Your profile indicates that you are a beginner and in the absence of any specific information, I will naturally assume that your skills with a pan are just beginning as well. :)

That means you should choose a pan that is durable, forgiving and yet, has enough precision to allow you to progress with your cooking skills. Since I have no idea what is available in Austria, I can only suggest the sort of pan that would be suitable for you. I would suggest at least a 3 ply steel pan with a copper core. Here in the states, a good pan of that sort will cost around $140 US. I can't imagine the cost of such a pan in Austria would be much different.

Good luck. :)

Do you have any brand suggestions? Or some examples so I can compare or maybe find the same pan just from an European retailer?

Sure. But, the brands that I suggest are probably not available for shipping to your country. You will likely have to find the equivalent available where you live.

Here is a pan made by "All Clad" that is 3 ply construction but, it has an aluminum core rather than a copper core. Some would argue the benefits and drawbacks of aluminum vs. copper cores. But, at your level, its make little difference other that cost.

Here is another example of a pan made by All Clad that is 5 ply construction with a copper core. I am including this as an example of the upper levels of cookware that's available and not as a recommendation.

You can also buy cookware sets that would be ideal for a novice and yet, still be very useful later on when your skills and techniques have increased. Here is a set that has 13 pieces, steel and copper construction and aluminum cores for about $300 US for the entire set.

I have no idea why the links that I included are not showing up. But, you can do a google search using terms such as "3 ply" "copper core" "aluminum core," "steel construction" etc and find a lot of good suggestion in your price range.

Good luck. :)
