As a busy mom, I’m all about preparing quick and easy meals — especially when they only require one pan. One-pan meals have become a life-saver on busy weeknights, but I always have trouble deciding on the right dish to use. I was extremely excited to hear about Anne Burrell’s 4.3-Quart Nonstick Cast Aluminum Casserole Pan because it seemed like the perfect solution to my dinnertime woes. The Perfect Pan for One-Pan Wonders - This dish can be used on the stovetop or in the oven, which helps to make dinnertime a lot less stressful.

When I took the casserole pan out of the box, I was very impressed. I noticed it was sleek, stylish and very lightweight. I was worried about its durability, but the product manual mentioned that it has a titanium reinforced nonstick interior, so I was eager to give it a try. Another detail that caught my eye was the beautiful tempered glass lid that included Anne Burrell’s autograph!

I put this pan to the test by making a vegetable stir-fry. I was very captivated by how quickly the pan heated up and withstood high cooking temperatures. When sautéing vegetables, the pan did not burn and it cooked food evenly. I love that the lid contains a silicone trim around the edge to help keep food warm. The design of the knob on top of the lid is oddly shaped, but it seemed to be easier to grab when placing or removing the lid.

Cleaning this pan was a breeze. Because of that awesome nonstick interior, no food stuck to the bottom, so I was able to clean it within a few seconds.

Even though this pan cooked food perfectly, I was not a fan of the handles. They were very hot to the touch, so I recommend keeping a couple of oven mitts handy. Even if the pan has been removed from the heat for a few minutes, the pan’s handles may still be hot, so take extra caution.

Overall, the Anne Burrell 4.3-Quart Nonstick Cast Aluminum Casserole Pan from HSN was fantastic! I was blown away by the nonstick interior and the design. Because this pan is very attractive, you can cook and serve meals in the same dish. It’s great for sautéing vegetables, baking a hearty casserole or roasting your favorite meats.
