Pans are some of the most used vessels in a kitchen, regardless of where you live. Every kind of cuisine has something or the other they make using frying pans. The standard American cuisine which is famous worldwide needs pans to make omelets, pancakes, crepes, fish filets, etc. Frying pans are also needed in a lot of Indian dishes and sides. The basic Indian bread is made using a pan for cooking, i.e. rotis and parathas. Many other alternate Indian cuisines use pans like south Indians for their dosas and uttapams.
The one thing that can be annoying about most kinds of pans is that they can be sticky when they are made of solid iron or aluminum. It is so tricky to make crepes and omelets on a surface like that because then you have to add 2 more steps to your cooking process than required, where you have to coat the entire surface with oil first so that nothing sticks. So to remedy this situation, the non-stick frying pan was invented.
A good non-stick pan will take most challenges head-on. They have fantastic heat distribution and offer the best solution to fatty shallow fried foods that tend to stick to the cooking surface, and resist in getting off the pan. Here’s a list of some of the best non-stick frying pans in the market.
- Tramontina 10-inch Professional Restaurant Fry Pan- This is one of the best non-stick fry pans on the market. The best heat distribution on its thick cast aluminum frame makes it strong, durable, and easy to use. The rounded edges allow you to scrape the crispy bits off the sides. A comfortable handle and lightweight make it easy to maneuver and a professional quality vessel to have.
- Nordic Ware Restaurant Cookware 10.5-inch Non-Stick Fry Pan- This s a great choice for a 10.5-inch deep frying pan. The extra half-inch just allows you shallow fry bigger things in this pan. It is built from solid aluminum with flared sides, bent lips, and a silicone handle. It’s not particularly smooth to touch, but that doesn’t affect its non-stick ability. It makes the top surface of your crepes even crispier.
- Ozeri 10-inch Stainless Steel Pan- This pan is perfect for people who prefer cooking on an induction cooktop. It is made with an encapsulated disk which is a tri-coated thick, steel, and an aluminum plate welded to the bottom of the pan.
