Chefs swear by a frying pan
Chef Hugo Kennis is a fan of the casserole. A pan that is actually much more than its name suggests. “This is a pan that I think you should have at home. Also for tasty winter dishes, to slowly stew meat. Expect meat to come out tender and juicy. This is because the frying pan is made of solid cast iron and so on. has an optimal heat retention. “
1: Multifunctional kitchen aid
You can safely call a cast iron frying pan a heavyweight, but as soon as you know what it can do for you, you will soon forget it. What the frying pan has to offer? Where you can use many pans only on the stove, this kitchen helper goes a step further. You can also put it in the oven. A feature that allows you to go in all directions in the kitchen: from delicious oven dishes to simmering pot roast for hours. Stew and roast, check.
2: Non-stick coating, not necessary
Years ago, the non-stick coating was created, which means you need less (olive) oil or butter and thus cook healthier. Not all non-stick coatings are as harmless as they seem. This is because toxic fumes can be released during cooking if it is not a PFAS-free ceramic non-stick coating. Do not you want to.
The beauty of the cast iron frying pan is that it does not use a non-stick coating. Not necessary. What it is with this type of pan is that you make your own layer with a dash of oil. If you let it heat up vigorously, it will adhere to the cast iron.
3: Purchase for life
Such a strong frying pan may be an investment for a while (think of around € 100 to € 200), but it is a quality product that will last for years. Especially if you know how to best maintain these kitchen utensils. Or how not. Because although you probably would like to put it in the dishwasher after baking or stewing, you can better leave it. The casserole is more of a hand wash. Make sure you use a mild dish soap and a soft sponge so that you cannot damage your pan. Child can do the laundry.
