How to Keep Food From Sticking to Stainless Steel


Lifehacker posted a great article on how to tell if your pan is hot enough to prevent sticking, using a water test that exhibits the Leidenfrost Effect .
The idea is that while the pan is heating, water droplets will either steam, bubble, evaporate BUT when at the ideal temperature it will semi-float accross the pan like a mercury bubble.  This is when it is the ideal point to place your meat/foods on the pan because like the water it'll just be right above the surface.
