Customer questions about this product

What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.

For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.

Thanks to its aluminum clad bottom, this 12 1/2" Vollrath 3812 fry pan heats quickly and evenly, making it perfect for frying, sauteing, searing and more! Its durable brushed stainless steel surface distributes heat quickly, and won't pit, discolor, or transfer flavors. This induction fry pan's large radius corners help minimize waste and enable easy cleaning, and the handle is welded to the pan to present a uniform construction while allowing for a perfectly smooth interior.

    pan great heat hot nicely fry handle heavy high kitchen

    This is a big ole, honkin fry pan that's built to last and performs like a boss in the kitchen. Use it heavily for larger batches of pan frying.

    Heat conduction is amazing on this pan. If you want to do high heat pan searing without worrying about ruining non-stick surface - this is the product to get at a fraction of cost of most other similar products on the market. I've been using my pan for about 2 years and love it. It does not look nice a shiny any more (I work it hard), but functionally it's like the day it was bought. Cleaning can be a chore sometimes, but if you soak it a little bit this is not a problem any more.

    Pan seared meat sticks on Vollrath Fry Pan

    It's a rather heavy pan for this size but it does conduct heat very well with no hot spots. The handle doesn't get too hot. I highly recommend it.

    Cooking a steak on high heat.

    A great stainless steel pan for half the price. Very durable and resists warping really well. All around a great buy for any kitchen on a budget.

    This is a great all-purpose saute pan. I utilize it for gluten-free cooking because it can be easily cleaned and sanitized, and doesn't scratch like teflon. The only down-side is that it is rather heavy, so I have to use two hands to lift it. It is quite sturdy and seems to be a good long-term option. Great pan for the price.

    I like how inexpensive, but high quality this fry pan is. The handle hasn't gotten too hot for me to touch, and it hangs nicely from the pot rack.
