The Frying Pan is a weapon added by the Tinkers Construct mod. They are two role items - they can both cook food and be used as a weapon. They can be crafted, modified, and repaired on a Tool Station (or Tool Forge).
To craft, you must first make both a tool rod and a pan of the material you want, and place them into the Tool Station.
Frying pans, although durable, deal very little damage when used as a weapon. They seem to knock opponents back farther than a typical sword, however.
When you shift-right click while holding a frying pan it will be placed onto the ground. Using any fuel, you can cook multiple different food items at the same time; if all the food in the frying pan are of the same nature, one piece of coal can cook up to 14 pieces of food.The Frying Pan can only cook food items, meaning it cannot cook ores or transfer Rotten Flesh into Leather. To pick up your Frying Pan again, all you need to do is break it. The pan will drop, along with anything in it.
