OXO Good Grips Frying Pan Review
Overall, we’d say OXO keeps thing simple with their frying pan. While it doesn’t offer as many fancy features such as a magnetic base, but in a way its a good thing. By focusing on the construction quality, as well as how the pan is shaped, its able to create a relatively cheap yet high quality product.
Oddly enough, we don’t spend a lot of time talking about the shape of a frying pan. I mean, it is a frying pan after all. Most merchants don’t put a lot of stock into how their pan shapes. Some merchants can’t even create flat frying pans for an even fry. However, OXO deeply considered how to shape their cookware.
The curve up from the frying pan’s edges is a bit more than what you’d find in a normal frying pan. This not only helps hold food inside, but it creates the perfect pouring angle anytime you need to pour out food, liquids, and even the oil. While it’s not something one usually considers before purchasing a frying pan, it is definitely a plus feature.
Overall OXO does a great job of offering multiples sizes and sets for about all its cookware. Whether you’re simply looking for a single frying pan, a couple pans, or an entire set, you should be able to find something that works for you here.
Options for a frying pan include 8″, 10″, and 12″. You’ll also be able to find square griddles, sauce pans, and more.
OXO made just not to cut corners with the frying pan handle. Its stainless steel dual rivets create a sturdy, almost unbreakable handle. The handle should be about the last thing to break on this frying pan.
Better yet, the grabbing surface of the frying pan is made out of heat resistant silicon, so it should be always safe to the touch.
Overall OXO uses a very popular base for as its construction material: hard-anodized aluminum. In case there’s any confusion, usually when manufacturers use this specific construction base, the results have been pretty good. There are a few exceptions of course, but OXO is not one of them.
The non-stick coating is also tripled reinforced to ensure the coating remains scratch resistant and durable for as long as possible.
Overall, the durability tests come in clean with the OXO good grips frying pan. Of course, this means you’re following the guidelines for just about any non-stick cookware. This includes hand washing and skipping the dish washer as well as conditioning the pan with oil from time to time.
If you can follow these simple guidelines, the OXO good grips frying pan should last for quite some time.
There isn’t much to concern yourself with the OXO Good Grips non-stick frying pan, unless you have an induction stove. This OXO frying pan is not compatible with induction stove surfaces. Otherwise, we’d have had nothing but success with this model frying pan.
After doing additional research across the web, there appears to be one uncommon concern among a very tiny percentage of buyers. For whatever reasons, there are a few different buying options that simply don’t get packed very well. This leads to some damages in the shipping process. Its something to keep in mind. That being said, places like Amazon are really good about setting up quick and easy returns for damaged units. However, if you’re buying elsewhere, I’d recommend researching their return history.
The OXO Good Grips non-stick frying pan may just be the best overall value in a frying pan. Its funny to say because we just recently reviewed the Anolon Hard Anodized Nonstick Frying Pan, and it offered a lot of the same construction qualities as the OXO model. We also thought great things about the Anolon model. However, overall, OXO Good Grips beats out the Anolon prices. My point is that the OXO Good Grips frying pan is great in quality and more than fair in its price point. It would be difficult to recommend another frying pan above the award winning OXO model.
