Donít Buy It, Until We Try It: Yoshi Blue | VideoAmy Fox | 2/1/2013
In this weekís "Donít Buy It, Until We Try It," I tried out Yoshi Blue non-stick skillet.
When you go to cook certain foods, like eggs and pancakes, you canít forget to pull out a can of cooking spray to grease the skillet. But, then you donít know if youíve used too much or not enough spray. Well, the Yoshi Blue may work. Itís a non-stick skillet made out of, yes, diamonds. You can even throw it in the dishwasher. What could be easier, right?
But, does it actually work? Well, ďDon`t Buy It, Until We Try It."
Sarahbeth Ackerman and I are by no means professional chefs, but we do enjoy spending time in the kitchen. With crazy schedules, making breakfast can sometimes be another chore.
"With my daily routine, I`m pretty busy a lot in the morning. So, instead of grabbing the butter or the cooking grease or anything, I could just put the pan down and start my breakfast before I go to work," said Ackerman.
We wanted to try out Yoshi Blue non-stick skillet for ourselves. While we heated up the burner, we cracked open a few eggs and whisked them. Then, it was time to pour them into the Yoshi Blue.
Ackerman said, "Right now, it seems that itís just kind of lying on top here. I donít know if itís not hot enough yet."
As we began to cook the eggs, some of it began to stick to the pan.
"It kind of seems that the eggs are sticking all over the pan like a normal pan would actually do. So, I mean, it seems like a fine pan as far as itís deep dish and you can put stuff in it, but seems like itís sticking," explains Ackerman.
Once the eggs were cooked, then it was time to flip the eggs in the Yoshi Blue skillet like they advertise on TV. While it was pretty easy, there was still some debris left in the skillet.
Finally, it was time to clean up our mess with a paper towel.
Ackerman said, "Well, it was easy clean up. But, obviously, I still have to wash it."
So, is Yoshi Blue our new best friend in the kitchen?
"I honestly think this is like any other pan that you could probably purchase, probably a lot cheaper," said Ackerman.
We just got done cleaning up the Youshi Blue skillet. While it was easy to use and clean up, some of the eggs still stuck to the skillet.
Youíre probably going to want to keep using a regular skillet. This week`s "Don`t Buy It, Until We Try It," earns a thumbs down.
