“Made for catering professionals and lovers of responsible, healthy cooking with an open-minded approach to the future but feet firmly planted in tradition.”
Fonderia Finco is the family run business, based in Italy that has been going strong since 1945. They had a passion… they wanted to reinterpret tradition, get rid of needless frills and focus on ancient wisdom to emphasise the need for organic cooking.
Ghisanativa was born.
Ghisanativa is a cookware range that was consciously designed, with a creation process formulated over the years until perfected and beautifully finished – always with healthy and safe cooking being the at the forefront of their creation.
Cast iron is a symbol of tradition, domestic warmth, and common-sense cooking. Not only that, but cast iron is suitable to use with all cooking techniques, and its properties enables it to gather far more heat and retain it for much longer than another other material. On top of that, it releases the heat more slowly and evenly, and keeps food hotter for longer when removed from the hob.
All of the products in the Ghisanativa range are made from extremely pure cast iron – an original material that is undisputed in the kitchen over the centuries. Naturally, food does not stick to cast iron utensils, so requires no treatment or coating that can release corrosive or toxic gases when reaching certain temperatures. This is one of the reasons Fonderia Finco was drawn to cast iron for the Ghisanativa range – promoting health in cooking.
Due to the heating and cooling process which creates the Ghisanativa products, a tough layer of magnetite is created on the surface of the metal, which permanently protects against rust. After that, a film of extra virgin olive oil is applied by hand and then intensely heated. At 400 degrees, the harmful compounds liberated when oil exceeds its smoking point evaporate, which creates a black cooking surface which is satin-smooth to touch and scratch proof against all common kitchen utensils and cooking techniques. It is also extremely resistant to high temperatures and common detergents, with a natural non-stick finish which remains effective for years.
Another unique benefit of using the Ghisanativa range, is that the cast iron transfers only the beneficial properties of iron into your food, which in turn helps treat and prevent anaemia.
Without forgetting that in the kitchen, cast iron has been making life a little more comfortable, pleasant, healthy and tasty for centuries, Fonderia Finco’s innovative Ghisanativa range is perfect for any health conscious and safe cooking enthusiast, and a must-have range for every chef’s kitchen.
