    Teflon is nonstick because it resists the Van Der Waals bonds of water. This is a laser etched piece of metal that does the same thing, but even more strongly. 



    Probably still susceptible to scratching from metal utensils, but still to have a surface that won't shed toxic chemicals at higher heat would be a great thing in the kitchen. And it should be tougher than teflon as well.

    I suppose it is creating a surface similar to the lotus effect.

    Pretty interesting info. Thanks both.

    I wonder how the laser etched surface will react at high temperatures.
