Desperate to make family meal times less stressful? Want to feed the 5,000 quickly but healthily? After that one piece of cookware that’ll save your bacon every breakfast, dinner and tea? What you need is a fab new frying pan that won’t let you down!
Don’t just run out and buy any old frying pan though - you need to think about the best type of frying pan for your cooking needs. Once you’ve bought the right one, trust us, you’ll be tempted to use it for everything you make. Start by asking yourself a few questions…
Which Frying Pan Does My Family Need?
How Big is Your Family?
If meal times in your house are chaotic, and you need to be able to feed everyone quickly while keeping the washing up to a minimum, a large frying pan is absolutely essential.
You need one that’s big enough to cook an entire meal in at one time, like our Great British brekkie
, which sees bacon, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, eggs and fried bread cooked together. One large pan = less washing up - hallelujah!
Our Dura Forge Non-Stick 30cm Frying Pan
would be just the ticket if you’ve got a large, hungry family. It’s big enough to fit loads of food in at once, its non-stick surface means your food will slide easily onto plates when it’s done, and it can go straight in the dishwasher too. What more could you want?
If you’re not cooking for a crowd, you’ll still want the same features from your frying pan, but you could get away with a Dura Forge Non-Stick 20cm Frying Pan
instead. It all depends how much space you need - you'll still get the same brilliant quality.,
What Kind of Hob Do You Have?
Whether you’ve got a gas, electric or induction hob, it’s easiest to buy a frying pan that’s suitable for all of them, then it doesn’t matter if you update your kitchen - it's a bonus if you get one that can go in the oven too.
Our Everyday Stainless Steel 28cm Frying Pan
fits this brief, so it’d be perfect for cooking something like a shakshuka
or vegetable frittata
, which are both started on the hob but need finishing off under the grill and are great healthy, filling breakfasts or lunches for all the family.,
What Material Do You Prefer?
What are your current pans made from? Stainless steel? Copper? Aluminium? Think about whether you’re happy with this or if you fancy a change, and you’ll find all options available in the Prestige collection.
Some of our frying pans combine more than one material, like our Prism Non-Stick 30cm Frying Pan
, which is made from aluminium with a stainless steel base, making it superfast at heating up - exactly what you need when you’ve got hangry kids to feed!
Whatever material you go for, make sure it’s scratch-resistant, as this means it’ll carry on looking great for years to come.
Our Stone Quartz
frying pans fall into this category, making them great for cooking up treats like crepes
that need a fair bit of nudging and flipping with a spatula. With just flour, eggs and milk needed for pancakes, they’re perfect for those times when you can’t serve dessert quick enough.,
What If I Don’t Have a Dishwasher?
If you don’t have a dishwasher, you don’t need to worry about spending hours washing up, as all of our pans are non-stick, which makes them easy to quickly wipe clean with a cloth or piece of kitchen roll, leaving you with more time to spend on the things that really matter.
