Pendulum: Tips for the Frustrated Beginners

The most frustrating phase for a pendulum newbie is the “accuracy uncertain” period. It’s worse than getting it wrong all the time. Lucky for me, I received excellent tips from friends skilled in the art of pendulum.

If you are a super fresh newbie, first search online for basic instructions. These tips are more for people who have started trying but just can’t be accurate and consistent.

Carry the Pendulum with You

The first day I did it, though only for 3-4 hours, I started getting better results and it was not a from something like “I live on the Earth”. These answers were for Bengston charged cotton (in %) and other items that required number values.

Tried? Nap and Try Again Later

Writing from experience, using the pendulum while your energy is low results in even more inconsistent and inaccurate outcomes than your actual skill might produce. This can only lead to more frustration.

Ground Yourself Before Practice

You can use any energy grounding method you know, I use the white light meditation from Dougall Fraser.

I happened to have just gotten his 10 Color Meditations as a bonus when I bought Your Life in Color. Now I have the 9-minute version on my mp3 player. The deal is still good as of today, 9/27/2019, not sure when it will end so check here if the book is already on your wish list.

Ask for Divine Help

It could be from any higher power of your choosing. I just go with my spirit guides. So far, I’ve only asked for accuracy and precision since what I need is usually a number. And depending on your purpose, add things like “for the healing of” or “for the highest good of”. Remember to thank your spirit guides and the pendulum for their assistance.

Use a Statement Instead of a Question

It’s easier for the pendulum to react to a statement. Try asking yourself “Am I feeling well?” and then say to youself “I am feeling well.” see how different they feel. The statement leave less leeway in your reponse which reflects the same effect in the pendulum’s movement.

Feel the Swing

Tune into the pendulum‘s movements as you practice. Eventually, you will be able to sense the energy in the movements and the knowing that it’s not directed by your conscious intent but by the shared universal intelligence.

Still Stuck?

Get more help from David and Erina Cowan!

In their video, Dowsing with David and Erina Cowan, they explain the background and basics of dowsing then they go through and debug many issues that might be preventing you from getting quality results.

In their book, Dowsing Beyond Duality: Access Your Power to Create Positive Change, you can get more details about clearing using a pendulum. The book also show you how to use your pendulums to solve many problems.

I also use the 0-10 chart in the book vs. narrowing the range statements to see if the numbers from both are the same. And the results are at most 1 point off when they are not way off from each other. So the chart is also a helpful validation tool.

Trust You Can + Practice, Practice, Practice!

Confidence and training are the two things both of my friends mentioned. I am definitely doing better as I practice a little everyday. So, stop saying you are bad at this and keep trying!

Day Dreaming: Don’t Do What I Did

Visualizing a desired future with all senses and emotions is a key element for manifesting and I have never been good at it. One day when I was chatting with a friend. The awkward pauses in the conversation gave me pause.

A Typical Example

Friend:I want to have my wedding at the Grand Floridian in Disney World.
Me:Why? It’s so muggy there, you’re going to be miserable in your wedding dress. Can’t even imagine how the guys are going to survive in their tuxes.
[ — 1 micro pause — ]
Friend:I will just have the wedding in the winter. Their holiday decorations are legendary, even a life-size gingerbread house.
Me:Well, you better start saving your money now. I’m pretty sure Grand Floridian is the most expensive resort there. You and your guests will end up spending 10x more than other destination weddings.
[ — 2 micro pauses — ]
Friend:By that time, my future husband and I will be very successful, each doing what we love. We’d have enough to take everyone with us on a vacation!
Me:How are you going to find that husband? You just started this job, you don’t even have time to date.
[ — a very long pause — ]

This is the point the friend would change subject. Mind you, I would know 100% that she was not really wedding planning but I just had to inject real world considerations. In the process, I destroyed the excitement and dampened the potentiality of her having an amazing husband, a great career, and a wonderful nuptial celebration.

