Big pan at the Cast Iron Outlet.

Large Frying Pan

It may not be the world's biggest frying pan, but it's the biggest one we've spotted hanging on a wall. Drive by and see it in all its glory. It's just down the street from a Muffler Man.

Giant skillet.

Large Cast Iron Skillet

Large replica of a cast iron skillet on the outside of a True Value hardware store. I believe it is on Williamson Road. While looking for the Muffler Man on Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA we found this bonus RA.

[Nina Smith, 12/24/2007]

Nice sighting, but we need to be picky about big skillets and fry pans, since there are so many. Not a real skillet, so it should be on the ground for photo ops, and it should be twice as large. The big fry pans cooking World's Largest Omelettes and pies around the nation are as big, and towns proud of their giant pans are what makes them even mildly interesting.
