Misen
This cookware collection designed for Misen features sculpted handles that maximize ergonomics and bases that provide even heat distribution and retention. Sloping, rounded handles soften the performance-based materiality of stainless steel, with each consideration in form working to further the offering’s total function. Appropriate for both the professional and home cook, the seven piece collection features skillets, sauciers, sauté pans, and a stockpot.

The collection is distinguished by tactual rounded handles whose subtle tapering allows heat to escape while providing proportional balance for easy maneuvering. In the bases, rolled and closed edges offer enhanced pourability and durability, whereas the curved walls of the saucier provide an ideal surface for whisking. The collection balances performance and beauty, speaking to the confluence of cooking as both an art and a science.
