Kitchen-Art non-stick pans from Galleria (moved from Ontario board)
Does anyone know anything about these Korean-made pans that you can buy at the Galleria supermarkets? They are non-stick, incredibly light and have a mottled (sort of granite-like) finish. I picked up a wok a few months ago and have been rather fond of it. I haven't used it enough to know how well the finish will hold up and would like to know whether this is just a cheap teflon rip off that's going to peel off in a few more months or whether it's some other type of non-stick finish.
My google skills have turned up nothing because "kitchen art", "kitchen-art" and "kitchenart" are incredibly generic terms that result in a gabillion hits.
If anyone knows anything and could share, I'd appreciate it.
Here are my comments from another reply%3
The best non stick frying pan, used at level 7 or 8 of 10 is the frying pans from Korea with a marble like coating. NO telfon.
vailible at T&T of all places. Goes on sale for $15 to $25 ish.
Try this with ANY other pan: Raw egg cracked in cold pan WITHOUT any oil or butter, turn heat to med or a bit higher, let seat till almost cooked or fully cooked. Maybe lift edges a bit and see if it comes of the pan WITHOUT any residues in the pan.
These Korea pans are amazing.
I have the wok type with a lid from something else, and that is almost the only "pan" I used in the kitchen.
I am on my second one, after about 3 years, because the last one was used on a gas stove and used too high of a temperature. It got warped too much to my liking and T & T had it on sale a few weeks ago.
Below is a cut and paste from an eBay ad.
