If you've noticed that the frying pans in your kitchen are starting to look a little weary, it's likely time to invest in a shiny new one that's sure to kick up your cooking again. Luckily, Amazon has already started marking down tons of products ahead of Black Friday, including the highly reviewed Tramontina 12-Inch Stainless Steel Skillet.

Thanks to the tri-ply clad construction and aluminum core, the stainless steel skillet heats up quickly and evenly—so you don't have to worry about any hot spots. A riveted, ergonomic handle provides a comfortable grip for flipping and shaking. Plus the entire product is finished off with a satin-finished interior that's plenty easy to clean—it can either be slipped into the dishwasher or washed by hand with a bit of soap and water.

The 12-inch stainless steel skillet is compatible with all cooktops, including induction, and is also oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Use the skillet for just about anything, whether you're looking to sear chicken thighs or flip pancakes.

Nearly 2,000 Amazon shoppers have given the stainless steel skillet a five-star rating, noting that it's "as good as All-Clad" and calling it their "go-to pan for everything." Another shopper wrote, "They are really nice and just about as solid and heavy as the All-Clad. If I had known this I would have bought all Tramontina."

"We operate a commercial kitchen. We try to avoid [the] use of aluminum pans," one five-star reviewer shared. "We placed several of these 12-inch pans in operation last year and we have a 12-inch All-Clad pan. These are identical in heat transfer and ease of cleaning and superior in use with their insulated handles. They were also less expensive. We will use these pans for our needs from now on."

"I got this pan for culinary school and just wow!" another user explained. "I have shelves of pots and pans but none of them compare to this. They require so little heat but still get a great sear on meat. I have made several dishes which include seafood, chicken, and steak, and each dish comes out so much better because I am not having to use such high heat. Yes, it may seem like it's a little expensive, but once you cook in it you will probably throw a lot of your other pans out and get more of these."

Head to Amazon and shop the Tramontina 12-Inch Stainless Steel Skillet for just $50 before this deal ends and the sale price goes with it.
