Features

The combination of granite and aluminum ensures superior heat conduction, durability and prevents warping. While the ingredients of Granite Stone’s mineral non-stick coating are unknown, it can withstand constant abuse and metal utensils can be used when cooking. We do know, however, that the Granite Stone non-stick coating is PFOA-free.

Quality

The pan is very versatile and can be used on most hobs, except induction because it does not have an iron-based construction. This can be fixed by purchasing an induction disc separately. The pan can be used in the oven in temperatures up to 500F and can be used to cook and bake a variety of dishes including steaks, pizzas, and stir-fries. The pan is also dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning after cooking easier.

Its non-stick coating allows for oil-free cooking, but if you would like to flavor your food with butter or oil, you can. Using non-stick sprays on this pan is not recommended because the sprays burn at a low temperature and give your pan a rusty look.

Ergonomics

The handle is constructed out of stainless
steel and stays cool when cooking. Using an oven mitt when using the pan in the
oven is advised though.

Options

The pan is available in different sizes, including an 8-inch, 10-inch, 11-inch or 12-inch.

Durability

The majority of users have thoroughly enjoyed cooking a variety of dishes with their GraniteStone non-stick pan and found it very easy to use and clean. While many have enjoyed the results of the oil-free cooking experience, some customers found that they couldn’t dry fry anything, but need to add some kind of lubricants like oil or butter to ensure that nothing stuck when cooking. One customer was upset that their 12-inch pan’s cooking surface was only 11-inches big because of the 1-inch rim around the edge of the pan.
