Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Frying Pan
I visited the World's Largest Frying Pan in Rose Hill for the first time in almost twelve years. The pan is still celebrated by the good people in town, and on display for all to see. On a random Saturday at a random time, three cars, including mine, parked to see the pan. It's much the same as last time, only the handle has been propped up in an angle closely resembling that of an actual frying pan.[Greg Brown, 03/26/2013]
The world's largest frying pan looks even less like a frying pan, if that's possible, now that its handle has fallen off.[Dean Jeffrey, 07/18/2012]
This is not an actual frying pan. It is a large fire pit shaped like a frying pan. There was also a horrible stench around said frying pan. Don't waste your time.[Drew Stock, 10/04/2011]
Honestly, the sign on top of the Frying Pan is a bigger attraction. I'd say it is too bad you can't fry cheese in it because it is super cheesy. What it consists of is a large frying apparatus in a small sheltered pavilion. It is covered with a canvas. You can't even really see it, but the sign on the top of the little shelter is cool, and makes for good photos if you travel with papier mache masks...and if you don't, you should.[Billy Sugarfix, 12/22/2010]
This was such a big disappointment. I was expecting something totally different, and what I got was basically a huge fire pit with walls built around it. Thank god there was a winery there that my boyfriend and I could tour, because I would have been so upset if we drove all that way for what we saw.[Danielle, 09/01/2010]
