Tip of the Week: Choosing the Right Pans
When it comes to pans, size matters.
The next time you cook, don’t just grab the nearest pan. The size of the pan has a direct effect on the outcome of the dish.
When a small frying pan is crowded with too many pieces of meat, you will not be able to brown your food properly and achieve a nice crust. Alternatively, using too large a frying pan with just a few pieces of meat will dry up all the glorious pan drippings. To achieve delicious results, be familiar with the capacity of the pots and pans in your kitchen arsenal, then take the time to match the size of the pan with the quantity of food to be cooked.
