Upgradable Pan is a mod for Stardew Valley that promotes the once-lowly Copper Pan to the realm of true tools. The extensive code changes in this mod allow the pan to be upgraded like any other tool via the exact same mechanism–through Clint’s shop. Higher tiers of pans grant many benefits, including better panned items, more panned items, and perhaps most important of all–an increased tool range. Never get frustrated with an out of reach shiny spot again!
Besides the basics, this mod also extends the already-present special touches of the Copper pan. Find special items in certain places or during certain weather. And of course: yes, you can wear the upgraded pans on your head.
