A frying pan made of stainless steel

A frying pan or skillet is a shallow cooking utensil generally used on top of a cooktop for frying food.

As with all pans, a thicker bottom allows more even heat distribution while reducing responsiveness to desired heat changes. See the pots and pans article for a discussion of the different materials that may be used.
