A few weeks ago I received an email asking me if I would like to try out a new pan from Swiss Diamond. Now I may be a bit bias, but I happen to love all things Swiss. I did, after all, marry a Swiss man and reproduce 3 Swiss offspring!
The Swiss really know how to make pans. Everyone in my husband’s family uses the same set of pots and pans that they received when they got married including his grandparents that are 94 years old. Like the pans that they use, Swiss Diamond is made to last. The coating of each Swiss Diamond pan contains up to 200,000 real diamond crystals for a long-lasting non stick surface. Why diamonds you ask? Diamonds are naturally nonstick and durable. Diamonds are a better heat conductor than metal – Four times more conductive than copper, diamonds help distribute heat evenly across the surface of the pan. Diamonds also allow the pan to brown food like stainless steel, creating a “fond” that can be used for gravy – or easily washed away with warm soapy water.
I received the 3.7 quart Nonstick Sauteuse with lid pan. It is a wonderful “one pot” sort of pan. It will cook on any stove and can be used in the oven up to 500 degrees! Because of the nonstick diamond coating, it is extremely easy to clean.
Since receiving this pan I have used it countless times. It is rather large and came in handy while prepping for our “Friendsgiving” dinner last weekend. It was extremely convenient because I could make something on the stove then put it in the oven to finish cooking without having to worry about transferring the ingredients to a new pan and adding yet another dish to my every growing mountain.
Because I went all out on Friendsgiving, we will be keeping it simple this Thanksgiving! This Turkey Roulade has all of the components of the traditional meal all wrapped up in a little turkey breast package. It was easy to make and will be perfect for my family of 5 on Turkey Day!
I actually made everything in this one Swiss Diamond Sauteuse pan. From baking the cornbread and making the stuffing, to searing and baking the roulade, I used one pan! How cool is that!
Another thing I discovered while prepping this post was Better Than Bouillon® blendable bases. Better Than Bouillon® blendable bases are made from meat (or vegetables). This gives them a richer, more robust flavor than ordinary bouillons or soup bases. It is a great to have on hand stocks for stuffing and gravy! A flavorful stock and a “one pot” type pan is a must have for holiday cooking.
Make sure to check out the Swiss Diamond collection and add one to your Christmas list. Why ask for one diamond when you can get over 2,000! Enjoy!
