The Perfect Frying Pan for Frittatas

        Frittata is a traditional Italian omelet. It is started on the stove top like an American or French omelet, and then finished in the oven without being flipped, folded or taken out of the frying pan. The only thing you need to make a frittata is a good oven-proof frying pan. It does not need to be copper, cast iron or nonstick; just be sure the handle is not plastic or rubber coated, as it will melt and create an unwanted mess in your oven.

         I use a non-stick frying pan with a steel handle. The frying pan is equipped with a rubber sleeve that can be slipped over the handle for extra grip. I use the rubber sleeve for stove top cooking and remove it when it comes time to put the fying pan in the oven.  You can find such frying pans at any department store. Be sure to pick one up.
