How to check if the pan is hot enough

hot panI regularly mention in my posts on methods to check if the pan is hot enough to proceed, so I figure I will start a “tips” category that I can just refer to in the future. I hope you can find helpful tips in this section.

Tools:

  1. Pan/skillet
  2. Any cup

Ingredient to use:

Water

Prep Steps:

Prep.1

cook_1

Using a cup, add some water into the pan/skillet.

Prep.2

cook2a

Put the pan/skillet onto the stove, turn heat on high. Water will start to bubble.

Pan/skillet is hot when water is completely evaporated.

Alternative method:

If using oil instead of water, pan is hot when you see light smoke coming out of the pan/skillet.
