Scanpan Non-Stick Series Comparison Chart

As you can see, ALL Scanpan Non-Stick ranges are made in Denmark with 100% recycled materials and offer a 10-year guarantee. They also all feature a PFOA-free non-stick coating and are suitable in the oven up to 260°C and allow the use of metal utensils.

* The ranges that show Ceramic Titanium/Stratanium for their non-stick coating will eventually undergo a change. At present at the time of writing, they feature the Scanpan exclusive ceramic-titanium coating but are swapping to an improved Stratanium coating. This new coating provides 30% improved non-stick effect, hardness and product life. (30% isn’t an overly high number, but, when you take into account how effective and world-leading SCANPAN non-stick previously was…IT’S MASSIVE!) Read about the Stratanium non-stick coating here.
