I've decided to get my mother a piece of cookware (either frypan or saute pan) for the holidays.
While she's probably never made a pan sauce in her life, I know she'll appreciate a piece that cooks evenly, effectively, and gives her little cleanup trouble.
I'm going to the Home Shopping Network employee store to reap the discounts. I'm sure I'll encounter all the celebrity chef lines as well as some lesser known ones. Unfortunately, I won't have access to the trustworthy Chowhound public while I'm perusing. So I need some advice on selecting a worthy piece?
Also, anyone have any comments on the new Green Pans?
