Blue Diamond Pan Review
The Blue Diamond Pan is a 9.5″ nonstick and scratch resistant pan that has an outer coating of ceramic which is enhanced with diamond. The advertising claims that the Blue Diamond Pan is 5x stronger, lasts 10x longer, and transfers heat 4x faster than the average pan. Besides being able to fry with the pan, it can also be placed in the oven or broiler, and can be heated safely up to 850 degrees.
Many of these nonstick cookware products are impressive at first, yet are likely to deteriorate with continued usage. This is made worse by exaggerated advertising demonstrations that I have found difficult to successfully recreate. Through experience, I’ve found that babying the nonstick coating of these new pans will help them last longer, but the majority of people handle them like a regular pan and subsequently discover the nonstick surface rapidly degrades. There are some instructions on how to care for the Blue Diamond Pan in the FAQ of the product website. They suggest never allowing the pan to smoke or burn (always using it on low to medium heat), using a minimal amount of oil or butter while avoiding sprays and extra virgin olive oil, and hand washing in soapy water with a soft sponge (despite the claims that the pan is dishwasher safe).
As you can see in the video below, I purchased two of these pans and used one according to the advertising demonstrations, and the other more closely aligned with the included instructions. I found that the nonstick surface washed quite easily no matter how much I scratched it or caked materials onto it. As far as food sticking without any oils at all, that seemed to vary based on the item in the pan. Egg, for example, will still stuck to some degree, but the pan still cleaned up effortlessly. Melted cheese was no problem, nor were shrimp or chicken breasts. Surprisingly, using sandpaper on the pan’s surface barely made a scratch, although using a mixer (as depicted in the commercial) seemed to cause the most damage. Hitting the bottom of the pan with a hammer caused an obvious dent.
Despite a few mixed results when pushed to extremes, when I followed the instructions (low to medium heat, hand washing, using non-abrasives), the Blue Diamond Pan delivered impressive results. Nothing stuck, and it cleaned up quite easily. My only real complaint about the Blue Diamond Pan, other than the advertising demonstrations, is that the handle had a tendency to get quite hot.
In the end, if you ignore the advertising demonstrations and stick to the instructions, I think you may actually find this to be one of the better nonstick pans among the recent As Seen on TV offerings.
