What size Fry pan?
First I want to say thank you to anyone who may respond to this Noob cook. I am looking to start off a great set of cookware, that I will keep for many many years to come. I am looking at the Demeyere goods. I want to buy:
1 frying pan
1 stock pot
1 saute pan
1 sauce pot
I noticed they seem to have mostly 11 in or 12.6 in frying pans. Can I get away with an 11 incher for most situations, or do I really need the bigger size? What size is best for all of the above pieces. Thanks again for your help!!!!
hi, by now you might hqave your answer...i have been cooking for 50 years and am now enjoying the decades of experience by being able to be very spontqaneouss and just knowing what works...size pan, what are you cooking and for how many give clues to the size pan required..most saute, you do not want to crowd items, to prevent steaming.
i can help lots more if you wish. Happy Cooking! Gremolata
if youre not completely sold on Demeyere there are some other options out there...the All Clad LTD is on sale everywhere right now, their sets contain all that...additionally Williams sonoma actually puts together really great sets in a bunch of different sizes and brands (7 pc to 27 pc) that dont have much of those who needs this pots and pans some other sets have.
If you are really going to buy all these at once a set is your best option they are always about 30% off the open stock prices
