If you’re on the hunt for a piece of cookware that can do almost everything from searing to frying, you should get to know one of our favorite companies: HexClad. Our Kitchn tools editor Riddley has been a big fan of the innovative cookware brand for years, calling the HexClad 10-Inch Hybrid Pan her “go-to pan for frying and scrambling eggs, searing fish, and browning chicken thighs.” We have some very good news: The same pan Riddley reaches for every day is on major sale right now as part of HexClad’s Black Friday Sale.

Normally priced at $137, you can now grab this editor-favorite HexClad 10-Inch Hybrid Pan for $109.99 through November 29. Now that’s a great deal.

HexClad’s Hybrid Pan combines the best of tri-clad stainless steel and nonstick in one super-durable pan that can stand up to metal utensils, high oven temperatures, and, of course, the dishwasher. Riddley isn’t the only fan; Gordon Ramsay recently partnered with HexClad and lovingly refers to the cookware as the “Rolls Royce of pans.”

One of the features we love most about this pan is its unique honeycomb pattern on the cooking surface. The hexagonal design is made up of a series of stainless steel “peaks” and nonstick “valleys” that work in unison to prevent food from sticking while still using minimal cooking fat. HexClad’s nonstick ceramic coating is also free from chemicals and PFOAs. The brand’s pieces also resist scratching and flaking, which is one of the reasons they can handle metal utensils. “I frequently use my fish spatula with it, and the surface still looks like new,” says Riddley.

The Hybrid Pan’s ceramic coating is capable of performing at high temperatures up to 500°F. Inside, the three-ply construction consists of a layer of highly conductive aluminum sandwiched between two stainless steel layers, which gives it precise temperature control. You can gently cook or sear ingredients without worrying about hot spots or scorching. 

In Riddley’s words, the pan is “supremely wonderful,” but if, for some reason, you’re not happy with it, HexClad offers an impressive lifetime warranty. So pick up this hot piece of cookware (or a full HexClad 7-Piece Cookware Set) while it’s on sale and give your other pans a break — you can thank us later.
