You know as a desi cooking is an integral part of our culture. I don't think I could fathom life without masala dosas or Gujarati dal or chicken curry and still think I'm Indian.

When Brides Influencer program contacted me to review two new Calphalon products, I was thrilled! That's because I already own a whole set of non-stick Calphalon products and was on the lookout for a couple more additions to my family.

Now before you go all desi on my because everything I own is nonstick and not stainless steel, let me tell you...

Nonstick is AH-MAZ-ING.

I love it. Honestly, except for my pressure cooker and a couple Calphalon stainless steel pots, I prefer non-stick any day. ANY DAY! It's so easy to clean that curry mess or make easy dosas (or crepes!). And the less time I have to spend in the kitchen cleaning (or my husband), the happier I am.

So, Calphalon sent me the 10-in Contemporary Nonstick Fry Pan and the Nonstick 3-qt. Sauté Pan. First, here's the shickt on them:

The Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 10-in. Fry Pan is created with multi-layer non-stick for ultra-durability. With thick, flat bottoms and gently sloping sides, the frying pan is perfect for preparing eggs and omelets, sautéed vegetables, potatoes, crab cakes, patty melts and more.

The Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 3-qt. Sauté Pan has a wide, flat bottom to maximize the cooking surface, with room for steaks, chops, chicken breasts and filets. Deep, straight sides keep juices in the nonstick pan and minimize splattering. Great for sautéed meats, meat sauces, vegetables and more. The cover adds versatility for brown-and-braise recipes.

What does this mean for us? Well, the other night I was in a pinch for dinner options. In my 10-in omelette pan, I sautéed onions for 30 minutes while in the 3 quart I sautéed and then covered a whole head of cabbage.

Throw in the spices with the onions.

Continue sautéing, babysitting not required (keep it on medium heat). Add peas.

And voila! Mutter gobi bhaji is ready.

Done and done.

These pans are perfect for smaller dishes like sides. And the lid for the 3-quart can be used on the 10-in pan. I don't know if they're supposed to be interchangeable, but it worked for me.

So lovelies, put these on your wedding registry list, because you will love these pans like no tomorrow.
