Please recommend a nonstick-ish skillet for me!

I cook scrambled eggs for my one year old daughter and myself maybe five times a week. Due to the possible health concerns I would prefer to avoid the teflon type of nonstick pans.

Previously I used an old circulon skillet, but I disliked the ring pattern and I wasn't sure about the safety of it since it appeared that the finish had worn off due to being placed in the dishwasher. I then purchased one of those de buyer blue steel pans from world market, and it worked pretty well other than being a little larger and deeper than I needed. However, I'm pretty lazy and the pan was left in the sink for two days. When I went to clean it I found several spots where the finish had worn off plus it caused rust spots to form on a dish that was also in the sink with it. So clearly I am too lazy for any type of pan that requires special treatment. Cast iron is obviously out.

The magical skillet I'm looking for doesn't have to be super non-stick as I use a lot of butter, but I would like it to function better than my stainless steel pan. I can deal with hand washing, though dishwasher safe would be great. If possible I would like to avoid a chinese-made product. I'm looking for something around 8". Any ideas?
