need to replace nonstick stir fry pan and don't know what to buy

addicted2cake | Oct 26, 2009 07:48 AM


For years, I've used an 11 inch analon stir fry pan. The interior has seen better days and I'd like to replace it, only I don't know what to replace it with. I use my stir fry pan mainly to cook ground meat or cut up beef and chicken along with veggies and sauce, usually a combination of chicken broth, olive oil, and tomato or an asian type sauce (different oils). I'm probably not using this pan as it was intended, as I hardly stir fry, but I love its size (about 3.5 qts), ease of use, and especially ease of clean up. It's my go to pan. Sometimes, I add pasta or rice that I've cooked in a separate pot just to coat with the sauce in the stir fry pan. Most other stir fry pans I've seen are a little smaller (10 inches) or too big for my ceramic stove top (12 inches plus). Also, I'm trying to get away from nonstick cookware. Any thoughts for a pan that will cook meat/chicken in sauces? After all these years, you'd think I would know what to buy, but there are so many choices, and good cookware being expensive, I'm a bit overwhelmed. I don't want to make a mistake. Thanks for your help.
