A Frying pan set is usually a group of pans that come together in one box and as a matched set. Depending on personal preference, a frying pan set might be the perfect answer for the cook who wants all of her pans to be part of a matching set. Frying pan sets are often available in many colors to coordinate with any kitchen décor or theme.
A frying pan set gives a cook a lot of options because the set may include anywhere from three pans to 12 pans. For instance, there may be a 12 inch frying pan, 10 inch frying pan, 8 inch frying pan, 6 inch frying pan, 1 quart saucepan, 3 quart saucepan, an 8 inch omelet pan, 10 inch sauté pan, 5 quart Dutch Oven pan, 8 quart stock pot and a 3 quart steamer insert.
Frying pan sets are also available in various materials from nonstick surfaces for easy cleaning to copper, aluminum or stainless steel. Most sets are manufactured with a nonstick coating and tend to be less expensive than steel or copper.
Another advantage of buying a frying pan set is the price, which can be less expensive in the end than buying each pan individually. On the flip side, you may not have enough room or use for all of the pans in the frying pan set.
