Your cooking may never be quite the same after trying the Noir Cast Aluminum Pans from Zavor.
It’s time to bring family and friends together again, and that means food. These pans were introduced last year but I never got a chance to try them until now. They’re lightweight cast aluminum (not heavy like cast iron). Perhaps more importantly, food doesn’t stick to them because of their Whitford Fusion TI Ceramic Coating. You can use them on any kind of stove, even an induction oven (to 55o degrees ).
This is all great, but there’s more:
The pans have long silicone easy-to-grip handles that are removable. This not only makes it easier to store them, but it also makes it much easier to put them in the dishwasher. That said, handwashing is still the preferred method for cleaning them. For fun, you can purchase additional handles in a variety of colors!
Cast Aluminum Vs. Cast Iron:
Aluminum cookware was originally created by machining each pan from a solid block of aluminum. Cast aluminum is created when molten aluminum is poured into a mold. However, casting creates a more durable product.
There are many chefs who extoll the benefits of cast iron pans because they’re very durable and they add small amounts of iron to your food. But cast iron is very heavy. By contrast, cast aluminum is user-friendly and light. It is also susceptible to rust and cast aluminum isn’t. Cast iron takes a while to heat up, especially on an electric stove. Cast aluminum heats up quickly.
Whitford Fusion TI Ceramic Coating:
Zavor Noirs’ Fusion TI Ceramic coating sound very techie. Actually, it is! Fusion® is a coating system based on sol-gel technology, made without PFOA and PTFE. It is a hybrid coating of organic and inorganic chemistry common to ceramic engineering. It works at extreme temperatures, curing at lower temperatures using less energy. This coating is reinforced with titanium particles to give it durability and resistance to scratching.
For the cook, what’s great about the TI Fusion Coating is that it creates a truly nonstick pan. In my test, I added some butter and cooked some fish. What stuck out for me is the Zavor Noir girl pan is the perfect grill pan for fish. I’m always afraid that fish will stick to the pan without a lot of oil, but this one The fish cooked quickly and evenly and slid right out of the pan. It did a far better job than my usual stainless steel pans. I definitely was impressed!
To test the Zavor Noir small 8″ skillet, I made a cheese omelet. Like the girl pan, this one cooked evenly and quickly. I removed the handle just to try it. The locking mechanism is sturdy, and all you really have to do is unscrew the handle from the back and lift it on or off. The handle fits all of the pans so if you purchase the colored accessories they’ll fit everything.
There are more Zavor Noir Cookware pans in the collection. The 7 piece set is $230 individual pieces range in price from $40-$100 and each colored grip/handle set is $46. If you try one, you’ll want them all! Visit the Zavor Website
