LIGHT THE RINGS
Ghisanativa® smooth hotplates deliver exceptional cooking performance. The nature of the metal and its above-average thickness allow these hotplates to accumulate and retain heat up to 12 times more efficiently than steel, and transfer it to food in the most effective way possible. These hotplates can easily reach temperatures in excess of 450°C, permitting the cooking of chops, fillets, steaks, hamburgers and vegetables in ultra-short times, without excessive juice loss.See all
Ghisanativa® grill plates are designed to fulfil two roles: to create attractive “grill lines” on the surface of meat and veg and to reduce contact between the cooking surface and the food.See all

Once extracted from the mould, cooled, hand finished and carefully inspected, our natural cast iron cookware is re-heated to 900°C in an oxygen-free atmosphere inside a special oven. This process can be traced back thousands of years: it was perfected by the ancient Etruscans some 2800 years ago to create their completely black bucchero ceramics.
Cast iron + Magnetite
Applied to the production of cast iron, re-heating in a reducing atmosphere creates a tough layer of magnetite on the surface of the metal, permanently protecting every item of GHISANATIVA™ cookware against rust.
Cast iron + Magnetite + Extra virgin olive oil
At this point, a film of extra virgin olive oil is applied by hand. The products are then put back in an oven and once again subjected to intense heat, replicating a technique adopted by Roman legionaries from the 4th century B.C. onwards to toughen swords and prevent corrosion. At 400°C, the harmful compounds (acrolein, formaldehyde etc.) liberated when oil exceeds its smoke point evaporate and disperse, leaving the residual components of the oil to polymerise with the metal. This creates a black cooking surface that is satin-smooth to the touch, scratch-proof with all common kitchen tools and extremely resistant to high temperatures and common detergents. More importantly, this surface has a natural non-stick finish that remains effective for years of normal use in the kitchen and is enhanced by even the smallest quantities of oil or edible fat.
For over 50 years Foundry Finco, realities of excellence in the field, retains the value of Made in Italy. It invests in continuous studies, projects and research in keeping alive and enhance the quality of cast iron suitable for cooking healthy and natural.Find out more
