Test Results

Below are results that show how GMM products compare against the best offerings from our competitors. We are proud that our best 2 and 3 coat systems outperform any other coatings that are available in the marketplace, and the data displayed below are routinely reconfirmed by our clients.

Further, unlike many other coatings companies, we do not simply only worry about the 7 tests listed below. We refuse to play "follow the leader" in the nonstick coatings industry, and are committed to constantly developing newer tests and procedures that are increasingly "kitchen realistic" yet non-subjective and very quantifiable.
