The main attraction of the pan for me is, cooking on both sides just by flipping the pan, making frying fish & eggs an easy task. However, there were couple of considerations:
- Will the Ocher pan be too heavy for me to handle?
- Since the Ocher pan is thicker, there’s more room for food. But then again, will the extra space be a concern when flipping the pan? I was concerned that there would be too much movement inside the pan during flipping.

As claimed, the pan requires little or no oil. The skin of the fish was crispy while the meat, tender. Although it wasn't easy to flip the pan with the eggs, it was still a success. The entire omelette was intact & came out nicely. The first dish also turned out delicious.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get very honest answers from those who own the Ocher pan & their feedback were vague. It wasn’t exactly trouble-free when flipping the pan. The fishes “swam” inside the pan & the omelette “swirled” when I flipped the pan due to the extra space in the pan. The double pan may do a better job as there’re less room for the food to move around.
Unless you’re cooking a big amount of food that requires a bigger pan, get the red double pan for better handling.
Well, I’ll be posting the recipes soon & experimenting more. For those who have not heard of this wonder pan, here’s a clip I found on YouTube:
