Cast Iron

Cast iron pans are durable, with high heat retention and made without chemicals. If you choose one with a seasoned interior, it also has non-stick properties. They’re very versatile – you can even use them as a serving dish at the table. You can safely use them to cook on high heat, but keep in mind that they are on the heavy side.

Price

We have a fry pan that fits your budget

Price

The price of fry pans varies quite a bit. Keep in mind that premium models have a higher gauge and thickness, which gives you better heat distribution and retention. It also makes the pan more resistant to denting and warping, so it will last longer. Keep an eye out for sales on higher-end models if you’re looking to make an investment.

Induction

If you have an induction cooktop, your frying pan must have a magnetic base. Before you purchase, make sure the information on the fry pan clearly states that it is suitable for induction use.
