New kitchen essentials are a great gift for anyone that loves to cook or bake, and since top-of-the-line products can be pricey, it’s a great way to treat a loved one to quality cookware that will be loved for years. Pangea Sales Inc. is an Ontario-based distributor of high-quality and unique cookware and bakeware at discount prices including the fabulous Wilkinson PushPan bakeware and Woll Diamond Plus cookware. I recently received the Wilkinson 9” PushPan and the Woll Diamond Plus 9.5” fry pan to test out myself and I couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen.
I have been lusting over Woll Diamond Plus cookware for some time so I was especially excited to try out the fry pan. I have a love-hate relationship when it comes to cookware. I love the convenience of non-stick, as long as it’s a variety free of PFOAs, but I hate the fact I can’t use metal utensils with it. I invariably end up forgetting in the bustle of cooking, using metal on the surface and ruining it. On the other hand, as much as I love the durability and convenience of stainless steel, I hate how some foods stick to it so badly.
Woll Diamond Plus cookware gives me both of the things I love with nothing to hate. With a special PFOA-free diamond-reinforced non-stick coating, it isn’t just incredibly durable, it’s even metal utensil safe! I decided to whip up a stir-fry in the pan and while I did use a wooden spatula for stirring the vegetables, I used a metal spoon to serve the meal. Knowing I could do that without damaging my pan was like a chef’s dream come true for me! And cleaning this pan is incredible; literally nothing sticks to it so a quick wipe is all it takes to have it looking like new.
I also received the Wilkinson PushPan, which takes the concept of a springform pan to a whole new level. A good springform pan is essential for anyone that loves making rich, dense cakes such as cheesecakes or tortes. But the one downside of a springform pan is that it doesn’t seal tight, so fillings have to be of a certain thickness. Otherwise, the pan will leak at the edges and make a huge mess.
The PushPan actually seals to be watertight so that you can pour any type of liquid filling into the pan without worrying about leaking. And the push-up bottom lets me smoothly and cleanly remove even a tall cake from the pan with ease. I can’t help but think about how great this pan would be for a gelatine dessert; making a fancy layered treat is suddenly a breeze!
Both of these items have become kitchen essentials for me and I have a feeling I may be adding a complete set of Woll Diamond Plus cookware to my kitchen at some point in the future. Whether your passion is for cooking, baking or both, Pangea Sales Inc. has top-of-the-line equipment at great prices that will make your time in the kitchen a pleasure. Take a look for yourself and find some new kitchen essentials for you or someone you love!
