Hey ladies, I could really use some help choosing a new go-to frying pan. I'll preface this with saying I'm no ace in the kitchen, so don't laugh at me!
The pan I have now is used daily to cook just about everything from pancakes to stir fry. It's this Calphalon. It's been a perfect go-to pan for us for all of our needs. It's also the most I've ever spent on a single pan, expecting it to last for a long time. I took good care of it, always washing it by hand, but everything seems to stick to it now and it looks as if "someone" has used a sharp utensil on it.
Anyhoo.... I'd like to buy a new pan and am wondering what to get. I've heard about the dangers of teflon and other non-stick coatings, so I think it might be good to avoid those, but I worry with my sub-par cooking skills that I really need the non-stick help.
I'm willing to spend a little more on it, if it will last a long time. Or maybe I should stick (no pun intended) with the cheaper teflon and just replace it on an annual basis? I hate to send so much waste to the landfill. :(
Any advice or suggestions? TIA!
