Summary

This pan from Utopia Kitchen is made from superior food-grade 3003 aluminum, and is lead, cadmium and PFOA free. It comes with an induction base that makes it versatile for cooking on any surface. The base is heavy bottomed, which is very useful if you want to do some slow cooking.

It is available in 11” working space which is about the right size that can hold a good amount of cooking material in it, and yet also compact enough to carry it outdoor for camping or barbeque cooking. At just under 3 pounds, it is one of the lightest models available on the market.

The induction base helps in even cooking and therefore prevents hot spots. It comes with an ergonomically designed and stylish Bakelite handle that is heat proof and also scratch resistant. The package contains 1 frying pan, care and wash instructions. It is dishwasher safe up to 350° Fahrenheit.

Comparison

Two other brands have similar features, Tefal and Maxware. All the three brands are induction compatible and made with professional-grade 3003 aluminum.

Tefal has a couple of options when it comes to size and utility. They have introduced a slinky new feature—“Thermo-Spot” technology, that indicates when the pan is at optimal temperature before you start cooking.

The available sizes are the 12.5” pan that can be used for sautéing and shallow frying, and has the Thermo-Spot feature. The 8”, 9.5”, and 11” omelet pan set do not have the Thermo-Spot feature. The biggest advantage of the Tefal pans would be that they are oven proof, which is probably the reason as to why it costs a lot more than the others.

The Maxware pan is built to North American Electrical Standards and has a hard anodized exterior. Their pan is an 8.5” skillet that is also versatile, but one standout feature would be that it comes with the glass lid, so that is very convenient if you are looking for a cook and store or cook and serve kind of pan.

Verdict

An ideal frying pan for daily cooking. Value for money as it comes with a 2-layer non-stick durable coating. You can cut down the usage of oil for cooking because of the 2-layer non-stick coating and opt for a healthy lifestyle. It is scratch resistant and therefore metal-utensil friendly.

It is easy to clean as there is less or no food stuck to the bottom. Manufacturer recommends cooking at low to medium temperatures for ideal cooking and to extend the life of the product. It is dishwasher safe and hence, easy to clean.

It comes in a chic and modern shade of grey with a steel-finish induction base. The induction base is heavy bottomed and is perfect for long duration cooking. The size and the shape are ideal for a variety of cooking; from shallow frying to slow braising small portions of food.

The pan is well-designed, and comes with a heat and scratch-resistant handle. It looks stylish wherever it is used or stored, and is ideal for outdoor use as well.
