Slip Stone Cookware Nonstick Fry Pan
This As Seen on TV 10-inch fry pan promises to cook delicious food without the use of fat, oils or butter. The pan has a four-layer stone-like surface that ensures easy cleaning, so you can wipe the leftover food remnants away with ease instead of scrubbing.
“I bought a set of these pans for myself about a year and a half ago,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I love them for sauteing, cooking pancakes or eggs, reheating leftovers, you name it. I bought this pan for my daughter because her ‘non-stick’ pan was in terrible shape. (I don’t think any of the non-sticks last very long) but Slip Stone is going strong for me. Follow these rules and it will last a long time:
- Only use silicone or plastic utensils…never metal
- Use low to medium high heat…never highest heat
- You can use a little oil or butter…never, never, never non-stick spray (Pam).”

They really last and I just wash it outside with dish soap and the water hose (a few of the little grass blades can come off so I don’t recommend in a sink or tub). I still have original patch and a couple more so I can rotate. I always tease we are the spokesmen for this product!” says a reviewer.

Flip Jack Pan

Check out this Amazon reviewer’s tips for using the As Seen on TV product.
“I’ve used mine for a year…love it! Tips for perfect results every time:
- Spray cooking oil on both pans before use. This changed a marginal experience to a great one.
- When flipping it over, lift straight up, flip your wrist quickly in a 180 degree arc while still lifting (uses centrifugal force to keep the food on the lower pan until you have completed the flip), and lay the pan straight down on the burner. This method works EVERY time. No leakage, ever.
- When done, turn the pan back over and slide the food onto your plate with a quick sideways jerk. It just slides onto the plate so sweetly because of the cooking spray. Never sticks this way.
No need for a spatula. I’ve cooked eggs, french toast, toasted cheese sandwiches, and eggs Mcmuffin many times.”
