Regis Stone Non-Stick Breakfast Challenge

Regis Stone Non-Stick Breakfast Challenge – Apple and Cinnamon Pancakes

JML challenged me to create a healthy fried breakfast using their new Regis Stone non-stick pan. I’ve heard about non-stick pans before but to be honest they never seemed to work as advertised, so I was really keen on trying Regis Stone.

I wanted to prepare a full English breakfast but then I thought to myself “hmmm, sausages have fat in them so my frying will not really be fat free, therefore I will not be able to truly test the new frying pan”… I could of course cook the eggs first but it would be such a waste of all that tasty nice sausage fat…

This led me to a new cunning idea – I will make Apple & Cinnamon Breakfast Pancakes! No fat in them so I will actually be able to make a fat free breakfast and thus test if the pan is really non-stick.

So how did it go?

Perfectly! I am quite amazed by the Regis Stone pan. I must admit I was tempted to add just a drop of oil… just in case… but I didn’t. My pancakes were cooked without any fat whatsoever and the pan didn’t even require a wash afterwards.

If you would like to try my breakfast pancake recipe, this is what you need and how you make them.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2l milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 300g flour
  • 100g white sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 2 apples
  • Icing sugar for serving

Method:

Separate the eggs whites from their yokes.

Place the whites in a separate bowl, ready for whisking.

Place the flour, sugar, salt, soda, cinnamon, milk and both yokes in a large bowl and mix all ingredients with a whisk until everything is well combined.

Wash, peel (or not), core and dice your apples. Add them into your main mixture.

Whisk the egg whites until they are able to form firm peaks and then gently fold them into the main mixture with a metal spoon.

Now, you are ready to start cooking.

As I used a Regis Stone pan, I had no need for any fat. I just grabbed a good spoonful of my mixture and place it in the preheated pan. It should take you just over a minute for each side to cook and brown nicely.

Serve warm after dusting with icing sugar.

Enjoy!

Oh, and if you are in need of a new frying pan, I would highly recommend Regis Stone! We are going to order a large 28cm one. This is really one amazing frying pan!

Review – Green Earth Frying Pan from Ozeri and the Perfect Eggs

As we cook a lot at home having good quality “tools” which will allow us to do this job better is very important. Mark is a huge fan of cast iron. I must admit they do work well but they are so heavy. Cooking in it is one thing but then you have to wash it in a specific way and most important, and tiring, is having to move it from place A to B. Sometimes when Mark is not home and I would love to have something quick and simple to eat like an egg and bacon roll, when I think about all the hassle which comes with using cast iron pan, I am suddenly not so hungry anymore… So when I was offered to review something from Ozeri, I picked a frying pan, which was a purely selfish choice. I thought that I can finally have a nice frying pan, in which I can just cook without the workout for my hands and arms.

So my pan has arrived :-)
So my pan has arrived 🙂

It was extremely well packed – in a polythene bag and in a stiff cardboard box – very good protection against any damage in transit. And you get full instructions and a warranty with it too. It has a good weight – not too heavy and too light; you can for sure tell that you have lifted something (I really hate light flimsy cookware). It looks great and it feels good in your hand too.

There is a lot of information about the product on the box.

Let’s go through the claims and see if they match up with reality:

EASY TO CLEAN – true, I tried it and there is no scrubbing required, believe me, warm soapy water and the soft side of a sponge and done.

SUPERIOR NON-STICK PERFORMANCE – true, tried it and you will see for yourself if you keep reading.

DURABLE SCRATCH-RESISTANT CERAMIC, AS FOUND IN NATURE – I didn’t manage to scratch it so far, but I am careful, so with this point let’s take a leap of faith.

COMFORTABLE SILICON COATED HANDLE – true, it is actually very comfortable to handle and pleasant to the touch. It doesn’t get hot and it is safe to handle at any point.

INDUCTION STOVE SAFE – true, according to magnet test I performed (if a magnet will stick to the bottom of your pan, this pan will work on an induction hob).

WITH GREBLON CERAMIC COATING FROM GERMANY – not sure if it is from Germany but our pan had a Greblon sticker on it so I believe this is what it is coated with.

NO HARMFUL HEAVY METALS OR CHEMICALS; COMPLETELY ECO-FRIENDLY – I believe this is due to the fact that ceramic coating does not emits any harmful fumes. This pan is 100% PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) and PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid) free.

So here you go. Pan does as it is stated in the box 🙂

For me the ultimate test of a new frying pan are fried eggs. If I cannot make a good frying eggs on my pan, this pan is totally no use to me. So I got cooking!

All I added it was a tiny spoon of butter

My eggs came out perfect. And to my surprise so did the pan. It was clean, nothing stuck to it, all I had to do was wipe it clean – no scrubbing or even washing was needed. And if you wonder what I did with my “test eggs”… wonder no further…

Perfect eggs for a perfect roll

So what is my verdict on my new 20cm Ozeri Green Earth Pan?

Love it! It looks fantastic, it performs without any problems and it is great value for money (£24.95 delivered to your door). I already spotted that they also have a 30cm wok on offer – I must get myself one, as doing anything with Mark’s 40cm cast iron one it is not an option for me.

So what do you think? Do you like an idea of this eco-friendly pan?
