Constructed of durable high grade aluminum, this pan is easy to clean and will last through everyday use. Fry pans are designed to sit flat on burners avoiding "gassing" which occurs when the open flame climbs, the sides of the pan and attaches directly to the oil. Gassing adversely affects food taste. Fry pans are deep sided which makes stirring and turning contents easier. Eclipse 3-layer non-stick coating provides superlative durability and food release.
