Frying pan


Looking for a good quality Frying pan and or skillet that won't warp, and that I can drop into the oven as well. I can tell you, Emeril is NOT the answer. Thx friends

    Lodge has decent stuff. 
    Prefer my Finex for CI. 
    Little Griddle Anyware has some nice cast aluminum. I've used in the oven and egg with no warping issues.

  • Here's a great article on the subject:

    I decided on the Matfer Bourgeat fry pan, mostly because of an article that chefs liked it best.  I even made a video of the seasoning steps using Matfer's instructions.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czqd3Vhnb3w

    A few have posted that they are happy with lesser priced carbon steel fry pans, so I suppose it would depend on how much you expect to use it and your budget.

    Cast iron, either new (Lodge) or antique (Griswold, Wagner or no-name). All-Clad is good stuff too, though I don't think I've ever used mine in the oven. I KNOW I haven't used it in the egg. Though I could do both.

    You could also consider a carbon steel pan. Inexpensive and like cast iron, if seasoned properly, non-stick. I have a Lodge, but the French DeBuyer, Mauviel and Matfer Bourgeat pans are supposed to be good as well. All are affordable.

    I understand that cast iron pans are not the best choice for glass top ranges. That doesn't matter to me as I hope never to own such a cooktop. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Lodge cast iron. I use from 7 inch to 5 quart Dutch oven on the Egg and they all work great. Non stick, easy cleanup.

    Cast iron is great. I have two carbon steel pans by deBuyer that I really like. All clad makes stainless stuff. Go nuts on amazon.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven.
