Newell Brands’ Calphalon unit has unveiled two new non-stick cookware technologies, MineralShield and AquaShield.
“The Calphalon brand is dedicated to providing precision and quality, and it is our top priority to make sure our consumers have the best possible cooking experience,” said Kris Malkoski, business unit CEO, Writing and Food at Newell Brands. “When your eggs, chicken or shrimp stick to the bottom of the pan, it not only ruins the meal, but it also ruins the moment. This next generation of Calphalon nonstick cookware delivers remarkable food release over and over, performing better and longer than previous collections.”
MineralShield is made from some of the earth’s hardest materials making it five times more durable than the previous generation of Calphalon Classic Nonstick, according to the company. The technology is metal-utensil safe with a long-lasting, 3-layer nonstick interior, is compatible with gas, electric and glass cooktops and is oven-safe up to 400°F. MineralShield is available now across the Calphalon Premier collection.

The technology is also oven-safe up to 400°F. AquaShield is available now across the Calphalon Classic and Select by Calphalon collections.
