They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but who knew it could make the greatest cooking surface ever? It's called the Yoshi Blue Diamond Skillet, the makers claim it's made from pulverized diamonds and nano-ceramic. It doesn't stick so it guarantees to stay looking like new. No matter what you cook with it cleans up just like that.
Head chef at the Whistle Stop Jimmy Slater says that genuine diamond promise may be a stretch. "It may have diamond dust," says Slater.
Every morning Jimmy cooks, fries, and scrambles 150 eggs and 10 pounds of potatoes. He likes that the Blue Diamond needs no oil, fat or grease. Oil is a part of his daily routine and he hopes the absence of it will save him time in the morning. "I fire the pan and get it hot, then add the oil. But I have to use a lot of oil, in my pans and then drained oil off before I serve it out. Once an egg sticks it's ruined. You can't send out eggs that are burned. It'll back me up, I have too many people they want to eat," says Slater.
First up, Jimmy wanted to test out a scrambled egg. "It's doing really good, normally eggs would stick," says Slater. Next, up he tried the hash browns. "Potatoes are nothing but 80% water, they tend to stick really bad, it is cooking slower, it's not wanting to brown it," says Slater.
Finally, Jimmy wanted to give the skillet it's most important test of all. "We're gonna crack an egg in the skillet, it's gonna be over medium," says Slater.
At this point, the Blue Skillet was not disappointing. "This is really nice, I'm impressed with this skillet," says Slater.
But as the egg continued to heat, and Jimmy attempted to move it. "It's trying to stick, see that ruined my egg. There's nothing i can do with that egg," says Slater.
In your opinion is this a deal or a dud? "It's a dud," says Slater.
The skillet will cost you $20 dollars.
