Destanee Fournier. Frying Pan. May 13th , 2017.
Considering all the frustration and hard work it takes to clean up those pans after dinner, not to mention the wear and tear on your poor hands, you have probably thought about purchasing a nonstick frying pan. But, how much do they cost? You may not be willing to shell out an entire paycheck on one pan; -- I don`t blame you! Other than price, another thing you should be looking at is quality. Nonstick frying pans are available in a wide range of quality levels. So, let`s investigate further, "Are these pans pricey or cost effective?"
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.
Just before you go shopping for a pan, whether in a niche cookware shop or a big department store, you imagine it to be an exhausting task. You know the wide variety is going to shock you, that it will not make your decision any easier, and for a moment you are quite jealous of your grandmother for having had an easy time, for having had one fry pan (until you remember how difficult it was to wash that one pan and you are, again, happy to go shopping). Well, it`s not exhausting if you are prepared, know the differences and decide what you want before you ever step out of your house.
A really good frying pan is one that spreads the heat evenly across the entire surface, affording a shorter cook time and a smoother more appetizing food finish. Hard-anodized steel is a popular material often used in these pans and it does offer an even heat cooking quality. The only slight negative is you`ll need to clean this one by hand; it is not known to be dishwasher safe. Perhaps a slightly better product might be the laminated pans with several layers of aluminum and stainless steel together. The aluminum provides the even heat and the stainless steel provides the beautiful hard finish. And, it is dishwasher safe.
I had never thought about the fact that there was a huge difference in nonstick coating levels. Research shows that 1 layer may be fine for occasional use but if you are going to be cooking regularly I would suggest something with 3 to 5 layers. Of course, if you are a master chef then, by all means, get the 8 layer pan!
