The frying pan is one of the most important pieces of cookware in any kitchen. Many chefs prefer not to use non-stick stainless steel frying pans because the coating tends to wear off over time. However, our non-stick stainless steel frying pans are created by manufacturers that focus on the commercial food industry, where the demand is for durable, long-lasting kitchen tools. The coatings used in non-stick stainless steel frying pans, from brands such as Vollrath, Update International and Browne-Halco, are of a commercial grade and are much tougher than that of the average pan. The pans usually have an aluminum core to allow for good heat conductivity, giving you optimal control over the heat your food is fried at.
