ManPans Cookware Sets Review

Note:  I received a ManPans Wok to use for this ManPans Cookware Sets review.  No compensation was received.  The opinions in this review are my true and honest evaluation of this product.

Are you checking out cookware sets?  Are you trying to find the best cookware for your kitchen?

ManPans Cookware Sets offer lots of great features!  

I was recently asked to review ManPans and I am so glad I said yes!  I am in LOVE with this cookware!  As soon as I opened the box, I was impressed by the sleek design of the pan ( I selected the wok to review – see photo above).  But this is more than just a pretty pan.  This pan was designed by chefs and is used by chefs in commercial kitchens and restaurants around the world.  ManPans are built to stand up to lots of hard use and they just keep on turning out beautiful food!

Aside from how cookware looks, I also like pans that are a good weight but not too heavy.  Some pans are so heavy you can barely lift them but ManPans is a perfect weight.  The third thing I immediately noticed is the design of the handle.  It is ROUND!

This design allows you to really get a good grip on the pan.  Notice the word HOT on the handle?  There are actually arrows pointing from the word hot toward the pan.  That means that only the part of the handle between the word hot and the pan heats up.  The rest of the handle stays cool to the touch!  No more searching for pot holders!    

I immediately checked out the ManPans Website to find out more about this pan before I started cooking with it.  I learned that this is no ordinary pan.  

  • ManPans are tough.  The Gem-X2 coating will not chip, flake or rub off AND it is METAL UTENSIL SAFE!  
  • ManPans are PTFE free, PFOA free and free from any Fluoropolymer coatings.  No Toxins!  I think this feature alone is reason enough to replace your old non stick cookware.  
  • Made in the USA
  • Oven and broiler safe to 700 degrees F
  • The hard coat anodize and Gem-X2 sealer will not react with your food so it will preserve the delicate flavors of your food.
  • Exclusive cool grip handle 
  • Do not put ManPans in the dishwasher. Hand wash only.

 Now for my tips on using this cookware:

First, this cookware is stick resistant, not non-stick.  It is important to use a small amount of oil or Pam when you cook with ManPans.

Second, ManPans are made from dark anodized aluminum which means they retain heat more efficiently than your regular non-stick pans.  Because of this, you will need to adjust your heat way down (about 40% lower than other pans) so the food will not stick.  This also means you will save energy  when cooking in ManPans.  The food will cook just as fast, but at a lower temperature.

I made Stir Fry Vegetables in the wok.  I lowered the temperature as advised and I used a metal utensil.

Personally, I give this pan a perfect rating  5/5

I will be ordering additional ManPans and you will see me using them on future blog posts and on my YouTube cooking channel.  I love that these pans are tough and will stand up to years of use.

You can order ManPans from their website:  Shop  ManPans  They are currently offering free shipping on orders over $200.00.  You will see that in addition to stove top cookware, ManPans also makes pizza pans and bakeware.

I also had the pleasure of interviewing John Crow, president of ManPans.  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the highlights of that interview including the answer everyone wants to know….”Why are they named ManPans????”
