I’ve been looking for today’s heirloom skillet, a modern equivalent to the old dependable cast iron kind, a pan that will get old with me and my kids, that I can hand down through the generations. Well, I think I may have found one.
I know I have a lot of pots and pans. Some people may say I have enough, but I love each and every one. So when I was asked to review the Anolon Novelle Copper 12 inch skillet, I immediately agreed. I hadn’t yet tried a skillet with a stainless steel copper encapsulated base so I was curious what the fuss was all about. And, since I was given the skillet as a gift I had nothing to lose. Plus, one of my lucky readers will get one too! I love GIVEAWAYS.
I tested the pan on my family’s favorite night of the week — Taco Tuesday — to brown the ground beef. I was impressed by how evenly and thoroughly the meat cooked in the Anolon skillet and in a very short time. It seems that jazzy copper strip isn’t just for looks but is a key design element in helping distribute the heat during the cooking process. Since taco night, I’ve browned onions and garlic, sautéed vegetables and cooked various meats in this skillet without disappointment.
So it’s two thumbs up on the Anolon Novelle Copper Skillet. I like it so much that it’s now hanging on my pot rack for easy access. It’s my new go to skillet! If you’re in the market for some new pots and pans, definitely take a look at the Novelle Copper line! It retails for approximately $80.
