Viking Professional's 8" non-stick fry pan with 5-Ply construction maximizes heat transfer and heat distribution while reducing energy usage. The PFOA free, Eterna non-stick surface makes cooking eggs or omelets easy, requiring minimum amounts of cooking oils or fats while retaining the searing ability of a traditional fry pan. The extra large 12" surface helps cook larger quantities evenly and efficiently. The exterior layer is magnetic stainless steel that makes it suitable for induction stovetops. The next layer of aluminum alloy bonds to the middle layer, which is 3004 aluminum. The fourth layer is an aluminum alloy bonded to the interior 18/10 high-grade stainless steel. Together, these five layers work in unison to transfer heat quickly and evenly through the bottom and sides of the pan. The Viking-designed ergonomic handle takes stress off of the wrist, making cooking easier and enjoyable, while reducing heat transfer to keep the handle cool. The 5-ply construction is designed to be used in the oven the same way professional chefs use their cookware in a restaurant kitchen. Stove, oven, and grill friendly up to 600F degrees.
