBond brings the most advanced technology to the kitchen, delivering a full line of cookware that introduces modern science to timeless culinary craftsmanship with molecular titanium. NanoBond offers incredible resilience, lasting beauty and the cleanability to maintain its brilliance for  generations.

NanoBond leverages a patented titanium based nano-technology that creates thousands of superdense nano layers of titanium alloys bonded to stainless steel. This enables the cookware surface to be four times harder than typical stainless steel. The result is a chemical free, extremely durable cookware that’s resistant to staining, scratching, salt pitting and provides superior performance. Thanks to a pure aluminum core, it is also 35 percent more conductive than other aluminum clad  cookware.

“As visionary culinary professionals, we examined the industry and worked with the most revered chefs, engineers and scientists to uncover what was missing in culinary cookware,” said Stanley Cheng, Founder/Proprietor of Hestan. “By blending innovative technology with culinary expertise we were able to create a cookware line unlike anything the industry has ever  seen.”

Beginning tomorrow, NanoBond will be available for purchase exclusively at Williams Sonoma and

After much anticipation, we are thrilled to bring it to market and share it with our  customers.”
