The Evolution of PuraSteel™: A Story of Innovation and Dedication
At Hesslebach, we take pride in our commitment to offering the world's healthiest and safest cookware. This journey began with our founder, HK Kim, an esteemed 89-year-old innovator with a rich history in stainless steel craftsmanship. Since the 1960s, Mr. Kim has been a pioneer in the field, known for his work on prestigious projects, including creating durable stainless steel goods for the White House and German speed trains. However, it was a personal crusade that led to the birth of Hesslebach and its groundbreaking material, PuraSteel™.
PuraSteel™: A Culmination of Passion and Science
PuraSteel™ emerged from Mr. Kim's pursuit to create non-toxic, safe cookware for his wife battling cancer. His devotion and expertise in stainless steel were instrumental in developing this unique material. PuraSteel™ is a special cast stainless steel alloy, re-engineered down to the atomic level, combining the durability and heat efficiency of traditional materials with unparalleled safety standards.
Understanding Stainless Steel: The Foundation of PuraSteel™
Before delving into the specifics of PuraSteel™, let's briefly explore stainless steel. Commonly used in cookware, stainless steel is valued for its corrosion resistance, durability, and ability to maintain luster. It's an alloy of iron with a minimum of 10.5% chromium, which forms a passive layer that prevents further corrosion. This makes it an ideal choice for kitchenware, offering longevity and a sleek appearance.
The Significance of PuraSteel™ in Modern Cookware
PuraSteel™ takes the foundational benefits of stainless steel to a new level. It's a bespoke creation, incorporating advanced alloys and SUS316 stainless steel, known for its minimal metal leaching and high-grade quality. It has been rigorously lab-tested to ensure it surpasses the highest safety standards, confirming its non-toxic nature and guaranteeing the preservation of the wholesome quality of your food. Its resilience against extreme temperatures (oven-safe up to around 1000°F), which is resistant to rust, stains, and chips, highlight its superiority. PuraSteel™ is non-toxic, corrosion-free, and extremely durable, making it a superior choice for health-conscious consumers.
The Benefits of PuraSteel™: Beyond Traditional Cookware
Non-Toxic and Safe:
Unlike traditional cookware that may leach heavy metals, PuraSteel™ ensures a toxin-free cooking experience. Its chemical stability, especially when cooking with acidic ingredients, ensures that your food remains uncontaminated and safe.
PuraSteel™ is designed to resist rust and corrosion, ensuring longevity and consistent performance.
Heat Conductivity and Cooking Efficiency:
The material's construction allows for even heat spread, resulting in perfectly cooked meals as well as quick heat conductivity and longer heat retention allowing for efficient cooking.
