TECHNOLOGY AND PRODUCTION
The Made in Italy quality is particularly noticeable in the production phase. For the production of our pots, pans, skillets and saucepans, only aluminium discs are used: aluminium is an excellent heat conductor, lightweight and easy to handle. Furthermore it can reach higher temperatures in less time, distributing heat evenly over the entire cookware surface, thereby achieving a better cooking performance. Pressing technology is used for manufacturing. In fact, with the use of pressed aluminium (i.e. aluminium that has not undergone die casting), small inclusions of air within the non-stick coating are prevented – a side effect that can happen to cast aluminium during the heating process and that can affect the cookware’s longevity and resistance. Therefore Illa only produces pressed aluminium cookware. Another quality feature of our company.

Illa’s punctual and constant work to improve its safety standards, allows the company to pass consistent and periodic inspections by independent Agencies and audits, including unannounced ones.
Illa has recently upgraded its facilities by acting both on the production and the coating lines. The entire production chain – which undergoes daily and periodic checks – is equipped with highly efficient cutting-edge fumes treatment devices to reduce harmful emissions, both inside and outside the workplace.
Illa has also launched an ambitious energy improvement project that aims to achieve a further 20% reduction in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
Illa strives daily to reduce the amount of waste generated, implementing a constant re-use of waste materials. The consumption of water during production processes has greatly reduced: Illa’s plants are fitted with a closed system where the water used is treated and recirculated. Sediments or polluted process water are disposed of and treated as civil waste; this allows Illa not to resort to industrial dumping.
