The versatility of the d5 Brushed collection is a result of quality construction and smart design. Each piece of this cookware collection features the d5’s patented inner core for even heating and improved performance.
The inner core consists of five layers:
- 18/10 stainless steel interior

- Induction stainless steel exterior
The d5 combines the durability and easy maintenance of stainless steel with the powerful heat conduction of aluminum to provide superior cookware that eliminates hot spots.
The cookware’s construction is energy-efficient as well. Its design allows heat to diffuse from the bottom of the pan and up its sidewalls.
The d5 collection also boasts a number of features that make the cookware convenient and easy to use, including:
- Long stick handles that stay cool
- Rolled lips for easy pouring
- Oversized riveted handles for improved comfort
