The 8" skillet is designed to be a daily cooking companion. The smaller shape and curved interior sides promote movement and flipping, while the longer handle keeps your hands farther away from heat. Like all smithey skillets, the interior features a smooth polished finish that when seasoned is naturally non-stick. Ideal for sides, smaller meats, and the perfect fried egg, this skillet has a natural place beside its bigger siblings on the range. Use it well.
