of cooking are done better on the Hard Anodised surface and other
types of cooking are done better on the Nonstick surface. Please see

| If you want to cook with less or no oil or butter,
Futura Nonstick Cookware is the cookware to use. Foods which tend
to stick to the pan while cooking are best cooked in Futura Nonstick.
Also, clean-up is so easy! Futura Nonstick Cookware will give you
great-tasting, healthful food, cooked easily and economically. If
you are new to cooking, you will find the Futura instruction manuals
and recipes invaluable. Even if you are an expert cook, you will learn
new ways to get the best out of your Futura Nonstick Cookware.
The cooking surface of Futura Nonstick Cookware is made with a unique patented process by which high quality nonstick coating (made in Germany) is locked firmly into the tough Hard Anodised surface underneath. This means that Futura Nonstick, properly used, will last longer than ordinary nonstick.
The bottom and outer sides of Futura Nonstick Cookware are Hard Anodised to give you a surface that is thermal-efficient, will not tarnish, pit or corrode and will stay looking new for years.
A wooden spatula is provided with each piece of Futura Nonstick Cookware.

| For traditional cooking with normal quantities of
oil or butter, Futura Hard Anodised Cookware presents the ideal cooking
surface. Foods that need to be crisp or browned will cook fast and
well. Cooking that uses sufficient water or other cooking liquids
will also do well in Futura Hard Anodised Cookware.
Hard anodising was first developed by Russian scientists to produce a metal surface tough enough for space travel. The same technology is now used by Futura to make its Hard Anodised cookware. Through a process of electrolysis at sub-zero temperature using a high intensity electric current, a 60 micron thick layer of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) is formed molecule by molecule as an integral part of the metal. This process produces a surface harder than steel with wonderful properties for cooking.
The Hard Anodised surface is non-toxic, non-staining and non-reactive with foods. It is thermal-efficient, heats fast and evenly and is not spoiled by high heat. It is tough and durable, will not tarnish or corrode and will stay looking new for years. Metal ladles can be used. Under the terms of a written guarantee included in each carton, Futura Hard Anodised Cookware is guaranteed for five years.
