Product Review & Giveaway

I’ve been given the opportunity to review a product of my choice from CSNStores.com; and too offer a similar product to one lucky reader of this blog.

Commercial Break:

CSNStores.com, is an online retailer of both home furnishing and house wares. They sell a variety of products including: Rachel Ray Cookware, pub tables, and counter stools. With the holidays right around the corner now is the perfect time to check out CSNStores.com.

Back to the Review:

I’ve wanted a small fry pan for a long time; but never really got around to getting one. We have several large pans, which are great for family meals, but nothing small. So when the CSNStore.com approached me about doing a product review I decided to try out the 8” Classic Clad fry pan by Henckels.



My pan arrived last Friday and since then I’ve used the heck out of it. It's the perfect size when cooking up meals for one. I've heated up thanksgiving leftovers; sauteed a small amount of veggies for my lunch and made myself a delicious breakfast omelet. Obviously it won't be my primary pan when cooking for my family but it is perfect when cooking for myself. I’m not sure how I managed without a pan of this size before now.

I mentioned above that I made an omelet using this pan. Normally I would cook eggs on non-stick; but for personal reasons I'm really trying to move away from using non-stick surfaces. With just a minimal amount of butter I was able to cook my egg on this stainless pan and didn't have any issues with sticking.

Commercial Break:

Henckels Classic Clad 8” fry pan is designed with ergonomic handles that are riveted for a secure fit and are hollow cast to stay cooler to the touch. Clad construction of heavy gauge aluminum and stainless steel layers for maximum heat conductivity and quick response to temperature adjustment. It’s also oven safe.

Giveaway:

I'm really happy with my new 8" pan and hope one of you will be too

Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite piece of cookware is. The giveaway will end on December 6th at midnight. The winner will be chosen randomly on December 7th and contacted by email.

  1. I so love stainless steel pots and pans. One year for Christmas I asked for new fry pans. Hubby begrudgingly obliged. I say begrudging because my DH thinks a women should not be given a gift involving work! I convinced him that cooking is not work and got a 12" open skillet and a 5 1/2 qt saute pan. Both are Cuisinart. The saute pan is my very favorite. I would so love to have a smaller one and your 8" is just what I had in mind! Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  2. I am laughing at your predicament. I also lack a small pan. You should see when I want to make one egg what I use. Stop laughing.

    The best item in my kitchen is my cookie scoop. You are laughing again.

    In terms of pots and pans, I have a 12 inch cast iron pan that goes from stove to oven that helps me with crowds. That is a pleasure to have.

  10. Wow I have a lot of Henckels knives, I didn't know they were making cookware now!
    My favorite piece of cookware is my little 6 inch egg pan. I usually use it for eggs but it's also great for single servings of salmon or chicken!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. What an excellent giveaway! My favorite piece of cookingware is my non-stick wok. It is super huge and I use it for just about everything.

    This looks like a great pan for cooking in small quantities.

  16. Like you, I'm also moving away from non-stick pan. Recently, I just bought myself a Chantal stainless steel 4qt soup pot/sauce pan. I am trying to do basically everything in it.

  18. I also have a favorite pan I use all the time. It's called the can't see pan. If I can't see it I don't have to cook. But the pan does look interesting. Enjoy.