The Troubles of a Realist

Though I was never that bad, I did take the fun out of day dreaming for everyone, myself included. After some contemplation, I think I might have found the first two bugs in my visualization process.

Being practical = attachment to the outcome

Attachement and control hurt the manifesting process
Letting go = vision to reality

This is a big no-no for manifesting as you may already know. Being a realist ties your vision firmly into the known world in which your vision can only ever stay a vision.

The act of surrendering detaches your vision to the existing energy configuration, allowing your vision to first take shape in the energy field, arranges “coincidences” that eventually lead you to your manifested vision.

Being practical = being a control freak

Most of us tries to control how things go in our lives and while it’s crucial for a functional life, it prevents your dreams from manifesting.

To me, this control smells more like the fear of loss and failure. We want so much for the vision to come true, we can’t help but confine ourselves with “reality”. That backfires because we don’t yet know how the Universe works, this control builds the impenetrable walls that box in what is and keep out what is possible.

I am so grateful that my enlightened friends for not dumping this dream crusher and I am happy to report that there are no more pauses while we day dream together.

…I am visualizing myself day dreaming away, soaring free, and the sky is no limit.

You Can Recycle Incandescent Light Bulbs?!

Yes, I recycled incandescent light bulbs! At my local IKEA!

It is right by the exit where I passed by many, many times. How in the world did I miss the lovely recycle station there? Oh, right, on every visit, I actively avoid buyer’s remorse and not hanging out at IKEA for fun.

Other than incandescent light bulbs, my local IKEA takes fluorescent light bulbs, plastic bags (the grocery store bins are always overflowing and often mistaken as the garbage can), and their old catalogs/paper. I’ve found other locations taking cardboard and batteries.

But I am not sure if every store accepts the same things, so make sure you look for the recycle station the next time you visit your local IKEA.

Bengston Workshop Experience + Tips

Bengston Energy Healing Method® is the most interesting healing method I’ve experienced so far. I learned it from a practitioner who has been treating me for allergic skin reaction to household detergents and chronic respiratory congestion.

My skin has been clear for a long while now except for the occasional encounters with allergens. And the congestion is so mild now it doesn’t bother me much anymore.

Workshop Experience

Dr. Bill Bengston is a serious scientist with a serious sense of humor. As tired was I was through the entire 4 days of workshop, I only dozed off in the last 15 minutes of the last day and it wasn’t because I was bored.

What I Love About The Bengston Method

  • Bill developed and tested the method in the lab and he has the photos and data to back it up. Watch Bill explain what he does.
  • Bill always thank the receivers (even animals) because by them accepting the healing, they are giving him what he wants–healing of themselves.
  • We (anyone using the Bengston method) do not heal, our job is to deliver the healing energy from the Universe to the recipients. Healing while keeping your ego in check, I LOVE it!
  • He thinks our body is smart, it takes what it needs from the healing energy, and it knows what needs to be fixed first, so the symptom you want to heal might not happen for a while. If there is nothing in the way of clearing the symptom, it will go away sooner than later.
  • Once you mastered the method, it’s almost effortless.

Signing up

the energy cure

If you only want to get an idea of the method and what it can do, go for the first evening research lecture at a very reasonable price. If you want to learn the method, sign up for the Two Day Workshop.

And if it’s possible, attend the Advanced Practice Day, too. On the Advanced Practice Day, you get more time to ask all types of questions, learn more ways to apply healing, and practice some more.

You can see Bill’s video on the workshop for more information.

Advanced Practice Day is Special

When I arrived at the workshop that last day, I noticed a very clear mood shift from the two previous days. People were excited to start the day. It was like someone had turned on an energy motor that morning, not only there was a smooth flow of energy in the room, there were happy vibes.

Before and During the Workshop

Bengston Hands On Healing training cd

If you are a total newbie to the Bengston Energy Healing Method®, I suggest reading his book, The Energy Cure, and/or start practicing “cycling” from his Hands On Healing training cd set before the workshop.

