Is it hot enough?

I came across this excellent video and explanation of how to know when your cooking pan is at the correct temperature for searing, and the interesting physics behind it the other day.  Check it out!

**In thinking about this more, I definitely recall instructions for making, among other things, pancakes, which said something like when water beads on the surface, the pan is ready.  So this isn’t a new knowledge, but the explanation and video make it worthwhile.

    That’s really cool. I have a SS skillet I rarely use (the old cast iron skillets get all the work, ha). But I’m tempted to pull it out just to play :)
