TYPES OF AMAZON BASICS PAN

Amazon Basics has released several types of pans, so that the user can choose the one that best suits their needs. In addition to Amazon Basics pans, you can buy other kitchen utensils: pots, dishes, cutlery, and kitchenware.

In its line of household products, three essential materials can be distinguished: stainless steel, cast iron and aluminum.

These three materials are perfect for the kitchen, as they withstand high temperatures, are durable and affordable for everyone. But all of them have their advantages and disadvantages, which we will comment on as we talk about the different pans they have for sale.

AMAZON BASICS STAINLESS STEEL PAN 

Stainless steel is one of the best materials for pans. This material can withstand high temperatures, resists corrosion and is shock resistant. Stainless steel pans are resistant to both heat and humidity, and durable. In addition, they are not very heavy, so they are handy utensils for everyone, even for those inexperienced in the kitchen.

The only downside to this material is that it doesn’t conduct heat evenly. But this has already been solved, incorporating the technology of the diffuser bottom, where copper or aluminum filaments are inserted, and thus, a perfect and uniform heat distribution is ensured.

Amazon Basics stainless steel pans feature a polished silver exterior coating , and a wide surface and flared sides for better food handling.

FEATURES

WOK AMAZON BASICS FRYING PAN IN STAINLESS STEEL

This frying pan has a diameter of 28 cm, and is an ideal utensil for steaming, making soups, sautéing, cooking … This Amazon Basics frying pan is made of stainless steel, thus ensuring its great resistance and durability. In addition, it has the same finish as the previous pans, polished silver effect.

  • Suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher, but it is recommended to wash it by hand, to keep the double anti-adherence layer in better condition.

AMAZON BASICS ALUMINUM PAN

The aluminum is one of the toughest materials to use in the kitchen, as well as the stainless steel. It is a material that combines great resistance with a very light weight. Aluminum is also a great conductor of heat, reaching high temperatures in a short period of time. This implies that the heat is maintained for longer, allowing you to save energy, since you can turn off the fire earlier, and your food will be kept warm.

The only drawback is that, when reaching high temperatures, it needs a coating (stainless steel, titanium …) so that it does not get too hot and can be dangerous. Coating in titanium or stainless steel is something that all aluminum pans include today.

This model of Amazon Basics pans uses aluminum as its main material, but they have a titanium plasma, to improve the resistance of the utensil. These pans have a traditional, black exterior finish . But, despite their traditional design and style, they include a novelty: the removable handle of the frying pan. This handle, contrary to what people might think when knowing that it is removable, is highly resistant: it supports the weight of up to 10 kilos. Thanks to this, space is saved in cabinets and shelves. They are ideal utensils for field trips, kitchens and places with little space …

FEATURES

  • Manufactured in aluminum. Detachable ergonomic handle, compatible with all pans of this model.
  • Available in various sizes : 20 cm, 22 cm and 26 cm.
  • BPA chemical free anti-adhesion layer .
  • Suitable for all types of cookers, including induction cookers.
  • Without the handle, the pans are dishwasher safe.

AMAZON BASICS FRYING PAN IN PRE-TREATED CAST IRON

The cast iron is one of the oldest materials, and most used, in the history of cooking utensils. Iron pans are highly resistant and durable, as well as being the most natural: cast iron does not contain chemical compounds in its manufacture, nor in its non-stickiness. One of the great advantages of cast iron pans is that they are non-stick by themselves.

The main drawback is that they must be treated and cared for throughout their use, since iron is not waterproof. This implies that this pan is not dishwasher safe, as it cannot be cleaned with abrasive soaps and gels. In addition, to avoid corrosion and oxidation, it is necessary to coat the pan with vegetable oil after cleaning, while it is still hot.

But with a correct treatment, which some already include prior to use, they are an ideal choice to approach traditional cuisine.

Its finish and design are the traditional ones: internal and external layer of black color. But its traditional design does not imply that it is a frying pan like those that were made in the past. These cast iron Amazon Basics pans come pretreated. This means that the consumer will not have to cure the pan with hot oil. This curing is the way the nonstick is formed.

In addition, thanks to its own non-stick coating, you can cook with a minimum of oil. Cast iron is a material that retains heat. This means that your food will remain hot, but without having to keep it on the fire for longer, saving energy.
