As of 2015, one of the best frying pans is the All-Clad 12-inch stainless steel frying pan, notes The SweetHome. Another frying pan rated highly by this website is the Tramontina 12-inch tri-ply clad open frying pan.
The All-Clad frying pan is used by famous restaurants across the United States. The pan retains heat because it is heavy, but it is light enough to maneuver around the kitchen with ease. It also features a long, concave handle that makes it easy to grip. The Tramontina frying pan is about a pound heavier than the All-Clad pan and is more affordable, making it a better choice for home cooks looking for a high-quality product.
