Much to my embarrassment I was preparing an omelet for a house guest and it insisted on sticking, and I mean sticking in the pan. No excuse, I knew the pan was shot. Time for a new one. Non-stick teflon doesn't seem to last very long and invariably it will take some abuse around this house shortening its life even further. My question is: would I be better off just going to a restaurant supply house and getting an inexpensive teflon pan figuring it will be replaced on a relatively frequent basis OR is there an alternative that might cost a bit more but last a great deal longer? The idea of spending All clad prices for a pan that will only last a year or so is not appealing.
