Best Recipes to Make with a Stainless Steel Frying Pan

We won’t say you can cook anything in an Avacraft 8-inch or 10-inch stainless steel frying pan — no one is that good. However, there are some great recipes (other than eggs) that seem made to be cooked in a skillet, for example:

Fried Chicken

You can do better than take out for this simple, traditional favorite! Avacraft’s tri-ply stainless steel heats quickly and evenly, so your oil does the same. You’ve enough space to fry several pieces (even large breasts) at the same time. Just bread the pieces and gently place them in the oil, cooking until thoroughly brown on all sides. Since preheated stainless is non-porous, you won’t be frying in the same oil your mother used decades ago and cleanup will be a snap.

Fish (with sides)

Preheat your skillet then prep by sautéing asparagus in a little olive oil with salt and pepper then set them aside. Place skinned fillets of halibut in the pan with some water or wine and lemon juice and cover to steam a few minutes then set them on the platter with the asparagus. Finish the dish by sautéing shallots with lemon slices and a pinch of salt then adding water or wine for a few more minutes then add butter, dill and parsley and serve it all up to the approving smiles of your guests. (And, there’s only one pan to clean up!)


I don’t know who this Herb guy is, but you’ll love his herb fritters! Mix yogurt and herbs in a small bowl then cover and chill while you grate zucchini, potato and onion. Set the vegetables on a mesh sieve set; let them sit and drip for half-an-hour to drip-dry. Mix eggs and more herbs in a medium bowl then mix in the zucchini blend. Sprinkle with flour and baking powder and spoon scoops of mixture into your preheated frying pan. Cook about 3 minutes each side then set on a rack and trickle on the yogurt sauce.


You’ve waited (or waded) patiently through the main courses. Now, it’s time to indulge your sweet tooth: “Easy as pie” they say, and, finally, they are proven right! Preheat your skillet, melt butter then stir in brown sugar and line the skillet with a pie crust. Tossing apples in lemon juice prevent browning, mixing with sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg makes them mouth-watering. Layer half the apples, some caramel sauce and the rest of the apples in the crust then cut another crust into strips to create the traditional lattice crust. Bake 40 minutes (not to worry, Avacraft skillets can take it!) and allow to cool. Yeah, right — scoop on that ice cream and go a-la-mode!

The Craftsman’s Tools 

Even a master craftsman can’t create a masterpiece with cheap and shoddy tools. You can spend a fortune and not get good equipment at a thousand Internet sites but you really only need one URL: Avacraft products are as good as (and usually better than) anything on the market. The Web is filled with great recipes for every taste and style. You just lack the right tools — which Avacraft has in abundance.
