First job is to get yourself a good decent non-stick frying pan that's up to the job. This rather nice looking frying pan from Judge Cookware Continental range is the very fellow. This pan heats up quickly making it perfect for pancakes. Of course this frying pan isn't only for pancakes. Great for everyday use and perfect for that Saturday morning bacon sandwich or a good fry up.
Available in 3 sizes (20cm/24cm/and 28cm) personally I think the 24cm is perfect for pancakes.
18/10 Mirror-polished stainless steel and the interior in non-stick.
It's oven safe too up to 180°C/350°F/ Gas Mark 4 which is brilliant news (means you don't have to transfer to another pan to finish certain dishes in the oven) and it's also dishwasher safe but so far I haven't put mine in the dishwasher as it really washes up very easily in nice hod sudsy water. Rinse and dry and it's good to go. I love 'Stay Cool' black phenolic handles.
