My shopping for the Bialetti Aeternum ceramic frying pan (the flashy pink one) was unplanned and extra an accident than a deliberate buy.
I had simply moved to my new workplace which is absolutely simply an residence I take advantage of for my workplace and was working away in the future once I felt like fried eggs. I had a couple of plates, some utensils and that’s about it. No frying pan.
Thankfully, there’s a small grocery retailer shut by and I knew they promote some kitchen wares. I additionally knew I’d pay an excessive amount of for it there (in comparison with locations like Amazon or Walmart) however I actually needed some fried eggs.
I hit the shop’s small kitchen wares aisle. I had two frying pans to select from. I opted for the larger one which turned out to be the Aeternum frying pan. Whereas I’m going for a extra black and white impartial motif in my workplace, I used to be effective with the flashy pink and white.
At residence, we’ve a stone end frying pan which I actually like so I wasn’t certain how a lot I’d just like the extra shiny, slicker ceramic fashion frying pan. I had a hunch I wouldn’t prefer it as a lot because the stone end. Seems my hunch was appropriate but it surely’s actually splitting hairs.
Let’s get into the main points.
What do I like about this frying pan?
Total, I like this pan simply effective but it surely’s not one of the best frying pan I’ve ever used.
1. It’s certainly non-stick as in depraved slick.
This factor is ridiculously non-sticky. The ceramic works effectively. After I run my finger alongside the floor it jogs my memory of when Clark Griswald put a “non-chloric, silicon-based kitchen lubricant” to grease his sled. That’s how slick this frying pan is.
I don’t cook dinner a complete lot in my workplace however I fry up floor beef, do eggs and warmth different issues up considerably recurrently with and nothing sticks. Cooking fried eggs with it’s most spectacular. They only slide round as if on ice.
Right here’s me frying a slice of cheese:
If cheese doesn’t stick, nothing will. Properly possibly one thing will however nothing I fry.
2. It’s sturdy and hefty
This factor weighs fairly a bit and I can really feel it’s rock strong. The deal with is hooked up securely to the pan. The pan itself is heavy, which I like when cooking. You’ll be able to see that it’s a thick metallic by the thickness of the rim.
3. Snug to make use of
The deal with isn’t too lengthy however lengthy sufficient to grip it effectively with a medium-soft grip in order that it’s comfy to make use of.
4. It’s dishwasher secure
Let’s not child anybody right here… I’d not purchase a frying pan that’s not dishwasher secure. I don’t purchase something that’s not dishwasher secure. Whereas I do typically wash it by hand simply because it’s quicker I typically put it within the dishwasher. I do know, having spoken to kitchen wares boutique retailer house owners that even when it says dishwasher secure it’s higher in the long term to clean it by hand however that’s not going to steer. If a pan lasts 3 years as a substitute of 5 however I can put it within the dishwasher for these three years, I’m placing it within the dishwasher.
5. Oven Protected
Okay, I don’t put it within the oven a lot however I can if I needed to. Regardless that the deal with is silicone, it’s oven-safe which is nice. The best way I determine it, the extra any specific kitchen gadget can do, the higher so long as it may well do it’s main perform effectively.
Would I purchase it once more?
I’ve no difficulty with this frying pan. It does what it says it does and that’s being non-stick. Take a look at extra pictures of this pan in motion frying a slice of cheese.
