It must have been like 10 years ago (as of 2018) when a Korean-made product “Happycall” made its debut onto the local kitchenware scene. Widely touted as the wonder non-stick pan, it promised to keep all flavours in, and cook everything to perfection.
I quickly tried out every Flip and Flop – from antiquity to modernity – to make it happen. Sadly, nothing worked out. (The fish that I was trying to fry turned out half-cooked and looked more like an aircrash victim). Or that I was a culinary catastrophe.
My old faithful old Wok-horse was still the best. Disappointed, I decided to go for Amicable Separation after the Un-Happy Call.
It took one yank from a small screw driver to unhinge everything – and then, voila, I had two non-stick pans, and all parties were a lot happier afterwards.
