If you're like us and have been cooking up a storm throughout the pandemic, it might be time to invest in some quality cookware. Especially now that the cult-favorite pan of the year, Material's Coated Pan, is back in stock after selling out for the third time since its debut in August 2019.
The five-ply, 10.5-inch pan has a core made of copper, which allows it to heat up quickly and evenly, and it has a mineral coating enhanced with a stainless-steel alloy that's completely nonstick. It's supposed to last 37 times longer than ceramic pans, which notoriously get sticky super fast.
Material's Coated Pan is also free of Teflon, lead, and cadmium. On top of it all, the pan has a gorgeous emerald-green hue that we find super attractive.
According to customer's reviews, it's universally praised for actually being nonstick (one reviewer said "It's a true, throw-an-egg-in-without-oil-and-watch-it-slide-out-perfecly pan") and for having a super sturdy weight without feeling unwieldy. Hunker's own Editorial Director, Laurie, deemed it the "BEST. PAN. EVER."
The pan retails for $95 and there's a try-before-you-buy option in which you can test it out for free for 30 days. Head here to learn more.
