What are the best frying pans?
>>
Personally, I just find one for cheap and move on when that one is too chipped and worn out
>>
I have a stainless steel one I hardly ever use because shit sticks to it.
>>
>>7069110
best for cooking are cast. but theres alot of maintenance that comes with them
>>7069130
i have the cheap teflon pans and i hate them. but i do the same thing
>>7069136
you gotta do three things.
1. pay more attention when you're cooking
2. spray pam
3. when you clean it, get EVERYTHING off of it without scratching it. the inside has to stay 100% clean and sctatch free. the scratches will make it impossible to clean and then it will always burn and stick.
>>
Ceramic, but only use wood utensils or it will scratch the finish but they are amazing and way more healthy than some of the shit out there.
>>
My favourite is probably my cast iron pan but I have a non stick pan and stainless pans that I use as well.
They all have different qualities and uses.
>>
I use a teflon pan for shit i KNOW is going to stick and be a pain in the ass. Aluminum for mostly everything. Cast iron pan for shit like steak and roasts, or if i make a pit fire i can just throw the fucker in it and not have to worry about damaging it.
>>
>>7069110
use what the pros use
>>
>>7069309
Well what is it?
>>
>>7069318
any cheap, all-steel pan. professional kitchens use these things and throw them away when they wear out. no plastic means you can heat them to absurd temperatures and throw em in the oven.

cheap restaurant supply aluminum

You're probably not heating it up enough. Stainless steel is great for anything you want browned and is fine for sauteeing too.

1. Heat pan until it's actually hot
2. Add oil, wait for oil to get hot
3. Add protein
4. don't touch it until it loosens by itself

>>7069280
Aluminum is supposedly unhealthy to cook in unless it's one of these ceramic coated pans.


>>7069211
Simple carbon steel is nice too, really cheap and doesn't retain heat so much so it's easy to adjust cooking temperature.
>>
>>7069110
Get a cheap cast iron Lodge skillet.
>>
>>7069388
I want to be able to toss but cast iron is too heavy for that. I have a crappy stainless steel pan right now for that but I'm going to go for something a bit thicker. Looking at stainless steel or regular steel mostly.
>>
>>7069398
If you have a gas stove you could just get a carbon steel wok. They're dirt cheap and awesome once they're seasoned.

Also fuck these patio captchas

Tramontina try-ply series. A 10in fry pan is $30 at walmart. Its got the aluminum core all the way up the sides. Easily on par with all clad. I prefer the handles on the tramontina desu

Cast iron. In Erie, the spot where they made the best pans in the world; griswold skillets, became a homeless and homo meeting spot. Then the destroyed the whole are and put expensive housing that no one still lives in. #ChineseGhostCities

>>7069110
Cast iron because virtually indestructible.

Everyone seems to use whatever those pans are on youtube these days, with the fucking red circle and netted pattern. I don't know what the fuck those are.

My current favorite pan is the fucking mineral b.

>I don't know what the fuck those are.

They're 15 usd tefal nonstick pans, they'll last a year then it's time to throw them away.
>>
>>7070235
I almost bought one of those but decided to buy swiss diamond. Is it any good?
>>
>>7070237

They look like the pans cooking with dog, and a bunch of other YT cooks use, but I've never actually seen them in stores (and I go kitchen shopping as a hobby, US).

>>7070241

I've looked as swiss diamond a few times, but haven't heard/read enough to invest.

I'm doing carbon steel for now, and when I have the money I'm going for bronze.

The nonstick coatings are all the same anyway, I used to go through a lot of pans because I lived with idiotic roommates and didn't notice a difference between brands.
>>
>>7070235
How is it? Doing a kitchen makeover, so I will have to buy a shit ton of stuff.
>>
>teflon
>aluminum
It's like you fuckers want to poison yourselves.
>>
>>7070260

It's like an even more high-maintenance cast iron, but elegant and utilitarian as fuck if you put in a little effort.
>>
>>7070202
>>ceramic pan gets non-visibly scuffed

Only the cheap ones, mine lasted over 10 years now.
>>
>>7070271
Good to know. I'll just get one and see how it goes, sometimes I am lazy as fuck and simply want to throw everything in the dish washer. Hence why I cannot only buy high grade stuff.
>>
>>7070279

Don't buy carbon steel if you're going to let it sit in the sink, let alone throw it in the dishwasher; it will rust on you...
>>
>>7070285
Exactly. I will use it when I'm not lazy.
