Nothing makes cooking easier & more enjoyable than having the right pan for the job. And our handy guide to cookware essentials makes it easy to find the frying pans, skillets, saucepans, and sauté pans you need. Check it out below.
Frying Pans & Skillets
Ideal for frying, searing, and browning foods, skillets and frying pans typically range in size from 8''–12''. They feature a long handle and a shallow bottom with gently sloping sides, making them easy to flip and turn food as it cooks. Buying Tip: Choose a size that's a good match for the types of food you brown and fry the most.
A good option for boiling or simmering soup or water for pasta, saucepans typically range in volume from 1–5 quarts. Buying Tip: If you typically prepare single servings of food, go with a saucepan on the smaller side. For families and larger portions, purchase a larger one.
Featuring low sides perpendicular to the base, these pans provide one of the fastest ways to sauté and brown meat, fish, and vegetables. The low sides allow steam to easily escape and make it easy to flip and stir food.
Do a lot of simmering? Stockpots have sides that are as tall as their diameter or more, allowing soups and stews to simmer without reducing too much. Buying Tip: Choose a size that suits your needs. Smaller stockpots are ideal for steaming, while larger ones are perfect for soups and pastas.
