Just like any other product, buying cookware can be difficult. So many choices and different price tags. You can get a frying pan for anywhere from 5$ to 500$, so when buying cookware, you should look at the brand name. Some brands have established themselves on the market as creators of high-quality products, or simply said, as “a choice you can’t go wrong with.”
Woll is one of those brands. It’s founded in Germany back in 1979 as a family-owned business. Over the course of 4 decades, they perfected the technology of cast cookware making. In this guide, we’ll give you a detailed overview of Woll’s Diamond Plus series cookware.
Are your kitchen cabinets filled with numerous cookware, most of which you barely ever use? Perhaps it’s time you get rid of needless and unused pots and pans and get yourself a brand new set containing all you need for everyday cooking. A Woll Diamond Plus 10-piece cookware set might be the perfect thing for you.
Woll Diamond Plus set includes:
8-inch fry pan
9.5-inch fry pan with lid
11-inch sauté pan
2.2-quart saucepan with a 7-inch lid
3.2-quart stockpot with an 8-inch lid
7.9-quart stockpot with an 11-inch lid
You really don’t need any other cookware in your kitchen. This set allows you to prepare a full meal for a large family.
The main feature of this set is its durability. This is thanks to miniature diamond crystals which are ingrained into the sandblasted aluminum. The diamonds make the cookware damage-resistant and non-stick, two characteristics that don’t usually go together. Non-stick surfaces aren’t known to be very durable – they tend to get chipped easily and thus start releasing toxins. In fact, it’s advised that you replace non-stick pans every few years. This is not the case with Woll.
In case you didn’t know, diamond is actually the best thermal conductor, five times more than silver, which is the most heat-conducting metal. So, thanks to tiny diamonds, the cooking surface will heat up fast and even, without cold spots. It’s also safe to use in the oven, set on up to 500F, without any worry of damaging the cookware. Finally, once you’re done preparing a meal, you can forget about dish soap and sponges, since all set pieces are dishwasher safe.
OLL's Diamond Lite Cookware is made in Germany and features a 5-layer design for enhanced longevity: a diamond reinforced top coat, a long-lasting nonstick base coat, a unique anti-corrosion layer, a cut-resistant base layer, and sandblasted aluminum. The durable top coat cooks and cleans with ease and delivers excellent heat retention for efficient heating and even browning.
This casserole pan isn’t a part of a 10-piece set mentioned above. But if you’re a fan of lasagna or any casserole dish, this is a piece of cookware you should have in your kitchen.
Woll makes casserole pans in two sizes: 9.5-inch and 11-inch, and we find the latter a better option for anyone that cooks for more than one person on a regular basis. After all, it’s better to have leftover food than to stay hungry, right?
Like other pieces from the Woll Diamond series, this casserole pan has a coating with embedded diamond crystals, making it non-stick and durable. This is especially important for oven-made dishes. In order to serve the food, you have to scratch the surface with a spatula. A lot of non-stick coated cookware easily gets chipped this way so you have to be extra careful, but thanks to the diamond coating you don’t have to worry about that with this pan. In fact, the manufacturer claims it’s also metal utensil safe.
This casserole pan is a part of Woll’s Induction Ready series, specifically designed to give the best performance possible on induction stoves. Ferromagnetic special-steel induction bottom is applied to the whole surface of the pan. This allows it to heat up rather quickly and without any heat congestions.
Another detail worth noting is the additionally reinforced edge. It’s designed specifically to give a high level of shock resistance while also helping you to pour sauces without any spilling.
This probably isn’t a staple piece of cookware in everyone’s kitchen, but let’s be fair – who doesn’t like crepes? And while you can try making them in a regular fry pan, flipping them could be a bit of a struggle. So, for all crepe lovers out there, this is a really important addition to their kitchens.
The size of this crepe pan is 10.25 inches, which is ideal. Crepes get heated evenly and you can easily flip them – this could be an issue with larger pans. The walls on the pan are very low, which is convenient for flipping even the thinnest of crepes.
This is yet another product from Woll’s Diamond edition, and as you already know, it’s durable and non-stick. This is perfect for crepe making, since the non-stick surface doesn’t require oiling up the pan or adding the oil to the dough, making it a more healthy option. Once you try out a non-stick pan, you’ll never go back to pans without the coating. You can forget all about burning your crepes in the process. Finally, the pan has an induction bottom so it can also be used on an induction stove.
This pan is dishwasher safe, like other cookware from this series. However, the food comes off of the pan so easily, there’s really no need for it to take up space in the dishwasher. You barely even have to touch the surface with the sponge to get it cleaned.
