Cobb Fry Pan

Just bought the Cobb fry pan. (The flat non stick one, not the wok). I'm just wondering if this is OK to use over the gas stove on those occasions when there is insufficient time to use the Cobb? If not I'll have to carry a normal frypan as well.

You sure can use the Cobb fry pan on a gas stove.
This is probably "kinder" to the non-stick surface than using it on the Cobb Cooker with heatbeads.
It is a little on the small size but probably big enough for two people.

My Cobb is a few years old now and I am nearing the time to replace the fry pan as the non-stick surface has a few scratches on it. Doesn't appear to be affecting the cooking ability at present and the underlying surface is stainless steel.

A very versatile piece of kit, the Cobb Cooker.

The only problem I once had was using the Cobb brand of solid fuel disks, made from compressed coconut shells. They are just too hot.
You can break them in half but they are hard to get hold of as they are temporarily out of production. I prefer the Heat Beads® brand of BBQ brickettes for the Cobb.
Much easier to control the amount of heat required. You only require 6 or seven to do an entire roast.
I also use Heat Beads® for my camp oven.
