Cookware 85

Finally, a GREAT non-stick fry pan!

For years I have resigned myself to the routine of using an 8 inch non-stick pan for about six months or so, then throwing it away, buying a new one, and starting all over again. Didn't seem to matter much which "non-stick" surface I bought, they didn't last. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try the new "green" ceramic non-stick finish, brand name "Thermolon." The first one I bought was from Walmart, with a cushioned handle, and I would probably have stuck with it, but it was NOT induction friendly. So back it went. Well, after I gave it a trial run first. Yep, I did like the finish and it seemed super slick and super non-stick.

Ultimately, I ordered this one:

I got mine from amazon.com but couldn't figure out how to supply a url to it that didn't disclose my entire shopping history, so this place looks like a good store too...

Anyway, only time will tell how well it will hold up for the long term, but for the short term I love it! And I'm really glad I returned the lighter weight pan with the cushioned handle, because it had limits on how hot an oven it could be used in. THIS puppy is good up to a whopping 800F...!!! So now, if I ever decide to forego sous vide for steak cooking, this means I can sear in this pan and finish in a 500F oven with no sweat!

If you're looking for a great omelet pan that multi-tasks and does lots of other dishes too, I highly recommend this one! Thermolon purportedly has none of the health or safety issues that come with other non-stick finishes. What could be better than that? And if it holds up for 18 months, it will have paid for itself!
