Everything You Need to Know About Your Frying Pans
Just about every household has at least one frying pan because many families have been helped by this traditional cooking item in creating any number of meals throughout recent history. Around for quite some time is this accessible necessity of the culinary world. By using a frying pan, even people who claim that they can’t boil water have delved into creating interesting dishes.
However, not quite as simple as it may seem is what the cooking item is. This frying pan have different types and they each require different care when in use and when it is being cleaned. Hard-earned lessons are what many cooks have received by unwittingly mistreating the instrument.
Mistreating your frying pan can wreak havoc on the meal and on the cooking instrument itself but rather than lack of caring, mistreatment is often done out of lack of knowledge.
Out of a number of different materials, the frying pan can be made and each material requires different care and maintenance. What works for one kind of frying pan will not work for another so following some general rules for the various types of frying pans that you own is very important.
In cookware, one of the most attractive materials that can be found is copper. Withstanding some punishment and is an excellent conductor of heat is what a copper frying pan can do. By hanging them on a rack, many people like to display their copper cookware even though the copper tends to tarnish so be prepared to polish them every so often.
Durable metals that also conduct heat very well are what aluminum and stainless steel are and because of this, a frying pan made out of either of these metals will require little maintenance. For cookware, many people love these metals but I have noticed that food tends to stick to the surface quite easily if not properly greased.
To address sticking problems, a non-stick coating known as Teflon is what manufacturers created. While this coating does wonders for the sticking situation, after extended use, it can peel and peeling often occurs as a result of overheating.
A particular favorite of mine is the traditional cast iron frying pan. It gets better with age is what I love about my cast iron frying pan. What I learned is that this material will rust if it is washed too much, ruining it just like what happened with an antique one that m wife owned. With a paper towel, I simply wipe mine after each use. Among seasoned cooks, this classic frying pan is a favorite.
