NEW LIFE FRYING PAN

RECYCLED FOR A NEW LIFE

Make the sustainable choice in cookware. Kuhn Rikon's NEW LIFE cookware, with a pan body made of 100% recycled metals, keeps recyclable materials out of the landfill, uses less energy to produce, and reduces your carbon footprint -- all with incredible quality and performance.

THIS IS HOW WE DO ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT AND REASONABLY PRICED

A SECOND LIFE FOR ALUMINUM CANS

The New Life frying pan consists of 100% recycled aluminum from Europe and is manufactured with up to 95% less energy than conventional aluminum frying pans. Around 30 soda cans, bicycles and other recycled metals make up a 9.5-inch frying pan. 


 

PRODUCTION IN SWITZERLAND – AND COST-EFFECTIVELY SO?

The New Life frying pan not only contains 100% recycled aluminum,  for the first time in about 35 years, an aluminum product is being manufactured once again at the Swiss site in Rikon. We are producing the aluminum frying pan here in Switzerland because its production is technically demanding, and we are paying due attention to the highest quality. And doing so cost-effectively into the bargain.


A FRYING PAN TO MEET ALL REQUIREMENTS!

Whether for trying out new food trends (let’s just mention Japanese okonomiyaki pancake!) or fast, vitamin-rich, cuisine: the New Life frying pan can cope with every culinary adventure and, with its timeless clean-line design, goes with every kitchen.

STABLE ALUMINUM FRYING PAN

Up to now, most aluminum frying pans were easily deformed. Thanks to new technology, we have been successful in making the material of the New Life frying pan more stable and more durable. This high-quality recycled material is tougher than pure aluminum. Drop into one of our shops and just pick up a New Life frying pan in your hand. When you feel the weight of this frying pan, you will quickly be convinced of its durability.


 

TOP PERFORMANCE ON THE STOVETOP

The full area induction surface distributes the heat quickly and evenly, and the thick base retains it for a long time. This in turn has a positive effect on energy consumption. The ergonomic Bakelite handle remains cool even at high temperatures and sits very nicely in your hand.

VERSATILE IN USE

Also, due to its 3-layer non-stick coating, ceramically highly reinforced, the durability and increased resistance of this frying pan is impressive, and it is ideal for the gentle and low fat frying of vegetables, potatoes, fish, fried eggs and poultry meat. Searing, or the heating up of meals, can also be done with the New Life frying pan – it does it all. The coating is water-repellent – this makes the pan easy to clean, saving time and water.


THIS IS HOW ALUMINUM IS RECYCLED

The compacted aluminum scrap (cans, window frames, etc.) that arrives at the recycling plant, is first crushed again and placed on the conveyor belt. Once the impurities and the coating have been removed, the aluminum is re-melted into blocks and then hot- and cold rolled to its final thickness. Finally, the disks are blanked from the coil, and can now be transformed into a pan body.

UPCYCLING: SUSTAINABLE, EFFICIENT AND MAKES ECOLOGICAL SENSE

Recycled aluminum…

  • … is produced with up to 95 % less energy.
  • … saves around 9 kg CO2 per kilogram of aluminum,
  • … is more hardwearing and durable than normal aluminum.
  • … has less impact on the environment.

SELECT THE RIGHT SIZE

THIS IS HOW THE NEW LIFE CAME ABOUT

Pascal Gull is Head of Product Management and responsible for the New Life frying pan. He was involved throughout: right from the idea via development through to launch. In the interview he explains what steps the team went through in this process.

TOSS ASPARAGUS INTO THE FRYING PAN

Toss green asparagus and plum tomatoes into the New Life frying pan and prepare a delicious asparagus-tomato salad. With an orange and a lime, you can conjure up a creamy orange vinaigrette. Grilled fish or seafood go well with this.
