The coating process of non-stick pans

Technology and production

Aiming for maximum quality is a key focus of our 100% Made in Italy cookware production: no detail is overlooked and the technologies used are constantly evolving.

Our highly automated plant is among the most advanced ones within the industry, and can produce any type of cookware with non-stick coating. Quality and innovation are accompanied by a careful selection of our raw material suppliers, all of which are European or EU-certified.

All Illa non-stick pots and pan are made of aluminium and shaped to perfection, using cutting-edge presses.

Strict quality controls complete the production cycle, from raw materials to the finished product, ensuring a 100% quality standard compliance for all end products which is reflected by our product return numbers: over the last 25 years, Illa's main client has purchased more than 50 million pieces - with an infinitesimal return rate. Our second-largest client has not returned a single piece in the last 5 years.

For the production of our pots, pans, skillets and saucepans, only aluminium discs are used: aluminium is an excellent heat conductor, lightweight and easy to handle.

Furthermore it can reach higher temperatures in less time, distributing heat evenly over the entire cookware surface, thereby achieving a better cooking performance.

Pressing technology is used for manufacturing. In fact, with the use of pressed aluminium (i.e. aluminium that has not undergone die casting), small inclusions of air within the non-stick coating are prevented - a side effect that can happen to cast aluminium during the heating process and that can affect the cookware's longevity and resistance.

Therefore Illa only produces pressed aluminium cookware. Another quality feature of our company.
