Frying Pans

    Hardworking and versatile, frying pans are essential for a well-stocked kitchen. It’s easy to find one for your needs at Macy’s. That’s because we carry all varieties, from ceramic frying pans to cast iron cookware. Here’s what you should know.

    The Basics

    So, what is a frying pan, exactly? It’s simply a flat pan with sloped sides. A frying pan, a fry pan, and a skillet pan are essentially the same thing; the terms are used interchangeably. While most home cooks use their frying pans for things like sautéing veggies, making omelets, or searing meat, these pans can also be used for stir-fries, pan sauces, and even desserts. For anyone stocking their kitchen from scratch, we recommend frying pan sets. These sets include at least one frying pan and often come with other cookware essentials, such as pots and lids.

    Which Type of Frying Pan is Right for You?

    First, decide if you want nonstick cookware or not. The best nonstick pans release food quickly and don’t require hard scrubbing to clean. Nonstick frying pans have a coating that allows food to slide off the surface. However, a ceramic frying pan is a nonstick pan that has a sand-derived coating. A cast iron pan is a great choice for high-heat cooking. A cast iron skillet can be used with multiple heat sources, from a gas stove to a convection oven to a barbecue pit. It holds onto heat well, allowing it to sear meat perfectly or even bake bread. Many restaurant chefs prefer a stainless-steel frying pan. Stainless steel is a highly durable material that can withstand frequent cleanings.

    Get ready to sear, sauté, and stir fry. Shop frying pans, available at Macy’s.
