If I had to suggest one kitchen item that every cook should own, it is this All-Clad Frying Pan. I have been cooking for a number of years and I swear by the quality of this brand. This pan not only heats quickly, but also evenly due to the layer of aluminum in between the steel. This means consistent cooking – no more “hot spots” in the middle of your pan . The second reason I love this pan so much is that it is oven proof. Pan-roasting is one of my favorite cooking techniques to use with wild birds. I brown the breast in the frying pan on the stove top, flip it, and transfer it directly to the oven to finish cooking – $155 click here to learn more.
