Dear Folks,

I am at a loss!!

On my perusals, and searches among the Web, I am totally confused, as to whether I can, or cannot, use my Tramontina Gourmet TriPly, ala AllClad, twelve inch skillet, to function in the method of cooking called "stir fry"!!

Every place i search, twists into a discussion of steel woks and cast iron woks, both of which I have naught.

I 'made the move' to stainless steel triply, because I never got comfortable leaving a film, so to speak, on my Lodge-paid-good-money cast iron pieces. I keep them for when the power goes out, but day to day, I use my stainless steel skillet and domed top.

Is it possible to use this piece as a 'stir fry' piece of equipment?

Please help!!

if it's not the enameled variety, yes.

I do stir fry in a 12" evasee (deep fry pan style) all the time.

it's tough to get it as hot as "pro" woks - but that is due more to the stove / burner not being as powerful as restaurant / commercial equipment.

Just to ensure that late night postings are understood, and read well, with Monday morning coffee, my questions are about stainless steel tri-ply fry pans, which to my limited cooking knowledge, are not "coated", and not about cast iron pans, at all.

As the old guys Bartles and James once said .....
"Thank you for your support."

You can use your tri-ply stainless fry pans for stir-fry. It'll be essentially sauteing and will lack the characteristic flavor that a cast iron wok imparts, but it'll be close enough. I own a cast iron wok, but these days I'm too lazy/busy to use it and just reach of a (clad) fry pan.

Dear folks,

My face has stopped turning blue;
I have come to exhale, "PHEW!!"
So now this requester, "got the clue".
relaxes, and says:
"Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving to all of YOU!!"

1. No, not meant to be a 'limerick'.

2. As to my posts, Bless yo' Heart! If I have need of having any submissions 'approved', I leave that to the Moderator, not you, dear ol' Jim.

3. As to wishing y'all on this board " A Happy Thanksgiving", I -did- mean that, but now, as for you, dear ol' Jim, may your bowl of gruel be tasteless, and cold.

Just FYI, Jim Cooley actually is one of my moderators for this forum. I have to admit, that sometimes some of your posts have me scratching my head as well. But as Oscar Wilde famously said, "I am but too conscious of the fact that we are born in an age when only the dull are treated seriously, and I live in terror of not being misunderstood." and "Be warned in time, James, and remain, as I do, incomprehensible: to be great is to be misunderstood."
