The special feature of cast ware is that it is made by pouring molten metal into a mold.  In this way products can be cast in one piece.  UNILLOY forms one smooth, beautiful, jointless curve from pot to handle.  This integrated design not only provides excellent durability, but means that the pot is not subject to stress during washing up.  Its two colors, navy and white, suit any interior.

Another of UNILLOY’s attractions is its functional design that pays great attention to detail.  For example, the flowing line of the downward-sloping handle is based on ergonomics.

Lid system makes flavors circulate

Under the lid there are four dimples which ripple out from the center. When the moisture in the ingredients heats up, it rises as steam. This steam is a kind of soup which concentrates flavor and scent. By making the steam which collects underneath the lid fall evenly as water droplets into the pot, these four dimples return rich nutrients to the food. The lid acts as a flavor circulation system.
