LOTUS ROCK CARBON STEEL: Perfection Redefined


Definition of a perfect cookware is the one which excels every set benchmark of a home maker. For the love of cooking we often try and find utensils which not only give us effective cooking results but are also easy to maintain and clean. Out of all the cookware types available in market ALDA discovered an innovation in form of Lotus Rock Carbon Steel.

The Lotus Plant is often taken as symbol of purity in due to its supreme self-cleaning ability.  The plant is covered with wax crystals which are hydrophobic (water hating), which forces the water into spherical droplets. Thus these droplets do not penetrate into the leaf rather these droplets roll down taking dirt particles along with it; this self-cleaning process is called the Lotus Effect. The lotus rock carbon steel cookware has been developed on similar concept so as to ensure better cooking and easy cleaning of utensil. Unlike the usual cookware, where it is difficult to clean the food residues after cooking, the wax crystal layer helps in smooth rinsing.

Additionally, the thin layer of glass crystal, which rests upon the hard ceramic interior surface, has a second quality: it is not just hydrophobic (water hating), it is also lipophilic, which means it is permeable to cooking oil.  Unlike Sauces and other liquids the cooking oil is able to rest in between the wax like crystals. Always adding oil before cooking creates a physical non-stick surface, perfect for a high-quality cooking experience. Thus unlike other cookware Lotus Rock Carbon Steel pans allows cooking oil to seep inside the top of the coating, so that they can be cleaned vigorously without removing the non-stick release, and do not need to be re-seasoned frequently. Also because of its high heat resistance, self-cleaning ability and supreme hardness, the Lotus Rock is a product that can be used happily for many years. Lotus Rock is a strong, long life and environmentally friendly product.
