Better Cooking

Recently I bought a new frying pan from Amazon. Today I finally went to toivel it and decided to use it to cook dinner. I made stir-fry with BBQ sauce. The frying pan is hard-anodized aluminum and this thing rocks! Cooking and cleaning is a pleasure. One thing I like about it is that instead of one long handle it has 2 steel ones, comes with a lid and is oven-safe up to 450 degrees! You can start cooking on the stove and move the whole thing into the oven, or the other way around.
I seriously recommend this to anyone who likes stir-frying.


  1. A guy I worked with at a catering company told me that cooking in aluminum can be a cause of illness later in life as the aluminium gets into the food.

  2. There's a lot of aluminum that's naturally present around you. The idea was based on what one researcher said and it later turned out he was misquoted.
    Caterers use aluminum all the time and so do restaurants.
    In either case, hard-anodized aluminum has a coating that locks in the aluminum so that it shouldn't interact with the food.
