FAQs

What distinguishes a skillet pan from a frying pan?

Skillets are typically deeper than frying pans, making them suitable for a wider range of cooking techniques, including baking and braising.

How do I clean and maintain a cast iron skillet?

Traditional or raw cast iron pans require regular seasoning as they build up a non-stick patina over time; the more you cook with them the better, because the patina builds with every use.

Always wash with a mild detergent or just with water, avoid abrasive soaps and scrubs and always dry them completely before storing to prevent rust. Enamelled cast iron already features an enamelled coating which becomes smoother and thus more non-stick the more you use it. See our handy cleaning guide for more information on caring for your enamelled cast iron.

Can skillet pans be used on induction stovetops?

Many modern skillet pans are compatible with induction stovetops, but always check the manufacturer's specifications.

Are non-stick skillet pans safe to use?

Yes, when used correctly and not overheated, traditional non-stick skillets are safe and convenient for everyday cooking.

Skillet pans are a versatile and essential addition to any kitchen, offering the flexibility to cook a wide range of dishes. With their deep design and robust construction, they are ideal for both novice cooks and experienced chefs.