Because all newbies struggle at the beginning, it’s better to have something to build on before you get to the workshop. This way, you’d know better what to listen for and what to ask. You would also benefit from practicing with a large group and chatting with other participants. Often there are experienced practitioners in attendance to help you out as well.

And no worries about getting bored. Dr. Bengston is always sharing new ideas and findings.

Tips

Leave your ego, expectation, experiences at the door. Trying to impose these onto the Bengston Method might become an obstacle in mastering it.

Channel your inner mad scientist! “Can I do such and such?” Many participants would ask. Dr. Bengston would always answer “I don’t know, try it!”

Have fun with cycling. It could be having silly things on your cycling list that make you happy, or doing experiments on charging water or cotton, or testing things out on a plant, or just coming up with new ways to do any Bengston related activities all the time.

In the case of cycling, routine is the enemy.

Everyone is unique, so what and where you feel the cycling might be different than others. No need to compare or worry, just trust yourself.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Cycling on your own can be very lonely, especially when you have tons of questions and no where to ask. So, ask about the practice groups to join after the workshop. It’s a great way to find answers and all the ways people are using the Bengston Energy Healing Method®.

Cycling with a group also seem to create a resonance that amplifies the combine strength of the energy, as some might be able to feel during the workshop.

Liberated!

During a hands-on healing practice, my friend who is relatively new to the Bengston Method, felt the resistance on the top of my head and kept her hand there for a good while. Then I discovered the sensation in my front right skull whenever I cycle was gone.

“How am I to know if I am cycling???” I thought about it for a while. Instead of letting it stop me, I decided to be like an electron–take the path of least resistance. I let go!

Not having the sense of control it’s like:

  1. Letting the rocket go free in the outer space at the top speed.
  2. Taking the training wheels off and leaving no attachment to the process and the outcome. This is very important for the manifesting process as you may already know.

As you can see, it’s even possible for a newbie to deliver healing. So, to all who are attending the workshop, say “YES” to your Jedi Power!

Qi and Torsion Field (氣與撓場)

While learning The Bengston Energy Healing Method®, I found out how this healing energy can be stored in water (i.e. by charging water), and when tested with a pendulum the direction of spin can be detected. It sounded very much like what I’ve learned about Qi in Dr. Si-Chen Lee‘s book, Scientific Qi Gong (科學氣功).

In the book, he concluded that Qi is also a Torsion Field force. And in order to benefit from the special characteristics of the Torsion Field in charging water and other chargeable organic medium, I watched Dr. Lee’s talk about Qi and Torsion Field (氣與撓場 in Mandarin Chinese). This is my best attempt to share what I’ve learned with non-Chinese speakers.

What is Qi?

Use of Qi in various Chinese terms
Use of Qi in various Chinese terms

In the Chinese culture, Qi is the most basic element in the Universe, and everything is the result of the changes in Qi. When applied to the physical body, Qi’s movement is the source of our living energy.

In Chinese language, Qi is used with plethora of words to describe the quality of nature, physical/mental states, personalities, even cultural characteristics.

The ancient Chinese somehow knew about the special qualities of Qi. Water absorbs Qi and Wind/Air scatters Qi. And they applied them as the basic principles of Feng Shui (Wind Water).

Qi Gong is the practice of adjusting breathing and mindful movements to achieve a smooth flow through all meridians every 24 hours, delivering healing instructions (from the genes’ innate intelligence) to help your body heal itself.

What is a Torsion Field?

Torsion Fields were discovered by the Russian professor N.P. Myshkin in the late 1800s and detected by Russian scientist Dr. N.A. Kozyrev. Since it is not gravity, electromagnetic force, strong force, nor weak force, a Torsion Field is also called the “fifth force”.

A graphic representation of the Torsion Field (From Dr. Lee’s paper)

Gravity is the effect of the curve of space-time caused by the presence of a mass in motion, not an actual force. Due to the complexity in the math and the near zero influence, rotation is ignored in Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In 2011, NASA proved the existence of this rotation in space-time (frame-dragging).

