Mom-Finds: Lock & Lock Anodized Hard & Light Frying Pan

Last Friday of the month:  Mom-Finds / Cookware

As a home cook, I am the one who makes decisions when it comes to what kitchen appliances and cookware to purchase. Aside from aesthetics, the product features, ease of use, and price points are my main considerations before I buy. One of my trusted brands is Korean brand Lock & Lock. I've been using their food keepers and tumblers even before I got married, and in recent years, they also introduced several lines of cookware, a few of which I have also acquired and use on a daily basis. So a new addition to my "collection" is always received with much delight. My latest discovery is their Hard & Light frying pan which I am showing off here. =)

Over a week ago, I received this Hard & Light Wok to road-test. Siyempre I was over the moon when it arrived and I couldn't wait to try it. No cook can have too many pans, you know. =)

So what makes Lock & Lock's Hard & Light pans different?

Upon initial inspection, it looks just like any other non-stick pan, with a good solid base and secured handle, except this one is much lighter.  I found out that the main feature of this frying pan is how it was made.  Let's take a look.

What I like about Hard & Light pans:
  • Hard anodizing treatment makes pans more durable
    • Makes it virtually safe for users because no toxic chemicals/metals will leak to our food while cooking, even with scratches
  • Abrasion and corrosion resistant
  • Non-stick coating makes it very easy to cook with and to clean
    • I just rinse with hot water or soapy water and wipes off clean, no scrubbing needed
  • Lightweight compared to my other frying pans
  • PFOA and PFOS free (no toxic perfluorinated chemicals)
  • Perfect for pan frying, stir-frying and sautéing
  • No oil needed when cooking
According to Lock & Lock, the pans were tested with an abrasion machine which scratched the pans with 3~5 pounds of metal.  Scratches were visible but no aluminum leaked. This makes Hard & Light pans safer than other non-stick coated cookware.  Impressive! I like!!! =)

Like with all non-stick pans, getting scratches are inevitable. But with Hard & Light anodized pans, I have peace of mind knowing my pan is still safe to use despite suffering any scratches. Believe me when I say I've disposed quite a number of "damaged" non-stick pans already since I became a homemaker.

I already have two Lock & Lock CookPlus Ceramica pans and SpeedCook grill pan. Now, I happily welcomed this Hard & Light Wok.  I love to toss and flip when I cook, feeling pro Chinese chef, hehehe... but with this wok, I can easily do it without straining my wrist, kasi this is lighter than my other pans. Watch my video below and see how I did it.

Watch my demo here and see how easy it is to cook with and clean my wok.
One pan, two dishes back to back.

If you noticed in the video, I used the wok to sauté first -- I added very little oil just to sweat the onions before adding the hotdogs, then the sauce.  After that was done, I simply rinsed with hot water, wiped clean and proceeded to pan fry the burger patties without oil.  

This Hard & Light Wok is my most versatile pan yet. I highly recommend this to anyone who cooks! It's a wonderful house warming gift as well, and any homemaker would surely appreciate receiving one.
