Swiss Diamond can trace its roots back to 1974, Sierre, Switzerland, as a scientific research company exploring new materials and surface coatings. In 2001, the company developed a revolutionary nonstick coating suitable for use on cookware. To this day, all products designed by Swiss Diamond are manufactured with this cutting-edge "XD" nonstick surface coating. Swiss Diamond cookware is manufactured mainly in Switzerland, using hydroelectric green power in a clean and safe environment. The brand includes high-end kitchen knives, handheld mixers, stainless steel cookware, and kitchen tools. Riverbend Home is an authorized retailer.
