REI Frying Pan: A Disappointment

reifryingpanWe’re usually pleased with the gear we’ve chosen for bike touring but there’s one item in our panniers that just hasn’t made the grade: the REI Campware non-stick frying pan.

It looked good at first glance.

The deep-dish profile of the frying pan meant we’d be able to stir-fry plenty of veggies for our evening meal, the folding handle meant it was easy to pack and, in general, we’ve had excellent experiences with REI equipment.

With all that in mind, when we forked out $25 U.S. for the 8″ version, we expected many years of cooking pleasure. After all, our previous frying pan – bought from a supermarket for just $5 – had survived two years of constant use.

Unfortunately, the REI pan left us disappointed. After just a few months the non-stick coating stopped working and we could no longer make omelettes, pancakes or anything else that required a non-stick surface. Now, just 11 months since we bought it, we’re ready to throw it in the trash and go back to a cheap supermarket model.

Watch the video review for more of our thoughts on the REI frying pan.

This review is based on a REI frying pan, bought with our own money. We were not paid or bribed to give this review and it reflects our honest opinion of the products concerned.

    You know, of course, that REI will take that product back and give you a full refund, so don’t throw it in the trash.

      Yes, I’ve heard excellent things about their customer service. From Holland, though, it all seems like too much of a hassle. It would cost me as much to send it to them as I would get back. If anyone wants to carry it back to America for me and claim a refund, you’re welcome to!

    Singapore is absolutely exciting for its multilayered cultural tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India and also every little thing in between, there’s so much to experience and also find below – its vibrant shades and abundant background makes every edge an amazing experience – foodies should most definitely check out! If that is something that talks with you too after that Singapore need to not be missed out on as your following traveling location! Hawker Centres in Singapore offer an incredible range of regional meals. Don’t miss trying Hainanese Poultry Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were breathtaking – I specifically admired Supertree Grove as well as Cloud Woodland – they absolutely took my breath away! The light show at night was truly enchanting as well as an absolute must-see! Singapore provided such an amazing mix of futuristic style and lavish vegetation – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is absolutely outstanding to find! Singapore’s public transportation is superior! From its efficient city train system and easy travel with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for relaxation – which flaunts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and also a lot more attractions! – their public transportation has actually established brand-new criteria. Aquarium, attractive beaches, and also other amusement for the entire family make Singapore an exceptional way to spend a day. Don’t miss Singapore’s ArtScience Gallery which incorporates art, scientific research, and technology in an fantastic mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were genuinely wonderful; with interactive exhibitions as well as exciting display screens producing an extraordinary trip – certainly worth a see! I was truly shocked at Singapore’s unbelievable purchasing scene! From luxury malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s vibrant markets there genuinely is something here for any shopaholic to experience! See to it to leave some space in your bag! I discovered Singapore Zoo among the finest zoos I’ve visited; it’s open-concept units and also immersive habitats developed a real wildlife experience, not neglecting Evening Safari for added enjoyment! Singapore’s multiculturalism is one more drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, and also Western impacts can be seen all over from style to cuisine; creating a remarkable melting pot!
