Saute and chef pans FAQ

Fry pan vs saute pan

The main differences between a fry pan and a saute pan relate to the depth of the pan and the inclusion of a lid. Frying pans tend to be shallow, allowing you to use less oil to fry your food, while saute pans have high, straight walls that can hold more food. Saute pans also always come with a lid, whereas fry pans will not - frying with a lid on will trap moisture and steam, preventing your food from getting crunchy and caramelised!

What can you cook in a saute pan?

Saute pans are very useful for various methods of cooking, including searing, simmering and even baking in the oven! Saute pans have a higher flat surface area than a fry pan, giving you more space to brown and sear large cuts of meat. The included lid also makes it possible to cook things like a casserole or stew on the stove.

What is a chef pan?

A chef pan is a large, reasonably flat pan with rounded sides, a fitted lid and either two handles or one handle and one stick handle on either side. Extremely versatile, the humble chef pan can do everything from frying a steak to reducing a stew or creating a creamy risotto - they're a must-have for every kitchen!
