In the modern media landscape, it’s rare to find myriad news outlets all saying the same thing. So when The New York Times, CNN, Business Insider, Food And Wine, Better Homes & Gardens, Bon Appétit, Serious Eats, Food Network and CNET all declare a $28 fry pan from Amazon the nonstick skillet for your home kitchen, you should probably pay attention.

As Amazon’s bestseller in the woks and stir-fry pans category, this 10-inch aluminum nonstick pan from Tramontina boasts thousands of 5-star reviews. It’s dishwasher safe, can go in the oven up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and works with gas, electric and ceramic glass stove tops. The cast stainless handle comes with a removable silicone protector for better grip and heat protection as you’re cooking and the satin exterior finish is easy to clean and looks sharp when hanging on a rack or resting on your stovetop.


Made from commercial-grade, heavy-gauge aluminum that evenly and quickly distributes heat, the Tramontina’s reinforced nonstick interior keeps food from sticking on, saving you time and elbow grease. Weighing a little over 2 1/2 pounds, its not cumbersome to lift from a low drawer and is easy on the wrist as you use it.

Remember to care for your nonstick cookware properly by hand-washing it at room temperature with a soft, non-abrasive material.

The pleased reviewers include both chefs comparing Tramontina to heavy-duty restaurant brands and folks who don’t like to cook or clean, but do like scrambled eggs. Reviewers confirm the even heating of the pan and frequently state how easy it is to clean. For less than $30, its a great addition to any kitchen and will likely become your everyday favorite for pancake breakfasts or reheating last night’s pizza.
