Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

Vollrath Induction Cooktops

Take a tour through Vollrath University and learn what they have to offer in the world of induction cooktops. Learn why the only fire a chef really needs is inside!

The next time you order off a menu or visit a buffet, think about this: there's a good chance your food was prepared, cooked or served with Vollrath small wares and food service equipment. In addition to their traditional gas and electric equipment options, Vollrath's expanding line of induction products are heating up the food industry. With more precise and energy efficient cooking, that's safer and faster. Today we're in Sheboygan, Wisconsin to find out what makes Vollrath so hot. For Almost 145 years, the Vollrath company has been manufacturing high quality small wares and food service equipment right here in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Today we continue to be family owned and we continue to grow through new product acquisitions and innovations of our own. So with 9 manufacturing facilities across North American, Europe and Asia, we continue to supply a wide variety of products to many international food service markets. The Mirage series is durable by design and able to withstand the daily use and abuse of a professional kitchen, ensuring their equipment is built to last. Our industrial design team gets involved in the very beginning stages of product development all the way to the team process to the end. It's a very integrated process. A good example of this is our Mirage induction buffet warmer, which is a terrific collaboration of industrial design and engineering. So what we ended up with is a very sophisticated looking product but it's very robust, very efficient, using induction heat, so really we've improved on the customer serving experience. What's really nice about this product is that you can connect three of them together and just have one cord going to the wall. Simple, smart, safe. The team at Vollrath works diligently to evolve induction technology inside and out. As far as R and D we work closely with our customers to understand the rigors of their kitchens, because a commercial kitchen can be very difficult on equipment. We then work on advanced development here as well and we marry the two to design something that works the best for them with aesthetics, reliability, and fine control in mind the whole way through. Our expansive product selection makes us a one stop shop for our customers in induction. Products themselves started in this flat state; they were primary cooking and people loved them for the efficiency of the units and the control. If I can dial something in here and get an exact power setting each and every time and we can control it by time as well, we have very repeatable results that anyone can achieve. I think one of the biggest innovations though has come when we have taken the coil now and brought it up the sides of the unit. So this now provides very even heating around the soup pot. Typically when you see on the inside of the pot, if you ever go to a soup bar and you see all the soup around the top edge, that's just waste. Operators really love how even this heats. We have a chain that has reported to us over a 30% increase in their food yields. I mean that's real money and people just love the waterless design. Here at Vollrath they've built an entire training facility for food service professionals to provide a more hands on experience. As our business evolved we recognized the need to have an industry leading training facility. We wanted a space that customers could actually come in and touch and feel the products. We try to be like the ivy league of the food service university industry, if there is such a thing. In the university we have three areas: the first area is our classroom area and this is where the details really come out, we train on the features and benefits of the products. Then we have our showroom area. This is a space where the customers or guests can go into and touch the products and feel what we talked about in the training. Then the test area, coming in here and using the product is a critical step for a lot of our customers, it really brings everything together. These best in class products definitely take the cake. Making a product look engaging and safe and intuitive but at the same time robust and commercial can be a challenge, but we like the challenge and we're really pretty good at it. Vollrath's induction technology line continues to outperform every day. Proving that the only fire a chef really needs is inside. Bon Appétit!

    pan great fry heat heavy hot price cleaned nicely option
  • Arrange by 
    The Vollrath Optio 12 1/2” Natural Finish Fry Pan is a great quality Fry Pan. It is heavy weight and easy to clean. The price is great! This is perfect for residential and commercial use.
    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.
    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.
    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.
