Skillet comparison - OC Register via Chicago Tribune

This may have been covered some time in the past, but the Orange County (CA) Register, ran an article this morning about a comparison run by the test kitchen of the Chicago Tribune. In what was much like one of those TV dramas in which the ending is obvious from the first scene, they compared six different skillets, ranging in price from $160 down to $12. They prepared eggs, chicken, and browned some onions in each skillet.

To summarize:

Viking Professional - ($160) ranked #2

AllClad Copper Core - ($144) ranked poorly, cooked unevenly.

Calphalon Tri-Ply ($70) - the eggs stuck badly

Emerilware ($50) very poor rersults

Cuisinart Chefs Classic ($50) decent results

And the runaway winner ? -
Lodge Cast Iron ($12)

Would most hounds agree ?

The link is below, but you need to register to read the article. Didn't try the Tribune site... it may be there with less hassle.
