To do this, heat the pan over medium-high heat (thermostat 1 to 12: level 10). To check if your frying pan is ready for use, we perform the water drop test. Before adding fat, drop a drop of water on the surface of the pan.
If the drop of water sizzles, then your pan is not yet hot enough. If the drop of water turns into small beads, then your pan is ready to use.
