The best frying pans of 2023, price / quality rating



  •  A frying pan with a non-stick coating, or made of almost eternal cast iron, is an indispensable thing in the household.

  •  And so that you don’t get confused in the huge variety of pans in 2022, I made a rating that included the most popular models, with a lot of reviews on Yandex.Market, Wildberries and Ozon.

Which is better: a cast iron skillet or a non-stick skillet?

  •  A new cast-iron skillet requires prep – roasting in the oven or on the stovetop with salt, so be prepared for a foul odor. In addition, cast iron cannot be washed in the dishwasher, and it is heavy. But if you want the most durable and safe pan that you can pass on to your children and grandchildren, then cast iron is the perfect candidate to buy.

  •  And if you like variety, and want to change the pan at least every year, then the choice is obvious – non-stick!

The best non-stick pans of 2023

10. Esperto pan with ECLIPSE HB non-stick coating


  • Material: aluminum
  • Non-stick coating: yes
  • Features oven safe, dishwasher safe
  • Top diameter: 24/26/28 cm

  •  I have been using this pan for about two months now, so I will tell you first-hand about its advantages and disadvantages.

  •  The advantages of Esperto include the height of the walls (5,5 cm), so that when cooking, fat and oil do not splash onto the stove. The pan itself is made, but its three-layer coating was developed by Whitford.

  • It is made on a water basis, has a thickness of up to 60 microns and, according to the manufacturer, is reinforced from the inside to increase the resistance of the coating to abrasion and abrasion.
  • In laboratory tests, Eclipse HB withstands up to 60000 cycles in the abrasion test.
  • The coating does not contain perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which releases caustic substances when heated.
  • The pan can be washed in the dishwasher, the non-stick properties of the coating will not be affected.

  •  But what I didn’t like about Esperto was the heated and non-removable handle. With a long cooking process, I do not recommend taking the handle without a pot holder, you can get burned.

Pros and cons high-quality non-stick coating – can be cooked without oil high walls are inexpensive handle heats up not suitable for induction cookers

  • Top diameter: 22/24/26/28 cm

  •  Another quality non-stick frying pan from Kukmara. But this time the coating is not ceramic, but granite. Such coatings are created in a similar way to ceramic coatings – granite particles are added to the polymer composition. But there is no carcinogenic PFOA in the granite coating.

  •  Due to the strength of the granite coating, even stainless steel spatulas, as well as stainless steel spoons and forks, can be used when cooking.

  •  Users praise Kukmara Granit Ultra for its comfortable wood-look bakelite handle, ease of maintenance and decent bottom and wall thickness (6 mm and 4.5 mm respectively). In such a pan, food stays warm for a long time.

The pan cannot be used in the oven, but it is suitable for all types of stoves, including induction.

  •  The manufacturer does not recommend washing this model in the dishwasher. As a non-stick coating, a two-layer Pfluon, based on granite, was chosen here. It does not emit PFOA and is safe for humans and the environment.

Pros and cons the handle does not heat up the warranty period is 2 years it is easy to wash some models there is a marriage – a slightly curved bottom, due to which the oil rolls to the edges of the pan

4. Frying pan Dream Granite 18


  • Material: aluminum
  • Non-stick coating: granite
  • Features: oven safe, dishwasher safe, cool handle
  • Top diameter: 18/20/26 cm

  •  A small non-stick frying pan is ideal for cooking for 1-2 persons. It has a thick bottom (6 mm), but not too high 4 cm walls, so if you like to cook foods with a lot of sunflower oil, then it is better to choose another model. But for cooking scrambled eggs and pancakes, stewing vegetables and meat, warming up yesterday's food, Mechta Granit 18 fits perfectly.

  •  This frying pan has a high-quality non-stick coating without PFOA, up to 55 microns thick. Of course, scratching this pan with a fork is not recommended, but you can use a steel cooking spatula if you are careful.

And the presence of diamond dust gives the coating strength, so you can safely eat from the pan with a fork or use a steel spatula.

  •  Also, the diamond coating allows you to cook without oil at all or with a minimal addition of it. And the service life of Gastroguss Diamond Crystal is solid – about three years.

