When I took a class at SOHO in Winston Salem (Southern Home and Kitchen), the instructor used a Black Cube skillet. She was not trying to sell the skillet as she was focused on teaching us some delicious foods, but it was clear she liked this pan. So, afterwards, I decided to splurge and buy one.
This is what it looks like:
I am somewhat frying and sauteing challenged. I get distracted and the in the coursee of a few seconds, my food is very charred and I am airing out the house so that the smoke alarm does not start shrieking. However, this pan is rather more forgiving. It is described as non-stick but to be safe the times I have used it, i used maybe 2 teaspoons of oil. Truthfully, it was unnecessary. Of course a small amount of oil does add flavor.
What do I like about this pan: you can use metal utensils, it seems truly non-stick, heats up very nicely and quickly but I haven’t torched anything yet 😄, the weight is good, handle is comfortable, and it cleans very easily.
I really like this skillet. There is some kind of promotion on Saturday morning at SOHO in Winston Salem on 10/29, so check it out if you have a chance.
