Teflon® nonstick coatings in six colors

No Longer Just Black and White

The new colors will turn heads at retailer’s shelves and in America’s kitchens. In addition to looking great, consumers will continue to enjoy all of the benefits of cooking on a coating that offers superior durability and nonstick performance.

The superior nonstick performance and durability of DuPont™ Teflon® nonstick coatings is now commercially available in the United States in six delectable new colors.

The 2012 introductory colors, which included Hot Chili (a spicy red), Lavender Blue (a rich blue), Champagne Gold (a classic shimmer) and Ivory (an elegant neutral), are joined now by Spicy Olive (a stylish green) and Aubergine Purple (a vibrant eggplant). The palette will satisfy consumers’ taste for style and individuality, as well as their appetite for something fresh in their kitchens. During the Housewares Show, the colors can be seen at DuPont booth S3910.

“The new colors will turn heads at retailer’s shelves and in America’s kitchens,” said David W. DeVoe, North American consumer marketing manager, DuPont™ Teflon® consumer finishes. “In addition to looking great, consumers will continue to enjoy all of the benefits of cooking on a coating that offers superior durability and nonstick performance. And, just like Teflon® nonstick coatings for cookware and bakeware, the new Color Collection is made without using PFOA.”

Each color was created to inspire cooks to purchase and use cookware and bakeware that reflect their personal taste and kitchen design and enhance the presentation of their traditional and seasonal dishes:

  •     Hot Chili – The color is bright, fun and cannot be overlooked at the point-of-sale. It engages experimentally minded individuals and will leave no one cold.
  •     Lavender Blue – Friendly and familiar, this distinctive hue enhances the presentation of cakes, bakes and desserts.
  •     Champagne Gold – This color is classy, combining luxury with understatement. The high-quality appearance leaves an impression of natural elegance.
  •     Ivory – Simple yet elegant, Ivory is one of the world’s most versatile colors. Its minimalist feel impresses those with an eye for style, while its calm, soft tone creates an aura of pure relaxation.
  •     Spicy Olive – Spicy Olive has the flair of urban plazas and cobblestone streets filled with street cafes and live music, appetizers and snacks.
  •     Aubergine Purple – This color signals glory and splendor, pure joy of life. This warm and inspiring hue is an invitation to spoil you with color.
