Beka Chef Eco-Logic 100% Fry Pan

Eco-friendly nonstick skillet

Reviewers say the Beka Chef Eco-Logic 100% Fry Pan offers excellent nonstick performance without the chemicals found in Teflon.

Lodge Logic 12-Inch Skillet

Best cast-iron skillet

The Lodge Logic 12-Inch Skillet is the top performer in one professional test, cooking every dish to perfection. The pan comes pre-seasoned (coated with baked-on vegetable oil); giving it a surface that owners say releases food nearly as well as nonstick pans. With proper care, this durable pan will last for years.