  •  Due to the thick walls (5 mm) and the bottom (10 mm), this pan evenly distributes and keeps heat for a long time.

  • Material: aluminum
  • Non-stick coating: marble

The best cast iron pans of 2023

10. Frying pan on a wooden stand "Cow"


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 24 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  I would like the dishes to be not only practical, but also pleasing to the eye, so that it would not be a shame to put it on the table and give it to people. "Cow" fully meets these requirements. It is made – you can guess – in the form of a cow, with a flat bottom, and it comes with a wooden stand. The manufacturer added clamps to the smooth wooden surface so that the pan held firmly on it and did not slip.

  •  The “Cow” has a removable cast-iron handle, which means that the pan can be used in the oven. Buyers are very satisfied with the commercial qualities of the pan, and add that there is no better gift for steak lovers. However, the pan is not processed at the factory, so you will have to carry out a number of procedures before the first use – ignite with salt, wipe with oil, and so on.

Pros and consOriginal designStand includedRemovable handleSuitable for ovenNo

9. Saucepan Staub Cast Iron ChisTera


  • Material: enameled cast iron
  • Top diameter: 24 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  The most expensive stewpan in the "cast iron" rating. This is an impressive product made of enamelled cast iron (which means you don’t have to bother with surface treatment) of a pleasant cherry color (it’s not a shame to put it on the table). The manufacturer still rests on manual labor and the uniqueness of products – they say, each is cast in its own form of sand, which is destroyed after use. Which is understandable for the European market, where cast iron cookware is more of an expensive exotic for gourmets.

  •  The pan is suitable both for the oven (the handle is brass or nickel, it will not suffer from heating), and for induction cookers. Enamel two layers – both external and internal. However, despite the treated surface, some operations will still have to be carried out: slowly warm the dishes and wipe the inside with vegetable oil. And cast iron, even processed, is a capricious material and is afraid of sudden changes in temperature.

8. Frying pan Lodge Moose L9OGWLMO


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 26 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  The main decoration of the frying pan from Lodge is the artistically executed bottom with the image of an elk. However, when viewed from above, this is an ordinary pancake pan with low sides and a molded handle, dense, high-quality, without cavities, with a smooth matte surface.

  •  The small size will allow you to put it on the stove, but for optimal performance it is better to use a large induction hob or gas stove. Cast iron is heavy, so it is best suited for baking dense yeast pancakes and pancakes – for ordinary thin pancakes, you need to raise and tilt the pan, and this is not so easy for a woman's hand.

  •  And the molded handle cuts into the palm even with a towel, so I recommend buying a silicone one. The surface has already been treated, but you still have to warm it up after washing – so that rust does not form.

Pros and Cons

7. Cast iron saj BARAKA


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 40 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  The saj frying pan is an invention of Central Asian cuisine, from where it penetrated to the Balkans and to us. It is a slightly concave or nearly flat cast iron product that can be used on both sides.

  • With a concave – cook meat and vegetable dishes;
  • with a convex – bake cakes (plain or stuffed), pita bread or pita bread.

  •  It is best to use a frying pan in the country (brazier) or gas stove – most modern induction cookers simply do not have burners of a suitable diameter that would evenly heat the entire surface. The handles of the pan are also cast iron, which means you can safely put it on the fire. Customers really like to use it in the country – especially when cooking on charcoal. They say it tastes divine.

  •  An additional plus of the saj from Baraka is that it can also work as a lid for a cauldron (12 l), which is produced by the same company. So, if you have plans for grand gatherings in the country with a full cauldron of pilaf, you know what dishes to take.

Pros and cons high-quality casting thick-walled can work as a lid from a cauldron too large for apartment use

6. Pancake pan Maysternya T301


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 24 cm.
  • Use in the oven: no

  •  A dense, heavy, high-quality frying pan of good casting and with a plump wooden handle that does not heat up and fits well in the palm of your hand. The surface perfectly holds the temperature, and the pancakes turn out to be what you need – openwork, evenly colored and very tasty.

