Why you need Vitromax in your kitchen

Ordinarily, you should never transfer cookware from hot to cold immediately because it causes a little thing called ‘thermal shock’.

But you don’t need to worry about that with the Vitromax range from Maxwell & Williams.

It’s made in France using advanced glass-ceramic technology which makes it super strong. You can take it from temperatures ranging -40 to 300 degrees Celcius, no problem. Amazing, right? We think so.

That means you can cook your favourite dishes, serve up, and pop them straight in the fridge or the freezer. Too easy!
