About One Drop Fry Pan
Brought to you by George Forman, the One Drop Frying Pan is claimed to pull heat up through the center of the pan and circulate air for fast and thorough cooking, which means that you can fry some of your favorite foods, such as chicken, French fries, and more, with less oil than conventional methods. Ultimately, the manufacturer claims that the One Drop Fry Pan can give your food more taste with less fat, and will cook in about half the time.
In order to accomplish this, the center of One Drop Fry Pan’s bottom features a cylinder with ventilation holes that are claimed to pull hot air in, circulate it throughout the pan, and use convection to cook your food in less time, using less oil and preserving more of the nutrients. The One Drop Fry Pan’s removable magnetic handle is claimed to make it not just ideal for stovetop cooking, but also for cooking in your oven as well.
When it comes to cooking for your family, you want to give them the whole package: Fried foods that are not only delicious, but that are also healthy as well. Can the One Drop Fry Pan help you accomplish this? Consider the following:
The Difference Between Frying Using Air & Oil
First and foremost, although the One Drop Fry Pan claims to fry your foods, this isn’t actually the case. This is because frying involves transferring heat from the oil to your food, which then thoroughly cooks it and provides it with its delicious flavor. Hence, if you’re using air to cook your foods and no (or in the case of the One Drop Fry Pan, very little) oil—in fact, not enough to thoroughly coat your foods—then you’re not actually frying.
It’s All In the Flavor
With this said, we have our doubts that the One Drop Fry Pan will provide you with the same delicious texture as traditionally fried foods, although by heating up the small drop of oil inside and circulating the molecules around your food, it may provide you with similar flavors.
What Are Other Consumers Saying About the One Drop Fry Pan?
The One Drop Fry Pan is a very new product, and hadn’t had enough time to accumulate any online customer reviews at the time of our research.
However, we did learn that the product is manufactured by Shop TV Products based out of Deerfield Beach, FL, who holds a D rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite only having one closed complaint as of 12/3/14.
One Drop Fry Pan Pricing & Refund Policy
2 One Drop Fry Pans are priced at $19.95 plus $17.90 S&H, which come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges.
This means that if you’re dissatisfied with their performance and decide to request a refund, you’ll lose almost as much in S&H charges as you’ll receive as a refund. And this is before calculating how much it will cost for you to ship the pans back to the manufacturer.
With this said, in order to initiate the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-300-5499.
Can the One Drop Fry Pan Help You Cook More Healthy & Delicious Meals?
Chopping to the Point: Surprisingly, the answer to this question is likely yes. This is because your foods won’t be drenched in unhealthy grease, but could possible retain much of the flavor of traditionally fried foods. With this said though, you probably shouldn’t expect the One Drop Fry Pan to actually fry your foods like a traditional fryer, which might mean that you’ll need to change how you cook some of these types of foods.
However, if you decide to roll the dice on the One Drop Fry Pan, keep in mind that you might end up spending more money in S&H charges than you’ll receive as a refund if you’re dissatisfied.
