Do you do the pan flip?

No, not a new dance. :)

You know, when one flips the contents of a pan of sauteing vegetables the way the pros do. Or adds pasta to a pan sauce and flips the pan so that the pasta and sauce mix perfectly.

I recently mastered this in the last couple of months and I think it makes a huge difference. With a spoon or other utensil, the contents of the pan just move around. But with the flip, the contents from underneath wind up on top and vice versa with just a few quick jerks of the wrist. It is especially useful with pasta. I love it!

So, do you do the pan flip?
