11 or 13 inch frypan?

cmm3 | Dec 12, 2013 07:21 PM

I'm somewhat new to cooking for myself; I'm trying to eat out less.

Is there any reason I should not get a 13 inch frypan? When I cook chicken breasts, for example, I fill my frypan with them, I usually can get two or three breasts in a 12" frypan. But is this the way you are supposed to cook? Or should I only fry one breast at a time (even if I'm cooking a total of three breasts)? I'm a strong guy so the extra weight of the 13 inch frypan doesn't bother me...

In short, I want to know if there's a reason I shouldn't get the largest frypan that Sitram offers. This may be a silly question...

I'm planning on buying the Sitram catering line (copper core and dishwasher safe)...
