Borosil’s stainless-steel pan on Kitchen toolkit episode

This is one of the most versatile pans out there. Watch the full episode to find out if it’s a good fit for your kitchen or not

One utensil I was tasked to test and review while shooting ‘The kitchen toolkit by Beautiful Homes’ was a stainless steel pan by Borosil. Stainless steel pans should be our go-to choice when looking to cook something that is acidic in nature, since cast iron, copper and brass pans can be highly reactive to such cooking. 

Therefore, the first thing to pop into my mind was the Sev Tameta nu Shaak. While I usually make it in a traditional clay cookware, the pan worked effortlessly for this recipe too. Especially when paired with hot rotis made on a clay pan.


Before I get to cooking, I like taking my time acquainting myself with a new vessel, but a stainless-steel pan is an easy one to conquer. It doesn’t need prep like cast ironware that needs to be seasoned beforehand. Here, you just wash up and start cooking.

The recipe, sev tameta nu shaak, holds a special place for me, it’s what my school tiffins often came brimming with, paired with either chapatis or rice. And I thought it did quite the job in helping me prepare the dish. The tri-ply quality of the utensil proved efficient in heating up the pan evenly, and the non-stick surface rid me of the effort of having to continuously stir the gravy. Right from cooking my ingredients in it, to serving food straight up in it (on a busy day), the Borosil stainless steel pan is versatile.

When Sonal Ved was tasked to test and review a stainless steel pan by Borosil, the first thing that popped into her mind was Sev Tameta nu Shaak, as it holds a special place for her by evoking memories of her school days. Here, she talks about how the Borosil stainless steel pan is versatile to help you on a busy day!
