I am not a product reviewer, but I am a product user. I do have some opinions on what is expected and what is reality (for myself, at least).
There are some thing I would never change. I have been married for almost 20 years, and would not change that. But some things need improvement.
Ever notice how change can either be a good thing or a bad thing?
Our first stainless pans were these Circulon Commercial 10" and 12" fry pans. We have had these for 7 or 8 years. I like them, they just really have their limitations.
We just replaced them with these All-Clad non-stick 8" and 10" pans. It is so different using these. Cooking on them requires less heat, for one thing. I use 1 click short of medium. I would prefer an 8" and 12", or 10" and 12", though.
Our next stainless purchase was a Kitchen Aid 4 3/4 Qt. It is 5-6 years old. It sees a lot of action, but some dishes stick and lightly burn in this saute' pan. We have a Cuisinart 5Qt non-stick that has been our go to pan for just about everything. The pan is a little warped and the non-stick is beginning to stick.
Enter the new world...☺
The latest purchase is a Demeyere Atlantis 4 1/4 Qt. stainless with a 7 layer base. This pan is very heavy and extremely well built. There are no rivets to get in the way or provide a place for crap to accumulate. I have only made 1 dish in it so far, but the heat was VERY even across the pan. Also, at 2 clicks below medium, I had to turn it down when browning hamburger for chili.
I can't believe how efficient it is. It is very heavy like I said, so you have to be very careful , especially on a glass top.
I am very excited to put this thing through the paces and see what it can do. I feel like I just bought a Jeep CJ5 and climbed a curb...yes it did it easily, but there is so much more to come!
Anyway, enough rambling for today, tomorrow is just a short sleep away...