  •  A comfortable wooden handle makes cooking very easy – this will be especially appreciated by those who have dealt with molded handles and constantly falling potholders.

  •  And although the manufacturer claims that the pan has already been treated with oil at the factory, it is better to carry out all the usual operations for cast iron – ignite, grease several times with oil, dry it on the stove after washing.

  •  Maysternya T301 costs very little by cast-iron standards, I advise you to carefully examine each copy before buying – judging by some reviews, the handle can be drilled crookedly, it is inconvenient to hold.

Pros and cons good molding comfortable wooden handle price there are instances with a crookedly drilled handle

5. Frying pan Seaton Ch2440d


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 24 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  A distinctive feature of this pan is a removable wooden handle. Now not only do you not have to mess around with oven mitts, but the pan can be used both on the stove and in the oven.

  •  Due to its small size, the product weighs a little for cast iron cookware – 1.7 kg. It has a thick bottom (4.5 mm), which evenly distributes heat. But the walls are low – 4 mm, so it is better not to cook food with a lot of oil. Seaton Ch2440d is suitable for all types of plates.

Pros and cons high-quality molding wooden removable handle can be used in the oven handle attachment is flimsy

4. Grill pan Kama dishes gs8063


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 28 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  It would seem that a frying pan is such a simple thing, but just a couple of additional tools – and it will shine with new colors. A grill pan from the Kama plant is one such example. This is a round pan with a ribbed bottom that is great for cooking meat and fish steaks and frying vegetables.

  •  But two significant additions distinguish it from other grill pans: a removable handle and a press lid. Judging by the reviews, the steaks come out just great. Also, the pan can be used for baking in the oven. The model from “Kamskaya utensils” is good for everyone, however, it has one tiny drawback – the shape is round, but for the maximum number of steaks per unit surface, a square is still better.

  •  The pan doesn't have the factory non-stick coating, so you'll have to handle it by hand. But after a couple of hours of torment, you have practically indestructible, eternal dishes in which nothing burns.

3. Lodge grill pan L8SGP3


  • Material: cast iron
  • Non-stick coating: yes
  • Top diameter: 26 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  An imposing square side with a ribbed bottom that marketers claim allows you to cook healthier food – excess fat accumulates between the metal "ribs". In addition to frying on the stove, the pan can be used in the oven, on the grill and even in the usual traditional grill, since the molded one-piece handle allows.

  •  The steaks, according to customers, are excellent, with beautiful dark stripes on the surface. And, most importantly, the pan is already non-stick coated, so no dancing with roasting and oiling is required.

2. Frying pan Brizoll HoReCa H181825


  • Material: cast iron
  • Top diameter: 18 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  A very tiny frying pan with low sides is perfect for breakfast – a single serving, scrambled eggs, a couple of toasts (since the frying pan is square, not round, three slices of bread fit without problems), one sausage.

  •  The dimensions of the pan will allow you to comfortably use it as a plate. The handles at Brizoll HoReCa are made with “ears”, so you should either buy a separate removable handle or use silicone tacks.

  •  For those who want beauty, there is a variation of the same frying pan, but with a separate wooden stand. It can be used both for cooling and serving – serving. The model with the Brizoll H181825-D stand is called and, of course, it will cost more.

Pros and Cons

1. PROFFI Kitchen cast iron pan


  • Material: cast iron
  • Coating: Teflon
  • Top diameter: 26 cm.
  • Oven use: yes

  •  Not so commonn kitchens are frying pans that take the best of both worlds: traditional cast iron cookware and modern non-stick coating. This means that you do not need to ignite the pan with salt, rub it with oil, dry it carefully so that it does not rust. Just take it and use it as is.

  •  Moreover, the bottom of the pan is treated in a special way from the inside – it resembles a honeycomb. This was done in order to prevent the surface from being scratched by sharp objects, and the oil to spread evenly over the entire diameter.

  •  And yet, according to Proffi Kitchen marketers, the latest technologies make it possible to reduce the wall thickness of a cast-iron product without sacrificing its advantages – long-term heat retention and strength. The frying pan has a metal handle that gets very hot when used – so you will have to get oven mitts or silicone gloves.
