Since inventing the nonstick frying pan in the 1950's, T-fal® has introduced a wide range of cookware collections, including nonstick coatings designed for use with metal utensils and the invention of Thermo-spot™- a major advance in nonstick. The patented Thermo-spot™ technology indicates when the pan is perfectly preheated by the pattern spot changing to solid red, and gives food the perfect sear. Additionally, T-fal has introduced a host of innovative household electrics appliances, among them a healthy multi-cooker – the ActiFry®, toasters, irons, indoor grills, electric kettles, and deep fryers. T-fal is on a mission to change the way we cook and eat so it is simplified and easier. T-fal also partners with Chef Emeril Lagasse on the Emeril by T-fal line of small kitchen appliances.
