My husband is a night owl. Usually when he is up late it was because he was grading papers or playing Halo on Xbox live. One morning I noticed an email from him. It said "We have got to get this set of pots and pans!" and had a link to the Orgreenic site
Normally he is not an infomercial person, and does not really like to cook so I was surprised that he even paid attention to the commercial at all. But the video was quite impressive. With no cooking spray they could swirl and egg around in the pan with out a spatula and slide it off in to the plate. At one point I think they blow on an egg with the pan flipped at and angle and it magically flies out.
Our pots and pan set has been dwindling down to almost nothing. As the teflon on one gets a chip I throw it out, but hadn't really replaced any. And since we found out we were moving we thought "Great! We'll just toss out the crappy pans and buy a new set at the new place. Less packing!" So the other day when I saw one of these pans at the end of the aisle at Walmart it seemed like the perfect opportunity to "test" out these pans before buying a whole set. Now for the next couple of weeks it is my mission to "beat the crap" out of this pan to see if they are really as amazing as they look.

Anyway my brother Tim and I decided Crepes would be a really good nonstick test for these pans and it worked well because we had a lot of little left over smoked and grilled meat in the fridge, but not enough of any one thing to make a bigger meal. That's why crepes are great, you can throw almost anything into them. 

Here is what you'll need for the batter.
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup water
4 tablespoons oil
1 cup flour
a pinch of salt

Mix all the wet ingredients together.

Then whisk in the flour and salt.

Add a little oil to a pan and heat it over medium high heat. When the oil begins to bubble add about 1/4 cup of batter. Quickly swirl the pan around to form a circle of batter.

Cook until the edges begin to curl and it is no longer wet in the center.

Flip then cook for about 30 more seconds.

Just like the infomercial it slid out of the pan nice and smoothly! If this pan holds up we may have to buy the whole set after all.

Nice stack of crepes waiting for filling.

I put left over smoked chicken, some bacon, and cheddar cheese in mine.

Fold the sides over and Ta-Da!

Bubba had smoked chicken and corn with a cut up crepe. Looks like he liked it! 
(They taught him to do "Touch Down!" which now since he gets every one else to do it too, he often starts "The Wave" at the dinner table when he is happy with his meal.)
