I don’t know about most of you, but I enjoy cooking and preparing big meals with lots of side items, etc. I must say, unfortunately, this “enjoys cooking” thing is an odd trait for the typical caveman, such as myself. However, I can’t say that I enjoy cleaning up the mess that I often make in the kitchen, but that’s besides the point… Ha-ha!
Anyway, this promotional post is for the ones who are interested and would possibly like to buy stainless steel cookware, skillets, frying pans, etc., online. Over the years, I have seen many good skillets and frying pans come and go. I even tried that whole “iron skillet” thing like my granny does, and I even managed to screw that up. Iron skillets are great, don’t get me wrong, but when you use a lot of acidic marinades for your meat, it doesn’t always go well with a seasoned iron pan, to say the least. Plus, if you don’t dry them after you wash them out, iron is bad about rusting. Basically, iron skillets are not for everyone…
Anyway, a while back, I got fed up with these cheap skillets from Walmart, and decided to finally spend the extra money and get me something that I know will last a lifetime (unless I figure out a way to destroy this one), and that is a big, solid, durable, stainless steel frying pan! You can find them in most stores that sell housewares and kitchen products, including Walmart, but it’s so much easier to browse through a large selection by simply shopping online.
At any rate, I’m sick of using those shoddy aluminum-coated skillets that often flake off aluminum into your food, over time. What did it in for me, when it comes to aluminum-coated frying pans, was the last time I fried salmon patties on one and ended up with specks and bits of aluminum-coated chips on the salmon! After cleaning the pan, I notice there was chunks of aluminum gone! But, in that case, I got what I paid for. I desperately needed a larger pan, and my girlfriend went out and bought the cheapest one she could find. After a few uses, it started chipping off badly.
I think most of us that cook regularly, have all seen the non-stick Teflon cookware go to hell, as it often scratches and loses bits of Teflon over time, that we can hope we didn’t have to ingest during the pan-degrading process. Plus, those aluminum and Teflon-coated skillets can’t withstand the heat like the iron or stainless steel frying pans can.
I don’t know if it is true or not, but I was once told that Teflon releases a poisonous vapor when overheated. I hope not! I remember one time, I was preheating a Teflon skillet and went outside just to throw out my trash. Well, about that time, a neighbor started talking to me about something. The next thing I know, after I totally forgot about the skillet I had on the oven under high heat, the smoke detectors are going off and there is a cloud of smoke everywhere. Yes folks, I melted that sucker. The Teflon skillet was now white and warped, and that chemical vapor was all in the house. I had to air out my house by opening both doors and cut all the ceiling fans on for a couple hours. I didn’t get sick, but I was also drinking beer and taking milk thistle, at the time, so maybe I flushed the toxins out, not sure.
Anyway, I’m getting off subject here. After buying one of these stainless steel skillets, I have never been more satisfied with a piece of cookware in my life. I don’t have to worry about overheating it, foods seem to naturally not stick to it, and it cleans very well. No matter how dirty it looks, it wipes clean in no time at all, and best of all, I should never have to buy or replace it again! Over time, I plan on replacing all of my pots and pans with stainless steel…
