I do not know if this would help anyone, but I seemed to always forget this word! To help me remember, I think of "saute" (such as you would using a pan) and it helps me remember sartén.
I just visualize one of the chef's that I have worked for with a "sauce pan" in his hand when they were not having a good night, beware the chef with a sartén.
I am from Venezuela we say "tengo un sartén", I'm Spanish speaker "una sartén" is wrong here in Venezuela
Does this word simply connote frying pan, or can it be used to refer to a pan in general?
I always see it defined as a frying pan or skillet rather rather than just pan. The word sounds a little like saute (as someone else has mentioned), so I remember it as "saute pan."
