Pre lockdown Prestige kitchenware got it touch to tell me about their new range launching, a collection of eco cookware that rivals the best pans on the market in it’s budget. The range is made from recycled and recyclable materials (including the packaging) but what’s most impressive is that it has a plant based non-stick coating that is palm oil free. Oh and on top of all that for every pan sold tree aid will plant a tree!
Now all of the above would be completely irrelevant if the pan didn’t do a great job so I took them up on an offer to review the pan by putting it to use. I can absolutely 100% confirm that the pan does an amazing job at preventing anything from sticking and I’ll be replacing my pans (when needed) with the Prestige Eco range in the future.
I tried the pan out by making a traditional Spanish tortilla, something that is prone to sticking when turned out! Below is the recipe which I’ve used for years, it’s simple but tastes amazing. I served the Spanish omelette with homegrown (on the windowsill) rocket & some padron peppers blacked in the pan once I’d turned the tortilla out.
900g medium potatoes
100ml Olive Oil
1 large or 2 medium onions
sea salt & black pepper
Peel & cut the potatoes into thin slices. Thinly slice the onions.
Heat the olive oil in the Eco Pan.
Add the potatoes & onions to the pan with some seasoning & toss well to coat with the oil.
Reduce the heat & fry the potatoes for 20 minutes stirring occasionally until they are soft but not brown.
Take the pan off the heat & drain any excess oil (I used this to fry the peppers which I served with the tortilla).
Whisk the eggs & fold into the pan with the potatoes gently.
Spread the mixture across the pan evenly & return to the heat. Cook for around 5 minutes on a medium heat.
Put the pan under the grill in the oven for a further 5 minutes to cook the top.
Turn the tortilla out onto a serving plate or board & allow to cool then top with rocket and sea salt.
Pin for later…
Enjoy & let me know how you get on!
