What experts didn't like
The Tramontina has a smaller cooking surface (it’s about 8½ inches across) than our main pick, which can be limiting.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Ease of cleaning was poor.
- Consumer Reports
At 8.25 inches, the Tramontina had the smallest interior of all the pans we tested. As a result, the skillet felt a little crowded when searing a package of chicken thighs, and that lack of breathing room made browning more inconsistent.
