My Experience with the Mauviel M'cook 11" (8qt) Saute Pan with Lid
To pursue my passion in cooking I set off and read a bunch of cookbooks trying to satisfy my husband and my children with yummy treats daily. Instead I have learned that the best recipes are the one's that you dream up ( or tweak ) to make your very own unique culinary creation. In my endeavors and experiments with cooking, I have failed a few times, and at the time I couldn't help but think that the dish may have turned out better with the right piece of cookware
When I pulled this pan from the box, I was definitely impressed and taken back a bit by the appearance and weight of this pan! It feels and looks indestructible (a rarity these days) in it's construction. I decided to put an old creation to the test in the M' cook Stainless Steel Saute pan ( a scallop and linguine dish ) and the outcome was perfection! Not to say that this pan makes the cook better, but it definitely offers endless possibilities! The scallops cooked evenly this time around and the sauce didn't taste overcooked or slightly burned as it did the last time I attempted it. Even heating really is the key to an incredible dish. I don't like when portions of a meal taste wonderful and other's are over/under cooked, and with the wrong cookware, this can be the inevitable outcome ( regardless of your cooking skills). For a perfect even heat every time, I would highly recommend Mauviel M' cook cookware!
