The difference between a pot and a pan is that a pot generally has two handles, while a pan has one handle. Both are usually round or cylindrical in shape. Of course, there are exceptions. For example, a bread pan isn’t round and has no handle.


Pot(鍋)もpan(フライパンなど)も普段金属で作る料理に使う器です。違いは、大体potには取っ手が二つ、panにはひとつあります。どちらも丸いか円柱の形です。もちろん例外はあります。たとえば、パンのための器はbread panと言いますが丸くないし取っ手もありません。
