I've had it! Best pan's you know of?

I'm about to flip my lid, or rather toss em all out!
I've been using the same REALLY NICE skillets/pans for the past 8 years that I got for a wedding present. The pans stick, burn, scratch, you name it and I HATE THEM! They also have a black lining, not Teflon, that's supposed to have lasted FOREVER but it's peeling. I'm scared to death of Teflon.
This morning I fried up some scrambled eggs and they tasted AWFUL and stuck. THEY ARE GONNERS!
My mom also got me a bunch of Le Cruset for Christmas that I can't stand either. I'm always worried about the enamel, they stick, and are too heavy to drain. I've also got a few really good iron skillets but I want something easier/lighter/non sticky.

What do you use? Best pans for scrambled eggs? Best frying/sauteing pans? HELP!
Anyone tried those diamond coated ones on TV? HA HA!!

What do you mean what do I mean?

I don't have one of these yet, but the most popular and highest rated "frying pan" on Amazon is:

Http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Textured-Ceramic-Non-Stick-Coating/dp/B005473FMO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343322353&sr=8-1&keywords=frying+pan

Just added to my wishlist, seems like a wicked frying pan... a tad bit pricey though!

Calphalon non-stick for eggs

As far as everything else, I like hard-anodized from Calphalon or cheapy stainless steel pans that I inherited from my MIL Farberware I believe? She had then a good 10+ years, I've had them 15+ and they still look new and they get USED around here.

I don't like our Le Cruset either for one reason - it is so heavy! All-clad is my favorite - its great stuff, but I have recently discovered Tramontina. It is literally 1/4 the price of All-clad....and a lot of it is made in the US. And, they make a great fry pan. I found it at Wal-mart, believe it or not (I thought it was Wal-mart's stricked policy to buy Chinese made, only). I won't buy Tramontina unless I can first physically see it to ensure it is US made. What kind of irks me is...All-clad started making some of their lids in China. Honestly! I do not eat or cook off of anything made in China.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Lagostina, best pans, skillets, flatware for the price. However they do not make cast iron frying pans that I am aware of, but everything else I own is that brand, very quality cookware.

I bought this set last year, love it, love it, love it http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-77-10-Stainless-10-Piece-Cookware/dp/B00008CM68
Heats even even using gas or electric and if you ever burn something, just put water in the pan a few hours, come of easy.

Plus no worries about the non-stick surfaces scratching or causing health problems



.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Oh myyy.. haha

Emeril's line of pots and pans are great. Cast iron is too but if you season it, you can't wash it with soap only water (which is a pain) and they're also heavy so they can hurt your wrists.
