Swiss Diamond Nonstick Cookware, Made in Switzerland

Swiss Diamond Nonstick Cookware, Made in Switzerland

Swiss Diamond non-stick cookware is amazing. These beautifully made pots and pans are equipped with a revolutionary coating made with real diamond crystals for a long-lasting non-stick surface. Swiss Diamond is made in Sierre, Switzerland, under strict European heath and safety regulations.

Why Diamonds?

  1. Diamonds are durable – As the hardest material known to mankind; diamonds give the coating additional strength and longevity.
  2. Diamonds are a better heat conductor than metal – Four times more conductive than copper, diamonds help distribute heat evenly across the surface of the pan. Diamonds also allow the pan to brown food like stainless steel, creating a “fond” that can be used for gravy – or easily washed away with warm soapy water.
  3. Diamonds are naturally nonstick – One of the most valuable properties of diamonds is that they have intrinsic nonstick properties, unlike titanium reinforcement. This gives the coating outstanding nonstick release properties.

Each piece of cookware receives three layers of nonstick coating, ensuring longevity and helping it resist damage. Chefs worldwide agree, "Diamonds are a chef’s best friend!"

Knife Skills

Knife Skills: What makes a bread knife a bread knife?

Bread knives are usually between 6 and 10 inches long. They have serrated teeth to make quick and clean work of slicing bread without squishing. The bread knife is the only knife with which you use a sawing action.


Creamy Mushrooms

Creamy Mushrooms


  • 500g wild mushrooms (ie. chanterelle, button & portobello)
  • 3 sprigs of parsley
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 small baguette
  • 50g clarified butter
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 200g cream
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • Ground salt and pepper

  1. First clean and scrub the mushrooms. Then cut them into halves, quarters or slice them depending on their size.
  2. Rinse the parsley under running water and shake dry. Remove the leaves and chop finely.
  3. Peel and finely chop the onions. Cut the baguette at an angle into slices and brown them in the Staub fry pan for 2-3 minutes on both sides. Put to one side.
  4. Heat the clarified butter in a fry pan and gently fry the diced onions until soft and translucent in colour. Add the mushrooms, fry briefly and then deglaze with lemon juice.
  5. Pour in the cream and stock and simmer on a medium heat for 1-2 minutes without a lid.
  6. Season the mushroom ragout with salt and pepper. Mix the corn starch with a little cold water, stir into the mushrooms and let the ragout come to a boil. Stir in the parsley.
  7. Serve the creamy wild mushrooms in the Staub mini cocottes together with the toasted bread.
