Blue Diamond is yet another nonstick cookware that has entered the market as a toxin-free option. Obviously, there is an increasing demand for this kind of cookware as more and more people opt for non-Teflon pans.
While the name Blue Diamond sounds exclusive and high-end, is it really as good quality as it implies?
The Blue Diamond Pan is a round-shaped, non-stick pan that’s infused with real diamond particles. You can use it to fry, sear, broil, roast and even bake almost any dish in your oven at temperatures up to 850 degrees Fahrenheit.
The pan is scratch-resistant, so you can use metal utensils during the cooking process, too, and even if you drop it on the floor, its solid forged base won’t get bent out of shape. Both the inside and outside of each pan are an attractive navy blue, while each handle is silver.
Blue Diamond Pan Features
The secret is diamond infused ceramic coating. The Blue Diamond pan is oven safe, they even claim it is safe to broil up to 850 Degree Fahrenheit. The makers of the Blue Diamond pan claim that their pan is 10 times stronger than the Copper Pans and last 10 times longer. It is also scratch resistant.
They demonstrate the non-stick features of the pan in the video – they sand-papered the surface of the Blue Diamond and the Copper Pan, the Copper Pan begins to loose its “copper” finish but the Blue Diamond pan shows no signs of trouble and when they cooked an egg on both the pans after the sandpaper treatment, the egg got stuck to the Copper Pan but slided off seamlessly off the Blue Diamond pan cooking surface.
They also whisked a egg in the pan to prove that it is 5 times scratch-resistant than the Copper Pans. They also melted a few plastic spoons in the pan to show how non-stick the Blue Diamond pan is.
Diamonds transfer heat 4 times faster than Copper for even cooking.
Blue Diamond Cleaning
Blue Diamond Pan is dishwasher safe but it is recommended that you hand-wash the Blue Diamond Pan with a soft sponge in hot soapy water.
How to prepare the Blue Diamond Pan?
Just put some butter uniformly on the pan.
The Blue Diamond has a “Stay Cool” handle.
Can you season the Blue Diamond Pan?
Nope, you should not season the Blue Diamond Pan.
Please use a little oil or butter (do not use spray oil) on the surface before heating. Do not heat the pan without food in it. Do not cook your food on high settings.
Blue Diamond Base
The Blue Diamond has a solid forged base that won’t let it warp or wobble.
How It Works
Each of these pans contains a ceramic coating infused with many tiny diamond particles. Since diamonds are the hardest material known to humans and are also great heat conductors, they make this pan durable, in addition to enabling it to cook your food quickly and evenly.
Copper-infused pans are of a similar non-stick nature, but this pan’s diamond-infused coating is five times harder, will last 10 times longer and will cook your food four times faster than a copper pan would. Plus, the Blue Diamond Pan has a super-solid base that will stop it from wobbling as you use it, and prevent its shape from getting warped throughout the cooking process.
Blue Diamond Pan costs $19.99 + $8.95 shipping for a total of $28.94. There is an optional double offer for $39.98 that includes free shipping. Each pan also comes with a recipe book that contains 50 recipes. There is an option to add a lid for $10 upon checkout. At the time of this writing, Blue Diamond Pan is not available in stores.
Can Cook Almost Anything
You’ll be able to use this pan to cook almost anything for any meal, including a round cake for dessert. If you’re interested in healthy eating, you’ll be pleased to know that you won’t need to add any lubricants to your pan, due to its non-stick nature.
If you’d normally use butter, oil or margarine to lubricate a cooking pan, you’ll avoid ingesting all the calories you’d get from any of those substances.
Safe With Metal Utensils
Metal utensils such as forks and spatulas can damage pans with less durable coatings, but no metal tool will damage the scratch-resistant Blue Diamond Pan.
That means you’ll never be restricted to using plastic utensils when you’re using this pan, or feel like you need to monitor where you place your metal utensils to avoid damage. If you do use plastic utensils, though, and one happens to melt, it’ll slide off your pan’s inner surface as quickly as any food item does.
This pan is incredibly heat resistant, as it can tolerate an oven temperature as high as 850 degrees without experiencing a warping of its shape or any other damage. Since most things need to be baked at around 350 or 450 degrees, and the standard broiling temperature is around 500 or 550, it’s unlikely that any recipe will be too hot for this pan.
Recipe Book Included
If you want to start using your diamond-infused pan, but you don’t know what to cook first, you’ll be able to consult the included recipe book for ideas. Each book contains 50 recipes that will be quick and easy for most people to make. The recipes can be made with other pans, but they probably won’t taste as good as they would if you were to use this one.
Square Pans May Hold More
Due to their shape, square pans can often hold a bit more food, even if they have the same measurement at their widest point as a round pan. Square pans also tend to be deeper than the Blue Diamond Pan, which is quite shallow. It would be helpful if a square version of this pan could be made available, and if at least an inch or two of depth could be added to it.
Then it would be better suited to accommodate traditionally thick dishes such as lasagna or macaroni and cheese.
It would also be beneficial if this pan could come with a lid with a handle, so you could place the lid on top to prevent spilling and then use the handle to lift it off.
Currently, these pans have no lids at all, which means that if you were to carry one across the kitchen, any contents within it could spill. The chances of that happening only increase due to the fact that there’s a handle on just one side, which may cause users to unintentionally tip the pan in the opposite direction.
