What is the difference between Alchimy and Affinity, aren’t they both stainless steel?
Yes, both the Alchimy and Affinity lines are stainless steel cookware, but there are 2 main differences between the two. First, they are aesthetically different with Alchimy featuring a unique brushed exterior, while Affinity features the classic polished stainless steel exterior. The second (and biggest) difference is the construction. The Alchimy line features a 3-ply construction of 18/10 stainless steel, a heat conductive aluminum middle layer, and a durable and induction-compatible exterior, while the Affinity collections features a 5-ply construction made up of 3 layers of conductive aluminum sandwiched 2 layers of high-quality stainless steel, also induction-compatible.
How does multi-layer differ from an aluminum encapsulated base?
Stainless steel cookware with an aluminum encapsulated base conducts heat only throughout the bottom base of the utensil. With the Alchimy and Affinity collections, the multi-layer technology extend throughout the base as well as up the sides of the utensil, allowing for better heat conductivity and circulation, cutting down your cooking times and making your time in the kitchen even more efficient.
How do I keep my cookware looking clean and like-new
Cleaning your stainless steel cookware is easy – to start, our Alchimy and Affinity lines are dishwasher safe, although we recommend handwashing with dish soap and hot water as much as possible to preserve the like-new quality of your stainless steel cookware. Continuous use of the dishwasher can lead to potential alterations of the material due to extreme heat and harsh detergents. To remove any stuck or burnt-on food, you can soak the utensil in hot, soapy water and scrub it off with a kitchen sponge. For stubborn messes, you can boil some water and scrape off any stuck-on bits.
To keep your Alchimy and Affinity cookware looking like-new you can use a non-abrasive cleaner, like Bon Ami or Bar Keepers Friend for stubborn stains. To restore the shine, you can also rub it gently with some white vinegar and water.
Does stainless steel cookware have nonstick properties?
Depending on what you are cooking, food may stick to your stainless steel cookware if the temperature is either too hot or too cold, but when used correctly, stainless steel cookware will be your favorite in the kitchen. It might take some trial and error to figure out what works with your cooking style, but a good tip is to always pre-heat your pan.

Since 1830, every de Buyer utensil has been conceived and designed in France following the most stringent quality requirements. The majority of our products, and specifically our cookware, are engineered and manufactured in our factory in France. The few exceptions are products, such as some silicone and bakeware utensils, that use manufacturing processes that cannot be sourced in France. Such partners, wherever they are in the world, are always selected according to our high standards of quality and integrity.
We believe in producing and offering our customers the
highest quality products across all of our product lines, following responsible manufacturing processes. Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility has been recognized as Exemplary by AFNOR, and we strongly
believe in integrating social and environmental practices into every aspect of creating high quality cookware and bakeware.
From the Chefs we partner with to the individuals working at all levels of our company, everyone involved in making a de Buyer product is inhabited by the same passion: allowing passionate cooks and bakers like you to thrive in the kitchen.
The "Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR) commitment label that we received in 2018 is the recognition of our efforts in fields like environmental protection and workplace safety and inclusivity, whether internally or among our partners. de Buyer is the first and only French company in the culinary industry to receive this label.
