Frying Pans Etc.

I counted the different varieties of frying pans I have recently when I added a red cast iron enamel grill to my hanging rack. I've got 17, that's not counting the 2 or 3 I have in the trailer for camping.

Although most aren't technically frying pans that's what I call them.

There are 4 cast iron ones - an 8 incher with a wooden handle, another 8 inch one, a 10 inch my husband had when he was single 40 years ago, and a nice big 12 inch Ware from my parents, oh and an old 8 inch Wagner Ware round griddle I bought at a garage sale. 

The 11 inch red enamel grill has a panini press that I've used for steak. Cooks really fast.

I was super excited when I found the green 10 inch Le Creuset enamel  braiser for $1.00 at another garage sale. Came with a glass lid.

8 inch turquoise Le Creuset at another garage sale.

There's a cast aluminum Danish Ebelskiver pan with 7 round indents for apple pancake balls. Haven't used that one yet, but it looks interesting. I think I found it at the re-cycle take it or leave it in town. Guess I should look up a recipe online.

3 different sized nice deep ones for those really big one pot meals that seem to get bigger as they cook.

An 11 inch square light weight grill that works perfectly for frying bacon. Have to watch the heat though. Got that with points a few years ago at Co-op. 

2 copper bottomed stainless steel ones that came with my Martha Stewart pot set, 8 and 10 inches.

A 4 inch steel one that's so old it is blackened and crusty. Never used it but I like the looks of it too, can't remember where I got it, probably a garage sale. I'm curious to know why it has an 8 stamped on the handle.

And lastly an 8 inch steel Comal tortilla pan I bought in Yuma Arizona last year, and yes I have used it a few times to make corn tortillas.

The stainless stand with holes is for cooking stuffed jalapenos on the BBQ. Used it a few times, works good. My sister-in-law gave it to me for Christmas, thanks Judy B.

Wow that's a lot of pans, and there are some real beauties there!! Makes my collection of 3 look a little sad - do you use them all? :-)

Most of them, some only once or twice a year.
