What is the best frying pan?
What is the best frying pan? Stainless,Carbon Steel, cast iron or copper?
Bottom line, the best frying pan is the one a cook is comfortable with and successful using. For everyday cooking such as sautéing onions and peppers or frying foods like eggs, pork chops or hamburgers, pans made from stainless steel-wrapped aluminum and anodized aluminum are excellent choices.
A copper pan lined with stainless steel is the best choice for delicate foods that require precision timing such as thin cutlets, sea scallops or shrimp. The reason for this is that copper heats up quickly but also loses heat just as soon as the pan is removed from the heat source.