Anything that spins and/or rotates has a Torsion Field. Every self-spinning particle has its Torsion Field. When atoms combine into molecules, the smaller Torsion Fields form a larger Torsion Field, and that is represented in what we actually see though a microscope.

Explaining spin in quantum physics (The Science Asylum)

The same principle applies to everything. But we can’t see the Torsion Field in everyday objects because their atoms are usually in a state of disorder in which their Torsion Fields cancel each other out.

The combination of self-spinning and rotation can create a dynamic Torsion Field that can propagate and can produce a wave in time. When a self-spinning object is in a frame-dragging space-time, and its Torsion Field is at a certain non-zero value, the object may behave like a particle in the quantum state, with a self-spin that switches between up and down.

The Special Qualities of Torsion Field

  • Torsion Field is everywhere like gravity. It doesn’t lose energy in propagation, it only changes the self-spin state of materials.
  • Torsion Field is not constricted in the Light Cone, so it can reach back into the past. It can also reach into the future.
  • The Torsion Field’s self-spinning structure remains for a while even after the source has been removed. It needs time to return to a neutral state.

Proving Qi is a Torsion Field

Dr. Lee first used the Torsion Field Generator to project the energy into water. He measured the changes in the size of the water molecule cluster before and after receiving the Torsion force. The results showed that the energy breaks up the clusters into smaller ones. He also noticed smaller changes in cleaner water.

From previous experiences, Dr. Lee knew that crystal energy and Qi share the same characteristics. So, he projected crystal energy though different filters and detected the changes with the help of an energy-sensitive person.

In the end, Dr. Lee proved both energies were not affected by aluminum. They were intercepted by water, as described in the Feng Shui principle.

Other Interesting Observations

  • Certain holy words (when written in the appropriate languages)/symbols attracts a Torsion Field and can be used to contain the Torsion Field.
  • Any 2D/3D spiral and geometric structure can change its Torsion Field in the space it occupies, much like how locations and environments matter in Feng Shui. For example, the energy projected onto any side of a pyramid-shaped object would come out from the bottom or from the top point of the pyramid.
  • An energy-sensitive person can feel the residual Torsion Field after the source has been removed.
  • Water can store a Torsion Field’s message/structure. (as in how the The Bengston Energy Healing Method® charges water with healing information).

(Note: I am sure there are mistakes both in my understanding and my translation, so please do more research on your own).

Past Life Healing: Brutal Force Style

Sadness welled up, triggered by simple lyrics, a song about life after the passing of his love. Only this sadness didn’t feel like mine. I am living a blessed life. After several weeks, when this sadness still surfaced with the song during random plays, determined to release this emotion, I decided to face it head-on, brutal force style.

Bringing Past Life Pain to the Surface

The morning of a day with nothing scheduled, I put on my headphone, set to loop just this one song, took a deep breath, and braced for what’s coming.

I want to watch you leave, follow behind you wondering the streets.
I’m waiting for you to turn and look at me then decide to stay eventually.

The tears came. I was watching a little boy and I was the little boy. He was peeking through a slit in a shabby wooden door as his father walked away from the lens maker’s work shed.

I want to take your little hand and say let’s go home.

I was crying now. The sorrow was deep yet without a solid root in me.

The boy was almost sure his father would change his mind the very next moment and take him home. A father who marked his anger all over his little boy’s body and heart. A father who hated his son for taking his wife’s life during the childbirth.

Talking with my Past Life Self

The boy knew that was only wishful thinking. His silent cry rang inside me, “Don’t leave me here, take me with you!”

I stepped forward and wrapped him in my arms. He looked up and said “Why doesn’t anyone love me?”

“I love you. Whenever you need a hug, think of me, you will feel me here with you.” I let him cried a little longer.

“You have to forgive the grown ups, they don’t know what you are doing to themselves and to you. You are strong, don’t ever give up. I am always here for you.”

