Probably a better subject line than a story, the big differences in a fry pan, frypan, or frying pan versus the skillet are nominal. Skillets tend to be a bit deeper than its friend the fry pan. With a bit more depth, a skillet sometimes shows up with a lid for creating sauces at the end. When you think skillet, cast-iron is the usual material that comes to mind.

The good ol’ fry pan is basically all the same as the skillet. Being a bit more shallow allows for high temperature cooking, with better evaporation, for let’s say, a ribeye! Searing meat and finishing in the oven is a favorite task of the fry pan.
