Calphalon Non-Stick Griddles – They Are Fabulous

calphalon-nonstick-griddleMy grandchildren and I love pikelets and pancakes. We each have our favorites and when we decide to have a pancake cooking time, everybody helps. I like my pancakes plain with butter added while they are warm so that the butter soaks into the pancake. Sometimes I like to add a jam such as  blackberry .

So if you and your family love pancakes then you are going to love this  Calphalon 13-in.  Simply Calphalon Nonstick Round Griddle Pan. It is always easier to use a pan that is made specifically for creating a particular item as using the right pan ensures that your cooking gives you the result you require.

Now although this griddle is ideal for cooking pancakes, I have found many uses for cooking things such as French toast, bacon, eggs, panini, cheese sandwiches and much more. In fact the only thing it really isn’t suitable for is making omelets, but that is only because they end up as crepes as the 12 inch pan is a bit big and the mixture spreads out too thinly for the end product to be considered an omelet.

I guess the key features of the Simply Calphalon non-stick range are, of course that it has a nonstick interior and this makes clean up a breeze, then there is the the healthy non fat cooking, the stay-cool, arched handles that are double-riveted to provide comfort while cooking and the heavy-gauge, hard-anodized aluminum for even heating and lasting performance. On top of all these fantastic features is the fact that the griddle is oven-safe to 450 degrees, so if you feel the need you can finish off cooking food in the oven.

This griddle is one of those items that is so versatile it won’t languish in the back of a cupboard, you will be using it all the time.

And Calphalon’s griddles cater to all tastes in cookware as they have come in round and square.

As you can see the Calphalon 11-in. Nonstick One Nonstick square griddle pan is also ideal for toasting ham and cheese sandwiches or for cooking blueberry buttermilk pancakes.

The wide, flat surface turns up at the sides, preventing any butter or oils from dripping onto your stove top.  Introducing Calphalon One Nonstick, the latest cookware line that boasts a special nonstick cooking surface – the only one of its kind on the market today. It’s the first to combine Calphalon’s exclusive infused anodized technology with a revolutionary nonstick cooking surface – the One and only cookware you’ll ever need. Calphalon 11-in. Nonstick One Nonstick Square Griddle Pan

The interior surface has a special matrix of four interlocking nonstick layers that gives the pan flawless food release of sticky foods like sushi rice, cheese or caramel as well as delicate foods such as eggs and seafood.

On the exterior, the pan’s heavy-gauge aluminum construction is infused with a special polymer that resists stains and cleans-up beautifully.

The pan has a long, triple-riveted, cool-to-the-touch stainless handle, perfectly balanced for lifting and carrying.

Cooking Without My Jamie Oliver Tefal Cookware

jamie-oliver-grill-panI am currently out at our property in Tara, Queensland which is in a rural area far from what I consider to be the civilized world. My husband felt we were bringing quite enough stuff so I had to leave behind my Jamie Oliver frypan and skillet. It’s not that I am without the necessary utensils to create a meal, I have my Sunbeam electric frypan, turbo oven and an assortment of cheap brand frypans and saucepans, Weber and gas range. It’s just that now I have moved up to the better quality cookware I really miss all it’s great features.

After all Jamie Oliver cookware has a fantastic non-stick finish which means even the eggs don’t stick to the pan. Believe me the horrible mess of eggs I am serving up at the moment is not a pretty sight. Everything sticks to the cheap frypan and burns in parts even with the heat turned right down. This is something I am no longer used to as my T-Fal frypan has a red spot that lets me know when the pan is at the right temperature to add food and because of the conductivity of the metal used, it reacts quickly to changes in temperature.

Not only does my lovely Jamie Oliver cookware make cooking a breeze, it also washes up quickly and easily. A task that is not quite so easily undertaken with the cheap homebrand frypan.

So as much as I am enjoying the peace and quiet, the goannas, the ducks, the kangaroos bouncing over the paddock and sitting by the fish filled dam, I am missing my great new cookware.

Speaking of Goanna’s, this fellow came to visit while I was sitting out by the dam, throwing bread to the fish. I have been told that they make great eating but I am content just to take his photograph.

Cookware Review: Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Saute Pan

Our first review for the Rachael Ray line of cookware has just been added. We decided on the oval saute pan as this is a very popular piece in the Rachael Ray range.

Rachael Ray was definitely thinking outside of the box when she designed this range of cookware. This pan is quite unique with its oval shape and bright orange trim.

We like it. It’s modern and fun but most importantly it does the job.

My New Jamie Oliver Professional Series Tefal Grill Pan

Jamie Oliver Grill PanOn Friday night I finally succumbed and purchased the Jamie Oliver Grill Pan and today I cooked Porterhouse Steak for lunch.

Wow, this pan cooked the meat to perfection and because it has the shark’s tooth ridges which transmit heat to the ridge peaks, it chargrills perfectly.

This is the 28×24 (approx 11″x 9″) cast aluminum grill pan has prometal non-stick interior/exteriors. And what is prometal I hear you ask – well it is Tefal’s premium multi layer coating that is reinforced with ultra hard minerals making it metal utensil safe and super easy to clean.

Being a T-fal product it has the red thermal spot indicator that lets you know when your pan is pre-heated to the right temperature that will seal in the flavor.Tefal Red Spot

The pan is of course dishwasher safe.

Jamie Oliver and T fal have produced what I would consider to be one of the best ranges of cookware for the home cook, that is available on the market today.
I am so thrilled with with all the pieces of Jamie Oliver cookware that I have purchased recently and I am sure you will as well.
