Both skillets and frying pans have a flat bottom and they come in similar sizes. Skillets and frying pans are also similar in the way the sides are angled. They are slightly slanted and rounded, which makes it easy to flip the food in the pan. Cast iron skillets, however, have sides at a sharp angle.

One of the most surprising valuables around your home may be cast-iron cookware. Worth from $15 to $1,500, this is stuff you rarely want to sell at a yard sale. Fortunately, cookware is usually marked on the bottom with the name of the maker and the catalog or size number.
