The Streamline ceramics bakeware collection now includes casseroles in 1.9qt, 2.8qt. and 4.2qt. sizes, with a white base matched to either an Almond Cream, Azure, Buttercup, Empire Red, Key Lime, Onyx Black or Persimmon top, at suggested retail prices ranging from $49.99 to $99.99.

Suggested retail prices range from $34.99 to $36.99, with the lid and pan included.
The new cast iron grill pan with panini press is designed with raised ridges across the entire pan, delivering similar results to that of an outdoor grill.

Also soon to be available is the new wok and steamer insert, as part of the Tri-Ply Stainless Steel cookware collection.

The steamer insert acts as a double boiler inside the wok for gently steaming seafood, dumplings and other foods. Suggested retail price for the wok is $199.99; suggested retail price for the separate steamer insert is $112.99.
