FAQ

 

  • GlideX was originally invented for the demanding professional catering market. We realised that most non-stick surfaces were inferior and many of them failed to live up to the non-stick name at all. So we decided to do better, working on a coating that is much tougher than your average non-stick.

    We redefined the meaning of ‘lifetime performance’. GlideX sets a new standard for nonstick bakeware.

    Now we’ve developed our superior, hard wearing and durable non-stick coating for home bakers.

  • We apply the coating in our factory using an automated roller coating process. We can apply several coats at once, reducing the time and resources required. Then we cure the coating at a high temperature to secure its bond to the metal surface.

  • Yes. We subject GlideX to an abrasion test using a Scotch-BriteTM pad under a 2kg load. That’s heavy-duty scrubbing action – much heavier than normal cleaning would provide. GlideX is able to withstand more than 10,000 cycles (or rubs).

    In contrast, silicone-sprayed non-stick coatings break down and begin to show the metal beneath after just 5,000 cycles.

    If you’d like to know more about our testing procedures, please get in touch. We’re happy to share our techniques and results.

  • Our laboratory conducts a rigorous roasting and cleaning test to check on five key points:

    1. Non-stick performance
    2. Scratch resistance
    3. Flake resistance
    4. Ease of cleaning
    5. Stain resistance

    Our tests prove GlideX really does perform like new every time. If you’d like more information about our test results, please get in touch.

  • The coating is a unique multi-layer system. The base layer is reinforced with inert particles, which means that the coating is chemically unreactive. It is less vulnerable to corrosion than other non-stick coatings, making it very flake and scratch-resistant.

  • As its name implies, food simply glides off it. Its multi-layer technology prevents food sticking, turning out perfect results every time. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed.

  • Yes! There is no need for hard scrubbing. Simply soak for a few minutes and wash in warm soapy water. Residue slides off incredibly easily and the bakeware looks like new every time you wash it.

  • Yes. We perform rigorous daily testing and we are comfortable claiming that GlideX is THE best non-stick bakeware. Your baking, roasting and cooking will keep gliding from the pan giving you perfect results every time.

  • You can buy it online or in-store, from Amazon, Debenhams and Dunelm. We’ll be expanding our stockists in the future, so keep an eye on our stockist’s page.

  • Yes, GlideX comes in a range of colour options for both the interior and exterior of the bakeware. So whatever your tastes and kitchen décor, you’ll be able to find bakeware that suits you.

  • GlideX is made in Great Britain. In Wolverhampton, the Heart of England, to be precise.

  • GlideX is a registered trademark of Cooper Coated Coil.

  • Cooper Coated Coil (CCC) is an international specialist in pre-coated metal production. The company supplies metal for a wide range of housewares and consumer products. CCC was a pioneer of pre-coated non-stick bakeware material and has continued to develop its products. GlideX is one of its finest achievements. The company has more than 30 years’ experience supplying a global network of bakeware manufacturers.

  • Spray-coated non-stick bakeware usually has only one layer of non-stick coating. It tends to be uneven in thickness and often suffers from thin spots. The thin spots are not very resilient and break down easily. Food clings to areas where the coating has broken down, causing it to degrade further.

  • GlideX is very safe – for you and for the environment. None of our material contains PFOA, so we guarantee that it’s safe. Our factory uses the latest technology to minimise the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. Our production methods are 95% efficient.

  • Yes – but because it’s so easy to clean, we recommend you simply wipe the surface with a warm soapy sponge or cloth.

  • No – you should never put metal in a microwave.