Shifting to The End of His Life

He was dying and I was keeping him company. He was forced into the army, now wounded and bleeding to death on the battle field.

I held him and said “You can let go now, you’ve done your best.” After he left his body, I sent my gratitude along.

“Thank you. Your strength to survive this long allowed our soul to go forward in your lifetime. I will work to release the pain and always be grateful for what you have contributed to the growth of our soul.”

More Notes

The scenes I described did not appeared to me visually. I only sensed the events happening. I’ve made peace with not being able to “see” as many intuitive people can.

I only knew about this past life from a session with Ainslie MacLeod. Though this felt like real-time, I was not “reliving” that life as many people experience in the past life regressions.

As I was writing the drafts of this post, the sadness still returned when I read the lyrics. A friend then offered to use ETF (Emotional Freedom Techniques or tapping) to release this past life trauma.

When she was done, she mentioned it was easier than expected and that I must have processed a lot of it already. I guess my Brutal Force Style healing did work, just not as fast as ETF.

Later, I tested it again on my own by reading the lyrics and listening to the song and the same emotion did not return.

First Session with Ainslie MacLeod: Getting the Most Out of It

Read His Books

Whether you’ve just made an appointment for a past life reading with Ainslie MacLeod or considering getting one, give yourself plenty of time to read his books before the session.

The information Ainslie and his guides bring you are all based on what’s in these books. You do not want to waste your valuable session time on having Ainslie explain the basics that you could have learned from these books.

The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended

The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended by Ainslie MacLeod

The Instruction talks about soul ages, types, missions, fears, and more. What are yours?

For your soul types, you can take the quiz on the site. The top results were spot on compared to what Ainslie told me during the session.

In the book, he provides the Open Heart meditation to help you connect with your guides in figuring out your own soul ages, types, missions, and fears. I was not really good at meditation and not sensitive enough to get messages from my guides. I tried anyway but in the end I just picked what felt right for me.

Don’t worry about getting it wrong. It’s more important that you have something to base on in case Ainslie tells you otherwise (like he did with Oprah, about 31:11 into this audio interview).

Pay extra attention to the differences, they might be important. For me, they kept taking me back to how I was as a child, my true self.

The Transformation: Healing Your Past Lives to Realize Your Soul’s Potential

The Transformation: Healing Your Past Lives to Realize Your Soul's Potential by Ainslie MacLeod

The Transformation talks deeper about our past life fears and how it will change the future of humanity through The Transformation.

The Transformation is the upcoming shift to “Stage Four Consciousness”, the final level. In the shift to “Stage Three Consciousness” human gained the abilities of intellect. In stage four, we reconnect with our soul, resulting in the best balance of mind and spirit.

What we all need to do is to be our true selfies and become the Transformation. We can accomplish that using this book to:

  1. Identify our past life fear
  2. Take the corresponding action (motivation)
  3. Get the result (goal) of reconnecting with the part of the soul blocked by the past life fear

Depending on your situation, he and his guides might provide a specific healing exercise along with the particular fear you are facing currently. Once you know what your past life fears are, the book is also a good DIY healing tool.

After Getting the Appointment Confirmation

  • Clear the schedule of the morning or the evening before your appointment
  • Keep one to two hours open after your session ends
  • Be aware of what/who drains your energy, what keeps your spirit down, take notes on the patterns that emerged.

Preparing for the Session

The morning or the evening before, find your favorite writing instrument* and a notebook (or a stack of paper), write down ALL that plague your life especially long-term issues (physical and otherwise) without obvious origin, and in the order of intensity/urgency. (* Using a pen with poor or inconsistent ink flow would interrupt the stream of thoughts, so do find one that writes smoothly.)

If you don’t know where to start, begin by scribbling circles. When something pops into your mind, write it down, even if it doesn’t make sense. Once you start, keep going, no judging, no crossing out, don’t stop until you know you are done. Then go back to see what jumps out at you.

