Frying pan

If you’re in the market for a frying pan, a saucepan or any other cooking pot that you want to transfer from your hob to your oven, then you’re in the right place.

We’ve listed some of the best hob-to-oven pans on the market right now just below.

However, you might be wondering what makes a pan suitable for transferring to an oven. Certain characteristics make a pan perfect for using on the hob and then being transferred to the oven safely.

What pans can go from the stove to the oven?

We’ve written an in-depth article on what kinds of frying pans can be put in the oven here. If you want to understand what makes a pan oven-safe, be sure to read that article. It goes into loads of detail about the best materials that pans should be made from to ensure they are perfectly safe in the oven and will provide the results you like.

Just before we get to the best hob-to-oven pans on the market right now, we just want to discuss whether Teflon can be used in the oven. We briefly talked about Teflon and other non-stick coatings in the other article, but we thought it needed a bit more detail here.

Non-stick coatings like Teflon are typically rated to a temperature of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that most non-stick coatings are perfectly useable in traditional ovens at typical cooking temperatures.

Also, most pans made from stainless steel, copper, cast iron and even most aluminium pans can also be transferred to the oven. As long as these pans don’t have plastic handles, they can be transferred without any issues at all.

But even plastic handled pans can be used in the oven with the magical hack of wrapping the handles in paper towels and foil, discussed in the other article here.

Now that we have covered non-stick options like Teflon a bit more, it is time to find out which hob to oven pans are the best on the market. Don’t worry, we will be covering more about the best materials that pans should be made from and more in the info below.
