Product Review - Goodmans Multi Frying Pan

Product review by Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey of Goodmans Multi frying Pan

Cooking and baking are seen as therapeutic by many. Spending hours in the kitchen creating all sort of wonderful dishes and treats is a great pass time.  I think though we can all collectively agree that spending hours in the kitchen washing up after isn't!

As much as I am a fan of the one-pot meal, there are many dishes that have different components to them. One is a fry up, lunches with a selection of sides... I could go on! The difficulty with these is getting out all of the food at the same time so that it remains hot. You end up wasting loads of pans for small portions of food, and the sink piles up higher and higher! I need a pan that can handle more than one dish at a time.

Goodmans Multi Frying Pan Review

My prayers have been answered! I received a Goodmans Multi frying pan recently to review. The pan has 6 cooking sections so that up to 6 different foods can be cooked, boiled or fried at the same time. This pan is not overly proportioned but suitable for a meal for two to three. It has a non-stick coating and also comes with a wooden spatula.It has detachable cord, for easy cleaning.

I tried out the pan one lunchtime. I wanted to quickly whip up a lunch for the family. We decided to have vegan burgers with various vegetable sides. The pan came with some handy instructions with how to get the best use of it, and it couldn't have been easier to use! It works electrically rather than on the hob and warmed up nice and quickly. All it needed was a little spray oil and it was ready to go.
The food did not stick to the pan at all and each segment was evenly cooked. (watch the video)

Goodmans Multi Frying Pan

This multi frying pan is suitable for students as it doesn't take up as much as space and can make meals quickly and easily. It also helps with portion control! My daughter's hands are already itching to pack it away to her uni!!! I suppose its very time saving and she hates doing the washing up afterwards :D as this pan does it all in one!




And most importantly, it was so easy to clean! Just a quick wipe with a soapy sponge was enough. The pan is easily transportable, you may take with you on holiday if you are going for a self-catering option as it works electrically.

And these perfectly layered squares were prepared in Delicake No Bake cakeware!

Recently I was given the opportunity to review an Australian product, Delicake No Bake cakeware and I was happy to oblige. The good news is that it is available in the UK as well. The product is strictly for no bake desserts and treats.

After unwrapping the packaging, the first thing I thought was how expensive and durable the plastic for the cakeware looked. It is made of high impact polished good grade acrylic and is BPA free.  I was sent a Traditional Round Master alongside a Spatula and Knife.

The whole Delicake product came in only three parts, the base, a sleeve and a lid. so very easy to assemble and ready to use. The no bake cakeware was very user-friendly. I didn't need to waste time greasing pans or use greaseproof paper. Because the cakeware is transparent, I could see the layers as I was building them up, making sure they were perfectly even and well set, and to my delight, the cakeware is easily portable. No more breaking desserts when handling and transferring. The proof was definitely in the pudding when I took off the sleeve as everything was so well set, and the sleeve slid off without any struggle.

Once you have spent hours on a dessert and put it in the fridge you do not want other food odours to set into the desserts. Instead of using up rolls of clingfilm, I've finally found my new best friend. I tested out the bakeware in the fridge by not using any other clingfilm or containers and I could not smell/taste anything weird afterwards! Win! The knife and spatula were of a really good quality too. This no bake cakeware would be perfect for Christmas, Mother's Day or a Birthday gift! Think of all the yummy goodies you'll get to eat in return ;) Buy all these products online here in UK.

My only request is that in the future Delicake releases smaller versions of their round master so that sweet treats can also be made in smaller portions!
