Has anyone here bought an Always Pan?

Friends who are big into cooking have said that this is a hot item right now. Wired magazine shits all over it, though.

Have any DLers cracked open the wallet to buy this $145 replace-every-other-pan pan? How was it?

I’m also curious about this.

I was turned off by the vocal fry Kim Kardashian-wannabe inventor.

I’ll stick with cast iron and carbon fiber.

Three times I placed an order but at the last minute, just could pull the trigger on $145 fry pan.

Buy a good wok.

Is it like the Forever postage stamp?

You’re canceled for saying wok.

Wasn’t it a lot cheaper before? For months I saw 50% off ads on YouTube. Or maybe it was 20% off.

Why would I buy something the color of old white ladies' pantyhose?

What useless friends you have. Who cares if it is a "hot item," they're not giving you hot insider tips on the stock market or real estate, they're not telling you that the pan is any good, they're just telling you that people are buying the damned thing.

The Wired review does it for me: a domed bottom of the pan means a big No.

But do hurry, supplies are, they say, limited.

To continue the Kardashian references, this color way could/should be called SkIMS.

No, All Clad or Cuisinart stainless steel pans is what I use.

About as useless as the copper pans, only idiots buy an "AS SEEN ON TV" product hawked by someone on meth.

Freakin' Reviews on Youtube did a review on this last year. Doesn't seem worth the price imo. You can get a full set of T-Fal cookware for less than $100 that will last you for years if you don't use metal utensils in them.

No, R6. It's more like the Forever Lazy.

Same here, R12. I too, use Cuisinart stainless. Once I go back to living without roommates, I'm buying a Le Creuset Dutch oven.

I have a cast iron griddle, a couple cast iron skillets, a wok I've had for 16 years. That's my former stuff, don't need nor want anything else.

"That's my FOREVER stuff..."

Nobody actually buys this, they just all try to make it seem like it's trendy to fool suckers like OP.

No but I am a big fan of their maxi pads.

The nonstick part apparently dies after about a month.

by Anonymousreply 22Last Monday at 7:36 PM

My " batterie de cuisine" consists mostly of All Clad and Le Creuset and some cast iron and a Calphalon crepe pan I've had forever. Oh, and a WagnerWare pan passed down from Mom.

It would survive a direct hit from a nuclear bomb.

What about the Misen pan from Kickstarter?

by Anonymousreply 24Last Monday at 11:25 PM

I googled this piece of shit pan and have been bombarded with Facebook ads, emails and other annoying propaganda. So fucking annoying.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Tuesday at 4:15 AM

I got the Misen nonstick pan for Christmas, r24, and am liking it a lot. However, their 10" pan is a lot larger across than the 10" T-Fal nonstick pan it replaced.

It took me a while to get used to it. I used the old one mainly for scrambling two eggs, and I cooked my bacon in a separate, larger pan. Now that I have this larger pan, I've figured out that I can cook the bacon in it first, then scramble the eggs in it after tipping out most of the bacon fat. Faster, and only one pan to wash.

The slogan on their website - complete cringe. This is the token copycat saying from food bloggers, food authors, Youtube foodies/influencers, Food Network TV personalities...

"Welcome to my kitchen!"

"...from my kitchen to yours!"

She pronounces words like "best" as "baaassstt". "Pan" like "paaaaaannn".

"This is a story of the cult favorite...waitlist inducing...the nonstick is pretty's our exclusive non stick coating and makes for the slippery surface imaginable..."

Fad cookery is for fools.

Just a few minutes ago I saw this ad for the first time. $145??

by Anonymousreply 29Last Tuesday at 4:10 PM

It would remind me of a bedpan. Which I wouldn't want to cook with, either...I don't think (?).

by Anonymousreply 30Last Tuesday at 5:46 PM

This is my favorite , a 12" sauté pan, I bought it when prices were still reasonable for $95.00.

Why would I spend $145 on a piece of shit when I can just drop one of my own on the cooktop and get the same result?

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
