First, I hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday!
I was in charge of cooking Christmas Eve dinner for 8 at my mother's. When confronted with the size of her pans, I decided that I needed a larger frying pan for my Balthazar Riesling Chicken recipe. Only choice was a Swiss Diamond 12.5" frying pan - so I bought it, having never heard of it before. It was really great - it is "non stick" but not Teflon. Granted, I used butter/olive oil in everything I cooked in it, but it seems like a wonderful addition to my existing collection.
Have other CH's heard of/used this brand? It was expensive ($125) but I was really in a bind!
