Frying in a pan
For perfect frying in a pan you need two different kind of pans. For meat and roasting potatoes it's best to use iron pans or cast iron pans. Fruits, vegetables and eggs can be fried more easy in a coated pan. A coated pan makes frying comftable but a not coated pan gives the food more taste, if you use them right.
Most pans can be used on all kinds of stoves. The pans we tell about can be used on gas, electric, ceran, infrared and induction stoves. Non stick pans from Gastrolux or Woll pans can be ordered for "usual" stoves and for "usual + induction" stoves.
Frying in a not coated pan like copper, enamel or cast iron pan gives a very special taste. Good professional cooks prefer this kind of pans.
If you aren't a professional, you have to decide by yourself. A good coated pan is easy to handle and you are able to fry with less frying oil. A not coated pan can give a better taste, if you learn how to use it! It is not hard!

Copper pans are used by the best cooks of the world. Copper is very fast reacting on heat and the best pan to be used on a gas stove. This pans are made by the Kupfermanufaktur Weyersberg in the southern part of germany. Some of the pans can be used on inductions stoves.
Very popular for the tast and healty food are cast iron pans like Le Creuset with enamel surface and Skeppshult pans without coated surface.
Cast iron pans have a very long tradition. This pans are getting better and better while you use them. But be aware, they have to be treated different to other kinds of pans. Cast iron pans will reward you with the best taste, when you have learnd how to treat them.

The non stick surface is called Biotan. The idea to the Titan Nano surface came from the Lotus bloom, where nothing is able to stick on.
The gastrolux pans can be put in the oven. The handles are oven proof up to 240 degrees Celcius or 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Informations about non stick surfaces
All non stick surfaces we know can get scratches. Most scratches come from a combination of high heat and wrong cooking utensil. Please don't us sharp things and metall items in non stick cookware. If you get a scratch in a Gastrolux pan, don't worry. The pans from Gastrolux have a very high quality and most scratches don't harm the effect of the pan.
Please don't use to much heat for frying and cooking. Meat and other food is best to fry between 150 and 205 degrees Celsius. If you use more than 240 degrees Celsius for a longer time, you spoil the food, waste energy and you may damage the surface.
A usual stove is used for the first minute or until the full heat is arrived on full energy. After that time you should reduce the energy depending on the food to 1/3, 1/2 or 2/3 of the stove capicity. This way your frying and cooking is perfect in the Gastrolux pan, the food is healthy and the cookware will be perfect for years!
You can use the Gastrolux pans with less or without fat. Please use a heat resistant fat for frying. If you use a not heat resistant fat it is not good for your health and for the pan, too.
On the fat you will normaly see instructions, if a fat is heat resistant. In germany you have to be carefull. If there is only a information, that the fat can be used for frying this don't has to mean, that the fat is heat resistant! When a fat is overheated you can see smoke rising from the pan.
The non stick surfaces are very easy to clean. We recomend the cleaning by hand for this kind of pans. It is better for the handle and for the non stick surface of the pan than cleaning in a dishwasher.