Wok fans swear by it – it’s a perfect piece of cookware for anything from stir-frying and boiling to making stews and even smoking. It’s so versatile no wonder it became a rather popular staple in the kitchen.
Depending on the type of stove you cook on, you can choose either the regular or the induction-ready wok. The latter comes with a steel insert within the aluminum base, making it suitable for induction stove cooking. Both styles come in three sizes: 10.25-inch, 11.75-inch and 12.5-inch versions. We find the 12.5-inch model most suitable for cooking a whole dinner for 3 people.
There are two types of works – flat and round-bottomed. This model from Woll comes with a flat bottom, which makes it a better choice for cooking on an electric stove. Flat bottom allows the wok to stay stable on the stove without the need for a wok ring. It also spreads the heat evenly throughout the bottom of the wok. However, they aren’t reserved for use on electric stoves only, but can also work on gas stoves.
Woll claims the wok is, like their other products, metal utensil safe. While the coating is quite damage-resistant, we’d still advise you to use wooden utensils when cooking.
The only thing we could complain about this wok is that Woll hasn’t made a lid in any of the size the wok comes in. The lid isn’t a necessity but it’s handy, especially when you want to simmer the food in the wok.
Let’s be real – no matter how many pieces of cookware we have, one-pot cooking is always tempting. It’s simply economic and that’s something everyone can appreciate. This is why the chef’s pan is a great addition to everyone’s cookware collection. If a skillet and a saute pan had a baby, it would be a chef’s pan. You can saute and sear the food in it, and then place it in the oven to complete the meal.
Generally, a chef’s pan is round, but this model from Woll has a rectangle shape. This allows the optimal use of pan space. For example, a large fish or a long piece of meat can fit diagonally, whereas with round chef’s pan, that wouldn’t be possible. This pan is 10.5-inch long and 11.75-inch wide, so it’s perfect for cooking just about anything.
The chef’s pan comes with a safety glass lid. It has a metal rim and a knob with permanent steam vent. The glass is designed to be less likely to break or get shattered across the room when broken. However, if that does happen, you can buy a new lid for this model separately.
The pan has a cast handle that allows you to safely lift it off the stove. The integral brass insert keeps the handle sturdy and firmly fixed. The pan itself weighs 4 pounds, so it would be great if the pan also had a side handle to help to lift it when it’s full. It’s induction-ready, so it can be used on both electric and induction stove.
Woll cookware features a 5-layer design: a diamond reinforced top coat, a base coat with a long-lasting nonstick effect, a unique anti-corrosion layer, a cut-resistant base layer, and sandblasted aluminum. Real diamonds make the cookware durable and evenly heated.
Is Woll environmentally friendly?
Woll guarantees its cookware contains no PFOA, which has been phased out of use for the most part in the US under a 2006 voluntary agreement brokered by the EPA with eight major companies.
Another way Woll cookware is environmentally friendly is through its good heat conduction, which in turn saves energy.
How long are Woll products under warranty for?
Woll cookware is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship on the evenness of the bottom of the pan and on the pan coating, as well as a limited warranty on the detachable handle. If the product is defective, Woll will replace it if contacted within the 30 days of the purchase.
This warranty doesn’t cover the damage caused by misuse, accidents, alteration or overheating. It also doesn’t cover stains, scratches, marks and discolorations. The warranty doesn’t apply if the instructions from Use and Care literature weren’t followed.
What type of cooking utensils can be used with Woll cookware?
The damage-resistant coating on Woll cookware allows you to use any type of kitchen utensils, whether they are made out of silicone wood or even metal. However, don’t use an electric beater in the pot or pan.
How should Woll cookware be cleaned?
All pieces of Woll cookware are dishwasher safe. However, thanks to the non-stick coating, you can easily clean it with just hot water and a little bit of detergent.
Can Woll cookware be used in an oven?
Yes, Woll cookware is safe for oven use and can endure temperature as high as 500F. Lids and handles can also withstand high heat, but only up to 480F. If you own a piece with detachable handles make sure you remove them before using the oven. The same goes for using the lid on temperatures above the stated ones.
Can Woll cookware be used on an induction stove?
There is a range of pots and pans that are specifically designed for usage on an induction hob.
High-quality cookware has a high price tag for a good reason. As we’ve seen above, Woll uses advanced technology that includes using diamonds in creating a sturdy, non-stick surface. Basically, you know where your money goes. If you’re ready to set aside a bit more and get pots and pans that will last you a very long time, then Woll Diamond Plus series has everything you’re looking for.
