Cono Italiano, Inc. and Carte Blanche, the manufacturer of Crossfilm Cookware, have developed a cooking apparatus and cone holder to prepare pizza cones and breakfast cones (egg and cheese) in high speed efficiency ovens. The material used in this process is a Polytetrafluorethylene (PFTE) composite, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) and designed specifically for food contact. Mitchell Brown, CEO of Cono Italiano, Inc., has stated, "The development of this device will be instrumental in the launch of the Pizza cone into the QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) and Convenience stores. It will allow the consumer to purchase our product at store level using fresh ingredients, at the same time maintaining the integrity of the product a fresh crisp and crunchy dough." Crossfilm Cooking products are capable of being used in temperatures ranging from -100 degrees F (-73 degrees C) to 600 degrees F (316 degrees C),they are grease resistant, non stick and dishwasher safe. Unlike other brands, there is no mechanical reinforcement such as fiberglass in the food zone, eliminating potential food contamination during extended use. As it wears it exposes a new PTFE surface insuring "sustained FDA compliance."