Review your lists from the two books, especially if it has been months since you last read them.

Read the FAQ to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

During the Session

  • Get ready to take notes with your favorite pen/pencil and paper/notebook, the session is not recorded.
  • Ainslie is really easy to talk to, just follow his lead.
  • Listen well and write as much down as possible. There will be so much information coming your way, you really don’t want to miss anything.
  • However, if something is aching to come out, speak up. Or if you are not sure about what you heard, be sure to ask for confirmation. (He mentioned the locations of the wounds that resulted in a past life death but I did not ask him to go over that again, now I am left guessing.)

After the Session

  • Take an hour or two to redo your notes while the memory is fresh.
  • In the process, you might remember things you missed, or emotional reactions you had, put those down as well.
  • Don’t stop until you are done.

In The Following Days

  • Go through your notes with both books to help your healing or growing process.
  • Pay attention to the changes in your body and your emotional states, I usually write them down or talk to a friend about it. It’s like airing out your rug, though it might take a while but once the old dusts are gone with the wind, they are gone for good.

Say Hello to Your True Self

I very much enjoyed my sessions with Ainslie. He and his guides confirmed and cleared many things for me. It has been more than six months since my first session and I am still noticing patterns that he mentioned which I couldn’t recognize at the time.

I am finally moving forward with a clear purpose, work is finally like play. Some of my physical issues also improved, not to mention how much happier and more energetic I am.

Finding your true self is an adventure that is worth the challenge. Ainslie and his guides just make it easier. I hope this will help you get the most out of your time with Ainslie.

The Transformation is happening and I am glad you are coming with me.

Stupid Spring

Stupid spring
Stupid songs

Urges to love and be loved
Sprung a stupid spring

Love makes one stupid
Contending my religion

Plugging the spring doesn’t work
Spewing back at my face

Basking in spring doesn’t work
Attachment harbors a pending doom

Stupid spring!
Stupid spring!
STUPID SPRING!

Simple Ingredients Rice Flour Baking

Rice for Wheat

Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods by Anthony William

Once I understood that “Small Annoyances Must Die!“, I cut wheat, dairy, and eggs (was already off corn for the Round-Up gene contamination) as suggested by Anthony William in Life-Changing Foods to stop many little health issues along with other healing methods I will be writing about in the future. That left me with rice being the main option to replace wheat.

In my search for options, I was surprise how hard it is to find vegan + gluten-free + organic options in my local natural food market.

Stop Faking My Food

Besides that, many gluten-free breads and gluten-free mixes contains ingredients that I want to avoid (corn based additives, xanthan gum, sugar, modified cellulose, certain oils, etc.), some because of the health implications, some because I just want simple, basic ingredients.

Let’s face it, rice will never taste like wheat. Just get over it and stop judging rice bake goods as the wheat ones. We have already done so much harm to our bodies faking sugar, meat, butter, and many more.

Cook or Die… A Little

To have a say in what’s in my food, I ended up spending much more time in the kitchen. Stir-fry, curry, and many Asian dishes are perfect to go with rice. But I still need some bake goods for when I am short on time. By luck, I caught Medical Frontiers Special – Search for Superfoods in Niigata on NHK World.

In the last segment, rice flour baking expert, Sakumi Tamori showed us 3 rice based baking recipes. I’ve only baked the cookies and the scones so far.

My Baking Experiments

I first tried to make my own rice flour but my little Vitamix S50 wasn’t powerful enough, and my cookies turned out a bit grainy. So I switched to Bob’s Red Mill Organic White Rice Flour.

The cookies also were too hard for me, I swapped out some potato starch with tapioca flour and added some baking powder. And to save time, I scooped my dough into little domes, rolling and cutting was too messy as well.

For the scones, my savory version uses sweet potato in place of the banana and added my grounded herb mix (also per Anthony‘s suggestions), chopped onion, garlic, green onion, and jalapeño. I then freeze them for when I don’t have time to cook.

