Great Pan for quick stir frys
I won this pan at the Blogher Food Conference in Miami and have been having a lot of fun with it. These are the recipes I have made with it so far:
- Stir-fried green beans with walnuts, mint and feta
- Addictive sesame noodles with chicken and veggies
- Hawaiian pupu chicken wings
- Hawaiian-style fried rice
- Eggplant and ground pork stir fry
These are the reasons I like this pan
It is beautiful - Truly this pan is elegantly designed. The shape and shiny surface are gorgeous. The handles are sturdy and the lid provides extra options for steaming.
It doesn’t need to be seasoned – Carbon steel woks are the traditional pans used for stir fry, but like cast iron pans and traditional paella pans, carbon steel woks need to be seasoned.
It doesn’t rust and is easy to take care of - Carbon steel rusts and must be meticulously dried on the stove each time you use it. Once a carbon steel pan rusts you have to clean it out with salt and oil, and depending on how much rust you have, the pan may need to be re-seasoned. My carbon steel wok is currently a little rusty and needs some work. My Anolon pan is good to go and that says a lot when you are in a hurry and ready to cook.
It deep fries beautifully – I used this pan to fry chicken and discovered two big benefits: 1) It uses less oil than a traditional frying pan, and 2) It is a lot cleaner. The wide high sides prevent a lot of splattering.
It can sustain high temperatures – The whole point of stir fry is to cook your food quickly on high heat. The copper bottom and stainless steel distributes heat well and can withstand heat up to 500 degrees.
It can go from stove to oven – I would not be comfortable putting a traditional wooden handled wok in the oven, but you can with this stainless steel pan.
The handle stays cool - For stovetop usage, the handle stays cool to the touch, so no need to scramble to get a pot holder before you pick it up.
Best of luck to you!
The winner will be announced on September 5th.
