I am not a chef – not by any means. I don’t even try to pretend that I like to cook. What I will admit is that when I do prepare meals, I want quality cookware. I can’t stand when items stick to my pans, burn or scorch. I recently had a chance to try a new pan — Technique 3 quart 11″ Lighweight Cast Iron Open Everyday Pan.
At first I was not too sure as it didn’t have a traditional handle on it. I thought that I might not like using it. I was wrong. It really was a great pan. The clean up after using it was amazingly simple. In fact, you can actually wipe it clean with a paper towel (of course, I recommend that you use soap to clean it properly) – or place it in your dishwasher. I have always loved cast iron, but the weight has prevented me from wanting to use it. This pan combines the cooking quality of cast iron with the ease of using teflon – a marriage made in heaven!
When using the pan, food just simply doesn’t stick. You can use any utensil from plastic to metal on it and flip eggs, pancakes – anything with ease! The great thing is that you don’t even need to use oil! Of course, you might want to add a little something for flavor as you cook, but skip the oil and you’ll be cooking healthier meals for your family with less added fat. I really loved that feature of this pan.
Had I not been given this pan to try myself, I’d actually buy it — it is that good! You can pick one up at QVC for $29.98 (retail price of $53). Shipping is $7.47 — but if you purchase more than one you can save even more. Might be a good one to pick up for yourself and another for a wedding or even graduation or Father’s day gift! You really will not be disappointed in this pan – I for one – am not!
