The Silit Modesto cookware series combines outstanding functionality with a clear and harmonious design. The black pots and pans in various sizes are suitable for use on all types of hob, while the extra-strong, energy-saving base conducts the heat directly up to the rim, where it is retained for a long time. The see-through lid made from heat-resistant glass sits firmly in the pan, allowing vegetables, fish and meat to be gently cooked in only a small amount of oil or water. The flared pouring rim enables easy pouring and draining of liquids. The high-quality handles made from special plastic are heat-resistant and can thus be handled safely without a pan holder, and thanks to flame-retardant stainless steel, the cookware can also be used on gas hobs. The dishwasher-safe Modesto collection includes a deep and shallow casserole pan with lid (16, 20 or 24 centimetres in diameter), a milk pan (14 centimetres in diameter) as well as a saucepan without lid (16 centimetres in diameter). A lay-on lid has a specially shaped rim so that it lies perfectly on the pan. Due to its weight, it sits tightly on the pot, without forming an airtight seal. When necessary, it can also be quickly set aside. Small holes in the Silit lay-on lids prevent an unwanted vacuum forming inside the pan. These holes ensure the controlled release of steam: no more rattling, no more boiling water splashing onto the hob. The stainless steel handle can easily be held when cooking, as heat from the lid is not transferred to the handle. Lay-on lids are made from hard-wearing Cromargan and are easy to clean – either by hand or in the dishwasher.
