Thread: Nonstick Skillet Score!

    Default Nonstick Skillet Score!

    I took everyone's word for it that cheap nonstick makes more sense than
    expensive since the surface tends to deteriorate at the same rate in both.

    So I chose this Farberware after looking around and handling different
    kinds:

    But here's the thing! I got the 12-inch pictured PLUS a 10-inch skillet for
    ..... $13.99!!!! Both! Two good-sized nonstick skillets for $14!

    YAY!

    Now I just need to pick up the other pieces I want on sale.

    That hasn't been my experience. I find that middle of the road non-stick
    pans work best. Brands like Wearever are good. The cheap no-name brands
    wear out after just one or two uses and they don't conduct heat evenly.
    Spending gobs of money on a non-stick pan doesn't seem to buy anything
    more effective than moderate priced pans, so I go with the moderate
    priced ones.

    The question is how long the non-stick property will last and
    can it be restored once it stops working?

    Not bad. Sam's carries some "Bakers & Chefs" heavy aluminum pans in
    their commercial kitchen supply area that are available both in non
    stick coated and anodized version at similar price points in 2 packs. I
    picked up a couple of the non stick ones to stock my camper and have
    found them to be pretty decent. I've also become a fan of the Rubbermaid
    Commercial square lexan food storage containers they carry, not terribly
    cheap, but really nice for all the standard staple items.

    I feel terrible about throwing things away and buying new, but in the
    non-stick case, I'll do it in a heartbeat. There isn't any reason to
    spend more than the original cost of a saute pan to get it recoated
    when it is middle-of-the-road cost, anyway.

    I love my "big store" Wearever - super heavy, totally nonstick both
    inside and out. It shows little wear after dozens of crepes and
    omelets, and dishwasher attention. It was under $25 for the 8", and
    I'll toss it and buy a new one whenever this one gives out.
