The no-nonsense guide to picking top frying pans

Frying pans are one of the workhorses of the kitchen. Quality pans matter.

Nonstick pans are great to release food with no effort.

Pans come in multiple sizes, so use the right size for what you cook.

Use an 8 inch pan for: • Frying eggs • Cooking small batches • Quick sautes

Use a 12 inch pan for: • Cooking large meals or double batches • Searing meat • Sauteeing quantities of vegetables • Mixing pasta and sauce together

Generally, you want to hand wash your nonstick pans, but HexClad pans can go in the dishwasher.
