I have been watching GoShop on Astro quite religiously lately, well you know the fun of seeing how they demo merchandise and how it could help ease your life, you get the idea..heh!
So after watching several rerun of this Strom Color Diamond Pan demo, I decided to buy it. At that time I got discounted online coupon of RM20, so instead of the retail price of RM149, I bought this for RM129 with free shipping in Peninsular Malaysia.
When I got the pans out of the box, I said to myself, now these look lousy. Seriously! It is very lightweight, like you are holding cooking pan toy. I am used to the heavy feel of hard anodized Tefal set so I assumed that these Strom pans would be a mistake to buy.
But once I started to use them in my daily cooking, I kind of love the lightweight quality. It’s easy to wash and rinse in the kitchen sink and the smallest pan is just the right size to make omelette or other simple dishes for my son’s meal.
The best part of these pans is the depth that they have. Usually imported pans like Tefal are wide and shallow and are not really practical for Asian cooking in general. But since this Strom Color Diamond Pan is originated from Korea, I guess they cater to the style of cooking and type of meals we Asians usually have at home.
For now, I am not sure how long lasting the diamond coating will be but so far it’s worth my money. I have cooked sambal, nasi goreng, stir fry vege, fried chicken pieces for nasi ayam in deep oil, well almost all the normal Malay cooking style and yes, it doesn’t stick and really easy to clean afterwards.
So, if you are still thinking whether you should buy this Strom pan set, I’d say go on and buy them. Have fun cooking great food for your family and friends!
