A unique kitchen essential: What is a skillet?

A skillet, also referred to as a sauté pan, stands out as a crucial kitchen utensil that unlocks a spectrum of culinary possibilities. Engineered with high sides, it is a flexible cookware designed to master various culinary techniques and cater to a wide array of dishes. The elevated edges effectively prevent splattering during cooking with a skillet, making it the go-to tool for one-pot wonders.

The advantages of skillets over frying pans

It's a common inquiry: What sets a skillet apart from a frying pan? When considering the choice between a frying pan vs skillet, the distinct features of each become apparent. A skillet diverges from a frying pan in its design and suitability for specific cooking applications. While a frying pan boasts a flat bottom and slightly sloping sides, suitable for versatile frying and cooking methods, it lacks the inclusion of a lid. On the contrary, a skillet's high, straight sides excel in containing ingredients without splatters. Ideal for sautéing vegetables, and preparing rich pasta sauces, it also serves as a master of one-pan dishes. Notably, a key advantage lies in the fact that a skillet always comes with a lid, ensuring added convenience in heat retention and optimal braising during the cooking process.

Technical specifications and material choices for a skillet

Regarding materials, we offer a stainless steel skillet from BEKA known for its durability, resistance to various ingredients and cleaning products – including dishwasher use. A stainless steel BEKA skillet features an aluminum layer between the stainless steel bottom and the interior for better heat conduction.

On the other hand, an aluminum skillet is lighter, heats and cools quickly, and usually comes with a non-stick coating. This type of non-stick pan is ideal for delicate dishes such as eggs and fish, but keep in mind that non-stick skillets generally have a shorter lifespan compared to stainless steel variants and may need replacement after a few years.

When is a non-stick skillet ideal?

When preparing red or poultry meat, a non-coated stainless steel skillet is ideal. For delicate dishes such as breaded ingredients, fish, eggs, and vegetables, we recommend a non stick skillet. Always use a little oil or butter with these non-stick pans, avoid high temperatures, and refrain from using metal kitchen utensils.


Skillet with lid and handle options

A BEKA skillet pan always comes with a lid, which is not only convenient for retaining heat but also for optimal braising. The lids are equipped with a steam hole to prevent overflow and splatters.

Depending on your preferences, you can purchase a skillet with a long handle or two handles. Larger sizes always come with two short handles for your convenience. Thus, you can easily serve a filled skillet directly from the stove to the table.
