Top End Non-Stick

product | Feb 1, 2013 02:05 PM

Shortly it will be my b-day and when asked what I wanted, I realized that my 12" non-stick fry pan (calphalon commercial) has finally bitten the dust and needs replacing. Since it will be a bit of a splurge, I'd like to get a high quality pan.

The problem I'm facing is that reviews of "the best" in this category rarely review anything that isn't in the mid range. So I am hoping to turn to this forum hoping that there might be a range of opinions on these top of the line (at least price wise) frying pans.

I don't want anything under 12". Must be non-stick. Weight is not an issue.

Here are some of the names that I have dug up for your consideration.

Swiss Diamond (diamonds in the coating? Sounds like marketing bunk)
Cristel (no handle? detachable handle?)
Eva Solo XO (11" is largest)
Scan Pan
Le Creuset
De Buyer (love the specialty handles but I can't find them in the US)

Thoughts? Opinions?
