Also, kitchen has contains a lot of differences types of kitchen tools, such as knife, plates, bowls, spoons, folks, kitchen pot, oven, and etc. But have one kitchen tool was my favorite, that is Frying Pan. Now, throughout this essay, I will tell you all about this great kitchen tool. Frying pan is a one important kitchen tools, it can help us cooking, fried, even can use it as a shield, because frying pans was made by medal. Before I start descript frying pan, I will bring you guy back to the past talking about the history of frying pan. In ancient of Mesopotamia, copper frying pans were appeared at time. It make from copper metal and iron metal. In ancient of Greece, they called teganon. Meanwhile, in ancient of Rome, they were called it Patella or Sartago. Pans derives from the Old English panna. Before a model frying pan, a commonly used cast iron cooking pan called a spider. It had a handle and three legs used to stand up in the coals and ashes of the fire. This happened at mid-19th century at Europe. Cooking pots and pans with legless, flat bottoms were designed when cooking stoves became popular; this period of the late 19th century saw the introduction of the flat cast iron skillet. This is how our frying pans come from at that time. Nowadays, a standard frying pans that we using is typically 200 to 300mm of the pan’s diameter, and it has a long handle, and no lid. For the large frying pan, it has a small handle which is opposite to the main handle, for easy to hand up the frying pan. Normally, frying pan was make from some materials, like Aluminum, stainless steel, copper, cast iron, or Clad stainless steel with an aluminum or copper core. A coating is

We can use the frying pans to fried fish, fried egg, fried noodle and etc. Frying pan can be divided into two types: which is Non-stick frying pan and electric frying pan. Non-stick frying pan is a process for bonding the Teflon to the chemically-roughen aluminum was patented in France by Marc Gregoire in 1954. In 1956 he formed a company to the market non-stick cookware under the "Tefal" brand name. The durability of the early coatings was poor, but improvements in manufacturing have made these products a kitchen standard. The surface of the frying pan is not as tough as the metal and the use of metal utensils (e.g. spatulas) can permanently mar the coating and degrade its non-stick property. Non-stick frying pans featuring teflon coating can stand above about 240 °C (464 °F), a temperature that easily can be reached in minutes. But if reach at the higher temperatures, non-stick coatings will be decompose and give out toxic fumes. Otherwise, the electric frying pan or electric skillet incorporates an electric heating element into the frying pan itself and so can function independently off of a cooking stove. A modern electric frying pan has an additional advantage, which is it can heat regulation. Which mean can adjust the temperature of the frying pan to prevent overcook the food. With the perfection of the thermostatic control, the electric skillet became a popular kitchen tools. I would like to say, frying pan was quite a nice, cheap, save environment kitchen tool. Frying pans have a lot of function and secret all waiting us to explore.
