The Green Pan
Almost a year ago, I got this green skillet. ‘Or-green-ic’ skillet, to be exact. It’s an Aluminum skillet, with a green sparkly ceramic coating. I was excited to try it, but other things came up…like work, moving, and well – life.
A few days ago, I was in the mood for eggs, so I got out the green pan, and read its directions. I was supposed to ‘cure’ it. I needed to rub vegetable oil all over the green surface, then put it on the stove on medium heat, and let it cook until it started to smoke. I did that.
After that was done, I was supposed to be ready to cook anything in it. The ads for the green pan say that you can cook anything in it WITHOUT grease. My first foray into green-pan cooking was sauteed Brussels sprouts, WITH grease (butter, to be precise). You can’t saute Brussels sprouts without butter or oil. You just can’t.
In any case, the next day, I was finally ready to try this pan WITHOUT grease. Mmmmm! Eggs!
It went well, to start.
Here’s a video showing how nicely it came off the pan, and was turned over. Push the ‘play button’ in the middle to make it go.
Once they were turned over, it began to stick a bit. Don’t get me wrong, the eggs were delicious.
However, I wasn’t expecting to see this in the bottom of the pan. The eggs DID stick. I can still recommend this pan highly, as these eggs really and truly were cooked without any kind of grease. I like it! I’m excited to use it again!
Do any of you have this pan?! What do you think of it?
