Hestan Cookware Nabs Two Red Dot Design Awards

    Hestan's CopperBond cookware.

    Hestan Culinary’s ProBond and CopperBond cookware have each won a Red Dot Award for excellence in product design.

    Designed by Stanley Cheng, founder and chief executive officer of Hestan, ProBond features triple-ply construction that includes the brand’s signature aluminum ProCore, which is said to deliver 35% greater heat conductivity. The line also features cold-forged stainless steel technology, which places metal where it’s needed most for optimum performance and durability.  

    ProBond is designed with a striking mixed metal styling that has an industrial-chic aesthetic while helping to mask scratches and staining.


    CopperBond features a modern take on traditional copper cookware with a design that combines gleaming copper with a wrap-around magnetic stainless steel base for enhanced durability, induction use and easier cleaning. 

    Other design elements include a collar rim of polished stainless steel and matching stainless steel lids, handles and fittings. CopperBond also offers five bonded layers of copper aluminum and stainless steel

    “The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot. “The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury.”

    “We’re delighted to be the recipient of one of the world’s most highly regarded design awards for our ProBond and CopperBond collections,” said Stanley Cheng, founder and CEO of Hestan. “It’s always gratifying to us when our talented design, engineering, and manufacturing teams are acknowledged for their fine work and dedication to creating truly innovative and beautiful culinary products.”

    All Hestan cookware – including the company’s original and signature NanoBond collection – feature a non-reactive 18/10 stainless steel interior cooking surface, flush rivets for easier cleaning and nesting/storage, sealed and flared rims that won’t separate and provide drip-free pouring, chef-tested handles that are ergonomically designed for comfort and a secure hold, and skillets offering 20 percent greater capacity. 

    Hestan ProBond and CopperBond can be viewed in the online exhibition of the Red Dot website beginning June 21. This date also marks the beginning of the Red Dot Design Week, during which this year’s award winners and Hestan Culinary will be celebrated online.
