A good frying pan changes everything. It helps your morning eggs slide onto your breakfast plate with ease, ensures even the first pancake is a good one, and stir-fries your veggies to perfection each time. Not to mention, it saves you time on the cleaning up end of things. All in, finding a frying pan you love can make your life at home better in lots of little ways. Still, cookware doesn’t always come cheap — but in the case of these Aldi Crofton frying pans, it actually does. 

For just $14.99, you can pick up a set of two pans (one 8-inch and one 10-inch) or one larger (12-inch) pan, in either a soft blue or peach color. The pans are featured in this week’s ALDI Finds flier, so head to your local Aldi now to upgrade your stovetop. 

No matter which size you get, the frying pans are compatible with gas, electric, glass ceramic, and halogen cooktops, and they come with a two-year warranty. And from the people that already own the pans, it sounds like they are keepers. 

“Those frying pans are literally the best. It’s all I use,” reads one comment on this TikTok showing off some of Aldi’s new weekly finds. 

“I love those frying pans. Cool, great & easy cleanup. Aldi needs to bring out some matching pans,” agrees another.

“Need the pink cookware from Crofton!!” says another comment. 

Start building your collection now, and fingers crossed Aldi comes out with some other sizes and colors in coming months. Until then, your sponges will thank you for no longer have to scrape egg crust from your worn out frying pan. 

If you can’t make it to an Aldi but are still on the hunt for a solid new frying pan, check out this GreenPan Rio option from Target. This set comes with an 8-inch and an 11-inch pan for $33.99 total. Though it is twice the price of the Crofton version, it touts almost 700 reviews with a five-star average rating, including one that succinctly states: “Best nonstick pan ever.”
