Bottom Line: Is One Drop Fry Pan Worth The Hype?
One Drop Fry Pan may allow you to cook food with less oil, resulting in foods that are less greasy and possibly a little bit better for you nutritionally-speaking. But, remember:
George Foreman doesn’t really have anything to do with this product except for licensing his name. (It is unclear if it’s even the same people who brought you the multi-million selling George Foreman Grill.)
Using less oil is generally considered a good idea, but there is no evidence that cooking food faster helps it retain any more nutrients.
We were unable to find out any dimensions of this pan; when we called the customer service number listed, there was a generic message saying items are back-ordered and to call back in September – we called in December. If you decide to order, we suggest calling (877) 300-5499 first to see if they’ve bothered to update their message.
Finally, it’s not necessarily a special pan that lets have fried foods that are less greasy. First, the temperature of the oil also plays a part, as lower heats tend to make your food soak up more oil. You can also simply decide to reduce the amount of oil you use, browning your food in a pan and then baking completely in the oven.
