Farberware nonstick skillet with glass lid - any good?

armagnac | Feb 5, 2010 03:01 AM

I'm looking for a nonstick skillet -12" is a bit large for my stovetop and my needs but I can live with it - and want one with a glass lid. The Farberware Cooks Kitchen Nonstick Aluminum 11" Covered Skillet / Frying Pan with Glass Lid, $25 on the Farberware site, fills the bill and would be a great buy - if the nonstick surface is any good.

I wouldn't be giving Farberware a look except that ATK rated their Millennium 12" nonstick skillet the best inexpensive one they tested. That one has no lid, and I'd prefer 11", but the review indicates that Farberware knows how to make good nonstick skillets. Don't know whether the Cooks Kitchen model one of them.

Anyone using it and have any comments to make? Or if you've found another skillet that fills the bill (nonstick, glass lid, 11" or smaller, cooks well, reasonably durable, under $50), would you tell me about it?