I also use local raw honey* organic brown coconut sugar instead of sugar in both recipes. As for the rice oil suggested in the video, I use refined sesame oil (445°F smoking point) since I am not sure if what we can get in the States are the same thing as the Japanese ones.

Cheating A Little Is Not A Sin

I understand that majority of people don’t have the luxury to cook all the time. Anthony mentioned just do your best to cut down on the ingredients that are not good for you.

I cheat when I am super hungry/busy/lazy but I do try to pick the best options from the deli of my local natural food store. After all, we do die sooner from hunger than from a little unhelpful food.

My #1 USA Made Bakeware, Non-Toxic, Stick-Resist, Metal Safe

(This post only applies to LloydPans dark coating products.)

Switched Again for Lighter, Tougher Pans

About 10 years back, I replaced all of my baking pans to ones made in USA. They were silicon coated to be nonstick.

After a while, I noticed the pans began to have brown patches. I was worried that if elements can seep through the coatings then the aluminum would have come in contact with the food, too. Also, these pans tend to be heavy and hard to handle during baking and washing, especially the care needed to not scratch the coating.

I started my search for new pans, determined to find something better and still made in USA. Then I stumbled upon a site for serious pizza makers and it led me to LloydPans.

Why I Love Using LloydPans

  • Made in Spokane Valley, Washington, USA
  • Their special DARK coatings: Pre-Seasoned Tuff-Kote® and Dura-Kote®
    • Non-toxic, water base (eco-friendly), PTFE and PFOA free sealer
    • The sealer gets down into the pores to form the seal over the anodized metal surface (I think that prevents interaction with food and metal)
    • no seasoning the pans (I wash them after each use to avoid the need)
    • no oiling before baking (from my own experiences)
    • safe with metal utensil (hand whisks, spatulas, NOT knives/mixers)
    • stick resistant
    • safe to heat up to 700 F (450 F is the limit for silicon coated pans)
    • absorbs heat very well
  • Light weight — easier to handle when baking and washing
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing
  • Easy to clean (more details next)

Easy to Clean

  • Metal utensil safe = less worry! Now I don’t have to be careful about forks and table knives touching the pans in the sink
  • For stubborn stuck-on food, I just soak it in warm water for 30 min, using a flexible spatula (a rep. at LloydPans told me she uses her metal spatula to do this and her pans still works well) to work on the toughest spots, then finish off with a with my 100% plant based Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge (read my review)
  • No rust nor stain so far after 3 months of frequent use (I dry mine at 150 F for a few minutes in my toaster oven so I can put them away sooner.)

More Tips and Notes

  • Read and follow the instructions from LloydPans. If you have more questions after that, go to LloydPans.com, you can chat or call them for help. I had great customer service experiences with them.
  • NEVER put empty oiled pans in the oven, it’s bad for the coating.
  • Watch and adjust the oven temperatures and positions the first time you use your LloydPans with any recipes. Their dark coated pans absorb heat very well, one time I had to turn my toaster oven down 50 F.
  • Best to hand wash — I hand wash mine with 3M eco sponge (made in USA) and Attitude dish soap (made in Canada, read my review). According to LloydPans, the dish washer cleaners harm the coating.
  • “Beauty Marks” is okay — During the production process, where the clamps hold the pan, there are marks left on the reams, it doesn’t effect the performance nor the durability of the pan.

Where to Buy

  • For immediate availability try Amazon
  • Direct from LloydPans or LloydPans Kitchenware (for cookware and other home kitchen products) — I am a bit picky and wanted items as close to my ideal as possible, so I ordered from them. If they don’t have the items in stock, they will make them for you, so it may take a while. They will send you an estimated date after you placed the order.

Better Cooking Life Through LloydPans

Being a slow cook, using LloydPans pans and baking dish saves me time and many little annoyances in the kitchen. And USA made products still rock!

P. S. Want more USA made goods? See what else I actually use or shop at my Made in USA Amazon Store.
