Developed in the internationally-renowned Oxford Thermofluids Institute, Oxford’s novel cooking pan technology achieves higher efficiencies through the use of external fins.

Oxford’s cooking pan designs have arisen from a facility where world-leading solutions for jets and rockets are researched, tested and engineered. 

Oxford University Rocket Scientist invents

disruptive Cookware Technology 

The pans were, interestingly, the result of a mountaineering trip. Pots take forever to heat at high altitude, making Dr. Povey realise that a large amount of energy is simply lost heating the pan, rather than  the water.  Dr. Povey is an expert on jet and rocket engines, so literally a rocket scientist. He decided to bring the benefits of his thermodynamics knowledge to the kitchen, reimagining the saucepan.

The Worshipful Company of Engineers awarded Professor Thomas Povey, the inventor of Oxford’s novel cooking pan technology, their prestigious Hawley Award for “the most outstanding Engineering Innovation that delivers demonstrable benefit to the environment”. The project behind Oxford’s cooking pan was also a Green Apple Award winner.
