This is a super efficient appam pan. It is just delivered to me and I washed it and seasoned it properly. I have made appams for breakfast and these became so good that I have made sweetcorn balls as an evening snack just to experiment with this pan and wow! This pan surprized me more than the first time. I am looking forward to make more guilt free reciepies.
Pre seasoned paniyarakal and paniyarams came out non sticky if you follow the instructions given by the seller.
Many ready seasoned products do need a bit of seasoning by the user, but this one needed very little. I washed it, filled it with water and boiled it (just to satisfy myself that any chemicals on the surface would be removed), then dried it and heated it with a fine coating of sesame oil. The first lot of appams i discarded. After that it functioned like a proper and well seasoned appam pan. The flat base makes it balance well on the stove. A sturdy nice product. It is on the smaller side though.
