Wondering whether you need a frying pan or sauté pan? Although they look similar and can often be used interchangeably, sauté and frying pans do have a few subtle—but noteworthy—differences: A sauté pan always comes with a lid and features straight sides and a larger surface area, making it ideal for liquid cooking methods such as poaching or braising, as well as for containing messy sauces or other ingredients that may slosh over the side. A frying pan, often called a skillet, features sloped sides, can come with or without a lid, and is ideal for a wide range of stovetop tasks, including pan frying, stir frying, and sautéeing.
