Funny Looking Pan

I only seen the commercial a few times around Thanksgiving weekend. I just don't remember the brand. One popular department store had it on sale for $29.99.

It has a weird design, with the handle side is lower than the opposite side. I saw how it makes tossing without using any utensils, just moving the pan back and forth. Hmmm... I wish I could show you. It's like a chef cooking in the kitchen.

Can you help me to locate the brand/model or link to the pan? I don't need to know which department store, because I could never get to shop there. I really need that useful cookware in my kitchen.

Thank you in advance.

Try the Linens N Things web site. I think I saw one the last time I was there. If you have a store near you that has it in stock, you can purchase online AND select in-store pick-up and you pay no shipping. Last year I wanted an item and my local store was out. They called another store to make sure they had it. I paid for it and they mailed it to me at no charge.

I have seen this pan in the commercials and IMO it is just a gimmick. It will not make flipping food any easier. The technique will still be the same. Flipping food in a normal pan is actually quite easy once you know how to do it. Try practicing with some dried beans in a pan (not on the heat).

Here is what you do. Grab the pan handle. Push the pan away from you and then with a sharp jerking motion yank it back towards you. You kind of want to snap it back. Give that a shot before you go out and buy this new pan. You just may be able to save yourself some money and kitchen space

I totally agree with GB. That pan isn't going to be of much -- if any-- help, as the technique of flipping food in a skillet is the same in that pan or a regular sided one.

My first reaction when I saw that ad was that food would be even more difficult to flip in that pan because of the higher back side.

I thought the exact same thing Jenny.

GB, I see you must have made lots of pancakes in your life time!!
I have too and with a little practice I got pretty good at it!! (You just jiggle around the skillet/griddle and see if the pancake moves around, if it does it is ready for the operation)

I am pretty good at it, but still flip my eggs over the sink!

I had to laugh the first time I saw that ad on TV. It's like the fold over omlet pan that's hinged in the middle.

GB and Jen have it right. It's a technique, not a tool that you need.

I don't flip over the sink, but maybe I should. I wouldn't have to clean the stove as often!

I've also seem this frying pan in the commercials, and at Macy's.

I think it's a Circulon, and you can see the commercial mainly on the Food Network.
