The Radical Pan is a sauteing pan that's been made for the stovetop. Unlike most pans of this nature, it's been outfitted with a high lip on the side opposite the handle. This lip is meant to help users toss food and sauces without running the risk of the items falling out of the pan. Aside from gas, induction and electric stovetops, it's claimed that this pan is oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and it comes in three different sizes.

The Radical Pan comes in three different sizes, including one with an eight-and-a-half inch diameter, plus two larger ones with diameters measuring 10.2 and 12 inches. You can get a pan in your choice of size on its own, or obtain a set of pans in all three sizes. If you're going for a single pan, the size you choose should depend on how much food you typically cook for yourself or your household.
Each pan's anodized aluminum handle has been designed to stay cool to the touch, even if you've been using your pan for a good while. These handles are also made to be comfortable to hold, regardless of whether you work primarily with your right or left hand. They're attached to each pan with double rivets, so it's unlikely that one of them will fall off while you're cooking or moving the pan from place to place.
The triple-layered inner coating of each pan, which is free of the potentially harmful chemical compounds PFOA and PTFE, has a non-stick nature. That means your food will quickly slide out of your pan when it's ready to be served, without the addition of cooking spray or a possibly calorie-dense butter or oil. If you want to cook a second dish in your pan directly after the first, you'll be able to wipe virtually any bit of food from the pan with a damp cloth before starting anew.
Every Radical Pan's body is hard and anodized in its entirety, which will help prevent it from getting scratched or corroded and thereby wearing out quickly. Moreover, each pan has an anodized aluminum plate as its base, which will heat up quickly and help distribute heat evenly through the pan, so there are no super-hot or super-cold spots in your food. The body of each pan is completely free of toxins, such as PFOS, lead, and cadmium, so you won't need to worry about exposing yourself or those you cook for to toxicity by using it.
The Radical Pan hasn't been designed to cook just one type of food, such as meat, effectively. Instead, you can use it to saute a wide variety of foods, such as vegetables with sauces, meat in its own juice, fish and even some chopped-up fruits. If you've got pans in all three sizes and four burners on your stovetop, you may want to use the largest one for meat or fish and have the other two cooking side dishes simultaneously.
Foods that are sauteed are typically cooked with a high amount of heat, but little fat, so by obtaining such an effective sauteing pan, you may cause yourself to eat low-fat dishes more often. Furthermore, although you can lubricate Radical Pans if you'd like, you don't have to, so if you normally cook with butter or oil, you can avoid the calories you'd get from those things. Even if you don't need to lose weight, consuming lubricant-free veggies and fruits that you've cooked in this type of pan may improve your health and the health of those you cook for.
Each Radical Pan is dishwasher safe, so when you need to clean yours, you'll be able to load it into the dishwasher (if you have one) or wipe it clean. If you want to or need to go the wiping route, you won't have to scrub the pan's inner surface for several minutes or more, because of the non-stick inner coating. This coating should allow any dampened food residue to slide off in just a couple of minutes or less, so you won't have to work your fingers too hard!
It's great that the handle attached to each pan can be held comfortably by right-handed and left-handed people, but having a handle on each side of the pan might also be helpful. While you may not need a second handle while you're cooking, being able to grab onto one in each hand as you carry your pan to a table or countertop could help prevent spills. As the pans are now, a user could accidentally tip their pan to the side the handle is on if they're not careful, and cause the food to spill out that side.
It might also be beneficial if this pan could come with a clear lid with a handle that could be placed on top of it. When your pan's on the stovetop, you may not care about this, but it might be a handy option when you want to use your pan in the oven. A lid like this could certainly help sauces and other liquids from splattering all over your oven—and thereby prevent you from having to take on an extra cleaning job.
Round is a traditional shape for a pan, but recently, many people have noticed that square pans that look about the same size can hold just a bit more food in their four corners. Unfortunately, there is no square pan in the Radical Pan collection, so if getting as much food into one pan as possible is a priority for you, this collection may not be the best choice. You may be more satisfied with a square pan or a set of square pans instead.
This pan's anodized aluminum base will make it heat up more quickly than other pans without such a base are able to. As a result, you won't need to spend as much time standing around your kitchen waiting for your pan to be ready to cook your food. You'll be able to get it cooked and onto your table at a faster rate, and due to your pan's non-stick, dishwasher safe nature, clean-up will go faster than it would otherwise, too.
Radical Pans are versatile and strong, but not so versatile and strong that they can be safely used on any sort of outdoor barbecue grill. If you were to try to do so, there are no guarantees that your pan wouldn't end up mildly or severely damaged. It's best to keep this one indoors if you want to preserve its life and its capabilities.
