Frying pans are one of the most essential pans in the kitchen, and with good reason. Lotus Rock fry pans are carefully designed to give you exceptional results, whether you’re cooking a delicate omelette, searing a chicken breast, or sautéing garden-fresh vegetables. The secret is in Lotus Rock’s quality construction and design details. Here’s what you should be looking for:
A thick, flat bottom. This allows you to use a medium-high heat to cook eggs quickly without scorching. Thickness also prevents pans from warping, which can result in uneven cooking.
Superior conductivity. Lotus Rock’s thick carbon steel construction, 2.0mm, distributes heat evenly and responds to subtle changes in heat level, so the cook (not the pan) controls the cooking process.
The right cooking surface. Lotus Rock, with its excellent PTFE-free non-stick nano-silica coating, is ideally suited for use with a frying pan. Easy-to-clean, metal utensil safe, with 350 degree heat resistance, a Lotus Rock frying pan can be used in a kitchen for as long as a cast-iron pan.
Long, stay-cool handles. Long, well balanced handles give you room for a firm grasp when maneuvering a pan over heat, or when swirling or flipping food. Lotus Rock’s stay-cool stainless steel, wooden, and soft grip handles keep their cool when you’re working on the stovetop, too.
Cut or rolled sides. Cut edges make the pan lighter and easier to maneuver for quick movement over a high heat source. Rolled sides help guide food, such as an omelette, as you move it around the pan, and facilitate perfect swirling and flipping too. Moreover, rolled edges encourage food to easily slide out the pan and onto a plate, without breaking.
Size availability. Lotus Rock frying pans come in a wide range of sizing, from 18cm up to 30cm – choose the right size for best results. Small 20cm diameter pans are perfect for single servings, sautéing small ingredients such as mushrooms, or making pan-sized pancakes. Medium 26cm diameter pans are good for omelettes and all-purpose sautéing, as well as grilling sandwiches or frying bacon. Large 30cm pans are ideal for crepes, preparing steaks or filets, or sautéing larger amounts of food at one time.
