World's Largest Frying Pan.

World's Largest Frying Pan (In Transition)

Field review by the editors.

Georgetown, Delaware

A surprisingly large number of big, flat, metal disks with handles lay claim to the title of World's Largest Frying Pan, or variations on the theme.

Wilmington's is unique in that it is displayed indoors, bolted to a wall inside the library and museum of the Historical Society of Delaware. It's ten feet in diameter and was responsible for frying an estimated 100+ tons of poultry over a 48-year career at the DelMarVa Chicken Festival. It was retired to its present status of worthy relic in 1998.
