To fry on stainless steel without sticking, you need to get it hot enough (but not too hot!) before adding your oil. Here's how it's done.
Heat the pan for a bit and dash ⅛ teaspoon of water onto the cooking surface. Check for the following:
Water bubbles and steams — you’re getting close!
Water sizzles while tiny beads dance across the surface of the pan — getting closer.
One or two big beads form immediately upon dropping them onto the pan. Bingo! ?
If the pan is too hot, your water will break up into many medium beads that glide across the pan surface. If this happens, remove the pan from heat for a few seconds before trying again.
Once you’ve hit the sweet spot, dry the pan with a dish towel and add oil. After a few seconds, add your food. It should stick less.
