Review: GreenPan 4.5-qt Sauté Pan

I was not paid or otherwise compensated for this review.

A million years ago, I bought a cheap Kitchenaid cookware set because I was a poor college kid who’d rather spend her student loan on sushi dinners, acrylic paint, and vellum (I was going to school for Graphic Design) than supplies that would make me a better home cook.

Fast forward a million years and that same 3-qt saucepan got me farther than I ever thought it would. But, since I’m about to turn 42, I figured, “treat yo self!” and I traded that pan in for a brand new GreenPan 4.5-qt Sauté Pan.

Sparkly, like prom night.

This thing is magical; freshly-washed-sheets magical; brand-new-chef’s-knife magical; first-Spring-day-driving-with-the-windows-down, singing-your-heart-out magical.

Cheesy burgers.

Not that I need encouraging, but it makes me look forward to cooking! It heats evenly, makes quick work of enormous burgers, keeps shrimp in tact, and it lets veggies bounce around in oil.

Getting ready for onions.

While this single pan was the cost of the entire set that I’m slowly replacing, it’s worth the investment and I deserve it.

Perfectly sautéed eggplant.

Treat yo self.
