A larger skillet is a useful tool to save time in the kitchen because it's easy to saute chicken breasts for the whole family at once, or create a one-skillet meal that cuts down on prep and after-dinner cleanup. This skillet not only looks great while it's in use, but it also features a convenient helper handle, which makes it less stressful when it's time to lift the skillet off the stove to serve or when removing it from the oven. Since 1900, Farberware has brought performance, convenience and reliability to countless kitchens at an affordable price. The SmartGlide collection continues those traditions while improving upon them with new technology for today's busy cooks. The cookware features DuPont Teflon Plus nonstick coating in the unique SmartGlide Nonstick System. Farberware's engineers shaped the nonstick onto a dimpled surface, improving the nonstick's durability and creating air pockets that transfer heat to food quickly. The result is cookware that warms evenly and food that is beautifully browned, not burned. The strong handles provide a comfortable grip and the helper handle is a welcome addition, making transporting the skillet safe and easy. Farberware has been able to add these technological advances without sacrificing convenience – this cookware is oven safe to 350-degree F and dishwasher safe for swift and simple cleanup.
