I love a good fry-up. Like, really like them. Sausage. Bacon. Egg. Mushrooms. Tomatoes. Black Pudding. Hash browns. Toast. All washed down with a mug of coffee, obviously! We don’t have them very often though because the kids don’t like them (weirdos!), and for two of us, it can be an awful lot of hassle for a meal. All that washing up of various frying pans can be a bit of a pain in the backside.
The Goodman’s Electric Multi Frying Pan from B&M Stores is an absolute game changer though. Gone are piles of greasy pans and pots. Instead, we have one (very easy to clean!) pan that does everything.
For £29.99, I was a bit sceptical. I love my kitchen gadgets as much as the next person, but was this going to be one of those things that were used once and ends up gathering dust in the cupboard until it gets given away?
Well, the answer to that is no. It’s been used more than a few times since we ‘ve had it. Graham made us a lovely breakfast on the weekend of fried eggs and beans on toast. The eggs were cooked beautifully in it without sticking at all (using just a tiny bit of spray oil) and the beans were done at the same time, without dirtying another pan. We’ve also cooked homemade burgers in it, and they were probably the best ones that Graham has made, which I think could be down to the Goodman’s Electric Frying Pan.
The fact that it is electric is another bonus for me. Graham pointed out to me that he could take it into the dining room, plug it in and cook it at the table if he wanted. At first, I didn’t quite get why anyone would want to do that, but I suppose it could be quite useful. I’m thinking more of its use if you were going on holiday and space was at a premium – in a caravan, for example, or even going camping, if you had an electric hookup.
I was a bit unsure of how you could clean it – after all, you can’t just chuck an electrical item in the sink (or dishwasher, if you have one!). We cleaned it with a soapy damp sponge and then wiped it over with kitchen cloth., which was much easier than washing up a load of pans!
Obviously, it is big, and finding somewhere to store it is a bit of an issue for us. At some point, I’ll be having a clear out of the kitchen cupboards to try and find a home for it when it’s not being used, but for now, it lives on our worktop. It’s also incredibly useful if you’re trying to watch your portion size – each section is relatively small so it is easier to keep an eye on how much you are cooking!
The pan costs £29.99 and comes with a wooden spatula. It’s available from B&M Stores.
