Default Best, Most Durable Non-Stick Fry Pan

I'm tired of crappy non-stick fry pans that I have to replace every 6-12 months. I'm looking for something that is very durable. They all work great when they are new but food starts sticking after a while.

Please read the title of this post and its contents carefully. I am looking for non-stick. Please don't answer with posts about cast iron skillets.

I'd like something that's 14" with a lid, but 12-12.5 inches would also be considered.

I don't care if your mother and grandmother swore by cast iron. I don't care that you use cast iron and have one for fifty years and it still works great. I don't care that cast iron is preferred by professional chefs. I am looking for extremely durable, NON-STICK.

It seems that so many reviews are about the best value. That seems to me to translate into something cheap that lasts a bit longer than other cheap pans.

How do you know which ones is BEST? I don't think the OP wants to have to buy each one to determine which one is the best.

MY own curiosity was piqued enough for me to look at Amazon's own recommendations. It looks like T-Fal may be the winner. It is cheap enough to buy, try, and toss if you don't like it.

I have NEVER found a pan that lasts forever and I have given in to defeat, I buy cheap $12 pans and throw them out when they are done.

T-Fal wins in some reviews but I understand that there are some that last a very long time and you can even use metal utensils in them.

It has always been my philosophy, no matter how broke we were when we were young, to use the best foods and best equipment. Otherwise why do all that work if you don't get the best results?

Let me know after you have tried one or two. Williams-Sonoma is my favorite kitchen store. It is expensive there but the ambience throughout the store is so wonderful that it makes me want to go home to do some cooking (and I don't even like to cook!)

You are starting a good thread here.

I purchased a American made All Clad 12" with cover from Amazon 2 months ago for same reasons you stated. For me it was worth the investment as I use it often. I had a 12" Cuisinant that was supposed to be a great non stick but it stuck terribly. So far I'm very pleased with new one.

Check out the Farberware Millennium non-stick fry pan.
I have gotten 15 plus years of use from them, since I don’t abuse them!
What I believe really breaks down non-stick coatings is using too high a heat level.
The Millenium pans do not require high burner settings due to their construction.
