After being out of the U.S. market, Lagostina is making its way back into the hands of American consumers with a comprehensive relaunch. Part of the Groupe SEB portfolio, Lagostina is launching an array of new cookware, from sets to individual pieces, at the International Home + Housewares Show, here.
“Initially a purveyor of premium stainless steel cookware, Lagostina has grown to become a global leader of innovative, stylish, high performance cookware across multiple fabrications,” said Michele Lupton, marketing communications director for Groupe SEB North America. “The brand’s reputation for innovation and high-quality has made it a household name in more than 80 countries. With such worldwide success, now seems to be a logical time to relaunch Lagostina in the U.S. market,” she added.
The brand will be introducing two new cookware sets as well as a line of products that were designed to create specialty Italian dishes.
Lagostina’s Bianca cookware set is made from the company’s Meteorite ceramic non-stick material, which is designed to withstand high heat as well as make for a quick release. With a five-ply induction bonded base, the collection is designed to be dishwasher safe as well as scratch and stain resistant.
The Axia tri-ply stainless steel cookware set features the company’s signature polished look on the outside and a satin finish on the 18/10 stainless steel interior. The line’s three-layer construction combines stainless steel inside and out with a thick heat-radiating aluminum core for optimal heat distribution, according to the company.
The Heritage Range, also new from Lagostina, is a collection of cookware dedicated to classic Italian dishes. Handcrafted in Italy, The collection features a 4-quart Risottiera, 5-quart minestrone and polenta pot, a 6-quart Pastaiola pot and an 11-inch Accademia grill pan.
In addition, this year the company will also introduce the Martellata Stainless and Martellata Copper lines, hammered steel and copper tri-ply cookware.
