With the 1.17 update came the addition of durability to the Frying Pan, the Cooking Pot, the Cauldron and the 2 stands the Campfire Tripod, and the Cooking Stand. All use durability at a rate of 0.125 per second when over any kind of fire wither it be a fireplace or gas stove.

This means with a durability of 200 the Frying Pan will go from Pristine to ruined when used over a flame for a total 26 minutes and 40 seconds.

In the concurrent 1.18 Experimental build all durability use is halved to 0.0625 per second this means all Cookware will last twice as long making the Frying Pan instead last for 53 Minutes, and 20 Seconds.
