1. SILICON GASKET
These red patented silicon gasket can effectively seals pan to prevent greasy liquid or smoke from escaping during cooking. And it also acts to prevent leakages during flipping of the pan while cooking.
Note: Over the time, this silicon gasket might expand a little so you can just trim it off the excess and push back firmly onto the groove, but ensure it does not black the "steam vent".
2. STEAM VENT
This allow excess steam to escape, maintain optimal pressure and cooking conditions inside the pan and allow the meat to be evenly cooked.
3. OIL RECEIVER
It collects excess water or oil condensation which flow from "the upper pan" when the pan is opened.
4. GROOVED RIM
A grooved structure helps the pressure function of the pan by fitting the silicon gasket into the groove which seals and lock the pan.
5. STAINLESS STEEL HANDLE HOLDER
It connects the handles to the pan.
refer to the photo above). With just "one-touch" the magnets it will lock both halves of the pan together tightly and sealed it before before any cooking or flipping.
To Lock - Push the two ends of the handles near and the magnetic buttons will snap closed with a distinct "click".
To Unlock - Simple insert you finger between the two ends of the handle and pry them apart and always open with both hands.
Whereas the "steam vent" also acts as the drainage access for the oil and steam condensed and collected on the Upper Pan.
TO CLEAN AND MAINTENANCE
In order to maintain the pan in good conditions, once in a while, take out the silicon gasket and clean with a soft toothbrush in order to remove food residues. Or every 4 - 6 month, rub vinegar or lemon juice on the inner non-stick surface and warm it over low heat for a few minutes, rinse and wipe clean with a damp cloth. And remember NEVER use metal spatulas or cooking utensils that may damage the non-stick surface of the pan.
Although there are quite a number of readers and friends asking me whether is it worth getting this Happy Call pan but for my view it always up to individual and their needs. Although this pan can do certain wonders but it also have negative area such as you won't be able to do stir-fry and get those "wok" smell like most of our wok do.
But in another way it does help to prepare some quick and easy healthy dishes such as pan-fry/grill fish and meat which reduce smokes and smells in the kitchen.
