Viking professional cookware products are manufactured with exclusive multi-ply construction. Multi-Ply construction is a specially designed combination of stainless steel and aluminum alloys for lifetime performance, durability with easy cleanup, quick and even heat distribution. The Multi-Ply material used in Viking cookware is the most advanced formulation of stainless steel and aluminum alloys in the world today. This exclusive combination of layers conducts heat more evenly and quickly to give you better results. Known for its exceptional appliances, its professional cookware products are manufactured in Belgium yet designed in the U.S., so you get the best of both worlds. If you're choosy about how your cookware not only looks but also performs, Viking is the ultimate choice. Each piece features an exclusive 7-ply construction of 18/10 stainless steel and aluminum alloys paired with ergonomic handles that have stay cool vents for comfort while cooking. You may use Viking cookware on any heating surface, including halogen, induction and ceramic, plus gas and electric. For lasting beauty and performance, we recommend handwashing. Our New 5 piece cookware set includes: 1.5 quart sauce pan with lid, 9.5 inch fry pan and 5 quart sauce pot with lid. Designed in the US made in Belgium.
