Heating up the kitchen

ThermospotThermospot: Ready to use

The kitchen’s always hot, even if your dating life isn’t.

We partnered with chef Franco Noriega and dating expert Lindsey Metselaar to get people in the kitchen and out of their comfort zones, with a little help from T-fal.

You guys all know by now my love for skillet meals. I love creating 30 minute recipes that are made in one skillet and require little clean up, but I think one of the most frustrating things about cooking on a skillet is wondering if it is hot enough. This is why I love T-fal’s new HeatMaster 10” Fry Pan! It is so important to have a properly heated pan, and this new one from @tfalusa combines three culinary innovations. Sapphire infused non-stick, Thermo-Spot technology, and a unique stainless steel base that has superior heat distribution. I love that this pan has three layers of scratch resistant, non-stick coating that is enforced with sapphire. Nothing is sticking to this pan while I cook! And cleaning it is super easy as well! The Thermo-Spot technology is so incredible. No more waiting or wondering if your pan is the right temperature. The spot will become bright red when it is ready to start cooking. The right temperature takes a meal from good to great and helps to prevent sticking, cooking food evenly, and makes easy cleanup!

I'm excited to be hosting a giveaway with the @tfalusa HeatMaster Fry Pan, that you’re definitely going to want to win to make this crispy gnocchi and cheese skillet! The pan’s stainless-steel induction base radiates heat evenly to give me perfectly crispy gnocchi throughout the skillet! And the sapphire-infused non-stick coating lets everything just glide off the pan, and cleanup is a breeze! ‘GIVEAWAY: Here’s how to win one of your own (US only)!

Shrimp Mussels, Scallops with fresh veggies. Combine that with a little from-scratch spicy stir fry blend, stir fry it in my new @tfalusa sapphire infused HeatMaster 10” Fry Pan, and I’ve got dinner won! Nothing burned in this dish thanks to the pan’s unique stainless-steel induction base that radiates heat evenly and consistently. The pan even has 3 layers of scratch-resistant, non-stick coating that is reinforced with sapphire, which leaves nothing sticking to the pan! Not to mention, T-fal’s patented Thermo-Spot technology in the middle of the pan lets me know when the pan is heated just right.

Tips for heating up the kitchen


By Chef Franco@franconorhal


    Impress any date by suggesting to cook instead of going to a restaurant. A homemade meal will not only guarantee a fun activity together, but also give you both the space to feel more comfortable, interact and really get to know each other.

    Is your partner’s love language “quality time?” Being present in the moment is one of the most valuable things nowadays. We all find the need to be connected all the time, but to be truly connected in real life, you may need to disconnect from the virtual world.
