Durable, beautiful, and healthy everyday pan/stew pot
I recently devoted an entire day to trying to find a pot/pan set that would fit our needs, be durable, beautiful, healthy (I've heard really horrible things about the non-stick) and stumbled across your "AVACRAFT 18/10 Stainless Steel Everyday Pan with Tri-Ply Base, Chef’s Pan with Glass Lid, Silicone Coated Ergonomic Loop Handle" that we can also use both on the stove-top and on an induction burner. I tried it out with an induction burner I purchased at the same time and absolutely love it. It's the perfect size to replace a pot with lid and skillet with one streamlined option. I can't wait to get more for the rest of my healthy-cooking-class teachers.
Sturdy, attractive, great value
I was looking for a mid-size sauce pan and ordered this because the price and reviews were good. It is a little smaller than I really wanted but that is because I failed to look at the size of pan that I had to determine what I needed. The pan is sturdy and attractive.

Loving This Pan
I wish that AVACRAFT sold more sizes of this pan because it is amazing! I've found myself looking for sauces and such that I can cook in this. I haven't used the lid very much so far, but I love that it has the option to use it as a strainer. I'll admit that I'm not the best cook and some stuff has burnt/boiled over on my watch, but since the pan is stainless steel instead of non-stick, I've just been able to soak and use steel wool to get rid of everything.

Excellent for cooking!
The main quality these pans have is their sensitivity to heat. They heat quickly (and evenly) so I can control the cooking much more precisely. I have used non-stick cookware for years, and I am transitioning back to stainless steel w/aluminum core. My non-stick cookware heated about the same no matter how high or low I set the stove. Not so these! I actually burned the butter (in less than 8 seconds) the first time I used these. Chagrined over the loss of a little butter, but I am thrilled that the pans are that responsive--I simply wiped out the pans, added more butter and turned the stove way down. They worked perfectly! I look forward to browning chicken in these, and quickly sauteing mushrooms, mirepoix and much more!
Love it, just give it a try!
I have a set of Saladmaster cookware that I’ve used for 23 years so it’s hard to impress me with other pots and pans. That said, I was looking for a smaller pan for omelettes and thought I’d take a chance on this Avacraft 8” and I’m glad I did. It’s not as heavy as my Saladmaster so it cooks things a bit faster, but it cooks evenly and nothing was left to cleanup. Just used a little coconut oil to season it when I got it and it performs like it’s non-stick! The lid is an added bonus. Highly recommend.
Fantastic, Sleek, Nondrip, Multifunctional Carafe
Love the shape and smooth lines of this carafe. SO APPRECIATE the nondrip functionality - of great importance to me (I use these for cooking oils). Great price! Looks fantastic when out on countertop. I will buy more! Thank you!

  12. Suzy


    Nice lid. Works great. Hand wash to keep the rubber handle nice.

  13. Mike neveu

    Good buy

    Works great

  14. David R. Keller

    Good Lid, Not A Perfect Fit For Mine

    I ordered this for a different pan than the one it’s intended for. It doesn’t quite fit mine perfectly, but it still works better than no lid. It’s nicely made glass lid with a steel rim. Steel handle riveted into the glass with a nice rubber grip. Has a small vent hole.
    Even though it’s not ideal, I’m still using it and intend to continue doing so rather than buying a new pan.

  15. LBelectric

    Great Pan

    Honestly really nice pan

  16. Rocío Hoefken

  17. Marcus Aurelius

    See-through lid with temperature safe handle

    I have been using this cover on both pots and pans and have been quite pleased with its performance. It is a breeze to clean as well. It is well worth the money.

  18. Robert Olivieri

    Great pan.


  19. Carla Herrmann

    Sturdy lid

    Fits my pan perfectly…should last for a long long time.

  20. JoAnn Dickinson

    This lid fits perfectly!

    The quality is awesome – fits perfectly . I use this lid for my 6 quart “Rival” Crockpot.” I love it!

  21. c.j.

    Very good value to product

    Seems well built, and it is light weight. Lid fits good and doesn’t slide back on when left cocked.
    Ease of use is dependent on your abilities. It heats evenly and does exactly what I need it to.

  22. Kelly

    Satisfied in San Jose

    Love, love, love this pan. Bought it to reduce exposure to Teflon coating and I’m very satisfied with its performance. It heats up nicely and cleans like a dream. It’s big enough to cook for a family. Yep, it’s a winner!

  23. Alice

    Huge and induction ready!

    Great pan. It is huge, works great on my induction stove.

  24. Pali Mike

    Great Lid


  25. donox

    Great lid but

    The handle is bulky for storage. Wish i had purchased the knob type.

  26. Renee Woods

    Pan is closer to weight of cast iron.

    The 12″ tri-ply, full body frying pan is quite heavy, not the average flimsy teflon or ceramic. Have used it to fry hamburger, pancakes and spaghetti sauce. No preheating of pan needed, started on lower heat and with food in pan from the start. Nothing burned or stuck to the pan. Bought the Avacraft pan because others have warped so badly they turned into a WOK! Researched why pans warp and learned that if a pan is not thick enough warping can occur. With the full body tri-ply technique I will be very surprised if this pan warps! Also appreciate the greater depth of the pan that allows extra room for sauces etc. I will invest in more of Avacraft products in the near future.

    Easy to use

  28. Wayne Berlin

    Happy with this purchase

    It fit my pan of the described size. Sturdy quality. Nice coated handle to protect from great.

  29. Eric M.

    Best real lifetime cookware for the price

    Works great . Hope it lasts for a long time. I’m replacing my fiberware set that has scratched and warped. I got about 3 years out of that so called life time set. Time for real life time cookware. To compare Avacraft to anything else at that price range. Avacraft will win

  30. Cynthia Kinkel

    12 inch

    Great product! Exactly what I needed! Thanks, AVACRAFT!

