Frying Pans & Skillets

Cast iron skillets and frying pans provide unique opportunities to make great recipes. Cast iron skillets are dense and durable pans that can be used on the stovetop or in the oven. You can cook everything from deep dish pizza, apple pie to morning eggs all in the same cast iron skillet. Skillets heat slowly compared to sauce pans or pots, but they cook food much more evenly. After purchasing a cast iron skillet, you have to season the pan in order to create a nonstick surface. In addition to cast iron skillets, frying pans are skillets with a thinner base and sides. Frying pans, or skillets, are marked by their high sides in order to prevent grease from splattering all over your stove or kitchen. This type of pan is not meant for deep frying, where a food items is completely immersed in oil, but they are intended for frying onions or peppers.

The first item of business after purchasing a cast iron skillet is seasoning the pan. Seasoning a cast iron skillet will help you maintain the pan so you can pass it down through generations. It’s a simple and quick process to season a cast iron skillet. You can start by heating your oven to 325° and wash your pan in the sink. Dry the pan thoroughly with a cloth and use oil to grease the pan. Place the skillet upside down in the oven and make sure that you have aluminum foil or some other material to catch any drips that fall from the oil. Bake your pan for an hour and allow your pan to completely cool before removing it from the oven. You will know your pan has been properly seasoned because it will be a brand new naturally nonstick pan.

You never want to wash your cast iron skillet with soap once it has been seasoned. The best cast iron skillets are simply run under warm water and lightly cleaned with a sponge or cloth. Make sure to not use soap because it could remove the seasoning from your skillet. Do not place your cast iron skillet in the dishwasher or use metal scouring pads or soap to remove food and oil. If your skillet pan rusts, then you can easily scour the area and rub with vegetable oil. This should prevent any further damage, but if the problem persists then you may need to wash with soap and re-season your cast iron skillet.

Frying pans require significantly less upkeep than cast iron skillets; however, they are also made to cook foods other than what is cooked in a cast iron skillet. The best frying pans are perfect for cooking food in a low amount of fat to create a crispy texture, like on the outside of breakfast potatoes. There are many different types of frying pans, including stainless steel and copper. You want to select a frying pan with a heavy bottom, which is good for conducting heat. You also want to use a frying pan that has long sloped or straight sides to prevent oil from splattering around your kitchen.
