New (to me) Omelet Pan--Who Woulda Thunk It?

kaleokahu | Oct 29, 2012 11:23 AM

So there I was, wasting time on eBay, and I see this thick aluminum omelette pan. I mean T-H-I-C-K, even thicker than the famous, so-called Julia Child pan sold by Pan Shop of Boston. Marked "Rudolf Stanish Omelet Pan" on the bottom. No bids. So I bid the minimum on a whim, and won for $9.99. I measured it on arrival, and it mikes slightly >6mm. To give you some idea of the heft, this 10" pan weighs 3.3 lbs in *aluminum*.

Cleaned her up, seasoned her last night per the PSB instructions, and WHOA! *Less* stick than non-stick.

Had no idea who Rudolf Stanish is/was. Then I find this: http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/l... Quite the story!

Anyone else have one of these, or similar extra-thick dedicated egg pan? Anyone know who actually produced the pan? Do you observe the rule that it is NEVER washed, just wiped out?

Based on this honeymoon omelet, I think my last remaining PTFE (a Swiss Diamond) is getting donated to the thrift store.

Aloha,
Kaleo
