I just had to share my new love … a Ballarini Portofino Granitium frypan!
To be honest I had been pretty sceptical about these ‘stone’ finished pans that I had seen promoted at homeshows etc., but then I discovered Ballarini which is an Italian company who have been making pans since 1889 and still makes them today in Italy! Having owned one for only a few days I have to say that it has become my latest kitchen love. Everything just slides perfectly around and the caramalisation (browning) process is a breeze! So if you can get your hands on a Ballarini do so!!
