Frying pans are part of the basic equipment in every private and professional kitchen. For the steak or eggs to be perfect, the frying pan must match the stove and the food to be fried.
The science behind a skillets material
A frying pan made of 18/10 stainless steel is the general term for nickel-free stainless steel. Such steels consist mainly of iron and chromium. Since this class of stainless steel is ferromagnetic, its use is necessary if the frying pan is to be suitable for induction.
Skillets made of aluminum and cast aluminum have excellent thermal conductivity and heat storage properties and are therefore ideal for a frying pan. Frying pans made of aluminum have good thermal conductivity and store heat efficiently. Skillet pans made of cast aluminum are cast so that more complex shapes can be realized. Also, the pans are slightly more dimensionally stable, whether round or square.
In addition to frying pans and skillets made of aluminum and stainless steel, there are other materials such as copper and cast iron. The latter is ideal for grill pans.
