Importance of stainless steel in cookware
Stainless steel, the foundation of our workmanship, is revered in the culinary world. Renowned for their durability, corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, stainless steel is truly the mainstay. But in addition to these practical attributes, it also provides optimal heat distribution, ensuring an even cooking surface, an essential feature for professional and home cooks alike. At KÖBACH, we accept the challenge of turning this material into cookware that not only meets but exceeds expectations.

Stainless steel cookware manufacturing process: A step-by-step overview
As we embark on this journey of discovery, I invite you to observe the meticulousness and care in each stage of the production process at KÖBACH. Take a look at our world-class stainless steel cookware production steps.
Sourcing of Raw Materials: Securing the Best Start
It all starts with securing first-class raw materials. We pride ourselves on forming strong and lasting partnerships with our suppliers, based on a shared commitment to quality and sustainability. Rigorous quality testing ensures that we work with the finest materials possible, laying the foundation for our high-quality cookware.
Material selection: the foundation of quality cookware
At KÖBACH we accept not only the materials that are supplied to us; We evaluate them carefully. We test the purity and consistency of our samples, assess our suppliers’ ethical and sustainability standards, and carefully negotiate pricing and delivery terms. This careful selection process is necessary to maintain the high standards we set for our cookware.
Pressing: shaping cookware
The transformation begins with the pressing process, where our stainless steel billet takes the form of a pan. The material is pulled through a series of dies with precise control, ensuring uniform shape and desired quality. It’s a remarkable transition from a flat plate to something that’s starting to look like your favorite cookware.
Cutting and Rolling: Shape Finishing
After pressing, advanced machinery and precise blade positioning cuts stainless steel into shape. Edges are rolled for a smooth, burr-free surface, and all waste is responsibly recycled. This stage is very important to ensure the ergonomics, safety and aesthetics of the cookware.
Cleaning & Drying: Ensuring perfect hygiene and aesthetics
Cleanliness is a top priority in our process. Each cookware undergoes a thorough cleaning process to remove dust and contaminants. It is sprayed with water, soaked in a cleaning solution, rinsed and dried with a hot air blower. This step ensures that the cookware has a clean, smooth surface ready for the next step.
Sandblasting: Surface preparation
After cleaning, the cookware is sandblasted with high-speed abrasive particles. This process removes any residual impurities, creating a lightly textured surface that improves the adhesion of non-stick coatings or other surface treatments.
Non-stick coating: Improve usability
With the cookware preheated and sandblasted, it’s time to apply a non-stick coating. This coating, which hardens at high temperatures, forms a durable bond that improves the usability of cookware and is easy to clean. Meticulous quality checks follow this step, ensuring that each product meets our stringent standards.
Laser Engraving: Exact Marking Deployment
Then our lasers go live, etching logos or designs onto kitchenware with unsurpassed precision. This step ensures consistent branding across all of our products, a visual testament to our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
Packing: the final step into the kitchen
The final step is packing. Automated machines carefully pack, label and pack cookware for shipping. Here, we take a moment to appreciate the journey each piece has taken, from a humble stainless steel drum to a culinary masterpiece ready for your kitchen.
