Given the fact that the skillet ranks at the top of the list of the most fundamental pieces of cooking equipment ever,
selecting the right one is of utmost importance. You simply can’t argue with the fact that skillets do it all—sauté,
fry, sear, braise, brown and, depending on which kind you choose, even bake and roast. These multi-purpose workhorses
will definitely make you want to try something new in the kitchen. Sur La Table specializes in helping cooks at every
level find the essentials they need to up the culinary ante, starting with this crucial piece of cooking equipment.
Stainless Steel, Nonstick and Cast Iron Skillet Options
With dozens of options to choose from, it can be difficult to know which skillet is most aligned with your needs. If
you’re looking for a reliable standby for day-to-day use, you simply can’t argue with a nonstick skillet. We have the
best nonstick skillet for every kind of chef, whether you want a single do-it-all pan or a set in a variety of sizes.
You won’t be disappointed when you choose something by industry leaders like All-Clad, SCANPAN, GreenPan or Demeyere.
Offering exceptional durability and consistent performance, stainless steel skillets are equally worthy of your
consideration when shopping for a versatile daily frypan.
Love a good campfire cookout? Choose a classic cast iron skillet pan. These are fire-safe, oven-safe skillet options for
plenty of rustic flavor. Plus, many of the best cast iron skillets come pre-seasoned and ready for your burgers and dogs
right out of the box.
We also have one of the best selections of cast iron skillets anywhere, with rugged, long-lasting options made by Le
Creuset, Lodge and others. Compared with nonstick and stainless steel, cast iron is a bit more high-maintenance—it needs
to be hand-washed and can be a bit tougher to clean—but it brings the benefit of being oven-safe and extremely durable.
When you opt for a colorful enameled cast iron option, it can bring a splash of color and personality to the table. No
matter your preferences, budget or needs, there’s a skillet for the recipe at Sur La Table.
