I have some pots and pans that I have had for years, they have cooked so many memorable meals for the family and for Mr R and I. However, sometimes it is nice to get some new kitchen equipment especially when it fits in so well with what you already have.
When I was younger ‘non stick’ was great until it got a bit old or you scratched it and suddenly the coating started peeling and you got little bit of black peppering your food and it wasn’t pepper! Nowadays there are some great non stick pans on the market, one set of these was sent to me by ProCook to put through their paces.
The Elite Forged Wok is a really useful size especially as I am only making my stir-fries for myself and Mr R.
I also made the pasta sauce for dinner tonight in the wok, the size was perfect for spaghetti pomodoro for two people with a bit left over for lunch the following day!
The Elite Forged 28cm Shallow Casserole pan with a glass lid is the perfect size to make my somewhat famous pasta sauces in. The surface is completely non stick due to the triple coated superior non-stick release technology allowing me to sauté my onions and celery with the minimal amount of oil. The garlic didn’t burn and the bacon cooked up nice and crispy.
I always use plastic, silicone or bamboo utensils in my pans which does give them a longer lifespan in the long run.
The glass lid lets you see through without letting all the steam and therefore flavour escape.
Something else I really like to have on hand when I am cooking is a salt and pepper grinder and Pro-Cook sent me their Soft-Touch Electric Salt & Pepper Mills.
Not only are they sleek and lovely to look at, have a little light when you are grinding so you can see where the spices fall but are also so easy to operate with only one hand leaving the other hand to stir.
My kitchen essential collection just got a bit better thanks to ProCook.
I was sent the three items to review. I was not paid or required to write a positive review. As usual all opinions and photographs are my own.
