Win a Cristel Space-Saving Fry Pan and Handles!

March 31, 2016

The idea of bringing a fresh meal together on the stovetop already denotes a feeling of ease: a flick of the wrist, a splash from the oil cruet—and, okay, maybe a sprinkle of cheese—and soon dinner is made. When you’re ready to tackle this kind of quick dinner, you want a pan that’s equally as pressure-free.

That’s where the Cristel Space-Saving Fry Pan comes in. Designed by one of France’s most popular stainless steel cookware brands—and made by them, in France!—this aluminum and stainless steel fry pan features removable handles: a long one for shake-shake-shake sautéing, and two short ones for transferring it to the oven with ease. You can even pop them off easily for extra-compact storage.

The pan's made of the highest quality stainless steel and is designed to work on all cooktops, including induction, to boot!

I love making egg scrambles! I usually sauté mushrooms, peppers and spinach. A great one pan meal, for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner!

Here's the deal. I could copy and paste a recipe from a reputable food blog, sprinkle in some French preparatory terms, and end it with an enthusiastic exclamation point to convey my optimism. But let's be honest. I'm making nachos. A large Cristel space-saving frying pan amount of nachos. Nachos. Nachos. Nachos.

With all of the cheap fresh asparagus abounding, I'd say a asparagus and proscuitto frittata- yup, breakfast for dinner!

The name is incongruent with the prompt's season, but "Summer Stew" from the brilliant Dinner A Love Story blog by Jenny Rosenstrach feels very spring-y when I can keep a window open to let in a breeze while I'm cooking
