Question before buying a saute pan

NYChristopher | Jun 8, 200711:16 AM     13

A prominent New York City-based cookware store that moved from SoHo to the Village is having their annual "yard sale" this weekend (that should be enough to tip the knowledgeable without sounding like I'm pimping for the store).

I will be window shopping unless I find what I think to be a fair priced "necessary add" to my kitchen.

While I troll the online auction world for a Griswold #8 or #10 (you folks here convinced me I'd be better served with Griswold than Lodge), I started thinking about saute pans.

QUESTION: What size saute pan would you recommend for two birds?

I see All-Clad makes them in 2, 3, 4 and 6 qt. sizes.

Presumably Paderno, Sitram, Tramontina and Demeyere all come in comparable sizes

This will be my only saute pan purchase, and I rarely cook for more than two-to-four (small NYC apartment, you know) so I'd like to get it right the first time.

Brand recommendations gladly accepted, as well (I'm a total amateur, but aspiring and improving).

Thanks for your input.

Christopher
