The Cuisinart 622-30H Chef's Classic Non-Stick Hard Anodized 12 in. Open Skillet with Helper Handle has sloped sides and a wide flat bottom for frying fish, sauteing onions and garlic, or browning big batches of chicken. The open design of the skillet maximizes the cooking surface and makes it easy to rearrange food as it is cooking. With the non-stick surface, little oil or butter is needed to prevent foods from sticking. The long handle offers perfect balance to provide exceptional control when gently tossing food. With unsurpassed heat distribution, the hard anodized construction heats quickly and spreads heat evenly, eliminating hot spots. An additional helper handle makes it easy to maneuver this large pan on the stovetop.
