My new toy, what to cook first?

It's Farberware and made in China but it was free.
(Anyone remember S&H Greenstamps? And nothing is free.)

I usually pass on the freebies offered but this one looked like something I could use and didn't have.
 
Yeah it wasn't exactly free because I had to spend x amount to earn the stickers to get it at no cost but I was going to spend the bucks anyway.

Supposedly it cost $49.99 so paying nothing felt good.
 
I like it.

It fills a nich but now I need to find a place to keep it.
 
Any suggestions on what to cook in it to break it in?

Looks like it would be great for a stir-fry. Or a casserole that you start on the stovetop and finish in the oven.

Zagut, you are free to use Himself's favorite phrase - "If it's free, it's for me!"

Zagut, one thing for sure...you'll need to invite some company for dinner.

That's a honey of a pan. I think with those high sides it would be a great skillet to help keep your stove from "flying frying splatters". Say that three times quick.

Whoa, Zagut! Nice pan!

Thinking some fried chicken or some rice pudding might look good in it.

I find that nothing breaks in a new pan like popping some popcorn in it. Use cooking oil, flavored popcorn oil, or ghee. Get it near smoking hot, add popcorn kernels and salt, cover, and with the glass lid, you get to see the fun. Do you have kids, grand-kids who would love to watch the popping? plus, the popping corn spreads the oil all over the inside pan surface.

Why not break in a new toy with fun, make popcorn.

Nice pan, Z. You could cook up a good sized batch of marinara sauce to portion out in mason jars and freeze for the winter. Spaghetti anytime!

Good luck with it, Zag. Looking forward to pics of great stuff.

Our local Acme market (who still refuses to let me see the back room with the rocket skates and trebuchets) has a similar promotion. We just got the free Farberware 12" non-sitck fry pan.

It's realistically worth abput $40, and we had to spend $1600 over about 5 or 6 months, but without much effort we "earned" enough points. Tjat's about the only place we food shop now.

Now we only have a few weeks to earn something else. I might be buying a whole lotta toilet paper and paper towels just to get another pan.
