Frying Onions

The sizzling sound of the pan is an obvious precursor to your mouth watering with excitement. The powerful fumes of butter and onion mixed together penetrate your thick nostrils and course into the pleasure center of your brain, turning your knees to jelly and calling every inch of your body forward into the kitchen. Heaven is nothing more than the unmistakeable fragrance of dinner. Frying pans were used in ancient Mesopotamia, ancient Greece (where they were called téganon) and Rome (where they were called patella or sartaginem). Pan derives from the Old English word panna. Traditionally, frying pans were made of cast iron. Although cast iron is still popular today, especially for outdoor cooking, most frying pans are now made from metals such as aluminium or stainless steel. A coating is sometimes applied to the surface of the pan to make it non-stick. Frying pans made from bare cast iron or carbon steel can also gain non-stick properties though seasoning and use. Frying pans with non-stick surfaces were introduced by DuPont in 1956 under the Teflon brand name. The durability of the early coatings was poor, but improvements in manufacturing have made these products a kitchen standard. Nevertheless, the surface is not as tough as metal and the use of metal utensils (e.g. spatulas) can permanently mar the coating and degrade its non-stick property.
