Where to buy frying pans

Frying pans are an essential piece of cooking equipment. They are used for stir-fries, omelets, pancakes, browning meat and of course, the great British fry-up. Unsurprisingly, there is now a huge variety of frying pans to choose from. This article will help you to find where to buy the best frying pan.

Frying pans

A general rule while selecting a frying pan (which is also known as a skillet pan) is to buy the best pans that you can afford. The heavier the pan, the better because it will last long and diffuse the heat well. If you can afford it, buy a frying pan set of three different sizes. Frying pans with lids are useful, since they enable you to cook stews or casseroles on the stove and give you greater control over the moisture levels in your food. To find a frying pan with a lid, look in a specialist cook store, department store or in shops such as John Lewis or Argos. Tefal pans
Tefal pans have a hot spot in the middle which indicates when the pan is hot enough to cook. This is useful, especially for novice cooks. Tefal frying pans come with or without lids. You can buy Tefal products in most department stores, or at John Lewis or buy direct from Tefal online.

Specialist pans

Crepe pans Pancake pans, or crepe pans are slightly less shallow than standard frying pans, and are usually made from steel. If you are going to make pancakes regularly, you might want to invest in one of these. You can buy them at Decuisine.co.uk, Amazon, Marks and Spencer or John Lewis. Omelet pans Another specialty pan is the omelet pan. This comes in a variety of sizes, from 20cm upwards and are ideal for making omelets for one. You find these online at Tefal, Amazon or eBay and also in Argos.

Cast Iron frying pans

When you think of Cast Iron pans, you tend to think of Le Creuset. This company makes a wide range of Cast Iron pans including sauté pans, omelet pans and frying pans. It really pays to do some research online to find the best price for these pans. Look at eBay, Amazon and use search engines to find all the possible retailers and to find out what prices they are charging. Bear in mind that although Le Creuset are the best known Cast Iron pans, there are other makes around too such as Lodge Logic which are much less expensive.
