What We Like
What We Don't Like
Cookware has been advancing so rapidly that anyone can cook an expertly fried egg or a delicious hamburger at home… with the right tools!
One tool that is preferred by many is a nonstick frying pan. If you use an induction cooktop you'll need a pan that is induction friendly. One of the benefits of induction compatible pots and pans is that they can also be used on conventional cooktops. If you can only afford one piece of cookware, then a quality frying pan is your best option. It can be used to prepare food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Here we are going to take a closer look at the Cook N Home 12-inch induction frying pan.
Cook N Home 12” Induction Frying Pan Review
The Cook N Home 12" frying pan has a nonstick coating and is induction friendly. This pan can be used on conventional stoves or on an induction cooktop. The pan itself is made of a thick-gauge aluminum. This is what makes it possible to use on an induction oven, as the heat will be conducted by the aluminum in the pan. The nonstick coating is free of cadmium and lead. The handle is soft and has silicone in it, which keeps it cool.
Who is This Product For?
If you are someone who loves to cook but has trouble with food sticking, you might find this Cook N Home pan to be a solution. The nonstick coating makes it simple to cook without the mess (or the cleanup!)
Additionally, those with induction cooktops at home or their weekend camps will find that this pan works well on all types of ranges, so it’s very versatile.
If you don’t like pans that are heavy, you should not use this pan. While it’s not impossible to lift, it does have some weight to it.
Overview of Features
This product can work with induction, gas, electric, and ceramic cooktops. It can even go into the oven in temperatures of up to 375°F.
Another great feature is one that many induction frying pans do not have: cool-touch handles. Since induction pans are made to conduct heat, the handles can become very hot if they are not made to disperse heat. This pan has coated handles that stay cool while you prepare a meal.
Finally, this pan is simple. It’s nonstick; you don’t need to use excess oil. It’s dishwasher safe or you can easily hand wash it. It’s comfortable; the pan has a riveted grip handle.
One drawback of this pan is the thickness of the induction materials on the bottom of the pan. While it heats evenly, lower-grade induction tops might have a hard time reacting with the pan.
How to Use
Because a pan like this is nonstick and reacts with induction cooktops fairly easily, there’s not much you have to do.
Place the pan on the induction cooktop and set it to the appropriate temperature. Once it heats up, add your desired ingredients, and begin cooking. You don’t have to use oil unless you want to because the nonstick coating will prevent food from sticking, and the even heating will prevent it from burning.
When finished, allow the pan to cool down (or cool it down gradually with warm water) before wiping it clean. That’s all it takes!
There are many alternatives to this Cook N Home 12-inch pan. However, we have selected the Anolon Nouvelle Copper Hard Anodized 12-inch pan as our favorite option. We reviewed the 8" and 10" pans (twin pack) from the Nouvelle Copper Hard Anodized line. I own these pans and am very pleased with them as they are really well built and designed. It is not necessary to coat the pan with fat and the cleanup is very easy.
