A3_5 Golden Frying Pan: Is it Worth it?

Hannah Routledge, Adam Yeo, Dikshita Meggi, Jacob Lewis


In this paper it is investigated whether the ’Golden Frying Pan’ from ’Team Fortress 2’ would be worth the high price point if it were to be used for cooking rather than in battle. It is found that a regular cast iron skillet is approximately 252 times more cost efficient and 1.34 times more energy efficient, though the golden pan has a higher thermal conductivity meaning that the heat will spread throughout the pan more evenly providing more even cooking. It is deduced that over-all the Golden Frying Pan would not be worth the investment if it were to be used as a regular cooking vessel rather than in battle.
