All you need to do is cook 'em low and slow to end up with scrambled eggs that are rich in flavor, fluffy in texture and—we're just gonna say it—luscious.”
A foolproof kitchen tool that's affordable,
reliable and surprisingly durable
Cast-iron and stainless steel pans are great, don't get us wrong. But there's something to be said for a great non-stick pan. One that all but guarantees mess-free scrambled eggs, a nice sear on your meat or perfect stir-fries. And the easiest of grilled cheeses. But for all their promises, most non-stick pans have their limitations.
This version is not like most non-stick pans. Created by Zwilling, the German brand best known for their knives, they look sleek and modern—honestly, it's what first drew us to them. Well, that and their surprisingly affordable price tag. But while the price point is relatively low, the quality is high.
Crafted in Italy from forged aluminum, the non-stick coating is actually made from a hardwearing "DuraSlide" granite. That means that there's no perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), the chemical that may have potential health hazards, giving most non-stick pans a bad reputation. It also means you can use pretty much any utensil when cooking and toss it in the dishwasher when you're done.
It heats quickly and evenly and an engineered pouring rim makes sliding out omelettes or plating delicate foods a breeze. The other clever design detail? An ergonomic phenolic stay-cool metal handle. That means that this is a non-stick pan that can go into the oven, allowing you to finish off a dish or simply keep your pancakes warm. Food52 is selling a range of sizes and shapes, from a personal-sized 8-inch skillet to a deep, 12-inch wok. Time to ditch the old, scraped up non-stick you've been getting by with and upgrade.
