Sometimes as a blogger, your family gets into things that they are not supposed to. I don’t want to name anyone, clears throat.. the Man, knew that I was going to do a review on a certain Anolon Cookware Pan. I guess he decided to throw that knowledge out the window when he saw it sitting on the table. Now, him trying out the cookware before me normally wouldn’t have been a big deal, except for the fact that he didn’t read the instructions. Go figure, right! If he had read the instructions he would have read, that BEFORE you use the pan, you need to soak it in some baking soda and water BEFORE you use it for the first time. You see because of the copper, it has a coating over it. See, I knew all of that, which is why it was sitting on the kitchen table waiting for ME. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper when I saw what he had done. I grabbed the pan and soaked it per the instructions. I was able to get it all off, although there are two spots on the bottom of the pan. Thank goodness for the face that it seems to not have harmed the pan in any other way. In fact, we haven’t used any other pan since we got this one. It is AWESOME!! When I use my old pan, I have to move it around to get everything cooked. You know what I am talking about, don’t you?! Turn it a little to the right, and then the left, and sometimes all the way around. UGH! Nothing ever cooks evenly in it.
I am in love with my Anolon Nouvelle Copper 12 inch Skillet ($99.00 retail value). I would not tell you that if it wasn’t true! Trust me, I am a very honest person, and will always be truthful with all of you. The pan cooks everything nice and evenly! There is no turning it just so to get it to do this. You can leave it in one place the whole time you are cooking! Another huge bonus about this pan is that it also cleans up in a snap. There is no scrubbing or soaking needed before washing. I always had to soak my other pan. It didn’t seem to matter what I cooked in it.
Here is how Anolon describes the skillet on their website:
From countertop to stovetop and beyond, the European-inspired Anolon Nouvelle Copper Nonstick 12-Inch French Skillet delivers superior, professional-quality performance with a sophisticated look. This versatile, large-sized skillet features durable, hard-anodized construction crafted with copper to deliver optimum heat control, and its double full cap base includes a copper core layered between aluminum and magnetized stainless steel, making it suitable for all cooktops, even induction. The skillet’s restaurant-tested Autograph® 2 nonstick is metal utensil safe and easy to clean, so a frittata made with farm-fresh eggs requires little to no butter or oil, and each delicious serving releases from the pan with ease. A generously appointed cast stainless steel handle is attached to the pan body using innovative flat-rivet technology for a clean and continuous interior surface. Oven safe to 500° F, this European-inspired skillet is an ideal complement to many other items in the Anolon collections.
