Chefs on television make it look so easy to grab a pan and flip the foods inside. It is a skill, like rapid chopping with a knife, that usually cannot be learned without investing in a culinary degree. Sure, some people try it at home when they are feeling confident making pancakes on the weekend or whipping up a stir-fry on a weeknight, but usually this move just results in a mess all over the stovetop and the floor. The problem is not the cook, but the pan. A new line of non-stick, patented high-rise lip pans, called the Radical Pan, make it easy for any chef of any skill level to flip foods with a flick of the wrist.
Flipping foods instead of stirring is more efficient, helps achieve an even cook and makes anyone look like a master chef in front of friends and family. Chef Oren Zroya, a private chef for celebrities like Owen Wilson and Brooke Burke, invented the Radical Pan designing it with a patented 3.5-inch high-rise lip on the far side of the pan opposite the handle that makes it easy for even the most inexperienced chef to use the pan to flip pancakes, stir-fry, omelets and more.
The hard-anodized pan has a chemical-free non-stick surface tested and certified safe by the FDA, SGS and NSF. It is PFOA-free, contains no PTFE, lead or cadium. The Eclipse® non-stick surface reduces the need to add fats and oils to recipes to keep foods from sticking to the pan. The surface will repel the stickiest, most burnt on foods. Even eggs require no post-cooking scrubbing of the pan. With the Radical Pan, cooks can blow eggs out of the pan with the power of their breath, that is how effective this non-stick coating really is but if a simple wipe of a towel is too much effort for cleanup the pan is dishwasher safe. The Radical Pan can be used on gas, electric and induction cooktops, and oven safe up to 500 degrees.
The Radical Pan is available in an 8.5-inch ($89.99), 10-inch ($99.99) and 12-inch ($109.99). The pan comes with a lifetime warranty and can be purchased at www.radusa.co.
Over twenty-five years ago, Chef Oren Zroya moved to Malibu, California, called by the surf and the SoCal lifestyle. He earned his culinary degree and one day while surfing and watching the curl of the wave he came up with the idea for a pan with a high-rise lip that would make it easier to toss and flip food. The Radical Pan was created from this moment of inspiration, the easiest to use, safest, healthiest non-stick pan of its kind. For more information, visit www.radusa.co.
