I'm a home cook and I cook for two unless Holidays or Birthdays are involved. The skillet that needs replacing is a non-stick 10" Tramontina Pro 3004. I have been very pleased with this pan for several years but the finish has just started to deteriorate. I plan to replace this pan with an 8" version of same (unless there are better alternatives), as the non-stick is primarily used for omelets and fried eggs, and get a multiply stainless steel skillet. Since I am really impressed with my Made-In 12" sauté pan, I will likely go that brand or perhaps Demeyer as I own a saucier from this company which is fantastic. Currently, I cook a lot of food in a 10" cast iron skillet and a carbon steel Wok. The Made-In sauté pan is very useful but "I" can't use it as a skillet like many seem to be able to (tossing food). Long story short, what size skillet would be more useful for the number of people I cook for....10" or 12"? I have your typical cheapie 4 burner home stove if that helps with suggestions.
