A frypan is a versatile and must-have piece of cookware. We've tested a range of 24–26cm frypans and skillets from Tefal, Scanpan, Essteele and more to find out which ones give the best results and are worthy of a spot in your kitchen. 

Our lab test results will tell you which frypans:

  • perform the best
  • are easy to use
  • have durable non-stick surfaces.

Note: All the frypans we've tested are compatible for use on induction cooktops.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

    We assess the evenness of heat distribution by cooking pancakes. We also comment on sticking for non-stick frypans by frying an egg, however, this result doesn't form part of the overall score.
