This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in November of 2018. When considering nonstick cookware, environmentally friendly doesn't often come to mind. But Scanpan, a Danish company, is committed to creating easy-to-clean pots and pans that will not release toxic chemicals, even when heated at high temperatures or when metal utensils are used. Our selection of the company's sets will help you find the collection that fits your family's needs and budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

2. Pro IQ 9-Piece

3. Maitre'D Copper

Editor's Notes

September 11, 2020:

For this update we decided to include the Maitre'D Copper sauce serving set even though it doesn't feature the brand's signature non-stick surface. The mini pots and slate serving board make the Maitre'D a unique addition to their offerings, especially as cooks increasingly value the appearance of their pots and pans as much as their performance.

When it comes to performance, all the Scanpan lines outside of the Maitre'D offer their patented Stratanium non-stick surface that is PFOA-free, and safe for use with metal utensils.

Where the lines differ is mostly in their exterior finishings, the handles and the lids. The CTX 5-Ply and the Hapt IQ Commercial offer the most significant difference in cooking quality and appearance, as the exterior layer of stainless steel is not just decorative, but also serves to improve the heat distribution.

Investigated the qualities that make each of the Scanpan's collections distinctive from one another so that buyers could choose between some lines that appear almost identical at first glance.

4. Pro IQ Fry Pan

5. Hapt IQ Commercial
