There is no single definition that differentiates a pot from a pan, but this here are a few factors:
- Many pots have two handles, while very few pans have two handles.
- If the sides are equal to or greater than the radius of the bottom, it’s probably a pot.
- If you can fill it up with enough liquid to boil water for spaghetti, it’s probably a pot.
- If the sides are less than a 1/4th the size of the radius of the bottom, it’s probably a pan.
In conclusion, a pot can be called a pan, but a pan can’t be called a pot. Got it?
