How to pick the best pots and pans for your kitchen

Don't know your sauté pan from your skillet? We're here to help you choose the right pan for the job.

Saucepans

Saucepans are typically deeper and taller than other pans, and have one long handle. They can be used for everything from heating sauces and soups to cooking rice and vegetables.
Best for - boiling and heating.

Frying pan and skillet

These shallow pans have sloping sides and a wide, flat cooking surface. Unlike saucepans, they are mainly used for cooking foods quickly over a high heat.
Best for - cooking at higher heats.

Sauté pans

Similar to a frying pan but deeper and with straight sides instead of sloping ones. They are specifically designed for searing meat and sautéing foods like vegetables.
Best for - cooking multiple ingredients together.

Woks

A wok is a pan with a round bottom and high, slanted sides. It is commonly used in Asian cooking for braising, deep-frying, searing, steaming and stir-frying foods.
Best for - quickly searing and stir-frying.

Griddle pans

Round or square in shape, these pans have raised ridges to keep food above the juices that are released during the cooking process. They are mostly used for grilling and searing meat.
Best for - healthier frying.

Stock pots

Stock pots allow you to cook dishes like soups, stews and casseroles in large quantities. They traditionally come with a covering lid and two side handles for lifting.
Best for - stews, stocks and soups.
