Rohais Belrose. Frying Pan. February 16th , 2017.
I am sure most of you might be looking for a general purpose pan which has a good quality non-stick surface that can be cleaned with ease and also reduce the fat content in the food. You can pick a number of such pans for different purposes. You must also consider the depth while choosing a frying pan. For an example if you cook omelettes then you would require having shallow sides so that the food can slide out easily. In case you start off a dish and add sauce then you might require a frying pan. Apart from this, you need to make sure that your frying pan should have a good heavy base. Some brands like Swiss Diamond or SKK might be an expensive option but can last for years.
When choosing your fry pans, you might want to consider buying a cookware set that comes with several pans and pots that will enable you to cook a huge variety of dishes. The sets will normally come with several skillets and fry pans that will allow you to manage your frying for different quantities - this is important because if you`re using too large a fry pan, the oil and juices get evaporated or absorbed much too quickly and you`ll need to keep adding more oil to the pan. This is not only wasteful, but it can get quite unhealthy in the long run. So pick the right sized pan for the job.
When it comes to cooking, you have to use only the best pots and pans. Some people might not mind using random cooking instruments, but a good chef knows that using good pots and pans is as important as having fresh and great tasting ingredients. Now, there are many brands of pots and pans in the market. Some are very affordable, but are not made with good materials. Some are very expensive, but really the majority of what you pay for is the brand attached to the instruments. When it comes to cooking instruments, you have to be both meticulous and practical. You should look for instruments that of great quality, but are still priced reasonably.
Aluminum and stainless steel are durable metals that also conduct heat very well. A frying pan made out of either of these metals will require little maintenance. I love these metals for cookware but I have noticed that food tends to stick to the surface quite easily if not properly greased. Manufacturers created a non-stick coating known as Teflon to address sticking problems. While this coating does wonders for the sticking situation, it can peel after extended use. Peeling often occurs as a result of overheating. This is not a favorite of mine.
Most pans do not have a lid, if one is important for you- consider buying a sauté pan that will have a lid but, will probably be a bit wider and deeper than a frying pan. A glass lid is comfortable for looking in on the food, but it limits the temperature resistance of the pan (in case you would like to place it in an oven), as do handle materials such as wood or Bakelite. If putting the pan in the oven is something you do often when cooking, consider a frying pan that has a lid and handle from the same materials as the body (easily found in Stainless Steel, which offers the ability to place in an oven as hat as you like for as long as you like).
