The lid is hinged and balanced with a gas spring, making it easy to open and preventing it from accidentally falling down.
The heavy, glass-blown steel pan can accumulate a big amount of heat that gives a very even hot surface even when big amounts of cold food is added.
The frying pan has four sturdy legs with adjustable feet for easy and safe mounting.
Temperature is controlled by a thermostat with a dial. On medium and large models there are two separate controlled heating zones, so that it is possible to cook in one zone and keep the food hot in the other at the same time.
