What Is A Deep Frying Pan

In everyday life, it is known as a stewpan. On the surface, it does resemble the most common frying pan. It is equally round but much roomier. 

The enlarged capacity is an important, but not the only, feature. The frying pan's construction ensures that food is perfectly cooked without being overcooked or made too dry. The deep frying pan is the dishwasher's answer to the health food trend. The trend calls for, among other things, not fried food but stewed food. That is, cooked in its juice, mild sauce, or broth. The usual crispy crust - which you get with traditional frying - contains a lot of oil. It adds calories to the dish but has no benefits. Cooking in a deep frying pan requires much less oil - or you can do without it altogether.

Design Features

This is the best braising pan that's been thought through to the last detail. Modern technology and materials have made it aesthetically pleasing and durable.

1. Body: The body is made of quality metal. The most common metals are cast iron, coated aluminum, and stainless steel. They are practical, do not require complex preparation for the operation, and are easy to maintain.

2. Handle: The handle is made of heat-resistant material that does not get hot, does not emit a specific smell, and does not melt around the edges—generally thermoplastic or wood. There are models with a removable holder.

3. Perfectly Flat Bottom - The bottom is reinforced with an additional metal insert. This is a special ferromagnetic alloy made of steel and aluminum. It increases the speed at which the cookware heats up and makes it suitable for any type of hob. This is a deep pan for the induction hob.

4. Lid: The lid comes as part of the package or can be purchased separately. It's essential for the braising process. It protects the kitchen surface from dirt and also keeps moisture inside. Made of impact-resistant glass and equipped with a steam outlet.

5. The Coating Is Applied In The Factory. It's a non-stick top layer that protects the ingredients in the food from sticking, reduces oil consumption, and protects the body from damage. The best frying pans have a non-stick coating based on natural components such as ceramic and stone.

How Deep Frying Pans Differ In Terms Of Material

Cast-Iron Frying Pan- A cast-iron frying pan is universal, suitable for both the cooker and the oven. The metal has a melting point above 1,100 degrees Celsius with natural non-stick properties. The porous surface absorbs oil well. This prevents the food from sticking, but the first non-stick layer of oil has to be formed by hand. 
The modern version is a lightweight cast iron - a variant adapted for everyday use. These pots are up to 50 percent lighter than conventional pots. At the factory, they are also provided with a non-stick coating. This coating protects the hull from rust, prevents the food from sticking, and allows cooking without oil pre-treatment. This cookware has a lifespan of more than 7 years.

Heavy-Duty Aluminium Frying Pan

This heavy-duty aluminum frying pan is the vessel for every day. It’s light, sturdy, and corrosion-resistant.

 At home, aluminum is used in combination with the factory-applied non-stick coating. It dampens the natural reactivity of the material, excludes direct contact with the food, and reduces oil consumption. 

This cookware is ideal for cooking on the cooker top at temperatures up to 230 degrees. It will not warp under high heat, it will not crack, and it will not split even if it is dropped. It heats up immediately and is not afraid of regular contact with water. Depending on the frequency of use and the type of casing, the deep aluminum pan lasts between a year and 5 years. Thin pressed pans wear out more quickly, while deep cast aluminum and forged roasting pans last longer.

Stainless Steel Frying Pan- A stainless steel frying pan is a very striking piece of cookware. The shiny metal surface is its calling card. 

Stainless steel is corrosion-free in principle and melts at around 1300 degrees centigrade. Suitable for cooker and oven. It cannot be dropped, scratched, or chipped. The material is difficult to damage. It heats up quickly, and it does not need a non-stick layer. With proper use, the food on stainless steel does not stick. However, modern models are sometimes covered with a factory protective layer to facilitate operation. In this case, the frying pan is recommended for cooking on the cooker at a temperature of up to 230 degrees.

What Handles Deep Frying Pans Have

A deep-bottom frying pan, sometimes called a stewpan, is a type of cookware designed for everyday use. It must have a strong and sturdy body and a handle that is comfortable to grip. Otherwise, the red-hot roaster will slip out accidentally. In the kitchen, housewives' hands are often wet.

In the classic version, the handle is long and solidly molded or permanently soldered to the body. This ensures it will not break off under the griddle's weight. However, there are other, more modern options on the market. For example, a deep pan with two handles on the side. It looks like a big saucepan. It has two handles on the sides and a semi-circular shape.

A deep pan with a removable handle is easy to move from the cooker to the oven and back again. You detach the handle, put it in the oven with the ingredients, and take out a 100% ready meal an hour later. In any case, the handles are made of materials that do not melt and do not give off an unpleasant smell. They are often made of bakelite which is a non-slip, heat-resistant plastic.

Which Lid Is Suitable?

A deep frying pan with a lid is a common set. The lid has several important functions. It acts as a protective shield and keeps the cooker and work surfaces in the kitchen free from soiling. It keeps moisture inside the container, which is useful for stewing. The lid also protects your hands from hot steam and small oil droplets.

When buying, choose a pan with clear, impact-resistant glass. This way, you can visually check whether the food is cooked or not. Make sure the base has a hole for releasing steam, and the glass is supported by a steel or silicone rim.

Types Of Deep Frying Pans

1. Classic. This is a round deep pan designed for most household cooktops. The shape of the base is identical to that of the burner, so it's sturdy. Ideally, they have the same diameter, which minimizes heat loss during cooking. Meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, and mushrooms can be stewed in this pot.

2. Saucepan. It's a deep saucepan with high sides, a lid, a thick bottom, and two pot-type handles on either side. Not only can it be used for stewing but also for boiling. Suitable for all foods, single or compound dishes, and even soups.

3. Deep Wok. This is a large conical work originally from China. It is designed for preparing traditional Asian dishes based on noodles and rice with the addition of meat and vegetables. Another feature of the wok is its lightness. The container is complemented by an extra long handle, which allows you to turn the ingredients by tossing them in the body without any spatulas. As a result, the pieces of food give off juice, which evenly permeates the entire meal.

Advantages Of A Deep Non-Stick Frying Pan

Do you prepare tasty stews daily? You need a non-stick deep frying pan. All deep frying pans are equipped with a special non-stick layer. Classic pans, sauté pans and woks. This gives the cookware a whole host of performance benefits:

- Ingredients do not burn/stick to the bottom or sides;

- Mechanical damage/scratches do not remain on the housing;

- The dishes are easier to care for and have a longer service life;

- The total amount of oil used is reduced, and dietary meals can be prepared;

- Ingredients are cooked to perfection without overcooking, retaining their juices;

- Meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, and mushrooms are lightly browned.

Non-stick pans have a stylish design, high-quality components, and a strong connection of constructional parts.

What To Cook In These Pans

The best non-stick pans are the right cookware for cooking all kinds of food. Tender meat, poultry, and fish in cream, tomato, and cream sauces turn out great. All the vegetables give off their full flavor and aroma, and the potatoes soften and melt in your mouth. As for the mushrooms, they take on the tangy and bright flavor of the ingredients with which they are stewed. 

Deep frying pans can be used to prepare simple, single-course dishes and complex delicacies. Homemade pilaf, beef with beans, pork with prunes, chicken shanks with herbs and sour cream, etc.
