Iowa's Largest Frying Pan - Brandon Community Center

The pan was built in 2004 by men of the local community of Brandon. It took these men a little over forty volunteer man hours to construct the frying pan. It is made out of scrap steel that was donated by local farmers. The pan was originally built as a promotional tool for the Brandon Area Community Club’s semi-annual fundraiser, the "cowboy breakfast". They chose to build a large frying pan because the cowboy breakfast is cooked over open flames using mostly cast iron frying pans.

The frying pan is calculated to hold 88 times as much as a 10-inch frying pan.

528 eggs (44 dozen) 352 pork chops (1/2 pound chops) 88 pounds of bacon 440 hamburgers (1/2 pound Burgers)

It is quantitatively 10 times the size of a 10-inch frying pan.
