LC 12" Frypan or 4.5 qt cvrd Saute?

mrs.corgi | Jul 10, 2008 08:38 AM

I am working on my wedding registry and could use some cookware advice. I already have a 12" All Clad frying pan on my registry and I would like to add one other type of fry/sauté pan. I would like to stay away from non-stick so I was thinking about the LC 12" frying pan, but I recently saw the 4.5 covered sauté pan at Williams Sonoma. The sauté pan has the standard LC enamel finish on the inside, whereas the frying pan has the black satin finish. I know both pans are not non-stick, but which one would be less likely two stick of the two?

Also, for a Dutch oven should I go with round or oval? I have an oval shaped cheapo pasta pot at home and I don't know if I imagine it, but it seems like it takes longer to heat up because of it's shape. So, I kind of lean towards the round shape, thought the oval has more cooking surface I guess.

Thank you!
