When you dream about a pan, it’s often symbolic of something you are taking your time over in your waking life. You may have to wait for something but you know it will be worth it in the end. You are aware that you need to treat whatever it is with time and care or it won’t come to anything.

What can you do to make your diet work better for you to make you feel more vibrant? Another interpretation is that someone is 'grilling' you in your life at present. In other words, this person wants to ask you a lot of questions about yourself or what you’ve been doing. This could be your manager at work or a friend or family member who wants to know more about you.
