Rate this product

The Upan is a cast iron skillet with four U shaped compartments that are primarily meant for cooking sausages. There are other uses for this pan, but it is designed specifically to fit foods that are shaped the same way as a sausage. This gives the ability to cook the bottom and sides of your food simultaneously, saving you time in your day.

It can be used on any type of heat source, including campfires, BBQs, stoves, and even in the oven.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Upan is $49.95 and the shipping is FREE!

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buyupan.com

Concerns

  • Burns

    Cast iron carries heat from the pan all the way to the handle. It is important that users who are not familiar with cast iron know this so they don't inadvertently grab the handle without some type of protection.

    It's also concerning that the Upan is meant to be used outside on the BBQ around children that may think it's okay to touch the handle like with traditional pans.

    It is imperative to educate every one of the possible dangers of being burned.

Positive Points

  • Perfect for Sausages

    Is the perfect size to cook sausages. There isn't a better cooking tool that is able to evenly brown sausages as well as this cast iron pan can.

  • Customer Service

    If you have any questions or comments, it is easy to contact customer service via. email or phone from Monday to Friday 8:00 am EST to 8:00 pm EST.

  • Cooking Uses

    You can use the Upan to make any dish that is shaped like a boat or that fits within the slats. It is great for cooking sausages, pigs in a blanket, zucchini boats, stuffed jalapenos, hot dogs, bratwurst, kielbasa, bacon, and many other dishes!

    There is no limit to what you are able to create!

  • Can Be Used Anywhere

    The Upan can be used on any type of heat source. You can take it camping on an open fire, use it outdoors on the BBQ, stick it in your oven for baking and broiling, and even use it on your stovetop.

  • Cooks Food More Quickly

    Due to the U shape design, the Upan will be able to cook your food more quickly. It will simultaneously heat the bottom and sides of your items, providing you with even cooking that gets to the center of your food faster.

Features

  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

    If you are dissatisfied with the product for any reason, you can simply return it within 30 days of your purchase for a complete refund (excluding shipping and handling).

    It is your responsibility to pay to ship the item back and is highly suggested to purchase tracking.

  • Free Shipping

    For a special limited time, you will receive free shipping with your order! This offer can end at any time, so if you plan to purchase the Upan you should take advantage of it while it's available.

  • Pre-Seasoned

    The Upan comes ready to use and is already pre-seasoned with non-slip flaxseed oil. After use, it is important to continue to clean and season your cast iron pan to extend the life of it.

Negative Points

  • Heavy

    Cast iron is naturally heavy and will not be suitable for all users. Elderly people may have a hard time maneuvering and lifting the Upan.

  • Limited

    Although the Upan is excellent for cooking items like sausages, it is limited to only one type of food item. You won't be able to cook the vast majority of foods since they will not fit within the slats. It would have been great if the pan could have been made with removable slats so that it is more versatile.

  • Extra Camping Room Needed

    Due to the shape and intended use of this product, if you take it camping, you won't be able to use it to replace your other cooking pans. This can be inconvenient as it adds weight and takes up spaces in your bags.

  • Another Specialty Pan

    Since the Upan is essentially a specialty pan it is an expensive addition to your kitchen. There are so many different types of pots, pans, and appliances that are made for specific uses that this will be another one taking up space in your kitchen.

  • Specifications Missing

    The official website does not state the size of the pan or how wide each of the U shaped spaces is. This is an important piece of information that is missing when you're unable to see a product in person and are purchasing it online.

    Since it is made in heavy cast iron, it would also be useful for users to know how much the pan weighs.

  • No Cookbook

    Since the design of this pan is so unique, it would be helpful to users if a cookbook was included with your purchase. It may be difficult to think of creative ways to cook items, turning this into a sausage pan instead of a more useful cooking device.

  • Small
    This cast iron pan is not big enough to feed a four-person family or larger gathering. It only fits four sausages at a time, so you may need to cook your food in multiple sessions.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! The Upan will work to cook sausages and other food items that fit within the cast iron pan's four U shaped compartments. It will cook your food like any other cast iron pan, but with the added benefits of the side walls to more evenly brown all areas and disperse the heat.
How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Choose Your Heat Source

    First off you need to decide where you will be cooking. The versatility of this cast iron pan allows you to place it on the BBQ, campfire, stove or even in the oven.

  2. Prepare Your Food (optional)

    Depending on what you're cooking, it's a great time to prepare your food while your cast iron pan is heating up.

  3. Cook

    When your pan is heated and your food is ready, you can start cooking! Make sure to keep an eye on whatever you have in the Upan so that it doesn't overcook or burn.

  4. Clean and Dry

    The best time to clean your pan is right after use when it is still hot. Use hot water and a sponge or brush to remove any leftover food. If there are stuck on bits you can scrub the pan with a salt paste made of kosher salt and water.

    Make sure to thoroughly dry your pan with a towel or by leaving it on the warm stove.

  5. Season

    Using a cloth or paper towel, it's necessary to re-season your pan after drying. You can use the oil of your choice, adding a small amount all over the pan; buff the pan to remove excess oil so that it's ready for storing.
