The innovative and recent pot collection KNPRO was designed in 2012 by architect Massimo Castagna in collaboration with Adele Martelli, exclusively for KnIndustrie. This series of capacious pots has a clean and essential design, enriched by the presence of two steel handles that guarantee a safe grab and a practical product manageability. KNPRO pot is entirely made of borosilicate glass: it creates an original and refined transparency, which will turn ingredients and boiling water into the real cooking protagonists. Thanks to its capacity of 9.5 litres, a diameter of 24 cm and height of 20 cm, its inside can contain up to two practical and functional pasta baskets: entirely made of steel, it is sold separately. Use it as a practical ice bucket to hold your wine or spumante bottles during your parties or evening dinners. Versatility typical of KnIndustrie’s products can be found even in KnPro pots: dishwasher safe, it can be used to cook on hot plates, gas and ceramic hobs, but cooking on induction hobs is possible only through the induction adapter, sold separately. It is possible to activate the product warranty on KnIndustrie’s website.

This project was presented for the first time in 2011 in the crucial centre of Milan’s fashion and design, Corso Como. The objective is clear right from the start: creating a series of products in which originality, courage, environment sustainability and innovation join in order to revolutionize the world of international kitchen and to simplify the usage of kitchenware. Objective cleared. All KN INDUSTRIE’s collections have refined and elegant design, characterized by a deep care for details and impeccable quality.
