Full Review:

Frieling Black Cube frying pan is a futuristic-looking cookware piece. But besides its looks, it offers the excellent features you need for a reliable frying pan.

metal utensil-safe Frieling Black Cube Frying Pan
The Frieling Black Cube Frying Pan is scratch-resistant, thanks to the textured grid layer that protects the nonstick coating.

The Frieling Black Cube frying pan features a textured cooking surface. It is just above the PFOA-free nonstick layer of the pan, allowing it to protect the coat when you use utensils. You can slightly feel its texture as you run your spatula across the surface, but it won’t affect the nonstick effect of the cookware. Our testers were pleased with how it quickly released whatever foods we placed in it.

grid layer of Frieling Black Cube Frying Pan
Above the PFOA-free nonstick coat is the textured grid layer that gives the cookware extra power to resist scratches.

Besides the beautiful grid protection layer of the Frieling Black Cube frying pan, its body comprises three layers of material. The internal and external stainless steel layers sandwich an aluminum plate between them, resulting in better heat distribution. Overall, the build of the cookware feels really solid. Our reviewers found nothing but absolute satisfaction from its bent rim to the smooth external wall to its ergonomic handle. The entire cookware is cleanly polished and mesmerizing. Most of all, thanks to the thick walls of the frying pan, it didn’t show any reaction when we used it for oven cooking up to 500°F! 

cooktop compatibility of Frieling Black Cube Frying Pan
The Frieling Black Cube Frying Pan is compatible with all cooktops, even induction!

During our test, the frying pan also worked pretty well with gas and induction by spreading the heat evenly across the surface. It seared two cuts of steaks uniformly without showing hot spots, and it browned vegetables perfectly. However, its performance on electric cooktops was entirely unexpected after unevenly distributing heat.
