A frying pan is a versatile and must-have piece of cookware. We've tested a range of 24–26cm induction compatible 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.

Our comprehensive comparison table lists specifications like weight, base diameter and thickness, as well as which pans are oven-safe and which ones can go in a dishwasher (though we've found in most cases handwashing is advised). Our Recommended list shows you at a glance which pans topped our rigorous tests.

Find out more about how to get the most out of your non-stick frypans.

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.
