Pan head combination screw draw their name from the appearance of their head, which is similar to an upside-down frying pan. Pan head combination screw are a common head type of non-countersunk screw head used in wood screws, machine screws , self-drilling screws, and self-tapping screws.
Pan combination screw have a recessed socket with wide heads, a flat bearing surface, high vertical, chamfered, or curved sides, and a flat or slightly domed top surface. The socket is basically a slot, particularly for wood and self-tapping screws. Hexagon sockets are most common for machine screws.

Pan combination screw are used in a wide range of applications, including:
The big diameter of pan head combination screw, combined with high edges, provides a large, deep socket. This enables high torque during assembly while minimizing pressure which could result in damage to the screw. The flat underside of a pan head screw provides a large mating surface area, which allows a firm hold, even with enlarged holes, and minimizes crushing.
The flat or slightly domed profile provides a basic trim finish for decorative applications and minimizes the risk of catching the pan combination screw head while in use. Pan head screws employ a variety of socket types or drive designs, including slotted, Phillips, hexagon socket, Pozidriv, Torx, and square drive. They may be zinc-plated, white-coated, black-coated and non-coated stainless steel.
Pan head machine screws are typically used where a hex head might catch or would appear out of place, but where the material is not thick enough to support a countersunk hole. Pan heads with slotted sockets are also best suited to light applications and can be fastened more conveniently using a screwdriver.
Pan head combination screw are similar to round heads, truss heads, and binding heads, although pan heads have largely replaced these other heads in modern screws. Round-head screws have a domed head and a small bearing surface, applications where using round heads demand a high level of aesthetics. Truss head screws have an extra-wide head and a low profile, applications using truss head screws require coverage for large holes or extra-low clearance.
Binding head screws have an extra deep head and socket, applications using binding head screws require extra high tightening torque.
