Cooking elaborate meals that require multiple pans can be hard work. While there are many different types of gadgets that can help you save time in the kitchen — like a quality set of knives, an easy-to-use veggie chopper or a genius garlic peeler — there’s one pan that takes the cake when it comes to its time-saving qualities.

Hidden among a plethora of unique kitchen gadgets on Amazon is the Master Pan, a five-compartment skillet for cooking up to five foods at once.

Using the skillet is as simple as it looks. Even though it’s large in size at 15 inches, this pan can fit on just one burner, so the rest of your stovetop is free for other cooking needs. And because of its metallic base plate, the heat evenly distributes across the pan so each compartment cooks at the same rate.

Not only is this non-stick pan PFOA-free, making it chemical-free and safe to use, but it’s also safe to wash in the dishwasher and use in the oven up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

With more than 700 ratings and counting, it’s clear that this pan is an Amazon shopper-favorite.

While you can use the Master Pan for almost any meal, it’s a favorite for breakfast foods among reviewers.

“I’ve made eggs, steaks, pork chops, beans, chili, pancakes, tortillas, quesadillas, bacon and potatoes to name a few,” one shopper said. “Awesome to cook a full meal and only have one pan to wash instead of multiple. I would recommend a small spatula for the smaller compartments though — it’s kind of a tight fit. Overall great purchase.”

For those who are cooking for more than one person, it’s a major timesaver.

“Bought this as a Christmas gift for my dad, and he loves it!” another reviewer said. “As someone who’s passionate about cooking and cooks for our family of five, it’s such a help to him. Very well-crafted, too. A definite must-buy!”

The next time you reach for multiple pans for one meal, think again. The Master Pan is a quick solution to helping prepare meals faster.
