"Kuhn Rikon": How a metal disc becomes a cooking pot
Pots + Pans
A frying pan, frypan, or skillet is a pan used for frying, searing, and browning foods. It is typically a 20 to 30 cm diameter (8 to 12 inch) flat pan with sides that are much lower than the pan diameter and usually (though not always) flared outwards, and no lid. In contrast, a pan of similar diameter with sides of height comparable to the diameter and a lid is called a Saucepan.
