Cookware 49

Proline 11" vs 12.6" any reason to go 11"?

I've wanted the Demeyere Proline skillet for quite some time and I'm finally ready to bite the bullet. I was going to get the 12.6" because I always cook extra, so minimum of 4. Four hammered veil cutlets take up a fair amount of space as do four hammered chicken breasts, and I don't want them crowded, right. If the sides were straight, there would be about 25 square inches difference in the area of the bottom of the pans, that's about one cutlet or chicken breast. I have 3 and 6 quart sauté pans and a 9.5 skillet. The six quart sauté has a 13" opening, so I have one large pan, but it's not a proline.

My dilemma is that I was planning on using some Amazon gift cards for this and now Amazon doesn't have the 12.6 proline available, but they do have the 11" for $269, which is just $20 less than the 12.6" pan. Is it worth getting the 11" pan or should I just wait and get the 12.6? I'm probably not going to purchase both. I pretty much know the answer but I would like other opinions just incase I'm missing something.

All comments are appreciated.