  31. A. J. Lucas

    Sturdy, well designed, good cooking pan!

    Great size! Love the pouring ability but would have like to have had an additional handle on opposite side of longer handle to stabilize pouring heavier dishes. Overall great pan!


    High Quality Pan

    Love the high quality tri-ply body. The multi-layering really helps the pan heat up quickly and evenly. It also has a lid and spouts on both sides. Not commonly found and adds the versatility I was looking for.

  33. Kelly P

    I absolutely love this frying pan & It’s quality!!!

    I absolutely love everything about this frying pan!!!

  34. Christine

    Heats evenly, cleans great, no stains!

    Love it! I’ve been lookin for stainless pots and pans for a very long time now and the ones i’ve tried don’t clean well and stain…
    Great product! I will be getting one piece at a time as I can afford them, thank you!

  35. Kate

    My cooking has leveled up. Exactly what I was looking for

    Just got it and tried it out. This is my first stainless steel pan. I was searching forever for a stainless pan with a lid that would simply work as intended. Fyi I got the full-body, 12-inch; Can’t comment on other models.

    Features i like: Wide, flat, level bottom gives the feeling of a much larger cooking surface. The high walls, lid and pour spout allow you to deglaze, drain, or cook large volumes of food without worry. The pan’s handle is smooth, ergonomic and easy to use, which is crucial for draining without a grip on the other side.

    Features I don’t like: The handle on the glass lid is a little bit small and the grip is awkwardly shaped making it hard to manipulate in my opinion, but it’s not impossible to use. Pretty insignificant, no docked stars for this.

    I’m a novice, and the first thing I wanted to do was test both my cooking skills and the pan by cooking the hardest thing I had within reach. I thawed a thin frozen tilapia fillet to sear with just a little olive oil. First i heated the pan on low until water ball stage, then I added the olive oil, then the fish. Like I said I’m a novice, and I don’t have a fish spatula either, but I managed to flip and plate it in a couple pieces. Not good presentation, but the taste reminded me why I wanted stainless steel in the first place. Can’t get a genuine sear like that with nonstick. It will take me a long time to master, but I feel like I’ve graduated to the next level of my cooking and this pan will be with me the whole way. Will update if I run into any issues.

  36. B .Hilling

    Great size

    Just started using stainless steel and An loving the avacraft 12 inch. I seasoned it fir first use and now use it all the time. Highly recommend.

  37. Carroll Baker

    Great pan and a good price

    I have been looking for a stainless steel pan to replace and old non stick unit. This pan fits my needs perfectly.

  38. Henry A.

    I wish I would have purchased sooner.

    Awesome pan. Great to cook with. Easy to clean. Love the see-through lid. Handles stay cool and not hot so handling the pan while cooking is a breeze without using bulky potholders. Looks beautiful.
    Since receiving this pan I’ve purchased the sauce pans to complete the set.

  39. karen morrison

    Love it!

    Love it!

  40. Mrs. Jones

    Recommend this pan

    Nice and heavy. Heats quickly and evenly.

  41. Daniel T.

    Your Go-to pan!

    It’s a beautiful pan, both in form and function. The see- thru lid is a real plus. Read up on stainless steel cookware to make sure you know how to make the best use of it. This pan has a few different characteristics than conventional pans, and it’s best to familiarize yourself before using it, so there are no surprises. Bon appetit!

  42. John Brooke

    Love it

    Awesome product

  43. Mario A Romero

  44. Jon Avent

    We just bought this pan because of the story behind it!! We cook strictly convection now. This pan is GORGEOUS. I just know it will not pop up in the middle. I have some pans that I paid 5 times as much for that VERY QUICKLY lost the flat shape. Causing all sauces to pool around the food and the center to burn. I HATE THAT. I bought the 12″ and it looks and better and is better built than my IronClad.

  45. vergine sogomonian


    I Like it

  46. J. King

    Best Pan for the Money. Period.

    Was looking for a little larger fry pan for our kitchen. Read the reviews and bought Avacraft 12”. What a pan! Looks great but is a dream on the stove. Excellent heat distribution and holds a ton of food. My wife loves it. Cleans up like new. Great pan and we’re very happy customers.

  47. Sandra Peterson


    I Love Love Love this pan. It heats

  48. Enrico C. Meyer

    Solid built / weak heat distribution

    I reached out to the company and they are sending me a new product once it’s in stock – so I’m upping my rating to 4 stars from the previous 3. Hopefully the new one will work great – will have an update.

    After doing a lot of research, I went with this pan, as it got great reviews and seemed to be just what I was looking for. The pan is solidly built and well made – you can tell that for sure. It’s extremely easy to clean and the handle stays cool. The biggest problem is the heat distribution – it doesn’t seem to do it at all – keeping it’s focus straight on what part is over the burner. I have to pay a lot more attention right now to what I’m cooking, as the part that is over the burner will quickly burn, while everything around it won’t really cook. Here’s a good example for the heat distribution too: several times when I have cooked stocks in other pans, they’ve reduced at pretty normal times. This pan seems to take much, much longer, which I attribute to heat distribution. Again, solidly built, but if you’re getting this pan, I would hope you have a large enough heat source to cover the entire base, as the heat distribution is average at best.

  49. Ellie B

    Good stainless pan

    Everything you’d expect from a good stainless pan: nice even heating, easy clean up, glass see-through lid, and spouts on 2 sides for easy pouring (or for both left and right-handed people). Stainless handle remains remarkably cool. I plan to purchase more sizes.

  50. Sapere Aude

    Awesome Pan!!

    I love my stainless Steel fry pan!!
