The pan weighs 1.31 pounds. It is 16.54 inches long x 8.66 inches wide x 2.05 inches high. We couldn’t find anything on the Winco site for recommendations on cooking with this pan, but we asked some of our Chef friends and they said they loved this pan inside the commercial kitchen and at home. It’s perfect for both forms of cooking you mentioned, but they wanted us to let you know that with this style of pan, food will stick at first. However, once seasoned (much like a cast iron pan), it will be great – you just have to be patient with it.
