CARSON, CA— As Clipper Corp. continues to invest in its Viking line of cookware, the company is tapping into design trends for its latest cookware release. The new line utilizes the combination of black and copper for a mixed-materials look, but has also been built for performance, the company said.
The new Viking cookware collection is 3-ply, said the company. The exterior is aluminum and features an aluminum core to expedite heating and ensure perfectly even heat distribution, while the interior is non-reactive, surgical grade stainless steel. This was developed, said Clipper, to not affect the flavor of food and ensures easy cleanup, although the cookware is dishwasher safe as well. An additional inner layer of aluminum alloy also contributes to the efficiency of the cookware.
The new Viking line of cookware also enjoys an embedded induction plate at the bottom of each pan which increases the versatility of the cookware, allowing home chefs to use the pieces on gas, electric, ceramic or induction cooktops. The cookware is also oven safe up to 450°F, the company said.
Other features of the line include vented glass lids to help to prevent boil-overs and make it easy to see the progress of the meal; flared rims ensure drip free pouring; integrated measuring markings on the inside of the pans require less use of measuring cups; and full-cast stainless steel handles are securely attached with stainless steel rivets and are designed to stay cool.
Additionally, the company said, the Viking ergonomically designed handles are PVD coated with an elegant copper look providing the perfect accent to the matte black exterior.
The line will be available beginning in September. Currently, the black and copper cookware collection will be available at specialty and independent retailers as well as online via Wayfair and Amazon. It will be available as an 11-piece set only and will retail for $699.99.
